Going For A Record TonightFebruary 15th, 2014 at 6:40 pm by Pamela Gardner under Colts Forecast, Weather
Another clipper system is on our doorstep. Indianapolis now ranks second for snowiest winters ever (December, January to February) with 50.5″ of snow. The record to beat is 51″ of snow set in 1981-82.
The snow is just starting to move into western Indiana, but there are no reports of it hitting the ground. The air saturates this evening, allowing for the snow to reach the ground over the next hour.
The snow showers arrive in Indy by 11pm and will accumulate overnight through daybreak Sunday. We expect 1″ to 2″ of snow by the morning.
Temperatures are in the upper teens and lower 20s with colder wind chill temps. Tonight’s lows dip into the teens. Sunday’s high temps get a bit warmer in the upper 20s and lower 30s.
Warming temperatures will help to melt the snow this week. Monday we have a round of a wintry mix, then another rain chance for next Thursday. Most of the week will be dry with temps in the 40s and around the 50 degree mark. There is a concern for river flooding later this week, but there is still some uncertainty with how serious it will be at this point.
