Snow & Cold Continues Today

Published:

Flurries are starting to fall across portions of Central Indiana.

Scattered snow showers will become more widespread after midday with even a few snow squalls possible.

Temperatures today will hold steady in the mid to upper 30s this afternoon.

Snow squalls are brief heavy pockets or bands of snow that reduce visibility with the help of gusty winds. This could create short-term white out conditions across Central Indiana this afternoon and evening. Significant snowfall isn't expected with these snow squalls, but some areas will quickly see a coating to locally up to 1" (especially across the northeast portion of the state).

We'll keep partly cloudy skies around overnight with a few flurries, especially lake effect snow showers across the northern half of the state.

High pressure builds in for Wednesday afternoon making way for a little sunshine and temperatures rebounding to the lower 40s.

Thursday will be one of the better days in the extended forecast with lots of sunshine and mild temperatures as highs rebound to the upper 40s.

The forecast for Friday into the weekend has been tricky with a boundary setting up very close to Central Indiana. When it once appeared we'd be in the warm sector, it looks like the boundary now sets up south of us preventing a big time warming trend that once looked possible. A few rain showers will be possible south Friday afternoon with a wintry mix possible to start the day Saturday. Any lingering moisture will change over to rain in the afternoon.
