   LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Snow is falling over a large portion of Kentucky and threatens to make the morning commute slow and messy.
 
   Kentucky Department of Transportation officials said salt trucks were out treating roadways, but noted that arctic air and continuing snow on Tuesday could still make for slick conditions.
 
   Several school districts in the state canceled classes.
 
   The forecast calls for up to 5 inches of snow in parts of northern Kentucky, and lows of around zero to 5 degrees.
 
   Central Kentucky is expecting between 1-4 inches of snow with lows around 10.
 
   Some parts of western Kentucky may see an inch or two of snow with scattered flurries elsewhere and single-digit temperatures.
 
   South-central Kentucky regions should see around an inch of snow with temperatures falling into the lower teens Tuesday night.

   As for Indiana, travel was slow as strong winds blew around fresh snow accumulations.
 
   Dozens of school districts across southern Indiana announced closures on Tuesday, while many others in central and northern counties delayed their openings.
 
   The National Weather Service was only expecting 2 to 3 inches of snow in most parts of central and southern Indiana, but winds gusting to 30 mph were causing more troubles.
