Precipitation will transition from rain to snow across southwest Indiana and much of western Kentucky Sunday morning. The snow will come to an end west to east late Sunday evening.
Total snowfall amounts will range from 4 to 8 inches across the warned area.
Travel conditions are expected to deteriorate quickly Sunday morning and worsen through the day, accompanied by gusty northwest winds bringing extremely cold air into the region Sunday through Tuesday.
Temperatures will fall below zero over much of the area late Sunday night and remain below zero through the day Monday and into Tuesday morning. Wind chill readings will range from 10 below to 30 below zero, with slick road conditions likely continuing through the first half of the week.
Forecasters say this blast of winter weather will carry temperatures and conditions not seen in our area in nearly two decades.
A warming center will open at the Community Center at H.H. Lovett Park in Benton beginning Sunday morning.
