After some afternoon snow showers and isolated freezing rain reports, the overnight hours will remain overcast with near steady temperatures until 2 AM. After that, temperatures will start to slowly rise into Sunday, but don’t expect much of a climb.
We will continue to see a chance of flurries or freezing drizzle overnight. The upper level low that started the snow showers is still helping lift the atmosphere across our state but it looks like the most active snow showers passed through the state this afternoon. Any of our remain activity will be more spotty and short-lived. Here’s a snapshot of Fox Futurecast at 6:45 AM Sunday as a weak line of snow showers passes through our northern and eastern counties. Little to no snow accumulation is expected with this system. Even with the more active snow showers Saturday afternoon, the highest report of snow was a dusting on cars and sidewalks and that is really all we can expect. Also keep in mind, there is still a chance for freezing drizzle throughout Sunday morning so watch out for icy spots.
Temperatures will be close to the freezing mark throughout Sunday morning and early afternoon. Then, temperatures will start to slide after the noon hour and we’ll go back into the 20s. As for precipitation, the chance of flurries and freezing drizzle drops off after 2 PM Sunday.
The forecast is turning much warmer in the long-term. Winds will pump in from the south this week and this will result in warmer temperatures each day of the coming work week. Temperatures should reach the low 40s on Tuesday, mid 40s on Wednesday and even the 50 degree mark by Friday.
We will also see a very good chance of rain on Thursday. A low pressure system will come out of the southwest and bring what could be soaking rains to Central Indiana. At this point, thunderstorms can’t be ruled out as well for Thursday.
