Light snow Saturday night, bitter cold next week

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A little light snow moves through central Indiana Saturday night.

If you’re out Saturday evening, look for a few slick spots and temperatures in the 20s. 

The snow comes to an end shortly after midnight.  

Many locations will pick up around an inch of accumulation while some areas north of Interstate 70 may pick up 1.5-2 inches. 

Lows Saturday night will fall into the teens with some areas in the southern part of the state staying in the lower 20s. 

Sunday morning will start out cold but dry. We’ll see some peeks of sun for the afternoon with highs in the upper 20s. Not really a bad day with some sunshine, but still a little below normal. 

Clouds begin to increase late Sunday night ahead of our next storm system.

Monday rain will be possible with a change over to snow once colder air moves into the area. It’s going to be breezy with highs close to 40. 

Once the storm system exits, a bitter blast of arctic air moves into the Great Lakes.  

Morning lows will be below zero and highs will stay in the single digits for much of Wednesday. 

We have the potential to break a couple of records: One that’s in jeopardy is the minimum high temperature or “coldest high temperature” Wednesday. Highs on Wednesday will be around 4 degrees; the record “coldest high” was set in 2004 at 7 degrees.  

It will stay cold for a few more days before we begin to warm back up for the weekend.
