This system will be more impactful for areas in southern Indiana and Kentucky. That’s where we find a Winter Weather Advisory continues through early Thursday morning. In addition to the snowfall to our south, lake effect snow will also be impacting for northern Indiana, where Winter Weather Advisories have also been issued.
