By 4 a.m. Bloomington reported 4 inches of snow while Putnamville had 3 ½ inches of snow. According to Indiana State Police, several slide-offs were reported from 5 a.m. on as INDOT and DPW crews worked to clear the treacherous roadways.

By 9 a.m. several counties were under travel watches and advisories. Those conditions have since improved, but advisories were still in place in some counties early Sunday evening.

At 11 a.m. ISP troopers responded to a jack-knifed semi in Boone County, which caused the northbound lanes of I-65 at State Road 32 to close for a few hours.

In Henry County multiple semi trucks were involved in a crash just before 1 p.m. ISP Pendleton dispatchers say an eight mile stretch on I-70 at the 118 mile marker was closed because of the crash. No serious injuries were reported.

Snow fall in the metro came to an end around 2 p.m. Indianapolis saw about 5.3 inches of snow.
