A winter storm is going to arrive in central Indiana by the early morning hours on Sunday and will last through Monday as well. A Winter Storm Watch will go into effect by 8 am Sunday until Monday at 12 pm. This system will bring heavy, wet snow and large accumulations along Interstate 70. By 7 am Monday, areas shaded in pink will have snow totals between 6” to 10” and 3” to 6” for areas shaded in blue (expecting more rain to mix in, therefore lesser totals). Winds will get stronger overnight Sunday and into Monday morning, making blowing and drifting snow a possible hazard as well as power outages. Stay tuned for further updates from the Forecast 8 team on this winter storm.
Temps now are staying in the mid to upper 30s across central Indiana and temps will continue to fall into the mid to upper 20s overnight. A low of 28 degrees is expected for Indianapolis, with cloud cover increasing during the overnight hours. The cloud cover will carry into Saturday with mostly cloudy skies across the Hoosier state. Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 40s, making it our last dry and warm day before the winter storm arrives. Enjoy the start to your weekend because big changes will arrive by Sunday morning.

Indianapolis has snow…Martinsville has sleet…Bloomington has rain. Terre Haute had snow just an hour ago, and is now reporting rain. As the precipitation moves north, temperatures will warm enough that central Indiana will get rain overnight. However, northern Indiana (Lafayette to Kokomo) has a chance for freezing rain for early Monday morning.
