Motorists Urged to Use Caution

(La Porte County, IN) - A mixture of light snow, freezing drizzle and rain came down overnight.  The temperatures have also nose-dived.  Drivers, especially on the county roads, are advised to use caution.


Duane Werner, Superintendent of the La Porte County Highway Department, said there is ice on the roads, especially out in the rural areas in some locations.  He said drivers should be able to reach their destinations as long as they slow down and do other things like start breaking early while approaching intersections.


Werner said there wasn’t as much blowing snow as expected because of the high moisture

content of the snow and glaze on top of the snow cover from plummeting temperatures.


It was about 10 degrees at 7 a.m.  According to Staff Meteorologist Wayne Mahar, the high temperature is expected to reach just 16 degrees today with below zero temperatures at night on some days in the forecast over the next week.
