Wintry Mix Moving OutOctober 23rd, 2013 at 7:23 am by Pamela Gardner under Weather
A few light snow showers linger in eastern Indiana around Richmond, along with a wintry mix south of I-70. A wintry mix is found in northern Indiana too. Light drizzle and a few snow flakes along with patchy fog are left across the rest of central Indiana. The northeastern corner of the state could see lake-effect rain later today. Snowfall accumulation overnight has reached a dusting near Crawfordsville to 3″ in Jay County. The snow is melting quickly though and will be all gone later this morning.
Temperatures are in the mid 30s with wind chill temps in the upper 20s and lower 30s. You need that winter coat this daybreak!
Wind gusts reach up to 25 mph from the west this afternoon with highs reaching the mid 40s. Lows tonight dip into the low to mid 30s. Cold enough that we will have a widespread freeze. A Freeze Watch is in effect Thursday morning and again Friday morning for most of central Indiana. A Freeze Watch/Warning will no longer be issued in northern Indiana due to the fact that they have already had a widespread freeze.
Temperatures slowly warm up as we get into the weekend. High temps will be in the mid to upper 40s Thursday and Friday. Highs reach the 50s for Saturday and Sunday. The 60s briefly return for next week. A large rain-maker moves through mid-week next week.
