Crews are battling snow once again.

Heavy snow that pounded much of Central Indiana has left roadways slick and resulted in a number of accidents.  State police estimate the number to be in the thousands.  Police are pleading with motorists to slow down and allow themselves extra travel time as the snow lingers.  INDOT spokesperson Harry McGinity says the biggest fight his crews have faced has been the wind, not the snow.

“You could plow a 2-2 1/2 hour snow route and by the time you got back, it was completely covered again,” said McGinity.

The heavy snow, high winds, and cold temperatures also led to dozens of school closings and cancellations.  The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for parts of Northern Indiana, where heavy lake effect snow was expected to drop an additional five to ten inches of snow today.  Meanwhile much of Central Indiana remains under a winter weather advisory that is set to expire at one.
