A winter storm that could bring heavy ice accumulations to central Indiana is likely to cause some power outages, Indianapolis Power & Light predicts. The storm, predicted to hit the area Monday evening and last through Wednesday afternoon, is expected to dump heavy snow on areas north of the city and several inches of icy rain on the Indianapolis area. Expected wind gusts up to 35 mph and ice accumulations could down power lines.
