A mix of rain and snow along with frigid temperatures will be moving through Indiana for at least the next few days.
The National Weather Service in Indianapolis says a winter weather system will arrive Thursday afternoon.
“Precipitation should start as rainfall. There might be a little mix of precipitation in the early parts. We might see a few scattered snow showers overnight after the cold front passes through, but we’re not looking at any kind of accumulations,” said Aaron Updike, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “We’re also expecting pretty windy conditions Thursday. They could gust as high as 40 mph at times.”
Updike projects that Indiana will have the coldest temperatures of the season so far.
“That’s especially the case for Sunday. Sunday’s high temperatures may only reach the teens. Our wind chill values will be running 5-10 degrees below the actual values,” said Updike.
That means it will likely feel as if it is below zero at times even if the temperature is above zero.
“We’re tracking another snow system coming in Saturday night, maybe in the one to two-inch range,” said Updike. “It should be that light, fluffy snow. It won’t be like the snow from last weekend when it was really dense and heavy. We are tracking another system early next week. It’s hard to say how much we’ll get this far out, but it does look like the potential for much more significant snow values.”
Updike expects the cold weather to continue for the next few weeks.
