This includes the following counties: Bartholomew, Brown, Clay, Daviess, Decatur, Greene, Hancock, Hendricks, Henry, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Knox, Lawrence, Marion, Martin, Monroe, Morgan, Owen, Putnam, Randolph, Rush, Shelby, Sullivan, Vigo

FOX_FuturecastCentral Indiana will start to see a mix of sleet and snow on Thursday evening as our first wave of moisture passes through the state.  This is going to cause issues on the roads because this sleet could easily be heavy across the city.

But after midnight, mixed precipitation will start shifting further South and Southeast before the entire state is seeing snowfall.  1-2″ of snow could easily be on the ground by the time we head to work and school Friday morning.  Travel will be impacted by this system so plan accordingly.
