After this beautiful day, a little rain moves in, but overall a most excellent Easter Holiday weekend.
Rain will move in, (mainly drizzle and light rain ) on and off from 2 am until 9 am.Nicole Misencik will probably have some rain on the radar when she starts Weekend Sunrise tomorrow morning.
Look for a lot of sun and a quick warming in the afternoon. We should get close to, if not hit, 60 tomorrow.
Here is the outlook for the week ahead…
MONDAY Chance for a little wet snow or flurries from mid morning until early afternoon High 40
TUESDAY Sunny by the noon hour High 42
WED Sunny and pleasant High 44
THU Mostly sunny and mild High 55
FRIDAY Partly sunny skies High 57
SAT Partly sunny and beautiful High 62
Good morning. As promised, the snow fell and now it is time to dig out. Gotta tell you, it almost killed me to predict as much snow as I did this weekend, because in 33 years of forecasting weather in Indiana, I have never forecast that much snow that late in the season. Well, the forecast was right and by Friday we’ll be back in the 50s!
Snow amounts all over the place today…take a look.
Hartford City 7.8″
Indy Airport 6.2″
Less than an inch more of snow on deck for today with most of the rest of the week dry and warmer.
Heavy snow will likely develop late this afternoon and continue tonight into Monday morning. By Monday afternoon, here are the projected snow totals. As of right now, the heaviest and highest snow totals will develop along I-70. So, the 10″ totals will more than likely come from that area.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Central Indiana through noon Monday. At times, snow will be very heavy and winds will gust up to 30mph.
Through 2pm today, a light wintry mix is in the forecast.
From 2pm to 7pm, heavy snow will begin to develop.
And, from 7pm to 7am, heavy snow is likely. I’m not ruling out thundersnow during this time.
Monday light snow showers will continue through the early afternoon.
The 50s are back in the forecast as we head into the weekend.
Looking at latest data and breaking down forecast for 6 pm.
Here is what things look like to me….
The Metro area will be under a WINTER STORM WARNING 8 am Sunday until Noon Monday.
*Light-moderate snow during the morning
*Wintry mix or rain in the afternoon (could have 2-3 hours with nothing happening, especially between 1 and 4 pm)
*Snow falls all night into morning rush hour
*Winds gust from 10-20 mph (30 mph gusts)
*Periods of snow fall all night into morning rush hour
*Expect school delays and messy roads
*Tapers off around lunch time
SNOW TOTALS FROM SUNDAY-MONDAY AT NOON
HOW RARE IS SUCH A STORM?
The record for the most snow for this late in March is 5.8” on March 24, 1912. Nothing more than 3 inches has ever been recorded in Indy past March 24th until fall in any year.
Oh well, here we go.
We are now officially in the Spring season but you wouldn’t know it by today’s weather. Look for highs only in the low to mid 30s today, a full 20 degrees below average for this time of year. In the meantime, we are looking at dry weather until Saturday night, when a wintry mix will come in and turn into rain Sunday.
I know you probably don’t want to remember this but….one year ago we had a high in the low 80s. Hang in there, it will get better!
As expected a quick burst of heavy snow and sleet is moving through the I-70 corridor now. Temperatures are well above freezing and will remain that way tonight…so roads remain wet for the Monday morning commute. You can keep tabs on the progression of the wintry mix with Live Doppler 13 Radar
Here is series of our latest model run of Future Trak 13. Warmer air will change the mix to a cold rain the rest of tonight. Don’t be surprised to hear some thunder with heavier pockets of rain south of I-70.
Highs Monday will be the warmest of the week, and that’s not saying much with mid to upper 40s. No hope for normal temperatures over the next 10 days! What a start to spring
What a difference one year makes. On St. Patrick’s Day, in Indianapolis last year, temps rose to 77 degrees. It will be 39 degrees cooler this year. In the meantime, the 7 day outlook calls for temperatures to be below average every day next week, but fortunately, we’ll see a good deal of sunshine. Hope you enjoy the weekend!Posted By
Despite a cold start this morning, temperatures will warm up big time the next few days. After seeing a high of 42 degrees today, look for highs to reach the low 50s tomorrow and the mid 50s Sunday. Rain will move in during the day Sunday. In case you are wondering, yes, we did have a substantial snow melt yesterday. As of 5 am here are the snow depth readings…hope you enjoy the weekend!
