It is a cool, quiet morning in Indiana today. Although there will be slick spots in many parts of Indiana thanks to a quick burst of snow overnight, there should be no problems getting to work or school. Our high today will top out at 36 degrees.
It is again, going to be snow free today. In Indianapolis, we are more than 14 inches below average for snow this season. We’ve had just 2.5″ of snow since December 1st. There are snow chances in the forecast.
It will be dry on Wednesday, with high temperatures in the lower and middle 30s. We are watching a system that will arrives late Wednesday and into Thursday. We are a bit concerned as the rain starts to fall, it might be cold enough at the surface for some freezing rain late Wednesday night. At this point, the weekend looks mainly dry but there is a chance for rain and snow later in the day on Sunday.
|On This Date in Central Indiana Weather History……|
|2009 : A snow storm brings significant snow to much of central Indiana, with freezing rain and sleet mixed in across southern sections. Snowfall in the Indianapolis area exceeded 12 inches.|
Good morning, and let’s all welcome the Alberta Clipper to town!
Be prepared for a day of change in weather. Rain moves in this morning and eventually will change to snow. That change to snow will happen earlier the farther north you are. This means the change to snow by late morning north of Indianapolis. Where the change to snow happens first is where the higher snowfall potential is.
There is a winter weather advisory in effect from Kokomo to Tipton, Muncie and Richmond. In the advisory area, 4+ inches of snow is possible. Just south of this line, 2-4 inches of snow is in the forecast for Crawfordsville, Noblesville and Greenfield. We have 1-2 inches of snow in the forecast for Indianapolis. South of Indianapolis, the totals will be an inch or less. Look for the rain to change to snow in parts of the Metro around 4pm or anytime after.
Monday will be dry and colder, with lows in the teens and highs in the 20s. There are a couple of weather systems to watch for next week. Flurries and light snow are possible on Tuesday and a rain/snow mix is possible Wednesday night through Thursday.
Let’s look for at least a little sunshine later today as highs get close to 40 degrees over most of Central Indiana. The next round of weather comes in tomorrow as a fast moving Alberta Clipper moves into Indiana.
Light snow is possible early Sunday, especially as folks are headed to church and especially north of Indianapolis. We will then see rain and a mix of snow and rain over parts of the region. As the low moves into the state, moving north or south 50 miles could change snow amounts. Right now our forecast for much of the metro seeing amounts to 1″, 1-2″ just north of I-74 to Kokomo, and 2-4″ from Monticello-Peru-Marion to Fort Wayne.
We’ll have the latest on any changes during the day.
The rain and snow has ended, for the most part in Indiana, but because temperatures have cooled off, we’re looking at some icy spots and slick roads in the area. Later today, that won’t be an issue as highs reach the upper 30s. We have the forecast dry weather through the start of the weekend. Lows will be in the middle 20s and forecast highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s on Friday and Saturday.
Our strange weather pattern changes on Sunday. We are tracking a fast moving clipper for the end of the weekend. There is a chance that some of the snow we get could stick to the ground Sunday into early Monday. As we get closer to Sunday we’ll be able to see if the system comes over the central part of the state and if it does, how much snow we’ll see add up.
Looks like a nice day awaits us later. Yesterday, we reached a high of 36 and we’ll get close to that today.
We’ve had Saturday on our mind for several days. Mid to upper 40s remain likely for areas without snow cover. Even north of I-74 highs should still hit 40 degrees and likely melt a good deal of the snow. It could be windy with gusts to 25 miles per hour.
East side of a cold front should be a mostly sunny location to start the weekend. A line of gusty showers accompanies the frontal passage Saturday evening and pre-dawn Sunday. High temperatures will be about 10 degrees colder behind the front Sunday. Flurries and snow showers remain possible within the overcast Sunday too… with a localized dusting fair game.
The cold front teams up with developing low pressure off the Atlantic Coast to set up a “rain train” in the northeast. This spells trouble for AFC Championship Game conditions in Foxboro. Looks like rain could fall during the entire game.
It looks like the weather pattern has finally moved into position to take a warmer turn. We’ll see temperatures slowly climb as we head into the weekend and most if not all of the snow on the ground will melt the next few days.
We’re looking for a high at the freezing mark today. This is just the beginning of a milder temperature trend that will last through the start of the weekend. Highs on Friday are forecast in the middle 30s, with some sunshine .
Look for a return to the 40s by Saturday with winds gusting near 35mph.
The average high is 35 degrees and we will be close to the that number early next week, with some sun on Monday and snow chances on Tuesday and Wednesday.
By the way, for the Colts-New England game Sunday, look for a real good chance for rain and temperatures in the low 40s in the Boston area during the game.
It’s a wet start to our day in Indiana. Colder air arrives later this morning and temperatures will fall and the rain will change to snow. The change from rain to snow is forecast to happen for NW Indiana as early as noon. There will be a few hours of steady, wet snow. Snow totals from Indianapolis north are forecast in the range of 1-2 inches. Not only will we have rain, wet and snow but winds will gust in excess of 25 mph so drive with caution if you are out tonight.
Christmas Day will include a few flurries or snow showers early, with highs in the lower 30s. Overall, it looks like Christmas will be quiet and cool weatherwise.
Looks like we will warm a bit Friday and Saturday, with highs in the 40s. A few showers are possible late Friday and Saturday. Another round of colder arrives Sunday into Monday and a few snow showers are possible to end the weekend
We begin the day with wet pavement and with a few showers today, we will see temperatures jump to 52, 15 degrees above average.
The rain doesn’t stop there so be careful if you are traveling the next few days. It will still be warm enough for rain through early Wednesday and it will be breezy too. The colder air arrives Wednesday afternoon and the rain will change to snow. Light snow is in the forecast Christmas Eve through Christmas morning.
Some of our early estimates look for up to an inch of rain around Central Indiana by Christmas morning. The farther south you live, the less snow you’ll see.
Temperatures will be in the 30s on Christmas Day, but rebound back into the lower 40s on Friday. Friday will be cloudy, with a couple of showers possible. Another weather system is forecast to arrive this weekend, with rain late Saturday changing to snow early Sunday. Our weather pattern will be active over the next 7-10 days.
