Friday, December 13, 2013 - 3:55 pm

Northeast Indiana could get hit with up to eight inches of snow by Saturday night from a winter storm that's approaching the state.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning from 7 p.m. Friday night through 7 p.m. Saturday night for much of northern Indiana and parts of central Indiana.

The weather service predicts snow will begin falling Friday night, with between five and eight inches of snow expected over an area north of Indianapolis through much of northern Indiana. The heaviest snowfall is expected near or south of U.S. 6.

Three to five inches of snow are expected south of that area.

The winter storm warning area runs from near or just north of Interstate 70 and extends north to all but Indiana's northern-most counties.

Counties under the warning include Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Kosciusko, Noble, Wells and Whitley. According to the National Weather Service, roads are likely to become snow-covered and hazardous Friday night.
