INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana Department of Transportation is preparing
for freezing rain, sleet, ice and snow to hit parts of the state Thursday
night and Friday.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of
southern and central Indiana. The weather service says a wintry storm is
expected to bring a mix of accumulating sleet and snow.
INDOT says the weather could lead to difficult driving conditions. The
department plans to use salt trucks to treat the roads just before
pavement temperatures drop and the wintry mix begins to accumulate.
INDOT officials are advising motorists to avoid non-essential travel. They
say ice will probably be the greatest threat to safety, saying even
four-wheel-drive vehicles have little advantage on icy pavements
