RIGHT NOW: Temps are in the upper teens to lower 20s, with wind chill values in the low to mid teens in most places.
REST OF TODAY: Highs should only climb a few more degrees as colder air is right on out doorstep.
BITTER COLD TONIGHT / THURSDAY MORNING: Lows will drop down to near or even below zero. There will be a 5-15 miles per hour wind, so wind chill values could get as low as -15°. That amount of cold could hang on until Noon.

Temps are barely in the 20s across central Indiana and wind chill values are in the single digits! At least we have sunshine!

RIGHT NOW: The bursts of snow showers will quickly move out of Indiana in the next 1-2 hours. The airport in Indianapolis measured just under 1/2″ of snow. Some locations in southern parts of our area saw 1″-2″ of snow.
REST OF TODAY: Cold air will continue to pour in during the course of the morning and the afternoon. Highs will only make it to the mid 20s.
THIS EVENING: It will be bitter cold this evening. Temps will fall into the teens.
OVERNIGHT: Lows will drop into the low to mid teens overnight.
8-DAY FORECAST: Temps will stay cold through Thursday. Somewhat milder air tries to move in by Friday, but another wintry weather system will arrive late Friday into Saturday. There is a chance of seeing accumulating snow. It is too early to put a number on the forecast.

RIGHT NOW: We have seen some flurries and a few snow showers fire up just ahead of a line of colder air moving into the region. There may be a dusting in some places, but most places will be OK.
MORE SNOW SHOWERS TONIGHT? There will be an upper-level pocket of energy swing through the southern half of the state overnight tonight. This looks like it will fire off several rounds of snow showers. No major accumulations are expected, and again, as of now, most of the accumulation looks to be south of I-70.

TODAY: The freezing drizzle has moved out of the area, as a cold front passes through the state. Colder air will gradually build in behind the system, and highs today will stay in the mid to upper 20s.
THIS EVENING: Temps will fall into the low 20s and some upper teens. A quick-moving disturbance will slide into southern Indiana, so there may be some snow showers in southern Indiana around midnight.
OVERNIGHT: The may be snow showers south of Indianapolis overnight. Any accumulation should be under an inch. Lows will drop into the low to mid teens.
TUESDAY: After some morning flurries, it should be a quiet and cold day. Highs will only reach the mid 20s.
8-DAY FORECAST: Cold air will linger through Thursday. Lows Thursday morning will drop into the low single digits! Milder air returns for the weekend, but there could be a wintry mix or light snow Saturday. Highs will stay in the 30s through early next week.

SUMMARY: This should not be a big winter weather system. I will keep the forecast for the rest of today the same. Expect some scattered snow showers through early afternoon, then some pockets of light freezing drizzle later this afternoon and evening could mix with a few snow showers as warmer air in the higher levels of the atmosphere sneaks in. Eastern and SE Indiana could see some light snow, then a mix of light freezing rain and/or drizzle. They still have a Winter Weather Advisory today and tonight. Most precipitation chances will end shortly after midnight.
ANY ICE? There may be some light freezing drizzle for central Indiana later this afternoon and evening. No significant ice accumulations are expected here, but untreated roads could have a light glaze. Just be careful if you are heading out later today, just in case.
SNOW TOTALS: Very little if any accumulation of snow for most locations. Places that do see any snow, should be under 1″ SE Indiana (near Cincinnati) could see 1″ to 2″ at worst.
We will continue to track the weather today and tonight.

Use extreme caution if you are driving down to Cincinnati to see the Colts game. There will be scattered snow showers, mixing with some sleet and maybe freezing rain which could make roads very slick. Temps will start in the low 30s, then climb into the mid 30s during the game.

OVERVIEW: This system will not be as potent as Friday’s system, however, we could see some very light snow, and maybe some freezing drizzle mixing in late this afternoon and this evening. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for extreme eastern and southeastern parts of our area until 4am Monday.
TODAY: We are seeing scattered flurries and a few snow showers. They will continue to race North. There may be a dusting or several tenths of an inch in locations. Scattered snow showers will continue through the afternoon. As warmer air continues to lift up from the north, we could see some freezing drizzle mix in with some of the flurries and snow showers. SE Indiana could see some sleet and freezing rain (this is why they have the advisory in those locations.) Temps will climb into the mid to upper 20s by late afternoon.
THIS EVENING: Scattered mix of light snow and freezing drizzle will continue. Activity should wind down after midnight. Snow totals in most places should be 1″ or less. There may be 1″-2″ snow totals in SE Indiana. There may also be some ice accumulations in SE Indiana as well.
OVERNIGHT: Lows will only drop into the mid 20s and precip should move out.
MONDAY: It should be a quiet day, with highs in the upper 20s.
8-DAY FORECAST: Temps will stay chilly for most of the work week. There could be a few flurries Tuesday, otherwise the next chance of a wintry mix could happen next Saturday.

Here is a breakdown of the winter weather system arriving Sunday. This will be a much weaker system than Friday’s, but ice could be a big threat.
SUNDAY MORNING: A surge of milder air (relatively speaking) will move in from the south. Along that line, scattered snow showers will develop in the morning and quickly move north. These should be light and produce minor accumulations. Temps will climb into the 20s during the morning.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON: Warmer air will continue to move into the state. The air near the ground will still be below freezing. There will be a mix of very light snow showers combined with some freezing drizzle / sleet, could make roads slick. Again, snowfall will not be heavy, it will be the freezing drizzle that could cause the biggest problems. Meanwhile, in Cincinnati, freezing rain will mix with sleet and snow, which will be uncomfortable for the game, and making roads slick for those traveling to the game.
SUNDAY EVENING / NIGHT: More of the same. There will be a light wintry mix possible in the evening. All activity looks to end just after midnight, or by 2am. Snow totals should be 1″ or less in most places, but the thin layer of ice could be the biggest problem.

If you are planning to travel to Cincinnati to see the Colts, use extreme caution! There will be a wintry mix developing during the course of the day. Some of that precip could be freezing rain, which could coat roads with ice. The 1pm game itself will have a wintry mix with temps in the mid 30s.
