A winter weather advisory will go into effect at 7 p.m. Friday for most of central and southern Indiana. It is set to expire at noon Saturday.

Snow could fall heavily at times, but overall snow totals will be held down some from what they might have been because the storm system will be moving so quickly, StormTeam 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said.

"The snow will develop probably any time after 7, 8 o'clock, mixing at first in the southern portions of the state," Klaassen said. "Snow comes down pretty heavily at times for everybody Saturday morning. It could end as a little bit of freezing drizzle."

Total storm accumulation of 2 to 5 inches is expected in much of the area, generally along and north of a line from Vincennes to Connersville.

South of that area, 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected, with additional accumulation of a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet or plain rain.

The bulk of the accumulating snow will happen during the early-morning hours Saturday, with the snow tapering off by about 7 a.m. for most of the area.

Snow showers or freezing drizzle is expected to linger through the day Saturday after the heaviest snow moves away.

Temperatures are expected to stay below normal with highs in the mid-30s or lower over the next seven days.
