Snow Chances Fading Christmas Eve

Posted By · December 24, 2014 at 3:37 pm

Our chances for accumulating Christmas Eve snow are fading tonight as the moisture moves out faster than the cold air moves in.  Still, some snow flakes are expected to mix in with rain drops, and in some spots, we could see some snow accumulation on grassy spots.

eve eve

My big concern is wind gusts out of the west up to 35mph, and with temps falling near freezing after midnight, a few slick spots developing, especially for Christmas morning.

FutureTrak13 shows rain still on the radar at 6pm.

eve 6pm

And by 10:30pm snowflakes.

Christmas Day we could start out with a few flurries, but the clouds are expected to break, and that will give us sunshine and a high in the mid 30s.

eve xmas day

The 7 day forecast is active.  Our next chance of rain moves in late Friday and Saturday.  Then, we are looking at a chance of a wintry mix Sunday, and maybe even snow early next week.  Check back with us, we’ll continue to watch and time out what to expect.

Monday Rain Update

Posted By · December 22, 2014 at 12:27 pm

Scattered showers are moving into Central Indiana as temps warm into the 40s this afternoon, and continue to rise as we go into tonight.

FutureTrak13 shows rain will be widespread by 7:30 this evening.

monday futuretrak13 730

As we go into tonight, temps will be on the rise and we stay in the mid 40s overnight with scattered showers.

As of right now, Tuesday doesn’t look like a washout.  Spotty showers will be likely in the morning, with a chance during the day.  Rain becomes more likely late Tuesday night and will last through Christmas Eve.  Rain totals by Wednesday night reach about up to 1 to 2″.  Around 5pm Christmas Eve rain turns to snow, and a quick light accumulation of snow around an inch or two is possible.  We will be watching the latest, and that is subject to change as we continue to analyze new information.

monday futuretrak13 5pm

We remain in an active pattern in the 7 day forecast with more snow chances for the weekend.

Hints of Sunshine Today

Posted By · December 19, 2014 at 3:47 am

We’re off to a cold start this morning with temps in the teens where the skies are clearing and 20s elsewhere.  There is a bit of a wind chill in some locations.

We haven’t had much sunshine this week, and today the gloomy skies continue.  Highs will reach the low 30s with the chance for a few peeks of sunshine.  Mostly cloudy skies are expected, and the clouds will win out again.

friday forecast

Tonight temps fall into the low 20s with mostly cloudy skies.

We’ve been tracking a system for Central Indiana Saturday.  As of right now, that looks to stay south of us, but we will still see cloud cover and a chance for flurries and highs around the freezing mark.

We’re still closely watching next week.  As of now, it looks like rain will begin late Monday and continue Tuesday.  Wednesday rain begins to mix with some snow and light snow may be possible on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  Wednesday and Thursday windy conditions look likely.  We’ll keep you posted on the latest track of this system, so check back with us often.

Posted By · December 16, 2014 at 3:46 am

A mild, damp day is ahead for Central Indiana with a big temperature plunge coming our way by Wednesday morning.

We’ll likely reach our high temps this morning across the state in the mid to upper 40s, with temps nearly steady if not slightly falling for the afternoon.

The best chance of rain is this morning, but we can’t rule out spotty showers or drizzle for the afternoon.  It will be a breezy afternoon with winds out of the west up to 25mph.

As temps fall tonight any lingering moisture could turn into a few flurries.  Temps really turn chilly tonight as we fall into the mid 20s.

Late Friday into Saturday we’re watching for the possibility of light snow.  We’ll keep you posted as we get closer to the weekend.
