Burst of snow arrives in central Indiana this afternoon

Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

The third installment of clipper snow quickly arrives from the northwest this afternoon.  Though accumulations should remain under an inch, the timing and sub-freezing temperatures may make roads slick for the ride home from work.

Clouds will clear for a period of time tonight in the wake of this latest clipper.  Without a blanket of gray overhead, temperatures quickly drop, with much colder lows in the single digits and lower teens Wednesday morning.  Areas of freezing fog are possible tonight and we can't rule out a slick morning commute Wednesday.

Tomorrow will be our brightest day of the week.  Enjoy what sunshine you see Wednesday.  A quick return of warmer air aloft riding over our snow pack will create very dense fog Thursday into Friday, with "potential" for a prolonged stretch of near-zero visibility.

It's looking like Indiana will be the battle ground of Gulf of Mexico warmth and Arctic cold.  Despite the chatter you're hearing on social media, this is trending toward a heavy rain/warmer solution for Central Indiana.  

We'll likely be counting inches of RAIN and not snow.  Flooding becomes a concern due to snowmelt and heavy rainfall.  Though there may be a period of rain changing over to snow Sunday evening, the highest chance of accumulation looks to be across the Michiana border.  Still subject to change this far out.  Please check back for updates and the latest on holiday travel implications.

The warm up and heavy rain really puts a snafu on White Christmas dreams locally.  Unless something changes between now and next week, our yards will be muddy for Santa.  But there's always hope!
