Sunshine gives way to cloud cover from west to east this afternoon, as the first of several "clipper" systems arrives in Central Indiana.


Enjoy what time we have left in the 40s with temperatures tumbling into the teens by 7am Wednesday.


A cold front will deliver a burst of rain/snow showers this afternoon… arriving around 2pm in western Indiana and 4pm for the Indy metro area.


Colder air from top to bottom allows precipitation this evening to be frozen, with flurries and snow showers erupting in the cold air advection.  Some of the showers may be strong enough to produce localized accumulation and with lows in the teens some slick spots are very possible for the Wednesday morning commute.


A bigger story tomorrow morning will be single digit to near zero wind chills… courtesy of a brisk northwest wind at 10 to 15mph.

A northwest flow aloft serves as a conveyor belt to transport multiple Albert clippers, with varying degrees of intensity.  Timing and location will prove to be challenging between now and Saturday, but a few inches is more than possible by Sunday morning.


Though temperatures climb back into the mid 40s early next week, long range indicators suggest another polar plunge arriving by the end of the month.  Have a great afternoon and thanks for visiting the site – Sean Ash
