...Light Freezing Rain and Snow Will Impact the Region Today and

Freezing rain...possibly mixed with light snow will expand across
Central Indiana from the southwest this morning. The mixed
precipitation is expected to increase in coverage through late
morning Sunday before changing over to rain and diminishing in
coverage during the afternoon. The greatest impacts are expected
across southern portions of central Indiana. Ice accumulations are
expected to be less than a tenth of an inch. Only minor snow
accumulations...less than one half of an inch...are possible.
This may cause a thin layer of ice on untreated surfaces and will
likely result in slick spots on roads...bridges and overpasses
through early afternoon Sunday.

Another round of freezing rain...likely mixed with snow is
possible late Sunday night and Monday. Locations north of
Interstate 70 are most likely to receive freezing rain and snow.
Again...precipitation amounts will be light with a renewed thin layer
of ice causing slick spots again on untreated surfaces Monday

Use caution if traveling on this morning or Monday morning...and
stay aware of the latest forecast on this developing weather
