What everyone hoped was an April Fool's joke by the National Weather Service realized this morning that weather is no joking matter.

Data is also suggesting there could be a period of moderate to heavy snow between 7:00pm and 10:00pm this evening, especially in narrow bands from north of Terre Haute to Carmel, and another band from near Greenfield to Richmond.

The initial round of snow is expected to bring 1 to 3 inches of snow to the metro area. While more snow will accumulate on grass, trees, cars, and other unpaved surfaces, some roads can become slick and develop some slushy accumulation as well through mid-morning.

By mid to late afternoon, temps run into the low to mid 40s, so what snow we see, starts to melt quickly.
