Fog This Morning…Tracking 3 Rounds Of SnowDecember 4th, 2013 at 6:02 am by Pamela Gardner under Weather
There are two winter systems that will move through Indiana. The first system doesn’t arrive until Thursday night.
This morning there are areas of patchy dense fog. Visibility is under a mile in areas west of Indianapolis. In Indianapolis the fog is high enough that it isn’t causing reduced visibility at ground-level, but the fog is hiding the tall downtown buildings. The patchy dense fog remains through 10am this morning. Temperatures are mild in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Highs today get very warm in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A few light rain showers are possible with gloomy conditions all afternoon. Lows tonight start falling to the upper 30s and lower 40s.
Temps on Thursday continue to fall throughout the day. Forecast 8 Futurecast shows rain first for Thursday…but as the temps fall the rain changes to all snow by 7pm. Areas along I-70 and to the north could see 2″ to 4″ of snow by 7am Friday. Southern Indiana may get more ice so that could hinder those snow totals. We are going with 1″ to 2″ of snow and ice through Friday daybreak. Another round of snow moves in Friday evening that could add a few more inches of snow to our totals.
We get a break from the snow on Saturday afternoon. A second system, and our third round of snow moves in Sunday through Monday. This system is a little more uncertain with the exact timing, track and totals. Stay tuned for further updates from the Forecast 8 Team.
