FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - Area residents were strongly encouraged to stay off the roads Tuesday following the biggest 24-hour snowfall seen in years.
The 1-2 punch of snow on Monday -- an early round, followed by a heavy and long-lasting second one -- put streets under a thick blanket of white.
The snow that fell is very fluffy and will be prone to blowing and drifting. Temperatures overnight fell to the single-digits and windchill dropped to well below zero making it a dangerous situation.
Anyone who must travel is urged to use caution and bring supplies that will assist in the event of a breakdown or stuck-vehicle situation.
Fort Wayne's NBC is updating conditions throughout the day on the air and online.
