Rain, snow showers on the way to central Indiana this weekend
With the mainly dry weather we have had this week flood waters continue to recede across the state. There is still some minor flooding and Flood Warnings continue for the East Fork White River, the White River and the Wabash River. Now another wave of moisture is on the way and water levels may rise again through the weekend.
A Winter Weather Advisory will be in effect, mainly north of I-70, from Friday at 7 p.m. through Saturday at 7 p.m. We’ll see a rain/snow mix develop Friday night. Our mix will change to rain Saturday as we warm into the 40s. Temperatures will fall late Saturday afternoon, so we’ll see another wintry mix before the precipitation ends. Colder air will stay with us for Sunday and Monday, and scattered flurries will continue on both days.
