The week snow lovers have been waiting for has finally arrived. The stores looked like a combination of pandemic shut-down, day before Thanksgiving and chaos in general this weekend. Hopefully, you can work from home or take a few days off, so you don't have to get out. If you do, Sergeant Todd Ringle with the Indiana State Police shares safety tips on Twitter.

First, let's get an update on that #SNOWVID2021 forecast from the National Weather Service Paducah, KY.

An extended period of moderate to heavy snow rates of up to around an inch an hour, and sharply reduced visibility, will rapidly make road conditions treacherous . Most of the snow will fall in the latter half of the morning through the evening.

2/17 - 2/18 - There is the potential for significant wintry precipitation, but exact types and amounts are yet to be determined. If you have travel plans any time this week, stay tuned to forecast updates.
