The first widespread accumulating snow this season is set to move in this evening. While it will have impacts on our roads, know that this will not be a major snow system.

We keep clouds around through the day with a stray spritz of rain possible as temperatures climb into the lower 40s.

Snow showers will begin to move in from 5-7pm on the western side of the state from Terre Haute to Crawfordsville as temperatures fall through the 30s.

The snow will fill-in across the northern tier of the state through the evening. Scattered snow showers will be possible south of I-70 as well but not as widespread. This will limit the overall snow potential for areas south of Indianapolis to 0.5" or less while areas north will see around 1" with isolated spots picking up a of couple inches.

The snow is associated with a cold front and it will be through the state in the early morning hours on Tuesday, thus the snow tapering off between 12am-2am.

Watch for areas of reduced visibility in snow bursts and for slick untreated roadways, especially bridges and overpasses.

The sky clears through the day tomorrow but it will be much colder with highs only near 34. Temps drop into the upper teens for overnight lows Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

Wednesday will be a bright but cold day with highs in the upper 30s.

We're already monitoring another wintry system set to bring in rain then a rain/snow mix starting Thursday morning into the evening. Minor accumulations will be possible. - Lindsey Monroe
