Freezing rain (initially may be mixed with sleet) overspreads central Indiana between 1p-3p. We advise to get any and all travel done prior to 1p and plan to stay in place tonight as roadways will deteriorate rapidly. Additionally, we recommend charging your cell phones, tablets, etc. this morning in the event we lose power.
Freezing rain will continue to impact central Indiana into the overnight and accumulate to 0.25″, or more, particularly along the I-70 corridor. A quarter inch, or more, of freezing rain is considered damaging and can lead to power outages and downed tree limbs.
As we progress into Monday morning, freezing rain will transition to snow (north to south). It’s possible anywhere from a few inches of snow falls north-central Indiana to a coating south of I-70.
This graphic still sums up our thoughts from a precipitation-type perspective.
The NWS has upgraded what was initially a Winter Weather Advisory across the greater Indianapolis region to an Ice Storm Warning. Additionally, they’ve expanded the Winter Weather Advisory north.
MUCH colder air will ooze into central Indiana Monday and eventually send temperatures into the single digits Tuesday morning and around, or below, zero Wednesday morning.
