(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - The tri-state could see its first measurable snow of the winter Thursday night.
The National Weather Service has Franklin and Butler counties under a Winter Weather Advisory from 7:00 p.m. Thursday until 10:00 p.m. Friday.
Snow accumulation in those counties could be up to two inches. Smaller amounts could be seen in counties south of Franklin and Butler.
Strong winds and much colder temperatures are also expected with the storm. Southwest winds will blow 25 to 30 MPH with gusts up to 55 MPH. Temperatures will fall quickly from the 40s into the 20s Thursday night leading to a high temperature in the low 30s Friday.
The same storm system that will enter our area Thursday evening has already brought high winds, heavy snow, severe thunderstorms, and fierce winds to the center of the country. It is expected to dump more than a foot of snow from the central Plains on into the Upper Midwest.
