Dry but bitter to start this Thursday morning, as temperatures have settled into the lower teens and single digits at this hour. Although most roads are dry, slick spots remain on side streets, neighborhoods and various county roads. Expect limited sunshine all day and highs climbing into the upper 20's. Overall, a fairly decent day ahead!

By this evening, clouds will begin to increase and winds will turn steady from the northeast, as we remain dry. The southern storm will begin its approach across the southern Ohio Valley overnight and snow will begin to fall from extreme southern Indiana and through most of Kentucky. By the afternoon, snow will begin to creep northeast toward Cincinnati and southeastern Indiana. Travel to Cincinnati or Louisville could be slick the farther south you go on I-65 and I-74! Models continue to disagree on totals along the Ohio River ranging from 4 inches to as much as 9 inches!

Locally, for Indianapolis and surrounding counties...we should expect flurries, clouds and stronger wind gusts! Winds will be gusting to 35mph but roads should be fine as snow stays well south!
