A winter weather advisory is in effect from 7am to 8pm Friday for about the southern third of Indiana. The light snow will start to fall Friday morning, but it should be after the drive to work and school. The steadiest snow will fall from late morning through Friday evening, so the drive home could be a bit tricky.
Where the advisory is in effect, we are expecting up to 4 inches of snow. This includes: Bloomington, Columbus, Greensburg, Bedford and Seymour. Around Indianapolis, an inch or 2 is expected. The lightest totals will be north of Indianapolis, with a dusting up to an inch of snow in the forecast for Friday.
The snow will end just in time for your Valentine's Day plans Friday night. There might still be a few slick roads, especially south.
We are also tracking temperature changes. It won't be as mild as it was on Thursday. Highs for Friday and the weekend are expected in the 20s to near 30 degrees. Milder air arrives for most of next week, as we have 40s in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday. Highs will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s by Wednesday and Thursday. We are forecasting rain on Monday and again on Thursday. With the snow still on the ground and milder air moving our way, fog will be an issue next week too.
The following counties are included in the weather advisory:
