Any Break From The Snow?January 18th, 2014 at 7:30 pm by Pamela Gardner under Weather
The clipper system that is bringing Indiana the snow showers will move out tonight…then Sunday is drier and a bit warmer.
Right now: Heavy snow continues in most places in Indiana. Some breaks in the snow have developed due to drier air in southern and western Indiana. Snow totals are in the 2″ to 4″ range with isolated spots getting higher and a couple places getting lower totals due to where the heaviest snow bands set up. We could add another 1″ to 2″ on top of what we have now. A Winter Weather Advisory continues through 1am Sunday.
This January is the 3rd snowiest on record in Indianapolis with 22.8″ of snow so far. The top snowiest is 30.6″ in 1978 and the second is 1996 with 25.2″ of snow.
Timing: Scattered snow does continue for everyone through 9pm. By 11pm the snow exits Indianapolis. By midnight only the eastern few counties have the snow showers…this according to Forecast 8 Futurecast.
Temperatures: Temps are in the 20s. It feels much colder since there is a southeast wind between 5 and 15 mph. Tonight’s lows reach the upper teens.
Sunday: Temperatures will be slightly warmer on Sunday, but still below the average high of 35º. We will be in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Plus the clouds break apart enough for us to see some sunshine and a break from the snow.
Extended forecast: Monday will be the warmest day of the next 8 days with highs in the lower 30s. Big changes move in for Tuesday into Wednesday. Polar air will keep high temps in the lower teens and overnight lows below zero! Another round of snow is expected Tuesday into Wednesday too.
