Light snow passing through on this colder Tuesday

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

Temperatures will be 30 degrees colder from the high yesterday to what we’ll see today.  And with this colder air comes a quick shot of snow this morning and up through the afternoon hours.  What’s happening is behind the main cold front is some cold air aloft and it’s causing these snow showers.  This is what is literally squeezing out the last of the excess moisture from the atmosphere and is resulting in light snow showers.  Some of you may only see flurries while other gets a light dusting of snow.  The best activity will be seen from I-70 and to the north.

 Here’s what Live Guardian radar looked like at 10 AM Tuesday.

Snowfall will easily keep going past the noon hour as this wave is slow to move through. After looking at a few different weather models, I wouldn’t be surprised to see flurries linger throughout the evening hours.  The RAP model shows the chance for flurries all the way until the evening hours while the RPM has it cutting off by 3 PM.

Snowfall by 1:45 PM

So we’ll keep a chance of flurries in through the afternoon drive home with decreasing clouds overnight.  This is not going to be a snow that accumulates for the majority of us.  Instead, it will provide a dusting of light snow that blows around on the roads and creates a light coat of snow on grassy surfaces.  It’s only in our northern counties that we could see up to a few tenths of an inch of snowfall where more steady snow showers set up.

 Here’s a picture from Zionsville that depicts the light snow from this morning.
