Storm totals along and north of the Interstate 70 corridor are expected to be in the 3- to 6-inch range, with higher amounts possible north of the Indianapolis metro area.

To the south of a line from Vincennes to Connersville, snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches is expected, but there will also be a wintry mix and, perhaps, some rain in those areas.

"Snow will move Friday evening and will stick around, maybe in a couple of waves, through much of the day on Saturday," StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said.

The forecast is very trick for Bloomington and Columbus. Snow accumulation there will depend a lot on how much warmer air mixes in. About 2 to 4 inches of snow are currently expected in that area.

Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing in southern Indiana during the day on Saturday, but are expected to remain at or below freezing in most of central and all of northern Indiana.

The storm system will move quickly out of the area on Saturday, bringing the accumulating snow to an end and bringing more cold air into Indiana.

Temperatures are expected to stay below normal over the next seven days.
