Snow and Arctic Air

The SkyTrak 13 Weather Team is tracking a fast moving arctic front.  This will move our way overnight.  Right now we are forecasting a quick coating of snow just before sunrise.  With temperatures in the teens, this little amount of snow will stick and some slick roads are possible for the Friday morning drive.

NOTES

Lake effect snow squalls develop Friday afternoon and will last through Saturday morning.  Higher snow totals are expected where these squalls develop.  Right now the best chance to have a 1-3 inch snowfall Friday into early Saturday is northeast of Indianapolis.
