Brief warm up today before another arctic invasion
Dry air saved Indianapolis from seeing much snow this morning, with 2″ to 4″ for north central Indiana. The latest clipper system will race eastward and allow for some sun breaks later today.
A strong southwest wind will gust over 30mph to cause blowing/drifting snow heading into the afternoon. The warm nose of air also pushes temperatures "briefly" into the upper 30s this afternoon. The warm up is Fool's Gold, with another Arctic front blasting into Central Indiana late evening…causing snow and snow squalls to erupt before midnight.
The combination of another 1″-2″+ of snow tonight, and temperatures near zero Monday morning, leads to what we believe will be extremely dangerous roads come this time Monday.
Wind chills tomorrow will be in the 25 to 30 below range and drop to 35 to 45 below Tuesday morning. School delays and closures look very likely to start the week.
