Old Man Winter Stays

Posted By · February 16, 2015 at 8:53 am

What a day in Southern Indiana! Bedford as of 9 am has already picked up 5 inches of snow and could see up to 7 inches of snow. Look for projected amounts of 1 to 3 inches from the Metro area south and 3 to 5 inches of snow from Bloomington to Columbus.

The cold of winter isn’t over yet. Look for midweek temperatures to drop to 10 degrees for highs both Wednesday and Thursday. The warmest day in the entire 7 day forecast will be Saturday when our high gets up to 34 degrees.

Look for a daily chance for snow showers during the week ahead, but nothing like today.

Cold Start, Better Weekend

Posted By · February 5, 2015 at 7:09 am

The snow is over. Most spots got 1-2 inches with a little more in isolated northern towns. Today, it’s  a cold one with sub zero wind chills. Be prepared for a cold day at the school bus stop this morning. We have a number of school delays.

With the new snow, the colder air and the gusty winds there will be slick roads through the morning commute.  We’re looking for a wamer day tomorrow thanks to a southwest wind with a mix of clouds and sun.

We are forecasting a temperature rebound for Friday and the weekend.  Highs will be in the 30s on Friday and in the upper 30s and lower 40s this weekend.  There is a chance for rain on Sunday.

Better Today, Snow Tomorrow

Posted By · February 3, 2015 at 3:23 am
 

A lot of the snow some of you have on the ground will actually melt later today. Today will be breezy, with a mix of sun and clouds. Again where there is snow on the ground, it will be colder. Look for a high in the mid 30s later this afternoon.

There is a chance for light snow north of Indianapolis later Tuesday into early Wednesday. We are also tracking a better chance for snow for all of central Indiana late Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday morning. Generally, we’re looking for the potential of a couple of inches of snow for most of the area. An Arctic front moves in Thursday, meaning highs will only be around 20 on Thursday, with more single digit lows possible too.

Cool But Dry

Posted By · January 28, 2015 at 3:19 am

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.

Rain To Snow

Posted By · January 25, 2015 at 5:27 am

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.

timeline

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.

Snow Coming Sunday

Posted By · January 24, 2015 at 5:39 am

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.

Cooler Today, Weekend Changes

Posted By · January 22, 2015 at 3:09 am

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.

Slow Warming

Posted By · January 16, 2015 at 3:30 am

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.Daypart
