Despite numerous requests for it to leave, winter is still hanging around Indiana, and it's even trying to ruin your weekend fun.

The Indiana Department of Homeland Security is encouraging people traveling in the Hoosier state this weekend to pay attention to the weather. This weekend's winter storm might cause hazardous road conditions, especially on Sunday and Monday morning.

Snow will start falling Saturday night and continue accumulating through Sunday night, with snowfall heavier in southern areas, the National Weather Service predicts. Total amount of snowfall is expected to be between 2 and 8 inches from Saturday night through Sunday.

As of 7:30 p.m. Friday, DHS listed Elkhart County under a travel advisory, meaning some travel could be restricted and drivers should be cautious.

Travelers can visit the Indiana Department of Transportation website or call 800-261-ROAD to find out road conditions.
