Freezing rain, sleet, snow possible across central Indiana

Wednesday evening forecast

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — There’s potential for freezing rain, sleet and snow over the next several hours across much of central Indiana.

Much of central Indiana is under a Winter Weather Advisory until 10 a.m. Thursday.

Wednesday night:

An upper level system moves through the area Wednesday evening, sparking widespread precipitation across central Indiana, starting in the early evening.

For much of the I-70 corridor area, this will likely be freezing rain. Road temperatures will be hovering close to or just below freezing, meaning any untreated surfaces could be icy.

Northwestern counties (from Crawfordsville to Marion line and points north) this should be mainly a snow event – accumulations to the tune of 2-3 inches possible there. Ice and snow will gradually wind down later Wednesday night and should be dry heading into the morning commute Thursday. Total ice accumulation should be less than 1/4 inch.

Overnight lows fall to the upper 20s.


Cloudy skies for much of the day. A few scattered snow showers will also be possible heading into the afternoon.

Highs top out in the lower to middle 30s.


Another cloud-filled day with scattered flurries possible. Highs top out in the lower to middle 30s.


Another shot for scattered snow showers to kick off the weekend on Saturday. Some light accumulations could be possible. Sunday should be dry and warmer on Sunday, with highs back into the 40s.

8 day forecast:

Pattern appears to remain active heading into next week, with many ups and downs with temperatures and several chances for precipitation for the first half of the week.
