At times the rain will be heavy, and flooding is a concern, especially in our southern counties.  That’s why a Flood Watch is in effect until Saturday afternoon.

Weekend Winter Storm

Posted By · February 20, 2015 at 11:24 am

The arctic air is somewhat easing, and now our attention is turned to accumulating snow in Central Indiana this weekend.

Highs will reach the low 20s today with mostly cloudy skies, there could be a few flurries or snow showers too.

Tonight winter storm warning and advisories go into place.

friday advisories

Our main chance for snow will ramp up tonight.  After 10pm snow is expected to move in and last through Saturday afternoon.  Here’s how the hour by hour forecast plays out through FutureTrak13.

friday 10pmfriday 2amfriday 5amfriday 8amfriday 1pmfriday 6pm

It does appear that sleet / ice / rain could mix in, in our southern counties, if that happens, snow totals will be reduced there.  We will be watching this very closely.  This is our latest thinking of snow totals, again, this could change depending on the type of precip that falls.

friday snow map

The take away from this forecast is that travel Saturday will be messy.  Expect slick roads, limited visibility and changing conditions if you are doing any long distance traveling.

In the 7 day forecast, another arctic blast is headed our way early next week.
