A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for portions of the metro and the eastern half of Central Indiana until 7am Saturday morning. One to two inches of snow is possible in the advisory area, with a few spots possibly picking up more, especially northeast of the metro. How much snow is possible around Indianapolis? Right now it looks like up to an inch of snow. The reason our eastern counties look to get hit harder is because this winter weather system is moving from east to west. It’s part of the storm hitting the east coast right now.
The snow showers are expected to begin this evening and continue overnight, tapering off by Saturday morning. Wind gusts up to 25mph will create blowing and drifting snow, and reduced visibilities across Central Indiana, so use care if you are heading out tonight or early Saturday morning.
After the “prime time” Olympics tonight Chief Meteorologist Chris Wright will have your latest forecast, and remember, wake up with me on Sunrise Saturday morning beginning at 6am for the latest on what to expect.
During the day Saturday snow showers will taper off to flurries with highs in the low 30s.
Sunday, we may see a few breaks of sunshine with highs in the mid to upper 30s.
