We are tracking a developing weather system for Friday and the weekend. The first wave brought a few snow showers to the northern half of the state Thursday evening. The second wave of this system will arrive later Friday and last through Saturday. The second wave will have moisture too. This is a complex system and the precipitation will not all be snow. We are expecting it to start as snow Friday evening. It will change to rain across the southern third of Indiana first, so any snow accumulations will be less than an inch and more rain than snow is expected. Across the central part of the state, there will be a quick inch of snow followed by some sleet then rain Friday night through Saturday. We are most concerned with the northern third of our area. It will stay snow longer and 2-4 inches will be possible Friday night and Saturday. There will also be an ice threat, as the snow changes to some freezing rain. Travel on Saturday could be tricky the farther north you travel.
Sunday will be dry and colder. Next week starts quiet, but it won’t stay that way. We are tracking the potential for a winter storm with heavy snow potential Tuesday and Wednesday. This storm is still developing out in the Pacific Ocean, so we don’t have an exact track yet. The track is key to what type of precipitation (snow, sleet, freezing rain or rain) and how much. We will know more this weekend, so stay tuned for updates.
