In the wake of the latest winter weather event, Central Indiana is gearing up for one of the coldest nights in nearly a year. Underneath a clearing sky, lighter wind, and with fresh snow... low temperatures Monday morning range from -15 (in deepest snow pack) to near zero.

Though wind will be lighter than 24 hours ago...it makes those low temperatures feel as cold as -20° or colder at times. So a Wind Chill Advisory remains in effect for most of the region until noon Monday.

Monday remains partly cloudy but unseasonably cold with "highs" in the teens. That's colder than the average "low" of 20° for this time of year.

The bitter cold modifies significantly Tuesday courtesy of stiff southwest wind. High temperatures gradually lift to near 40° by late that day but gusts near 40+ mph too. Rain overspreads Central Indiana Tuesday evening and changes to snow as colder air returns Wednesday.

Morning highs near 40° Wednesday drop into the 20s Wednesday afternoon and possibly lead to slick spots by Thursday morning.

Another shot of Arctic air hits Thursday night into Friday with single digit lows Friday morning and "highs" in the low teens. We'll need to monitor the late week pattern for possible clipper system snow - Sean Ash
