NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) — The National Weather Service has posted winter storm warnings for several southern Indiana counties and says they could receive 4 to 9 inches of snow by Saturday morning, making travel dangerous.

The affected counties all lie along the Ohio River between Evansville and the Louisville, Kentucky, metropolitan area. It says the eastern counties in that area could receive 5-9 inches of snow, significant ice accumulations and gusty winds up to 35 mph could bring near-whiteout conditions Friday.

Counties closer to Evansville were forecast to receive about 4 inches of snow by Friday evening.

The weather service also posted a winter storm watch for nearby Indiana counties and says significant snowfall might occur there.
