Winter storm warning canceled

Snow piled up as storm moved through

INDIANAPOLIS - A winter storm punched central Indiana with two rounds of snow late Thursday night and early Friday morning.

A winter storm warning was in place for most of central and southern Indiana, with snowfall totals of up to 10 inches by the time the storm moved through late Friday.

The National Weather Service canceled the winter storm warning just after 9 p.m. on Friday.

"The snow has diminished and or ended across central Indiana this evening which will allow the winter storm warning to be canceled. Some streets may still be slick and snow-covered, especially in rural areas. Motorists should still be careful overnight," NWS said.

In areas north of the Indianapolis metro area, such as Lafayette and Kokomo, little to no snow was expected, but the story was different along and south of the Interstate 70 corridor.

Snow fell through the night and into the early-morning hours in central and southern Indiana, part of a much larger storm affecting areas from the northeast to Texas.

StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said as of 7 p.m., a little more than 4 inches of snow had already fallen in Indianapolis. Parts of southern Indiana had 8 to 10 inches of snow near Columbus, Bloomington and Vincennes. Areas north of I-70 had 2 to 4 inches of snow.

There is another chance for accumulating snow over the weekend.

"Another system heads our way for Sunday with a snow/sleet/rain mix followed by another blast of Arctic air next week where we will drop into the single digits," Klaassen said.

High temperatures early next week are expected to stay in the teens.
