Timing: Overnight, our next winter system creeps closer to Indiana. The light snow moves in from the south by 7am Sunday. Light snow continues off and on for everyone by Sunday afternoon into the evening. According to forecast 8 Futurecast, temps warm to the freezing mark in southern Indiana by 7pm. A wintry mix and freezing rain will stick around in southern Indiana through 11pm. The system moves out by daybreak Monday.
Accumulation: Snowfall accumulation will be a dusting up to a half an inch. Icing due to freezing rain and drizzle will be possible in the southeastern corner of the state by daybreak Monday. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for that southeastern corner from 6am Sunday to 4am Monday.
Temperatures: Temps are in the lower 20s and upper teens. With a light breeze it feels like the lower teens for a lot of places. Temps bottom out in the lower teens and single-digits, but temps slowly rise after midnight. Temps reach the lower 30s late Sunday. That will be a huge factor in our next winter system.

The snowfall to the south will still add another 2″ to 5″ of additional accumulation through tonight. The snow ends slowly from north to south tonight. The clearing skies return by daybreak Saturday. Bitter cold takes over.
Temperatures are in the 20s now. Tonight’s lows dip into the lower teens and in the single digits for some, especially to the north of Indianapolis. Highs for Saturday only reach the lower 20s, but at least we will have sunshine. Temps increase just a bit for Sunday reaching the lower 30s.
Our next wave of winter weather moves in Sunday through Monday morning. A wintry mix is possible first, then as temps fall some minor snow accumulation takes over by Monday morning. Stay tuned for further updates from the Forecast 8 Team.
