As Winter Storm Miles continues through the Midwest, Indianapolis roads will likely be in hazardous condition. Central Indiana is expected to get some snow or wintry mix late Thursday, as precipitation continues and temperatures drop.
Andrew White, spokesperson for the National Weather Service in Indianapolis, said as temperatures drop below freezing overnight Thursday, pooled rainwater will likely freeze.
“Whatever’s on the ground is going to freeze, which is going to make for a difficult commute tomorrow,” he said.
“Very slick” roads will create hazardous road conditions for drivers late Thursday and Friday morning, White said.
The roads will likely contain a mix of ice chunks, as well as black ice, and drivers should watch out for slick side streets especially.
However, the “main issues are going to be with tomorrow morning,” White said, as temperatures warm up throughout Friday.
A flood warning is still in effect until 10 a.m. Friday. NWS also issued a winter weather advisory, which will be in effect until midnight Thursday.
