Central Indiana under winter storm warning until Monday a.m.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Central Indiana is under a winter storm warning until Monday morning. That system could create a messy weekend that could affect Sunday plans and Monday morning’s commute.

Forecast 8 expects 4 to 8 inches of snow to fall by Monday morning. Areas north of I-70 may get 2 to 4 inches of snow. A wintry mix with ice to the south could mean power outages for counties in southern Indiana.

Freezing rain was reported from Lafayette to Peru to Fort Wayne late Saturday night.

Indianapolis Department of Public Works was already pre-treating roads in anticipation of the winter storm.

Saturday, Hoosiers spent the day stocking up for winter essentials.

The snow on Sunday into Monday may get us the record for snowiest years ever in Indianapolis. We are at third place with 52.3 inches. 58.2 inches is the record set in 1981-82.

Since Dec. 1, seven winter weather advisories have been issued and five winter storm warnings have been issued. The pending winter storm is included in those five warnings. Central Indiana has received more than one inch of snow on 14 separate days this season.
