INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Winter still holding on through the first week of March.
A weak boundary pushing through has been responsible for some light snow showers to develop across portions of central Indiana. It’s certainly cold enough to create some slick spots through the evening commute. Snow should wind down by later this evening, leaving us with partly cloudy to mostly clear conditions and cold temps; although not quite as cold as the past couple of nights.
Should be a relatively quiet day across the area, with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will be a bit warmer, but still well below average for this time of year.
Next system of interest rolls in for the end of the work week. We’ll likely be cold enough to support an all snow event. The bigger question will be the strength and track of the system. Look for a quick hitting system to move in from the northwest Thursday afternoon and evening.
A spread of models range between just below one inch, to as high as 3 inches of snow. With the frigid temperatures that we have been experiencing, look for snow to stick pretty quickly, making for tricky travel Thursday night.
8 day forecast:
A light at the end of the chilly tunnel coming in this weekend. Look for temperatures to warm quickly starting Saturday, as highs boost into the 50s. A potent system pushing through Saturday afternoon will bring the chance for heavy rain and strong winds. A few thunderstorms can’t be ruled out. The wind machine will continue to crank into Sunday. Temperatures fall back a bit, closer to the seasonal average to open up the work week.
