Roads could become difficult to navigate by Tuesday evening.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service say a winter storm is taking aim on central Indiana. Residents may expect a wintry mix of rain and snow beginning as early as tonight.

Then, a mixed bag of precipitation on Tuesday will eventually give way to all snow by Tuesday night. At this time, four inches to six inches of snow is possible over northern sections of the state, with two to five inches possible in central Indiana and up to two inches of snow possible further south. Some light icing will also be possible over central and northern areas of the state.

A winter storm watch is in effect for northern parts of the state while a winter storm advisory is in effect at 7 a.m. Tuesday until 7 a.m. Wednesday for much of central Indiana including Bloomington, Columbus and Terre Haute.

Forecasters say they are still uncertain regarding the track of the system which would alter precipitation types and amounts.
