A warm front will drape itself across north-central Indiana today and while this will serve as an ingredient in the hefty northern IN snow event, it’ll allow southerly winds to pull briefly milder air north into central parts of the state this afternoon- middle to upper 40s for many! Further downstate, highs will go north of 50° this afternoon.
Colder air will move into the region this evening as the front settles south and we get back into a north, northeasterly flow. We’ll fall to around freezing shortly after midnight and temperatures are forecast to remain nearly steady or slowly fall Saturday- upper 20s to around 30 by Saturday afternoon.
As colder air seeps back into central Indiana, waves of moisture will continue to push northeast at times through the weekend. While precipitation totals won’t be particularly impressive, it doesn’t take much freezing rain to create issues and we’ll continue to monitor things closely over the weekend.
Periods of light freezing rain and/ or sleet will develop Saturday morning.
Models differ on various solutions, but perhaps the most widespread combination of light freezing rain, sleet, and snow will arrive Saturday evening into the day on Sunday. Stay tuned!
