4:00 PM UPDATE
Forecasters at the National Weather Service are predicting up to 1 inch of snow will cover south central Indiana by midnight. Preliminary storm reports indicate one inch of snow has already fallen in Monroe County and one and a half inches in Lawrence County.

Further north, a winter weather advisory is in effect until 1 AM Wednesday. Meteorologist Dave Tucek with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis says visibilities may be rapidly reduced at times during snow bursts.

“That includes areas roughly along and north of a line from Crawfordsville over towards Fishers and up to the Muncie and New Castle areas. In these locations anticipating 2 to 4 inches of snowfall by the time it winds down sometime toward the midnight hour,” Tucek says.

Motorists should use caution and allow for extra travel time due to slick road conditions.

A Flood Watch remains in effect today as additional rainfall on already saturated soils may lead to localized flooding.
