A fast-moving storm system brought travel-disrupting snow to the Northeast late Thursday, but it will turn out to be only an appetizer to the "main course" ahead this weekend.
According to the National Weather Service, snow will overspread the area this afternoon and continue into tonight. Total snowfall accumulations of four to seven inches can be expected for Whitley County today and overnight Friday, with continuing frigid temperatures.
It will be a perfect weekend for the Fire & Ice WinterFest on the Courthouse Square in downtown Columbia City.
