INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Rain, sleet and snow were falling Wednesday evening in central Indiana.

Wednesday Night:

A potent storm system is moving through central Indiana. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until Thursday afternoon for areas north and along I-70. A mix of snow and sleet will fall near and along I-70, with snow north of I-70 and rain in the southern part of the state. At times during the evening, the rain-snow line may drift farther north into parts of Marion County.

Temperatures will fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s.


Precipitation will change over to all snow by early Thursday morning. Areas south of Indy will pick up less than an inch; areas along I-70 will see from 1-3 inches of snow and sleet, while areas north of Indy will pick up from 3-5 inches of snow. The accumulating snow will come to an end by the early afternoon, but a few flurries will still be possible later in the day.

Winds will be pretty breezy throughout the afternoon, from 10-20 mph. Temperatures will start around 30 early in the morning then fall into the middle 20s by the late afternoon.

Thursday Night:

Skies will begin to clear late and with light winds, snow cover and clearing skies. Temperatures will fall into the single digits by early Friday morning.


A cold blast of air will move into the state. Windchill values early Friday morning will be near or below zero at times. Be sure to bundle up! Look for lots of sunshine throughout Friday. Highs on Friday will climb into the upper teens and near 20 for the afternoon.

8-Day Forecast:

Sunshine will continue Saturday with highs slowly climbing back to normal. Temperatures will warm back into the 40s and even close to 50 on Monday. Another storm system will head this way but, since temperatures will be so warm, it looks like we’ll see rain Monday. Colder air will move back in Tuesday and bring us a chance for a rain-snow mix Tuesday.


Survey: Almost 40% of beer-drinking Americans won’t buy Corona now

(WISH) — In addition to wreaking havoc on the stock market, coronavirus appears to be causing problems in the beer industry.

According to 5W Public Relations, 38% of beer drinkers surveyed said they would not buy Corona now.

5W Public Relations is an independently-owned PR agency.

The company spoke to 737 beer drinkers in a phone survey. Of the people surveyed, 4% of regular Corona drinkers said they would no longer drink the beer and 14% said they wouldn’t order it in public anymore.

“There is no question that Corona beer is suffering because of the coronavirus. Could one imagine walking into a bar and saying “Hey, can I have a Corona?” or “Pass me a Corona,” said Ronn Torossian, Founder and CEO of 5WPR. “While the brand has claimed that consumers understand there’s no linkage between the virus and the beer company, this is a disaster for the Corona brand. After all, what brand wants to be linked to a virus which is killing people worldwide?”
