(UNDATED) - The National Weather Service has issued a weather statement for Southern Indiana including Lawrence, Orange and Dubois counties and others.

The activity could develop into the area before daybreak. It is expected to increase Friday morning, and last through the afternoon and then taper off.

Freezing rain appears likely Friday across portions of southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and southwest Indiana.

A cold front will push through the region late this afternoon and evening and will allow a shallow cold air-mass to drop into southern Indiana and far northern Kentucky. With warmer temperatures aloft, precipitation tonight across southern Indiana and far northern Kentucky will fall in the form of light freezing rain or freezing drizzle.

It is expected to increase Friday morning, and last through the afternoon and then taper off.

Those with travel plan for late tonight or early Friday morning should keep abreast of the latest forecasts and allow extra time to reach your destination.

There may be some impacts to travel, especially on bridges, overpasses, and secondary roads. Sidewalks and parking lots may become quite slick as well. Elevated surfaces will ice. Expect a glaze on automobiles. Impacts to power should be minimal.

Meanwhile this morning, southwest winds will gust from 25 to 35 mph at times. This will cause loose objects to blow around. Travel may be difficult for some high profile vehicles. A cold front will move through this morning and early afternoon from north to south across the area. Winds will shift to the northwest and decrease behind the front.
