Weather leaves mess behind for Hoosiers

Those conditions were a setup for freezing rain and sleet in some areas, with snow falling elsewhere.

The wintry mix battleground was expected to be along the Interstate 70 corridor, with more snow falling north of that area and less icy conditions south of that area.

General snowfall amounts of 2 to 5 inches were expected in the northern part of central Indiana, including Lafayette, Kokomo and Muncie.

Along I-70, about 1-3 inches of snow and ice accumulation were expected.

In the Bloomington and Columbus regions, a wintry mix will fall before warmer temps and rain take over.

The cutoff area between snow and ice and ice and rain depended on the track of the storm system and the temperature above ground and at the surface.

Warmer temperatures will take hold for the entire region on Tuesday, with temperatures going above freezing and highs staying above freezing into the weekend.
