The weather pattern remains active through Wednesday. The weather concern for Wednesday will go back to winter and more snow. This next round of snow will mainly impact the southern half of the state during the day Wednesday. An early estimate for snowfall potential is 1-2 inches along I-70 and 2-4 inches south. We also think there will be an area of 4″+ near Bedford and Seymour. As with any winter system, there will be changes to the timing and the totals. Stay tuned for updates.
