Winter weather advisory in effect tonight

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a winter weather advisory for our area for tonight, warning of up to 3 inches of snow overnight.

Snow will increase this evening and spread south, with 2 to 3 inches of snow late tonight and into Tuesday morning. Gusty winds will produce blowing and drifting snow.

Wind chills are expected to drop to near zero Tuesday as temperatures drop into the teens and winds will gust 25 to 30 mph.

A winter weather advisory means that snow and blowing snow will primarily cause traffic problems. You should use caution while driving and be prepared for poor visibility.

The advisory is in effect from 10 p.m. until noon Tuesday.
