Dry Air = Less Ice - SkyTrak13 Weather Blog 1/13/17
The threat for ice will continue this weekend, but accumulations will be inconvenient but not devastating. Inconvenient means there will be some ice covered roads, parking lots and sidewalks. It also means it may take you a little longer to get where you are going. The devastating part of the storm system will be to our west across Missouri, Oklahoma and Kansas.
There is enough dry air over central Indiana that it is limiting the development of freezing rain. By late evening Friday, there was freezing rain and drizzle from just south of Indianapolis to Bloomington and Columbus. The lower atmosphere is forecast to saturate enough overnight and early Saturday for freezing rain. Here is the timeline with FutureTrak13.
It is a good idea to check weather and road conditions this weekend. Temperatures are forecast to rise above freezing Saturday afternoon. There is still a chance for another round later in the weekend, but right now it is forecast to be slower. If that timing verifies, it will be mainly rain for the end of the weekend. The SkyTrak13 Weather Team will keep you updated all weekend.
