Tuesday Morning Commute Will Be Slippery

Winter continues to hold Indiana tightly in its grip, with blowing snow and more below zero wind chills threatening the Tuesday morning commute.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory from 1 a.m. through 11 a.m. Tuesday morning for most of Central Indiana.

The NWS says 2 to 4 inches of snow are possible, with the heaviest amounts expected to the south and east of Indianapolis.

“Snow will become widespread after midnight and continue through the remainder of the night,” the NWS said in its bulletin. “While the snow will taper off early Tuesday, winds will increase with gusts around 30 mph expected.”

That could lead to a difficult morning rush hour Tuesday. Roads will be slick and the blowing snow may reduce visibility in areas. The winds will also drive wind chills from near zero to 10 below zero, according to the NWS.

Cities included in the advisory are Anderson, Muncie, Indianapolis, Shelbyville, Bloomington, Columbus, Bedford and Seymour.
