Two More Clipper Snows Next 30 Hours

It’s been quite a snowy start to December in Central Indiana.  At just under 9″, Indianapolis is already over the monthly snowfall average of 6.9″.  There’s more on the way with two clipper systems moving through the next 30 hours.  Even if you’re not a fan of snow there’s no arguing its beauty.


Winter Wonderland is the best way to describe these pictures from Linda Seifert (above) and Derrick Synder near the Purdue University campus in West Lafayette.

Keep your cameras handy with more snow accumulation expected for some this evening, and again tomorrow.

Snow will spread by 6pm from the northwest and race across the northern half of Indiana.  Clipper system #2 will be long gone by 7am Tuesday.


Areas north of I-70/74 have the best “chance” of seeing an inch or more… but a decent dusting to just under an inch is fair game for the Indy metro area.

We’re still on track for a brief warm up later this week, as temperatures slowly climb into the upper 40s/lower 50s for a few hours Thursday night into Friday morning.

7dayLong range models continue to advertise a heavy precipitation event in the Great Lakes/Ohio Valley Sunday.  It’s too early for any high level of confidence.  But as of now all modes of precipitation are on the table for the viewing area.  Rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow could all possibly be heavy.  Stay tuned for updates as we track a potential snafu for holiday traveling.  Thanks for reading the blog – Sean Ash
