Despite the sunshine today, highs only reach the upper teens and lower 20s.  These numbers are 20+ degrees too cold for the end of February.

It will be a clear and cold night across central Indiana, with lows in the range of 0 to 5 degrees.  Friday will start with sunshine.  Highs are forecast in the upper 20s and lower 30s.  Clouds arrive late in the day and there is a chance for light snow/light wintry mix Friday night and early Saturday.  The rest of Saturday will be dry, with highs in the upper 30s and lower 40s.  It gets complicated Saturday night.

We're still tracking a potential Winter Storm this weekend.  A prolonged precipitation event is in the forecast from Saturday night through early Monday, but storm track and precipitation types are still uncertain.  We do know where there is all snow, 6″ + are possible.  We do think the snow will mix with sleet and freezing rain especially south of Indianapolis.  The snow totals will be lower, where there is a mix.  Travel will be impacted from Saturday night through Monday.  The best advice to is be prepared for winter weather this weekend and check back for updates. 


We will have updates, as we get the latest information.  Expect changes to the totals and the timing.
