FREEZING FOG AND CHANCE OF SNOW: We will see a little bit of everything in the Metro area later today. There are patches of freezing fog out there this morning. By mid morning, sleet, snow and freezing rain could move into the Central portion of the state. The evening rush hour doesn't look good. Lots of slick spots and snow will make for slow going. Chuck Lofton says 1-3 inches of snow in the Metro with freezing rain and sleet is also possible. Tune in to Sunrise for Chuck's full forecast.

SCHOOLS USING TODAY AS A MAKE-UP DAY: It's Presidents' Day today, and that originally meant a day off from school for many students. But thanks to a brutal winter season some districts are using Presidents' Day as a make-up day. Beech Grove, Avon, Speedway and Warren are some of the big districts in class today. But IPS, Carmel and Greenwood and others will keep their Presidents' Day off. We have a full list on WTHR.com.

POST OFFICE CLOSED: Just a reminder, the post office will be close today because of Presidents' Day. There will be no mail delivery, and all retail stores inside post offices will be closed.

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BAN VOTE: Today at the statehouse the Senate is expected to take a final vote on a proposed state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage. Last week the Senate advanced a House version of the measure without a sentence that focused on banning civil unions. The change in language means even if the ban clears the Senate today, the amendment process must start over. It can't appear before voters until at least 2016.

OLYMPIC UPDATE: Tonight Bob Costas' Olympic quarantine comes to an end. NBC confirms that Costas will be back in the chair for tonight's primetime broadcast after a six-day absence because of an eye infection. For a recap of Team USA's performances over the weekend, tune in to Sunrise at 6 AM. Anne Marie Tiernon will have live reports from Russia.
