The much talked about warm up will be here today with highs in the low 40s. As we wait to climb into the mild territory, icy spots will be possible this morning as temps are hovering near freezing in a few spots.
For the afternoon we’ll see sunshine and warm temps. Our slow melt will begin.
Tonight temps fall into the upper 20s. Because we fall below freezing, icy spots will be possible where re-freezing occurs.
Wednesday will again be warm and mild in the 40s.
Thursday highs reach the low to mid 50s with strong to severe thunderstorms. Flooding and heavy rain are the biggest threats. We’ll keep you posted on the timing we get closer to the storm system moving in.
After a mild Thursday, temps slowly tumble for the weekend.
A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect at noon today until for Central Indiana. This will equal a messy evening commute.
Snow, sleet and freezing rain are all possible with snow accumulationg of 1-3″. Snow totals will be cut down if more sleet/freezing rain mixes in. They will be on the higher end if we stay all snow. North Central Indiana will pick up higher totals thanks to all snow.
Bottom line, plan on a messy afternoon/evening commute with slick spots and slow traffic.
Highs will reach about the freezing mark, and that’s what makes this forecast so tricky. A few degrees will change the precip type.
Tomorrow and Wednesday we warm into the 40s.
Thursday, the 50s with thunderstorms. Flooding will be a big concern, along with a few strong storms, so we’ll keep a very close eye on the forecast as we get closer to this event.
The Winter Weather Advisory as been expanded to include the Indianapolis, and counties to the north. It will run until 8pm tonight. It’s not the amount of snow, but the timing that will cause the most concern with a slick evening rush hour tonight.
Highs will reach the mid 20s today. Generally 2-3″ of snow will be common for most of Central Indiana, however, for our cities south of I-70, pockets of 3″+ will be possible.
The snow will taper off by 7 to 8pm tonight, with just a few flurries and temps falling into the single digits overnight. Wind chills Saturday morning will feel like -10 to 0.
Saturday we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds, but by Saturday night another quick snowmaker moves through. An inch or two of snow looks possible.
Our warm up starts Monday with highs in the 40s, and rain. More rain is coming in the 7 day, and that could equal flooding potential. We’ll keep you posted.
It seems strange to say we’re warming up, and include snow chances, but that’s exactly what’s happening.
Highs will reach the mid 20s today with partly cloudy skies.
Tonight won’t be as cold with lows around 12. Yes, it will still be cold, but not as brutal as it has been.
Thursday we warm into the mid 30s!
A chance of snow moves in Friday and Saturday. We could pick up 1-3″ of snow. Stay tuned for the timing and fine tuning of the snow amounts.
Next week the 40s are back, and we could see rain instead of snow.
We’re starting off with subzero temps this morning, and wind chills down to -20. A Wind Chill Advisory is in effect until noon today. Highs will top out in the teens with partly cloudy skies.
Tonight temps fall into the single digits with increasing clouds.
More light snow is on the way for the weekend.
Snow develops Saturday. We could see a few light snow showers in the morning, but as of right now Saturday afternoon and evening snow will become more likely. 1-3″ of snow is possible, the totals look to be on the lighter side. Highs will top out in the low 20s.
Sunday a few snow showers will stick around with highs in the low 20s.
We don’t “warm” up to the freezing mark until next Thursday.
Snow totals continue to roll in, and so far Indy has picked up 7.4″ of snow, that puts us at 44.2″ for the season!
An additional 1-2″ of snow is possible as we head into the afternoon as temps reach the mid 20s.
You’ll want to shovel and clear all the snow you can today. Temps fall to -2 tonight, and only make it into the single digits Thursday.
As of 4am 7.1″ of snow has fallen in Indianapolis. We will continue to update the totals for other cities across Central Indiana, or you can add your own total below! The following totals are preliminary and will be updated as spotters report totals.
Terre Haute 7.3″
6.25″ Broad Ripple
The Winter Storm Warning is still in effect for Central Indiana until 1pm. We could see additional light snow this morning of 1-2″, and also freezing rain. Blowing snow will remain a concern with winds out of the north up to 10mph.
Tonight temps fall to -2, and we’ll see wind chills dip to -20.
Thursday will be dry, but highs will only warm into the single digits.
Another chance of snow moves in for the weekend, but we’re not looking at as much accumulation as we’ve seen from this latest round.
Snow will continue to develop across Central Indiana this afternoon, making for a messy evening commute. The heaviest snow is expected to fall between 5pm and 1am.
At times, the snowfall rates will be an inch an hour, making travel hazardous and difficult. Crews will have a hard time keeping up with the snow as it falls.
A Winter Storm Warning goes into effect at 1pm, and will continue through Wednesday afternoon.
Snow totals along and north of I-70 of up to 12″ of snow cannot be ruled out. As we said yesterday, the “heavier” snow line could be pushed south, and that is exactly what we’ve done with this newest snowfall potential map.
Sleet is still possible in our southern counties, but if sleet does not mix in, we will be looking at totals on the higher side of the predictions there as well (per the map).
Colder air moves in behind the snow, and subzero lows will again be possible Thursday and Friday morning, with another chance of snow Sunday.
Be safe, and please keep checking in with us on air, online, and through the Skytrak Weather app. We’ll keep you posted through the storm.
