Temperatures are in the range of 45-50 degrees right now and temperatures will be nearly steady overnight. The steadiest rain and snow on Doppler 13 Radar right now is across the northern Great Lakes. The precipitation will be in the form of drizzle locally overnight, with a better chance for scattered showers on Wednesday. Wednesday will be warm too, with highs near 60 degrees.
The SkyTrak13 Weather Team is analzying a difficult storm system for the end of the week. Right now we are forecasting the biggest impact from this system late Thursday night through Friday evening. After some rain on Wednesday, Thursday will start dry. Thursday will end with rain developing. As colder air begins to interact with this system, the rain will change to sleet and freezing rain from Indianapolis south. This will be enough for some ice accumulations. Even colder air will change the icy mess to all snow on Friday. Where it stays all snow, a couple of inches (at least) are possible. We will know more, as this system gets closer to us, so stay tuned for updates. Be prepared for tricky travel Friday morning and Friday night.
