INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 9, 2016)-- Good Tuesday afternoon. It's been a snowy day across the area with many areas seeing a dusting if not a little more on the ground. Temperatures and road surfaces have cooled and therefore roads have been slick in spots today. We'll continue with snow showers in the forecast tonight through Wednesday morning with little accumulation expected. Most areas will see less than 0.5 inches of snowfall.
