Snow Chances; Cold Only Grows Colder…

Highlights:

  • Frigid times
  • Snow chances return
  • Bitter open to 2018

Serious Cold…Arctic high pressure has settled over the region and combined with our snow cover to produce the coldest morning around these parts in a couple of years.  Some across central Indiana are awaking to double digit below zero readings.  Even the slightest breeze coupled with these bitterly cold readings creates dangerous conditions to spend time outdoors.

Cold is here to stay.  In fact, we’ll only grow more bitter next week.  If we can put snow down between now and then, there’s a good chance we’re not even cold enough early next week with forecast temperatures.  Speaking of snow, we’ll have to keep close tabs on impulses of upper level energy late tonight into Thursday for the potential of overachieving in the snowfall department (similar to what the I-70 corridor experienced Tuesday).  With arctic air in place, it doesn’t take much to get snow going.

We’re still expecting a more widespread snow event over the weekend.  We’re targeting Friday night into Saturday for light snow to overspread the region and this will setup a frigid close to the year and open to 2018.
