Get ready for winter – it’s coming two weeks early this year.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Bloomington and the rest of the WFHB listening area, starting at ten o’clock tonight and running through midnight tomorrow night.
A strong low pressure front is pushing through the area, bringing with it the potential for heavy snow.
Forecasters are predicting six to ten inches, with higher totals in isolated areas.
Drivers south of Bloomington may have to cope with ice-covered pavement when they drive in to work tomorrow morning.
The National Weather Service adds that strong winds may accompany the snow, making driving hazardous and maybe impossible.
Right now schools are expected to open on time tomorrow morning. If the traffic light on the Monroe County Community Schools Corporation website turns yellow, it means that school openings will be delayed. A red light means classes have been cancelled.
Keep listening to WFHB throughout the night and into the weekend for updates on the weather situation.
