INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It will be a nice end to the weekend before our chance for the first accumulating snow of the season with near record-breaking cold settles in.
Sunday will start off with a mix of sun and clouds, with clouds gradually increasing through the afternoon. A nice pull from the southwest will bring in some milder conditions across the area, with highs topping out in the middle and upper 50s, very close to the seasonal average.
Conditions will be mostly quiet under a cloudy sky. Wouldn’t rule out a few light rain showers as we approach daybreak. Lows will dip to the upper 30s to around 40°
A powerhouse cold front will push through the state, sparking widespread rain showers for the morning, and as temperatures cool throughout the mid/late morning, we’ll see a mix of rain and snow, and eventually a full transition to all snow. The highest impact will be for the afternoon commute, as steady snow will likely be falling, and some accumulation may be occurring, making for some slick/slopping conditions.
There will be total accumulation of around 1″-2″ – especially for the northern half of central Indiana, and mostly on grassy and elevated surfaces.
Bitter cold will wrap in as the snow moves out Monday evening. Overnight lows will fall to the teens, with wind chills hovering close to 0° Tuesday morning.
Cold temperatures will hang around for the first half of the work week. Our numbers should moderate just a bit for the back half of the week into the weekend, as highs move back to the 40s starting Thursday. Quiet weather is expected for the next several days after Monday.
