Last Updated: 343 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - A fast-moving storm system dumped up to 6 inches of fresh snow across parts of central Indiana, with some higher amounts reported south of Indianapolis.
Snow fell heavily at times late Friday night and early Saturday morning.
The National Weather Service received snowfall total reports ranging from just about an inch to 6 inches of new snow.
Carmel and Fishers received nearly 5 inches of snow. Accumulations went a bit higher than originally expected in some areas. A narrow snow band set up a little west and north of downtown Indianapolis, elevating snow totals in those areas.
The 6-inch total was reported in Anderson, with accumulation of around 5 inches reported in Speedway and in the Zionsville area.
NWS said 7.5 inches of new snow fell in Williams, in Lawrence County.
A cold and snowy weather pattern is expected to continue for the next few days across Indiana.
Though most of the snow will move out Saturday morning, chilly temperatures will remain in place.
Another chance of snow returns to the forecast for Monday and Monday night, and that could linger into New Year's Day.
The snow that is on the ground will hang around for a while. High temperatures are not expected to go above freezing for the next seven days.
