(La Porte County, IN) - There’s been some freezing precipitation this morning in La Porte County and southwest Michigan.
Before sunrise, there was sleet in New Buffalo and a mixture of rain and snow in the Rolling Prairie area.
There was enough freezing precipitation early this morning for there to be light slush covering the pavement on Indiana 2 in the Rolling Prairie area. Later in the morning, tiny flakes of snow or ice appeared to be falling in La Porte.
Duane Werner, Superintendent of the La Porte County Highway Department, said it’s a little early to get trucks ready for plowing. However, he said a few trucks were made winter-ready because of the weather forecast calling for freezing precipitation.
“We got a handle of trucks equipped with our salt spreaders just in case,” Werner said.
