The huge winter storm system that dumped as much as a foot of snow on parts of Indiana is moving eastward and out of the region.

The heaviest snowfall has been recorded in central and western Indiana, but there have been significant accumulations in counties closer to the Ohio River and in far western Kentucky.

Much of Indiana was under a blizzard warning today as the blowing, drifting snow came at a pace of three inches per hour in some places. The winter weather snarled traffic and left hundreds of travelers stranded at the Indianapolis International Airport.

The temperature will drop through Wednesday, which means the rain would transition to snowfall as the day goes on.

Louisville may get about an inch of precipitation through Wednesday, Reaugh said. As much as two inches are possible further north. That, of course, could change as Wednesday gets nearer.
