(La Porte County, IN) - Snow and frost is in the forecast. According to forecasters, rain mixed with snow is expected to start Tuesday afternoon then change to all snow. Just an inch or two of snow accumulation is predicted.
La Porte County Highway Department Superintendent Duane Werner says his crews focused recently on spring and summer related road work are ready for a quick late season transition to plowing snow, if necessary. “Our plows are still easily accessible right now if we need them,” he said. Werner said some of the trucks are still equipped with machines to spread salt and other materials.
The forecast also calls for frost early Wednesday and Thursday with low temperatures predicted in the upper 20’s. Frost could mean crop losses for fruit growers because of the potential damage sub-freezing temperatures can have on the blooms in the trees.
