The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for most of central and southern Indiana beginning this evening through Friday evening. Forecasters are predicting four to eight inches of combined snow and sleet beginning late this afternoon and lasting through Friday night.
Freezing rain is expected during certain points over the next 24 hours, making driving conditions more dangerous.
INDOT spokesman Nathan Riggs says they prepare all year for winter weather, and he reminds drivers to be cautious when heading out in harsh winter conditions.
“Just being prepared before you leave, know the conditions, listening to the weather forecast and traffic before you leave the house can save you a lot of trouble down the road,” Riggs said.
The most intense snowfall of the storm is expected Friday afternoon.
