Blizzard Warning Canceled; Travel Restrictions In Place

All winter weather advisories and warnings have expired.

TRAVEL UPDATE 6:20 P.M.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is maintaining a map of those counties which currently have travel bans in place.  As of 6:20 Wednesday night, Monroe County has been removed from that list, but there are still 12 affected counties, as Wayne County has been added.

TRAVEL UPDATE 6:15 P.M.

Monroe County emergency management officials have lifted the county’s travel restrictions, effective immediately.  The restrictions had been slated to be in place until Friday morning, but roads are now reported as passable, meaning anyone wishing to drive may now do so legally, though caution is still advised.  Other such advisories may be lifted as the evening progresses and road crews clear main thoroughfares of snow.

WEATHER UPDATE 3:15 P.M.

The blizzard warning is canceled and a winter weather advisory is now in effect until 7 P.M. Forecasters with the National Weather Service say blowing and drifting snow will continue through early evening. Many roads will remain snow covered overnight.

Snow will end by 9 P.M., while blowing and drifting conditions should end by 7 P.M. Wind chill values will drop to 10 degrees above zero.

WEATHER UPDATE 3:45 P.M.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service are predicting an extreme winter storm to impact holiday travel throughout central and southern Indiana. A blizzard warning is in effect from 1:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Wednesday due to the possibility of 14 inches of snow in some areas along with wind gusts to 40 mph. Wind chill values will also drop to 10 degrees.

Area snowfall amounts range from 8 to 12 inches near Indianapolis, 10 to 14 inches throughout the Terre Haute, Bloomington and Columbus areas and 4 to 8 inches further south near Paoli, Salem and Jasper.

The Indianapolis area has not seen heavy snow since 2009 when 12.6 inches of snow fell.

A blizzard warning means severe weather conditions are expected including poor visibilities and whiteout conditions making travel extremely dangerous.

We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available on the changing weather conditions.
