EARLY EVENING UPDATE
Critical air temperature dipped to or below freezing just before 5 p.m. Wednesday as a plume of moisture raced into central Indiana. Temperatures are now supporting freezing rain and sleet, creating a light icing for the evening commute.
Area road temperatures are still above freezing, but light ice accumulation is occurring along and north of the I-70 corridor.
Slight adjustments have been made to the ice accumulation forecast as temperatures lowered to support freezing rain. Freezing rain began at 4:45 p.m. By 6 p.m., sleet and snow were sticking in Howard County, near and in Kokomo.
There will be multiple more rounds of precipitation throughout night. The early evening rain/sleet and snow is the most intense and will start easing before 8/9 p.m.
Through the night, occasional light freezing rain and sleet along with some snow will fall, but again, at a much lighter rate. Light icing and snow/sleet accumulation will keep conditions hazardous through early Thursday morning. The Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 10 a.m. Thursday.
