NORTHEAST INDIANA â€” A winter weather system IS expected to make its way to Indiana on Thursday evening, state officials are warning Hoosiers to prepare in advance. Preparations include charging cell phones and other items in case power is interrupted, evaluating whether driving is necessary, taking your time if you decide to drive, and gathering items for your car and home in case they are needed.
The National Weather Service is predicting sleet and significant snowfall beginning Thursday evening. These conditions, in addition to low temperatures, may cause roads to be extremely icy and travel conditions dangerous. Anyone in the path of the storm is strongly encouraged to make alternate plans in case weather conditions disrupt daily routines.
DO NOT call city, county, or state police to check on road conditions â€“ police agencies across the state want to keep phone lines open for emergency phone calls.
