Halloween brings a trace of snow to Indianapolis, measurable snow in northern Indiana
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — For only the eighth time on record, Indianapolis picked up a trace of snow on Halloween. Weather records on Halloween stretch back all the way to 1884.
In terms of measurable snowfall, there have been only two Halloweens that have had it in Indianapolis in addition to the eight other years that have had a trace of snow. Those years were 2014 and 1890, which both had one-tenth of an inch of snow.
On the northeast side on Halloween night, a quick burst of snow left some white stuff behind that could qualify as measurable snow. Here is a picture taken in Fishers this morning by News 8 engineer Gary Gallinger:
Some locations in northern Indiana did indeed pick up measurable snow this Halloween. Snow was very evident on our INDOT traffic cameras this morning to start off November. South Bend reported 1.4″ of snow, which is the second-snowiest Halloween on record.
If you are sick of the snow flurries, then we have good news in our next 8-day forecast. Temperatures will steadily climb over the next few days and central Indiana will be back in the 60s by the weekend. You can find more about our forecast here.
