(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Schools across southeastern Indiana are closing on what should have been a snow make-up day for many of them.
An overnight snow has caused many roads to be snow-covered this morning. That even includes highways like U.S. 50 and State Road 1. At Eagle Country 99.3, we’re hearing of slide-outs just about everywhere in southeastern Indiana, including the Interstate 275 ramp in Greendale, State Road 350 in Aurora, and S.R. 129 near Versailles.
INDOT says 29 trucks in the Aurora subdistrict were called out at 10:00 p.m. Sunday. Thirty more were sent out in the Madison subdistrict.
Temperatures should rise into the low 30s today, but another couple of inches of snow could accumulate Monday afternoon. Meteorologists say the afternoon community could end up being difficult.
The National Weather Service has a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 1:00 a.m. Tuesday.
We’ll plunge back into the deep freeze with wind chills of 10 to 15 below overnight. A Wind Chill Advisory will be in effect from 11:00 Monday night until Tuesday afternoon.
