[IDHS] Be Aware of Developing Weather Conditions Tuesday Evening

Entry Description
BE AWARE OF DEVELOPING WEATHER CONDITIONS TUESDAY EVENING

Indiana is expected to get another round of heavy snow and ice that could make travel hazardous throughout the state. The National Weather Service predicts 5 to 10 inches of snow could fall in portions of central and northern Indiana, and there is a possibility for accumulations of ice and snow for portions of southern Indiana.

The timing of this storm could impact Hoosiers traveling home from work or to evening activities, and could affect travel on Wednesday. State agencies, including Indiana State Police and the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, are urging drivers to remain patient and not become overconfident behind the wheel.

Monitor local media throughout the day to keep up to date on the latest weather forecast. Local media will also provide reports on school and business closures. Many media outlets and the National Weather Service have notification systems that work with smart phones.

Local Emergency Management Agencies provide updates on county travel status. Counties may be placed under travel advisories, alerts, or warnings. The county travel status map can be found at http://www.in.gov/dhs/traveladvisory.

In severe winter weather situations, law enforcement may be busy responding to emergency calls for service. DO NOT call local law enforcement or 911 for road information. Visit http://indot.carsprogram.org or call 800-261-ROAD for road information.
