5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS MORNING
WINTER STORM WARNING:
A winter storm warning goes in effect for central Indiana from 1pm today through 1pm tomorrow. Snowfall potential is 6-10 inches where it stays all snow. Right now we think that will be around Indianapolis and areas to the north. There will be some sleet and ice mixing with the snow from 1-70 south and this will cut down on snow totals. For areas along and just south of I-70, we have 4-7 inches of snow in the forecast. Tune to Eyewitness News Sunrise now for the latest on the timeline for snow from Chuck Lofton and Nicole Misencik. And download the WTHR Weather App for the latest all day long.
SCHOOL MAKE-UP DAYS:
As we anticipate another significant snow, some schools are coming up with their make-up day plans. Brown County schools have already moved their graduation date. Bartholomew county schools are utilizing one of two weeks designated for Spring Break. Many schools are waiting on the state to decide whether to waive the requirement to make-up the days. Sunrise Reporter Kris Kirschner will have a live report at 6:50 about the tough decisions facing schools and parents.
DEADLY SHOOTING IN FRANKLIN:
Authorities in Franklin are investigating an apparent murder-suicide that left two people dead and three others hurt. Police found four people shot at a home along Bridlewood Drive in Franklin. One of them, a 19-year-old woman, died. Johnson County Sheriff's deputies also found a man, apparently killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, near a car along Paul Hand Boulevard outside of Whiteland. Sunrise Reporter Carrie Cline is following this story. She will have a live report on Sunrise at 6:30am.
