Cold afternoon, analyzing this weekend’s winter stormFebruary 27th, 2014 at 2:23 pm by Robb Ellis under Weather
It’s hard to ignore the cold air that’s been in place, but if you need a diversion, the approaching winter system for this weekend is a start.
Cold temperatures this afternoon will continue, and most locations will stay in the 10s and low 20s for the afternoon and drop into the single-digits overnight.
Skies will remain mostly clear and strong northwest winds will continue.
What We’re Watching: Two systems arrive this weekendSystem 1:
A Weaker system, bringing less than an inch of snow Friday night into Saturday morning.
This system is a much more potent system bringing lots of moisture to central Indiana. However, questions still surround exactly what type of precipitation we’ll see. Snow looks a solid bet for most of the northern half of Indiana, but a little sleet may mix in at times, cutting into snow accumulations.
The southern half of Indiana is a tougher forecast. A wintry mix of sleet, snow, and freezing rain could be possible, with at least some accumulation of snow at the end of the forecast. The exact timing of the temperature elements of this forecast will determine how much of each type we’ll see.
