Indianapolis began the week with three days of unseasonably warm weather with in the 60s on Sunday and Monday. After a record-setting-start to the week we will see a more active weather pattern through the weekend.
Our weather will take a more seasonal turn as a series of cold front move across the state. The first cold front moved across the state Tuesday and brought a quarter inch of rain and colder temperatures. We will continue to cool down overnight and as we fall below freezing, rain will change to a freezing rain/sleet mix. This will cause icy spots on roads for the Wednesday morning rush hour.
A heavier surge of moisture will move into the state late Wednesday through Thursday and bring less than a .10″ of ice and up to an inch of snow for the Thursday morning rush hour. Snow showers will continue through Friday and we’ll also see a chance for minor snow accumulation on Saturday.
