Get ready for another winter storm.
The National Weather Service has upgraded a winter weather advisory to a winter storm warning for Central Indiana, effective from 7 p.m. Friday until 6 p.m. Saturday.
The NWS predicts 5 to 7 inches of snow, mainly along and north of Interstate 70 and says locally higher amounts will be possible.
The snow is expected to begin Friday evening across the western parts of Central Indiana before spreading across the rest of the region by midnight. The NWS says the snow will taper off from west to east Saturday afternoon.
The NWS also included this reminder:
“A winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in an emergency. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.”
The warning includes the following counties: Carroll, Warren, Tippecanoe, Clinton, Howard, Fountain, Montgomery, Boone, Tipton, Hamilton, Madison, Delaware, Randolph, Vermillion, Parke, Putnam, Hendricks, Marion, Hancock, Henry, Vigo and Clay.
The rest of the state is under a winter weather advisory.
