Highs for Sunday will be just as warm in the mid 50s. Then a cold front moves in Monday and temps will fall throughout the day. The rain will change to light snow. As temps hit the 30s on Tuesday we could see some flurries.
A few light showers are found mainly in southeastern Indiana. We keep spotty showers in the forecast all night along with cloudy skies and sprinkles. Temps are feeling great in the 50s in almost all locations. Tonight we stay mild as lows dip into the lower 40s.
Temps are running several degrees colder this morning compared to this time yesterday. The positive thing in the forecast is that we have sunshine and slightly milder temps in the lower 30s later today.
Temps are in the upper 20s and lower 30s this afternoon with mostly sunny skies. It is chilly with a strong westerly wind. We may gain a couple more degrees later this afternoon and the wind will continue to be strong.
Light snow is falling in Indianapolis and steadier snow showers are moving northeast through southeastern Indiana.
Another wave of snow will move through overnight. Most of the snow will stay southeast, but there is a chance for a brief period of steady snow downtown Indy right before the morning commute. Indy drys off by 7am, but southeastern Indiana will still see accumulation. Here is the timing on Forecast 8 Futurecast:
So far, Indy picked up 2.4″ of snow. Areas southeast will continue to see accumulation overnight-giving those places 3″ to 5″ by daybreak Monday.
Indianapolis has picked up 2.4″ of snow. Heavier snow bands are setting up southeast of Indianapolis now. Drier air is moving into northwestern Indiana so the accumulation is done in those places such as Lafayette and Logansport. Light snow is possible overnight with up to an additional inch of snow along I-70 and Indianapolis. 3″ to 5″ of snow is possible through daybreak Monday for southeastern Indiana.
Snow totals so far are anywhere from 1″ to 2″ in most places. A heavier snow band moved through northwestern Indiana and that’s where the higher totals are. The snow bands are shifting south now…expecting more accumulation over Indianapolis and areas southeast tonight.
Snow showers are moving northeast and more snow is on the way overnight.
Right now: Light snow is falling over Indianapolis. A heavier snow band has set up in Crawfordsville, Lafayette, and Kokomo.
Timing: The snow will continue to fall overnight and into daybreak Monday. The heavy accumulation will be done by then, but the morning commute will be slick. Additional snow showers are possible for Monday afternoon but we are not expecting much accumulation.
Totals: We expect 1″ to 3″ of snow for Indy by daybreak Monday. We moved the snow total band a bit to the northwest since there is a heavier snow band that has set up. Most of the forecast remains the same with the heavier 3″ to 5″ in southeastern Indiana. A winter weather advisory continues until 9am Monday. A winter storm warning goes into effect for the southeastern corner of the state 9pm to noon Monday.
Temperatures: Temps are around freezing right now. Tonight’s lows will be in the mid 20s. Highs only reach the upper 20s for Monday. The cold air really creeps in for the start of the week.
Extended Forecast: Highs stay in the 20s for Monday and Tuesday with overnight lows in the low teens. Wind chill temps could be around zero for those nights too. A small warm-up returns for the end of the week.
