Low Clouds and Drizzle Now but a Tricky Storm System Later This WeekBy
Low clouds, fog and drizzle will continue overnight, with nearly steady temperatures in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Scattered showers are in the Wednesday forecast, but it will be warm with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
The SkyTrak 13 Weather Team is tracking a developing storm system scheduled to arrive Thursday night and last through Friday night. This is a complex storm system, because we are expecting rain, sleet and snow. This makes it difficult to forecast exact amounts of ice and snow this far out. Our early estimations are 1-2 inches of snow north of Indianapolis and 2-5 inches of sleet and snow from Indianapolis south. Remember this is still developing and we will continue to make adjustments to the timing, the type of precipitation and the amounts. What you do need to know is travel will be fine on Thursday, but it will be tricky on Friday. We are expecting rain Thursday evening to mix with sleet and freezing rain Thursday night and early Friday morning. This will change to all snow on Friday. Stay tuned for updates.
There will be another round of snow possible on Sunday and another on Monday. It is an active 7 day forecast and cold. By the weekend, lows will be near 10 degrees and highs only in the 20s. This arctic air is forecast to linger through early next week.
