Sunday evening snow update - 13 WTHR Indianapolis

Sunday evening snow update

Updated:

The National Weather Service has cancelled the Winter Storm Warning.  Expect slick roads overnight even where it's stopped snowing many hours ago.  This is due to temperatures well below freezing and lows drop into the single digits Monday morning.

A steady north-northeast wind will push wind chills into the -10 to -20 range.  Temperatures Monday will be a good 20 to 25 below normal, with highs struggling to hit 20 degrees in many backyards.

We'll drop back down into the single digits Tuesday morning and stay unseasonably cold until a gradual climb into the 40s later this week.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out snowfall totals fell well short of our "initial" forecast of 6-10″ for the I-70 corridor.  Adjustments were made in subsequent forecasts to take into consideration a more southern solution in storm track and colder/drier air farther south too.  But even the last call this morning of 3-6″ fell short of the mark.  This essentially proved to be a 2″ to 4″ forecast with an "official" total of 2.4″ at the National Weather Service in Indianapolis… a record this date.

That pushes the "snow year" total to 54.7″ and just 3.6″ shy of breaking the record of 1981-82.

No major storms are in the 7 day forecast, but there is a chance of a wintry mix returning Sunday.

Have a great week – Sean Ash
