Archive for February, 2010
I know, you’re sick of shoveling, sick of the snow, sick of the cold!
So far this winter we’ve received 33.0″ of snow. That’s 9.5″ above normal.
Keep in mind that during the month of February, we received the bulk of that total, picking up 17.5″ of snow. That makes February 2010 the 6th snowiest on record! The snowiest? 21.7″ back in 2003.
Top Six February Snow’s:
Slick spots on area roadways are possible this morning as freezing drizzle and light snow showers continue to lightly fall in Central Indiana. No accumulation is expected, however, sidewalks and untreated roadways could be icy this morning.
Highs today will reach the mid to upper 30s with cloudy skies. Patches of freezing drizzle and flurries are possible from time to time.
Tonight mostly cloudy skies will stick around with lows in the mid to upper 20s.
Monday looks dry with mostly cloudy skies and highs in the mid to upper 30s.
Then, it’s back to snow chances for Tuesday and Wednesday.
If you’re headed out this evening, be careful for slick spots on Central Indiana roadways. Pockets of freezing drizzle/ freezing fog/ and freezing rain are possible.
A quick disturbance is moving through overnight and we’ll see precip turn to flurries or light snow showers. A dusting to 1/2″ of snow is possible, but don’t expect any major accumulation with overnight lows in the mid 20s.
Sunday, cloudy skies stick around with the chance for a few flurries. Highs will reach the mid 30s.
Monday, back to some sunshine with highs nearly hitting 40 degrees.
Then, Tuesday, another chance for snow.
Snow totals from Friday night-Saturday morning in Central Indiana:
New Castle: 1.5″

Say it ain’t snow… sNOw way… how many more lame weather jokes can I come up with? Don’t get me started!
Highs today will reach the low to mid 30s with cloudy skies. Scattered snow showers and flurries with no additional accumulation is expected.
Tonight more snow moves in, but at this time up to 1″ of snow looks possible from late this evening through early Sunday morning.
Sunday, highs reach the mid 30s with cloudy skies and flurries.
Monday, sunshine returns, with a high of 40!
Then, back to another chance of snow on Tuesday.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for portions of the metro and the eastern half of Central Indiana until 7am Saturday morning. One to two inches of snow is possible in the advisory area, with a few spots possibly picking up more, especially northeast of the metro. How much snow is possible around Indianapolis? Right now it looks like up to an inch of snow. The reason our eastern counties look to get hit harder is because this winter weather system is moving from east to west. It’s part of the storm hitting the east coast right now.
The snow showers are expected to begin this evening and continue overnight, tapering off by Saturday morning. Wind gusts up to 25mph will create blowing and drifting snow, and reduced visibilities across Central Indiana, so use care if you are heading out tonight or early Saturday morning.
After the “prime time” Olympics tonight Chief Meteorologist Chris Wright will have your latest forecast, and remember, wake up with me on Sunrise Saturday morning beginning at 6am for the latest on what to expect.
During the day Saturday snow showers will taper off to flurries with highs in the low 30s.
Sunday, we may see a few breaks of sunshine with highs in the mid to upper 30s.
Soak up the sun as much as you can today, even though it’s chilly, because snow returns to Central Indiana tonight.
Highs today will reach about 30 degrees with increasing clouds, and snow showers developing for this evening into the overnight.
Saturday snow is likely, especially Northeast and East of the metro where 1-2″ of snow is possible. Around the Indy metro 1″ of snow is possible. This isn’t going to be a huge snowfall, but will probably make roadways slick. It’s all coming from the major storm on the East Coast. The storm is retrograding (moving backwards from east to west), so we’ll see a bit of snow. Highs will be right at the freezing mark tomorrow.
Sunday flurries are possible, but we’re not expecting accumulating snow as temps reach the low to mid 30s.
