More Rounds Of SnowJanuary 17th, 2014 at 7:18 am by Pamela Gardner under Colts Forecast, Weather
Overnight we had scattered snow showers so don’t be surprised if you have a fresh dusting of snow this daybreak. Some areas didn’t get any snow. The hit-or-miss snow showers continue today.
On Forecast 8 VIPIR there is a small group of moderate snow showers southeast of Indianapolis. These showers are moving northeast and could leave around an inch of snow accumulation through mid-morning. Other than that, flurries and isolated snow showers will bring us around half an inch of accumulation.
Additional snow squalls will develop throughout the afternoon through this evening as an upper level low pressure system sticks around.
Temperatures are in the lower 30s to the east and in the teens to the west. Temps continue to fall all afternoon and evening until we reach the overnight lows in the single-digits and lower teens. It is already windy and the wind will make it feel bitter but will also blow the snow around. Reduced visibility is an issue in the heavier snow showers.
Tomorrow’s temps will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s so with our next clipper system we will get all snow. The snow showers move in after noon Saturday and will continue through 7pm. By that time we expect 2″ to 4″ of snow for everyone with isolated spots getting higher amounts. The snow to rain ratio is going to be higher since we have colder temps in place…with 20:1 when the system first moves in. More like 15:1 on the tail end of the system.
Temps moderate and drier air takes over Sunday into Monday. Big changes move in by mid-week next week. A hint of the polar vortex will return as we track highs in the lower teens and lows below zero.
