Snow, Strong Winds Begin Pounding Indiana

Last updated on Wednesday, December 26, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - More than a foot of snow is possible in parts of Indiana as a strong winter storm moves through the southern two-thirds of the state Wednesday.

A blizzard warning remains in effect for most of the area, with some northern parts of the area under a winter storm warning.

Accumulations of up to a foot of snow are expected in areas south of Indianapolis, with the metro area expected to get 6 to 9 inches of snow, according to the National Weather Association.

Wind-whipped snow began moving into central Indiana during the early-morning hours, with the heaviest snow expected to fall after 8 a.m. in the Indianapolis area.

Road conditions are quickly expected to become treacherous, and some counties had already imposed travel restrictions.

The storm system is expected to begin moving out of the area during the late afternoon, with snow tapering off generally from west to east.
