Snow and Dangerous Ice Accumulation Sunday Night

A storm system will bring a large area of precipitation Sunday night into Monday.  The largest concern will be accumulating ice across the Ohio River Valley. An ice storm warning has been issued for the Indianapolis Metro. Current indication are that 0.2"-0.3" of ice will accumulating on surfaces below freezing, including untreated roadways, in the outlined darker pink. This storm has the potential to bring widespread power outages and school cancellations. Outside of central Indiana, winter weather advisories have been issued for areas near or north of the Ohio River for a light glaze of ice.  Meanwhile areas further north will see accumulating snow on the order of a few inches, nothing these areas cannot handle, but it will still impact travel. Be sure to take it slow and monitor the forecast if you plan to travel over the next 12-24 hours in these areas.
