From the Indiana State Police, 3:40 p.m. Tuesday, March 5:

As daylight changes to dusk then darkness, temperatures are falling in the area. Conditions in the Lowell State Police District which includes Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Newton, Jasper, Pulaski and Starke Counties are as follows.

Road conditions on I-65 and I-80/94 are wet, and snow covered in areas with bridges and overpasses starting to become slick as the temperatures drop. US, State and County roads are becoming snow covered and slick due to the change over from a wintery mix to snow. Troopers have covered a number of crashes and slide-offs since early afternoon.

Motorist should use caution when commuting back to their home from work this evening. Leave plenty of room between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Slow down and give yourself plenty of time to get home. Avoid travel if it is not necessary.
