Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog: Wet, windy night with drifting on roads a problem

Roads are getting covered up with ice, especially the east to west roads, despite the actual air temp being well above freezing.

INDIANAPOLIS — A stiff wind from the south-southwest boosted temperatures to their warmest levels in a month. 

At this hour, temperatures are 20-25° warmer than Saturday night with readings ranging from near 40° to 45°.

Unfortunately, that same strong wind is causing significant drifting in some counties in north-central Indiana where several accidents/slide-offs have been reported in Cass/Carroll/Clinton/Miami counties.

Rain falling around the metro area could freeze on much colder surfaces, especially sidewalks/side-streets. Wind gusts of 35-40+ mph continue overnight.

Temperatures will be near freezing toward sunrise, which ups the ante of additional slick spots emerging for Monday morning. 

School delays are very possible, especially north-northeast of Indy.

Fog and drizzle linger into Monday midday, but much of this week is highlighted by much of our time above freezing and several days in the upper 40s to near 50°.
