La Porte County Gets the Local Lake Effect

Share this post

Parts of northwest Indiana are digging out from several inches of lake effect snow.   Winter preparedness week in Indiana is next week, but for many Region residents, winter got here Tuesday in a big way, in the first major snow event of the season. The lake effect snow machine spent a good deal of time over the easterm side of northwest Indiana, specifically La Porte County.  Meanwhile, Porter, Starke, and Jasper Counties, which all had lake effect snow advisories, got some snow, and there was sunshine in north Lake County.
Some totals through 5 pm EST Tuesday evening from the National Weather Service Northern Indiana office, showed nine inches in Kingsbury in La Porte County, and about eight inches in La Porte and Rolling Prairie... just north of there, north of the Indiana/Michigan state line, parts of Berrien County got 14-to-17 inches of snow.
