Indiana and Michigan transportation officials are preparing for a blast of wintry weather that could affect travel.

The National Weather Service says up to 3 inches could fall in parts of central and southern Indiana through Thursday evening. The weather system is expected to start in the eastern part of the state and move west.

About 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected to fall along the state border, according to ABC 57 Meteorologists Tom Coomes and Greg Bobos.

The Indiana Department of Transportation has been monitoring conditions since Tuesday evening with patrols looking for icy spots. Some crews began working Wednesday to pre-treat roads and bridges with salt.

Michigan transportation officials are urging caution amid wintry weather that’s affecting travel across portions of the state. The National Weather Service has issued winter storm and weather warnings for nearly two dozen Michigan counties along the state’s western side.
