An extended period of light snow will impact the advisory area starting this evening and continuing into Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Light snow is expected to overspread the area on Saturdday night but will pick up in intensity during the overnight hours into Sunday morning. Snow will continue through Sunday evening. The period of heaviest snow is expected from overnight Saturday night through Sunday afternoon.

Storm total snowfall accumulations from Saturday night through Sunday night of 6 to 10 inches with localized higher amounts possible.

Locations south of U.S. 6 may see lesser amounts as temperatures warm to near or just above freezing allowing for some melting of the snow as well as the potential of rain mixing at times.

The snow will cause limited visibility and slippery conditions on untreated roads Saturday night through Sunday across the warning area.

The Indiana Department of Transportation on Saturday advised travelers facing snowy road conditions to reduce speeds and keep a safe distance between vehicles, especially around snow plows.
