Tracking Our Next Winter StormFebruary 2nd, 2014 at 7:06 pm by Pamela Gardner under Colts Forecast, Weather
Right Now: A few flurries are moving through the southeastern parts of Indiana. A winter system is just south of Indiana and will continue to move east tonight. We are dealing with chilly temps in the 20s with some wind chill temps in the teens.
Tonight & Monday: Temps fall to the single digits and lower teens with wind chill values around 0 degrees. Monday, partly cloudy with highs in the 20s for most.
Winter Storm Details: The track of the Tuesday, Wednesday storm is still uncertain with each forecast model run. The snowfall amounts are becoming a little more clear. Although, because the track isn’t certain we could really get a lot of ice with the system if it goes north. Or we could get a heavier snow band in Indianapolis if the system takes a southern track. Based on the latest forecast models, we will get 5″+ of snow in northeastern Indiana, 2″ to 5″ of snow in a narrow band along & south of I-70, 1″ to 2″ of snow and ice south of there. The National Weather Service may issue a winter storm watch later tonight as the latest forecast models come in. Stay tuned to the Forecast 8 team as we continue to tweak the forecast to give you the most accurate numbers as possible.
Extended Forecast: Temps get colder after the winter storm moves through. Highs on Thursday will only be in the mid teens. Overnight lows dip to the single digits. Friday’s highs reach the lower 20s. Next weekend we have another round of winter weather on tap.
