Highs today will reach the low 30s with thickening cloud cover as we head into the afternoon. There may be a few snow showers during the evening commute, but the majority of the snow looks to move in tonight and stick around through Tuesday morning. This will be a light snow all night, so we won’t pick up much. We’re looking to get 1-2″ of snow from this event. North of I-70 will pick up higher totals than areas South of I-70. Once again, it’s the magical divider!
This isn’t a huge snowfall, but our concern is what could happen Tuesday morning as warmer air mixes in. Snow showers could turn to sleet or even freezing drizzle. So, roads could be very slick Tuesday morning. The bulk of the precip should move out by midday Tuesday.
Wednesday and Thursday look dry, but then we start to focus on a winter storm that moves in late Thursday night and sticks around for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It is very early in the game right now, so we won’t throw out snow predictions. I will say that this storm looks to have significant snow accumulation and could cause travel problems across the state considering how many people will be out on the roads.
Stay tuned to WTHR and the weather blog for updates. I know you want specifics about what’s going to happen, but as of right now, it’s just too early.
