Cold and Snowy Weather Pattern

Posted By · December 17, 2014 at 10:24 pm

It will be cloudy and cold overnight, with a few flurries.  Temperatures will fall into the lower and middle 20s for a cold start to Thursday.

There is a weather system developing to our SW and it is forecast to move our way for Thursday.  There is a chance for light snow on Thursday.  We are not forecasting a lot of snow, but it will be cold enough for any snow to stick.  There will be enough light snow to cover the ground across parts of central Indiana on Thursday.


Another round of light snow is possible on Saturday, with minor accumulations possible.  It will stay cold through the weekend too, with highs in the lower 30s.

The SkyTrak 13 Weather Team is tracking a much stronger storm system for the holiday.  Right now we are forecasting rain for Tuesday.  The rain will start to change to snow on Christmas Eve and to all snow on Christmas Day.  Strong winds are a threat with this system too.  This is still a week away, so stay tuned for updates.

Posted By · December 9, 2014 at 4:26 pm
It is cloudy, cold and breezy and it will stay that way Tuesday night.  A few flurries are still possible, as temperatures fall into the middle and upper 20s.
The chill is here to stay through at least Thursday.  Morning clouds will give way to a bit of sunshine later Wednesday.  Highs are only forecast in the middle and upper 30s.

Highs will be stuck in the 30s on Thursday too, but we should see a bit more sunshine.
Clouds return on Friday, as a milder air mass starts to move our way.  Highs will be in the 40s on Friday.  We are forecasting upper 40s and lower 50s for the weekend.
Some of the latest analysis shows a slight chance for a stray shower early Sunday.  We will keep it out of the forecast for now, with the better chance for rain arriving later Monday into Tuesday.
