Closed Due to Cold

No new snow is in the forecast, but the government in Indianapolis will shut down on Tuesday due to the dangerously cold temperatures.

Mayor Greg Ballard says the city-county government will be closed since wind chill values are expected to be around -30 all day on Tuesday.

Only essential personnel will report to work.

Ballard also says government offices will open two hours later than normal on Wednesday.

The forecast high on Wednesday is for the upper teens, with less wind.

Ballard says the current travel watch for Marion County is being kept in place as a way of encouraging people to stay out of the extreme cold if possible.

The city-county government had already suspended trash pickup through Wednesday due to the predicted cold weather.
