The Winter Storm Warning replaces the Winter Weather Advisory issued Thursday. A Winter Storm Warning means severe winter weather conditions are expected. Significant amounts of snow are expected, and Hoosiers are urged to travel only if necessary.

Snow is expected to arrive in the metro area after sunset between 7 p.m. to midnight. The snow will continue to fall Saturday, with accumulation totaling around 2 to 4 inches by sunrise.  Motorists are urged to use extreme caution when traveling on the roads early Saturday morning.

After sunrise Saturday, snow will continue to fall steadily in spots, with an additional 1 to 3 inches of snow accumulation possible.  Snow accumulation could total between 4 to 6 inches in the city.  Areas north of the city will see higher snowfall totals with 4 to 7 inches. Southern counties along US 50 will get a little wintry mix at times.
