Updated Christmas Eve snow forecast and look at temperatures for Christmas

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

Good morning! Portions of central Indiana have already had a little snow this morning, enough to cover the ground. This has been captured well from our weather cameras in Westfield and Fishers.  Images were captured around 9 am.

SNOW FORECAST

I’ve just updated the snow forecast for snow accumulation through tonight. Looking at most of central Indiana having at least 1″ of snow.

Highest totals in north-central Indiana where 3″ to 5″ (isolated 6″) look possible. Areas near Kokomo could receive 4″ to 5.5″.  Further south, there should be a band of 2″ to 4″ with Indianapolis getting around 2″.  Roughly south of I-70 1″ to 2″ of snow is expected.

While not much snow is falling this morning, snow should begin to pick-up in intensity around noon and continue through early evening.

COLD CHRISTMAS

If you have plans to travel this evening or early Christmas morning, be sure to throw a blanket in your car.

Temperatures are going to drop after 4pm and winds are going to increase. As temperatures fall in to the teens, winds will be gusting 20-30 mph creating wind chills in the single digits to near 0. Plan on a cold Christmas day with highs only in the 20’s.
