Anna Hurst,10,Longfellow Clouds approaching Indiana from the west today signaled a weather system that will bring some snow to the state, the National Weather Service said. Snow forecast late tonight and Friday will be more likely in the south where some accumulation is expected Friday. Precipitation may begin in southern Indiana this evening as light rain or sprinkles. But after midnight snow is likely. Light snow is expected in central Indiana after midnight, while there is just a chance for light snow in the north. The low pressure system causing the snow will take a southerly track from Texas through Mississippi and into the Carolines. That is why the snow over Indiana is more likely near the Ohio River than in the northern part of the state. Saturday through Monday: Cold Saturday and Sunday. Highs In the 20s north and 30s south.

On 1c* wftt a motorist stop quicker when it's 32 than at zero degrees? Twice the breaking distance is needed at 32 than at zero degrees Faces Jackson feeling better INDIANAPOLIS (AP) —The illness that forced Michael Jackson to cancel a performance in St. Louis is not expected to afl'ect his weekend concerts here, spokesmen said. "It's just laryngitis," Jackson's press agent, Sherrie Levy, said Wednesday. "All he needs is time to recover. I'm confident he'll be in great shape . for the shows in Indianapolis." Jackson "We expect that the Friday night show will go as planned," said publicist Maureen O'Connor. "He is under a doctor's care, but he is feeling better. They are proceeding to put up the stage and take care of other tour matters." Officials at Market Square Arena, where Jackson is scheduled to perform Friday and Saturday as part of a 13-city tour, said the shows are mostly sold out. Jackson was treated by doctors at St. John's Mercy Medical Center in suburban St. Louis after illness forced him to postpone a concert last Saturday night. Jackson performed Sunday night as scheduled before about 19,000 people despite suffering from a cold. But it progressed Monday to laryngitis and he had to cancel that night's makeup concert, St. Louis Arena manager Roger Dixon said. Tonight Show Band record turning out to be a big hit LOS ANGELES (AP) - Trumpet-playing bandleader Doc Severinsen says that having his television orchestra do albums seemed like a crazy idea, but it brought concert bookings and Grammy awards. "Maybe there's life for big-band records, after all," Severinsen said in a recent interview. Though his Tonight Show Band gets nationwide exposure on Johnny Carson's show, albeit for 30 seconds at a time, Severinsen said the'idea of an album didn't arise until 1986 when Lenny Sil verman of tiny Amherst Records proposed it. "I replied, 'You've got to be crazy; what to you want to do that for?'" Severinsen recalled. "It turned out so well that we immedidately went in and did 'Volume Two,'" followed by a sold-out concert tour, Severinsen said. The Tonight Show Band's "Volume One" made an impressive crossover jump to the pop charts and won a Grammy last year for best big-band album. "Volume Two" won a Grammy for Bill Holman's arrangement of the jazz classic, "Take the'A'Train." , A week of gum surgery leaves Cuomo with sore jaw ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Gov. Mario Cuomo said he's compressing about six to nine months worth of periodontal treatment into one week and that he's got the sore jaw to prove it. Cuomo, who began the gum surgery late last week, said he was back under the periodontist's knife on Wednesday. "They cut you and sew you," moaned Cuomo. "It's very messy." Nonetheless, the governor was able to maintain something of his sense of humor. "You bleed a lot, but we're used to that." Cuomo, who's negotiating with legislative leaders over a proposed $28.4 billion state budget, said he was having only local anesthesia during his surgery. "Four minutes of gas, the budget would be $39 billion," he said. Cuomo, who called the surgery "more preventive than anything else," said he was taking no drugs to ease the pain. U.S. composer hired to write Columbus opera NEW YORK (AP)-Philip Glass, an American composer who has seven operas scheduled to be performed around the world this year, has been commissioned to provide a work to mark the 500th anniversary of Columbus' voyage to America. The Metropolitan Opera commissioned the full-length opera to be performed in October 1992, Met General Glass Manager Bruce Crawford said Wednesday. Glass said "The Voyage" will be an allegorical opera in three acts, using historical and fictional material about the human need to discover and explore. Glass' first opera, "Einstein on the Beach," a collaboration with Robert Wilson, premiered in Avignon, France, in 1976. Later that year, it was presented in the Metropolitan Opera House, but by a visiting company. The Met has commissioned only three operas since it contracted for Samuel Barber's "Antony and Cleopatra' 1 for the 1966 opening of its new house in Lincoln Center.
