INDIANAPOLIS — Snowfall amounts across Indiana range from nearly 9 inches in northwestern Indiana to 1.7 inches at the National Weather Service office in Indianapolis.

The weather service says 8.8 inches of lake-effect snow has fallen in Portage, about 8 miles east of Gary.

Other snowfall amounts include at least 4 inches in Peru and Huntington, about 3.5 inches in Fort Wayne and Lafayette and 2 inches in Indianapolis' northern suburbs.

Hundreds of churches canceled Sunday services because of the snow and slippery driving conditions.

The weather service says a winter weather warning remains in effect for central Indiana with total accumulations of 4 to 6 inches of snow and sleet in the northern part of the region and 3 to 6 inches of snow and sleet in south central Indiana.
