Snow and bitter cold return this week
Nice to see some sunshine across Central Indiana for a change. A stiff southwesterly wind pushed highs into the lower 30s, but also made it "feel" more like the mid-teens. The wind stays steady overnight and aids in keeping temperatures mostly steady…with lows in the mid to upper 20s. Monday begins with sunshine but finishes with clouds and a new batch of snow.
Our next clipper system delivers the first flakes by 11pm Monday evening, and snow will become likely prior to the Tuesday morning commute. 1″ to 3″ is possible for the viewing area and with Tuesday morning temps in the mid-teens we should begin planning on a rough commute.
This latest round of snow also marks a return of sharply colder air… with Arctic lows at or below zero range expected Wednesday into Friday mornings. Wind chills at times will be in the dangerous -10 to -25 range. Buckle up for a harsh week.
Long range indicators suggest a secondary Arctic surge arriving next Sunday… accompanied by accumulating snow potential and "possibly" the coldest high temperatures of the winter January 27-28th. That's a long way out, but we're monitoring closely this week. Have a great evening
