Hazardous travel conditions coming
Winter storm Wednesday and Thursday

(February 23, 2016) – Hazardous travel conditions are expected with the winter storm starting early Wednesday morning and continuing into Thursday. Rain will lift northward into the area starting late tonight, and gradually transition to snow from west to east through the day Wednesday.

Travel conditions will deteriorate during the day with low visibility, icy snow covered roads, and blowing snow. Conditions will be poor through the day Thursday as well, with northwest winds gusting to 30-45 mph at times. This will cause blowing and drifting snow.

Areas south of US-24 and east of I 69 will be mostly rain Wednesday, transitioning to snow later Wednesday night.

Expect 6-8 inches of snow by Thursday evening in the northwest, 4-6 inches central, and 1-3″ in the southeast.
