Last Updated: 284 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - Though a winter weather advisory remains in place for parts of central Indiana, much of the area appears to have avoided most of the wintry mix that had been expected for communities north of Indianapolis.
Freezing rain was reported to the north of Indianapolis, with more than 1,400 customers without power in Delaware County as of 2:30 p.m.
In Muncie, Eaton Elementary dismissed at 12:30 p.m. after the school lost power. All other Delaware Community Schools were still in session.
In Boone County, a large tree across the street from Central Elementary School was brought down by heavy ice, taking out several power lines. The school remained open and no injuries were reported.
The National Weather Service expanded and extended a winter weather advisory that had been in place north of Indianapolis. It now includes Hamilton and Boone counties, in addition to other areas north of Indianapolis and runs through 1 p.m.
Temperatures will continue to warm on Tuesday, keeping most of the precipitation as rain before cooler air comes in behind the storm system.
Rain is expected for much of the day in central Indiana on Tuesday, but it will change to snow Tuesday night.
Indy Snow Force is deploying 90 drivers at 11 p.m. Tuesday ahead of the snow.
Snow showers will stay in the forecast through Thursday, with little to no accumulation expected.
