ADAMS COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Just a bit south in Adams County, things were bad enough for officials to declare a Level 2 or "Code Yellow" Snow Emergency.

Heavy snow on the roads this morning combined with more snow blowing and drifting made driving conditions difficult.

In Adams County, a "Code Yellow" asks motorists to use extreme caution because roads are covered in snow or ice.

The combination of plow drivers and sunshine this afternoon helped to improve things a bit.

Adams County Sheriff Charles E. Padgett said, “I think they're becoming cleared up pretty much all over, we haven't had any major problems, and I don't think we're having any problems now. Its just the county guys and the plows being able to get all the county roads cleared off.”

Officials hope to be able to change the warning tonight from code yellow to green.
