Blast of below-zero air hits Indiana; Sunday highs will be in the teens

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Snow has come to an end for the state with frigid air settling in Friday morning and through the afternoon.

Temperatures starting off this morning from 5 below zero to 8 below zero.

Winds will be very gusty Friday morning and drag down feel-like temperatures to 30 below zero to 35 below zero.

Lots of clouds will stick around through the day, and highs will only warm to the lower single digits. Feel-like temperatures will remain from 20 below zero to 35 below zero. We could see a stray snow shower later Friday evening, especially farther north. Lows on Friday night will fall to 1 below zero.

Expect a frigid start to Saturday morning with temperatures below zero and feel-like temperatures from 20 below zero to 30 below zero. Highs will remain very cold with most spots in the upper single digits. We could also see a stray snow shower, but most of the state will remain dry with lots of clouds. On Sunday, Christmas Day, highs will climb to 12 with a few more rays of sunshine.

We begin to thaw out next week with highs on Monday in the lower 20s with a snow chance. It will gets even better midweek with highs in 40s with some sunshine. Late in the week, we’ll introduce our next chance of showers with highs in the lower 50s.
