Dangerous Wind Chills

For the most part, the accumulating snow is over. Portions of the state could pick up, up to an inch of snow, but now we’re left dealing with 40mph winds.

Official storm total for Indianapolis is 4.4″!  Yesterday we picked up 4.1″ breaking the previous record of 3.5″ in 1898!  Most spots picked up 2-5″ of snow with isolated areas picking up 6″.

Wind gusts up to 40mph today will create blowing and drifting snow that will keep many roads snow covered across Central Indiana.  Up to an additional inch of snow is possible, but the winds are really the big concern.  Temps will hit the teens, but most spots will feel like temps in the subzero range thanks to the wind chill.

Overnight, flurries are possible, but again, the story is wind.  Wind gusts up to 25mph are possible with lows dropping to the single digits.  Again, it will feel like -10 to 0 early Tuesday morning.

Tuesday, highs reach the upper teens with partly cloudy skies, and a mini-warm up begins!  (Just not as much as you’d probably like!)

Wednesday highs hit the mid 20s with increasing clouds.  Light snow showers are possible late Wednesday into Thursday.  We’re keeping our eyes on this next snow maker.

Ready for some sun… check out the weekend in the 7 day forecast!
