INDIANAPOLIS - The first snow of 2014 was in no wait whatsoever to get to Indiana, with several inches expected to fall by the time the snow system passes.
StormTeam 6 meteorologist Ashley Brown said some parts of the state could see nearly half a foot of snow. A frontal system will move through our area Wednesday night, bringing generally 2 to 5 inches of snow throughout the area. Higher totals are expected for the northern third of the state.
Winter weather advisories were issued across the state Wednesday, with most advisories expiring sometime Thursday night. Find your county's advisory status here.
The snow will blow and drift throughout the day Thursday as temperatures slowly fall through the 20s and into the teens. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon were in the mid- to low-30s, by Thursday morning they're set to be in the mid- to low-20s, and by early Friday temps will be in the single digits with below-zero wind chills.
For those returning to work Thursday morning, prepare for a slow commute and slick roads. The Indianapolis Department of Public Works said the Indy Snow Force was out all day Wednesday preparing for the snowfall, but steadily dropping temperatures combined with the snow could still make for more dangerous driving conditions.
