With the exception of light lake effect snow showers today (noticing a couple of light bands just west of the city as we write this Saturday morning around 10a), most of today and Sunday will be dry and cold. We’ll top out around 20° today and Sunday with low temperatures tonight dropping into the 0° to 5° range.
Our next snow maker will arrive late Sunday night into Monday morning in the form of a clipper system.
We expect light snow Monday morning to grow in overall coverage and intensity through the late morning and into the early afternoon hours.
Accumulating snow will push off to the south Monday evening.
This will be a plowable event for central Indiana and we’ll also have to deal with blowing and drifting concerns Monday afternoon through Monday night as strong and gusty northwest winds arrive. Needless to say, to our snow removal and DPW crews out there, find a way to get some rest this afternoon and Sunday before another busy stretch to open the work week. We think additional snowfall of 2″ to 4″ is a good bet across the northern half of the state, with slightly lighter amounts of 1″ to 2″ across southern Indiana.
Arctic high pressure will settle over a growing snowpack to help setup a frigid stretch through early and mid week. Multiple nights with below zero readings are expected beginning Tuesday morning where most will wake up to readings of 3° to 8° below zero (not counting the wind chill).
