A winter storm watch has been issued for central Indiana from late Saturday through early Monday.  This is a watch because the storm is more than 24 hours away.  This watch will be upgraded to a warning as the storm gets closer.

Your Friday night will be dry, with increasing clouds and temperatures in the 20s.  There is a chance for a light snow or light wintry mix late Friday night and early Saturday.  Any accumulations will be less than an inch.  The daylight hours on Saturday will be dry, with a mix of clouds and sun.  Highs will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

We are tracking a complex winter storm for the end of the weekend.  That storm will arrive late Saturday night.  Snow and sleet will develop Saturday night and last through Sunday morning.  There could be a brief break from the wintry mix before heavy snow begins to fall Sunday afternoon. 

The snow will fall until Monday morning, with 6-10 inches of snow possible for much of central Indiana.  Where there is more of a mix, the snow totals will be lower.  We are tracking this storm closely and there will be updates to snow and ice potential this weekend, so stay tuned.

The Monday morning commute will be impacted.
