Single-digit lows and another chance of snowDecember 10th, 2013 at 6:47 pm by Robb Ellis under Weather
Bundle up! Some of the coldest temperatures of the year are expected in the next week. There are also several chances to see snow, including the possibility of accumulating snow this weekend.
Mostly clear skies are expected, though a few clouds will roll in from the north before daybreak. Overnight lows in the mid 10s. Winds will continue to lighten, but may still be brisk by morning.
A few flurries are possible throughout the day, especially north of Indy. Highs in the upper 20s. Accumulating snow will be possible in Northern Indiana and near Chicago, for those that may be traveling north.
This night will likely be the coldest of the season so far, with lows expected around 5 degrees. In locations with significant snow on the ground, lows near 0 are likely. Model guidance suggests between 2 and 7 degrees for Indy, with many spots getting quite a bit colder.
Thursday and Friday:
Cold temperatures remain in place, with Thursday being the coldest day of the forecast. Highs will struggle to get to 20. Temps warm 10 degrees by Friday with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies expected. Lows will warm as well, with nighttime temperatures in the 10s and 20s.
This will be our next best chance for snow. Details on the exact track of this system still remain a good ways out, but it appears accumulating snow is likely. Initial estimates of 2 to 4 inches of snow could be possible, but that number will be adjusted as we get closer to Saturday. Highs will be near freezing, with lows in the 10s.
Flurries are likely, along with gusty winds ushering in cold temperatures. Highs in the low 20s. Low temperatures Sunday night will drop to near 0
