Light Snow and Light Freezing Rain Overnight

Posted By · January 26, 2015 at 10:23 pm

There is a fast moving weather system bringing light snow and light freezing rain to Indiana.  By late Monday evening, there were reports of freezing rain across Illinois and NW Indiana.  Flurries and light snow were reported in Indianapolis, Bloomington and other central Indiana locations.  There is some concern the light snow may mix or change to light freezing rain overnight.  Be prepared for slick roads through the Tuesday morning commute.  We are not forecasting significant accumulations of snow, but a quick coating may make roads slick.  Any freezing rain that falls will lead to icy roads through Tuesday morning.  There is some sunshine in the Tuesday afternoon forecast, with highs in the upper 20s and lower 30s.

PLANNER

Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry.  We are tracking rain chances on Thursday.  The rain may mix with a wintry mix, as it arrives early Thursday morning and may mix with snow before it ends Thursday night.  We will keep you updated.  There is another chance for snow on Sunday.

Few Snow Showers Tonight

Posted By · January 26, 2015 at 4:17 pm
The SkyTrak13 Weather Team is tracking a fast moving weather system for Monday night.  This will bring light snow to central Indiana.  We are not forecasting significant accumulations of snow, but a quick coating to an inch is possible through early Tuesday.  This might be enough for a few slick roads.  It will be cold overnight, with lows in the upper teens and lower 20s.
The big snow will be along the East Coast, as parts of the NE will get 2-3 feet of snow.  Blizzard conditions are expected, along with significant travel troubles.  This is something to keep in mind if you have travel plans to the East Coast early this week.

Closer to home, expect a mix of clouds and sun, with highs in the upper 20s and lower 30s on Tuesday.

PLANNER

A gradual warming trend into the upper 30s and lower 40s is on the way for the middle part of the week.  Wednesday will be dry, with rain chances on Thursday.  As colder air arrives Thursday night, the rain may briefly mix with some snow.

High temperatures fall back into the 30s for Friday and the weekend.  There is another chance for snow on Sunday.

Light Snow Chances this Week

Posted By · January 26, 2015 at 4:44 am

Colder air has settled in and we are running more than 10 degrees cooler than this time yesterday morning.  The overnight snow has moved out, a quick coating of snow has made some roads slick. Today we’ll warm up to a high of 30 with a chance for more snow tonight. 

monday today

At this point just a covering of snow is possible, and with temps falling into the teens tonight, expect a few slick spots for your Tuesday morning commute. 

monday futuretrak

We could see a few flurries stick around tomorrow as highs only reach the freezing mark, but while we are looking flurries the east coast is dealing with a dangerous weather system.

monday tuesday

A developing winter storm will bring the potential for 2-3 feet of snow and blizzard conditions for the northeast tonight through Wednesday.  This will have an impact from Washington DC to NYC, Philadelphia and Boston.

monday ne

Nothing like that in your 7 day forecast.  We’ll see another chance for light snow Wednesday night into Thursday, but as temps warm that will turn to rain on Thursday.  This weekend we could see a wintry mix… we’ll keep you posted as we continue to track the weekend outlook.

Light Snow and Colder Overnight

Posted By · January 25, 2015 at 9:17 pm

There will still be some lingering snow showers through about 1am Monday.  Snow totals were in the range of 2-4 inches mainly north and northeast of Indianapolis.  By late Sunday evening, temperatures had fallen into the lower 20s across the northern half of Indiana and that temperature drop will continue.  With temperatures in the upper teens and lower 20, there will some slick roads through the Monday morning commute.

Monday will start with a mix of clouds and sun.  The day will end with a few snow showers.  The chance for scattered snow showers will linger into Tuesday.  We are not forecasting any significant accumulations of snow early in the week, but a steady burst of snow will be enough to cover the ground.  The big snow early this week will be across the northeastern part of the country.  2-3 feet of snow is possible across the NE and there will be major travel problems through mid-week.  This is a winter storm you will hear a lot about over the next few days.

Highs on Monday and Tuesday will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s.  Highs climb back into the upper 30s and lower 40s mid-week.  We are tracking a developing weather system for late Wednesday night and Thursday.  Right now we are forecasting another wintry mess, with rain and snow possible.  We will keep you updated.

Colder air arrives overnight, with temperatures falling into the upper teens and lower 20s.  Highs on Monday and Tuesday will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s.  There will be a few snow showers possible Monday evening through Tuesday.  Any accumulations will be minor.

Wednesday will be dry, with a chance for rain changing to snow on Thursday.  A few flurries will be possible early Friday, with a mix of clouds and sun Friday afternoon.

We have the weekend dry for now, but we will watch a couple of waves in the atmosphere and a large area of arctic air forecast for the NE part of the country.  Speaking of the NE part of the country, a developing winter storm will bring the potential for 2-3 feet of snow and blizzard conditions.  This will have an impact from Washington DC, New York City, Philadelphia and Boston.  Here is a look with FutureTrak13.

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.
