AREA WIDE -- A complex winter storm is threatening to push through our area Friday night into the weekend.

The National Weather Service issued a SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT for the entire listening area due to the potential for difficult travel Friday night into Saturday.  Snow showers could linger into early Sunday morning in some areas.

Right now, the heaviest of the snow is expected to fall along and north of I 64, which puts much of Dubois County in the bulls-eye. However, some weather models are suggesting the area could see a mix of snow and rain.

2-4 inches of snow is possible for our area, however, keep a few things in mind.  First, the weather models are not in agreement, so pinning down exactly what precipitation will fall and where has been tricky.  Second, the storm is still more than 24 hours away, so the forecast could change (and likely will) before the storm arrives.

Stay with the WITZ Weather Team throughout the weekend for the very latest watches, warnings and advisories.  We'll also have road conditions and any business closings or event cancellations (if there are any).

 A low pressure system passing through the region this weekend may bring a mix of rain and snow to parts of the Ohio Valley Friday night through Sunday.

Although confidence is low in the exact track and fine details of this weather system, accumulating snow looks possible, especially for areas along and north of I-64.

Anyone traveling this weekend should be prepared for slick roadways and potential impacts to travel.

Stay up to date of the latest forecasts as details are likely to change leading up to the event.
