Another cold night; 1 to 3 inches of snow Thursday evening
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Another round of bitter cold is on tap tonight, and snow accumulation is possible by Thursday night.
A wind chill warning will remain in effect for the overnight hours. There will be some overnight, largely the lighter winds. That said, overnight lows will again fall below zero, with windchills in the range of -20 to -30. It’ll be an improvement from Wednesday morning but still awfully cold.
We’ll climb out of the subzero range Thursday afternoon as highs top out in the middle teens. Windchills will hover between zero and 5 during the afternoon.
Snow returns to the forecast just in time for the evening drive. Snow should continue into the overnight hours and wrap up just before the morning commute.
Expect around 1 to 3 inches around and north of Indianapolis, with lighter amounts of less than an inch south of Indy.
Central Indiana may have a light mix of rain and snow, and possibly some freezing rain very early Friday a Thursday night system moves east. Much of Friday should be dry with decreasing clouds and slight warmer temperatures with highs in the middle 20s.
The light at the end of the tunnel will be this weekend. A pretty significant warmup is in store as temperatures move into the 40s and 50s by Sunday.
8 day forecast:
Expect an unsettled pattern for early next week. Look for rain on Monday. Some areas may make a run of 60 with rain showers Monday. Cold air will move in starting Wednesday with another system sparking rain and snow showers.
