Coldest Air Yet To Come And Followed By Weekend Snow System

Hate it or love it… there’s no denying the snow offers a picturesque backdrop in Central Indiana.  Here are just two examples of our Winter Wonderland

As advertised, snow amounts were highest south of I-70… and as much as 3.2″ in Seymour.  Most locations within the swath (in the WTHR viewing area) fell within 1″-2″.


The bright sky is very deceiving, with the origin of this air mass from the Arctic.  Temps stay below freezing and wind chills are parked in the single digits this afternoon.


Overnight wind chills will go below zero and require the utmost respect if you must be outside.


The only “heat” in town will be that team from South Florida.  If you’re heading to the game no snow to worry about.  But it won’t be too pleasant walking into the Fieldhouse in the bitter air.  A win be our Pacers will can cure that though!

Highs rebound into the upper 20s Wednesday.  A reinforcing Arctic front moves through tomorrow, and combined with a clear sky, paves the way for our coldest night of the week.  Lows will be near or below zero Thursday morning.


No big changes to our thinking that we’re in line for another accumulating snow this weekend.  Computer models (this far out) are in fair alignment, and place Central Indiana in a favorable position for shovelable snow.


It’s too early to pinpoint exact amounts and location…. but models hint of over 4″ in parts of Central Indiana.  Timing looks to be Friday night into Saturday, with wrap around snow showers and flurries flying Sunday within strong cold air advection.
