Weekend Winter Storm with Heavy Snow & IceBy
The SkyTrak13 weather team is tracking a significant winter storm this weekend with heavy snow, sleet and ice all possible for Central Indiana.
Let’s cover this top weather headline first.
As of right now snow showers will start after 8pm Saturday night and continue through Monday morning. Along and north of I-70 6″ – 10″ of snow will be likely. That’s if the precip stays almost all snow. The line between ice/sleet and snow is something we will continue to analyze. South of I-70 up to 6″ of snow is possible with sleet and up to .25″ of ice possible. Temperature will be key and if more freezing rain/sleet mixes in snow totals will be lowered, if it’s all snow, they may have to be bumped up.
The snow will continue into Monday morning. Travel is expected to become very difficult Sunday, and continuing Monday morning.
A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for all of Central Indiana for Saturday night through Monday morning.
Before that system gets here we’ll enjoy a mix of sun and clouds today with highs in the low 30s.
Up to 1″ of snow is possible tonight, but not everyone will get snow as temps fall to the upper 20s.
Saturday mostly cloudy skies with temps in the upper 30s before the storm moves in. Check in with us often for any and all changes to the forecast.
