WISH Weather Earth Design

Heavy rain continues to fall in the southern half of the Hoosier state. Some minor flooding could occur, especially with melting occurring as temperatures are still above freezing.

Overnight colder air will slide through central Indiana, beginning a transition to snow by morning from north to south. Some sleet or freezing rain may mix in as well.

Snowfall Forecast Robb 2

Some light accumulation could be possible in the morning, but less than an inch is expected. Some isolated spots could pick up more.

Road treatment has likely been washed away by the day’s rain, so refreezing of roads, bridges and overpasses remains a big concern, along with the additional precipitation.
