Predicted snowfall amounts from the National Weather Service, Indianapolis

4:28 P.M. UPDATE

Seven to ten inches of snow may blanket the north side of the Indianapolis metro area northward as the latest winter storm moves in. Current indications from the National Weather Service in Indianapolis call for five to eight inches of snow along the I-70 corridor. Portions of southern Indiana could see three to five inches of snow along with a thin sheet of ice and possibly some sleet.

Weather officials have issued a Winter Storm Warning from 1 p.m. Tuesday through 1 p.m. Wednesday for all of central Indiana. The heaviest snow is expected to fall Tuesday afternoon until 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Travel conditions may be hazardous due to blowing and drifting snow. Wind chills of -10 to -15 are possible Wednesday night into Thursday night.

Governor Pence has directed the Indiana Department of Transportation to ready itself for a full callout across most of the state.

“As severe winter weather continues, INDOT remains fully prepared to keep the interstates, U.S. highways and state routes open and as safe as possible for emergency responders,” Pence states in a press release issued today. “We encourage Hoosiers to follow county travel advisories and not to put themselves or their local emergency responders in harm’s way.”

INDOT will deploy more than 800 yellow plow trucks to begin alternating 12-hour shifts on state highways before the storm moves through the state.
