A new winter storm dropped up to eight inches of fresh snow on parts of Indiana buried only days ago by a blizzard with up to a foot of snow.

The National Weather Service says eight inches of new snow fell overnight on Vincennes, while surrounding areas of southwestern Indiana and parts of southern Indiana received between 6 and 8 inches of fresh snow.

Between four and five inches of snowfall was reported across a wide swath of central, southern, eastern and northeastern Indiana.

Five inches fell in Indianapolis, while the suburb of Fishers just north of Indianapolis got seven inches and Bloomington received about four inches.

Snowfall amounts were lighter in northwestern Indiana, where some areas reported between one and two inches of snow.
