Snow flurries possible overnight

At 6pm, temperatures are holding steady in the lower 30°s across central Indiana.  There should be just enough moisture passing through the lower levels of the atmosphere to allow a few drops of water to fall.  However, they won’t fall as rain, but instead a few ice pellets and/or snow flurries will be possible.

Our latest high-resolution computer model (shown above) suggests snow flurries and/or a snow shower possible between 10pm and midnight.  I think we could see a few passing flurries/snow showers during the day Friday as temperatures remain cold – in the upper 20°s and lower 30°s.

Winds will be on the increase Friday, initially out of the west shifting to the west-southwest, 12-20mph.  This will create a wind chill in the lower 20°s at times.


We remain on the hunt for cold air.  While colder air has spilled down the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains and in to the north-central United States, the bulk of the true arctic air remains locked in northern Canada.

At 5pm ET Thursday, temperatures were -30° and lower near the Arctic Circle.  At some point this winter, something should come along and break the air loose, however I don’t see any signs of that in the next week.
