Here's the latest forecast from WTHR (Channel 13).‪Initial snow zones for Saturday storm with disclaimer 1) it’s likely to change, 2) less mixing = more snow along I-70, 3) southern zones could be significantly higher if backside/higher snow ratio develops as some models suggest, 4) a band of sleet/freezing rain is possible south of the heaviest snow and could accumulate to .25”-.50” but narrowing down this area is impossible at this time.

Precipitation begins ramps up between 2 AM - 8 AM and will be steady most of Saturday.

In addition wind will ramp up to 20-30+ mph to lower visibility and cause drifting. Wind eases by Sunday evening.

Please note the road conditions likely deteriorate rapidly Saturday evening as temperatures drop quickly. Expect icy/hazardous travel area wide, regardless of how much snow/ice you get, as salt becomes inefficient in single digits temperatures. We’ll update between now and first flakes predawn Saturday
