The New Year will begin with travel trouble. Freezing rain will begin in central Indiana after the ball drops New Years Eve and before you wake up from your champagne hangover Friday.
A quarter of an inch of ice may accumulate on some surfaces, which can be enough to cause some problems with power lines and trees.
The Weather Service has a Winter Weather Advisory in place from 3-11am Friday because of this threat.
