Monroe County was placed under a travel advisory Friday due to poor road conditions and low visibility from blowing snow until further notice, according to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security. It is the second travel advisory in a week. 

This means routine travel and activities may be restricted in certain areas due to hazardous conditions caused by the weather, and local residents are advised to use caution or avoid the areas entirely. 

On Friday, Bloomington could receive winds from 15 to 25 miles per hour according to the National Weather Service. The NWS also issued a winter weather advisory in effect until 1 p.m. and a wind chill advisory in effect from 7 p.m. Friday until 10 a.m. Saturday. 

While snow is expected to end, blowing snow is expected to continue into the afternoon according to the NWS. Wind chills during the wind chill advisory are expected to get as low as 20 degrees below zero. 

Monroe County residents can monitor the forecast through local weather channels and NWS live trackers.
