MONDAY: A bitter blast of air comes into the state starting Monday. If you’re an early morning commuter you may miss out on the precipitation. A rain/snow mix arrives by the tail end of the rush hour and will eventually change over to all snow by lunch. Accumulations look like we’ll see up to an inch on grassy surfaces. Some areas north of Indianapolis may see a little bit more. Winds pick up out of the north and may gust up to 20 m.p.h. at times.
