Winter Storm Warning in effect through Monday

Posted: Updated:

A Winter Storm WARNING is now in effect through Monday morning.

The NWS has upgraded our winter storm watch to a winter storm WARNING...this means snow and ice are likely within the next 24 hours.  The event will start with freezing rain after midnight and continuing into Sunday morning. The freezing rain will accumulate to 1/4 to 1/2" in some spots before changing over to snow on Sunday evening into Monday morning.  1-3" of snow will be possible with locally higher amounts. Travel will be extremely hazardous on Sunday if the storm stays on its current track.

Transportation crews in Kentucky says trucks are loaded with salt and are ready at a moments notice. In Indiana, INDOT says they have been pretreating roads, trying their best to reduce the amount of ice that will set in once the storm starts.

Stay with 14 News for the latest on the upcoming winter weather.
