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.
Light snow showers continue to fall across central Indiana. As you head to any viewing parties or downtown for the Colts and Patriots game, take your time. The light snow is starting to accumulate on grassy areas for now. By the time the game wraps up we could have 1″ to 2″ of snow already on the ground. This could make your drive home difficult. We have a winter weather advisory in effect through daybreak Monday.
The light snow showers are starting to give us light accumulation. Although, the roads are still too warm at this point to get accumulation on them. Our temperatures have been above freezing all day, but now will start to fall. Overnight the light snow continues and by daybreak Monday it will move out. We expect 1″ to 3″ of accumulation by 7 am Monday.
Light snow is moving northeast across central Indiana. The accumulation has begun north of Indianapolis. The snow will spread into southern Indiana through this evening. Overnight is really when we receive the most accumulation. Temps are around the freezing mark, so the snow will be wet and heavy.
A winter weather advisory goes into effect for central Indiana from 5pm to 9am Monday. A winter storm warning is in effect for the southeastern Indiana from 9pm to noon Monday.
Our snow potential map is still on track…we expect 1″ to 3″ of snow for Indy. Lesser amounts to the northwest and higher totals to the southeast.
Light snow showers and flurries will move through tonight. Light snow is falling in Bloomington, Lafayette, and Bedford. By daybreak Sunday, we could have a dusting or up to 1 inch of snow accumulation.
Sunday night into Monday morning there is winter weather advisory in effect for southeastern Indiana. We could see 1″ to 3″ of snowfall in Indy, with higher amounts to the southeast.
We will be dealing with light snow Sunday night for the Colts vs. Patriots game. Kickoff time is 8:30pm and the snow will start to slowly accumulate. There is a Winter Weather Advisory during the game, so be careful on the roads!
We have two rounds of snow this weekend. One round is overnight tonight. The second is Sunday night.
Timing: Round one will move in after 11pm tonight and into daybreak Sunday. On Forecast 8 Storm Tracker, the snow is heading our way. There is a lot of dry air at the surface so the snow is evaporating before hitting the ground. It will be tough to get accumulation out of this until late overnight. The second round will start up late Sunday afternoon. By Sunday evening the snow will start to accumulate. Light to moderate snow continues through Monday morning. The rush hour Monday morning will be a tricky one.
Accumulation: Tonight’s light snow may amount to a dusting, up to an inch by Sunday morning. We may get 1″ to 3″ of snowfall by Monday morning from the second round of snow. Expecting lesser amounts to the northwest. Higher totals possible in southeastern Indiana (3″ or 4″). The forecast models are spitting out 2″ to 3″ of snow for Indy, but the precipitation will be around the freezing mark for a while when it starts, so it will be tough to get the higher snow totals. So we are expecting 1″ to 3″ for most.
Advisories: A Winter Weather Advisory goes into effect for the southeastern counties in central Indiana from 7pm Sunday to 9am Monday.
Temperatures: Temps are in the 30s with wind chill temps in the 20s. Tonight’s lows dip into the mid 20s. Sunday’s highs will be slightly warmer and we could see a brief wintry mix before it changes to all snow Sunday evening.
Extended Forecast: Colder air funnels in for Monday through Tuesday. Temps slowly warm through the end of the work week and by the weekend our highs will be in the 40s.
A winter weather advisory will go into effect for Indianapolis and other southern counties from 7pm Sunday to 9am Monday. We expect 1″ to 3″ of snow to fall in that time frame. Stay tuned to WISH-TV for further updates.
