WISH Weather Earth Design

Light snow is showing up on radar across central Indiana, but dry air near the surface is keeping much of this from reaching the ground.

Some light snow was reported in Monticello and Lafayette. The atmosphere is expected to saturate over the next few hours, and some light snow will begin to accumulate.

Snowfall Forecast Robb

Snowfall totals will likely be less than an inch, except northwest of Indy, near Lafayette to Kokomo where amounts could top 1 inch.


Snow Returns

February 25th, 2015 at 5:07 pm by under Weather

Temperatures made it just above the freezing point in Indy. We had a lot of sun to start the day but clouds will be on the increase through tonight. A clipper system will move in with snow arriving by the morning. Skies will clear late Thursday night into Friday. We’ll have sun returning for the end of the work week as high pressure builds in. It will be very cold with highs only in the mid teens Friday.

Plenty of Sun Today, Snow Thursday

February 25th, 2015 at 11:18 am by under Weather

Mostly sunny skies today with highs in the 20s and 30s. We’ll have increasing clouds this evening as a clipper approaches from the northwest. It will bring snow across central Indiana overnight and Thursday. Most areas south of Indy will see less than an inch. Indy will see half and inch to an inch. While the amounts will be low, the timing of the snow will be the issue. The morning drive could be tricky as the bulk of the snow will fall in the morning.

Plenty of blue skies and sunshine have pushed temperatures into the low 20s for many central Indiana locations. Breezy conditions are adding a bit of wind chill, but the winds are actually helping the warming process slightly.
