The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued winter weather advisories for most counties from the Lafayette area to the Ohio River. NWS is calling for a range of one-to-four inches of snow across the state, with locally higher amounts possible. Heavier snow is expected along and south of the I-70 corridor.


INDOT will be at a full or partial call out in most areas, with more than 500 trucks treating state highways, interstates and U.S. routes by Friday evening. Crews will remain active for the duration of the snow event and afterward to continue cleanup efforts.


Snow is expected to begin late Friday morning or early afternoon, depending on location, and continue through the evening hours. Warm pavement temperatures may limit roadway impacts to start, but heavy snowfall rates and colder temperatures may result in snow-covered roads, causing difficult travel.


Motorists should closely monitor forecasts and consider travel carefully. Remember to slow down, increase following distance, allow extra time to reach destinations and give plow trucks plenty of room to work.


Check real-time travel conditions and view traffic and snow plow cameras online at 511in.org or via INDOT's TrafficWise app. Regular updates will also be shared on INDOT's social media channels. Check for travel advisories in your area at in.gov/dhs/traveladvisory.
