Heavy snow has arrived to Central Indiana

Central Indiana started the morning with the first wave of snowfall and rainfall from this system.  We had reports of just a dusting of snow to up to 2″ or more in some spots.  As temperatures warmed this afternoon, many people saw this snow melt.  But there is definitely more snow on the way and it’s headed in this afternoon from Illinois.  The leading edge of this could bring in a rain/snow mix but this will quickly to turn to all snow, especially north of I-70. 

Winter storm warnings are currently active across our entire viewing area.  This will continue until noon Monday.

9 PM: Snow easily covers the metro and a very good portion of our viewing area.  Thundersnow may be heard in some spots.  Winds will also be higher producing a blowing snow. This will reduce visibility.  Roads become slick, especially to the west.

Midnight:  Snowfall reaches its highest intensity across the state.  Snowfall rates will be at or above 1″ per hour.  Visibility will be low, roads will be snow-covered and winds will create some blowing and drifting.  If you have to travel between 12 AM to 3 AM, please have an emergency kit in your car and a fully charged cell phone handy.  Thundersnow will continue in spots across Central Indiana.

3 AM MONDAY: Snowfall goes from intense to more moderate.  Snowfall will continue to accumulate.  Roads will be snow covered across all of Central Indiana.  Winds will also remain breezy, dropping visibility and creating blowing and drifting.

6-9 AM MONDAY: Snow showers continue but not as widespread across Central Indiana.  The majority of the accumulating snow will have fallen but minor accumulations are still possible.

    What about the dry slot to our south west? How much will that cut down our snow totals?

      "Why is American Airlines canceling flights out of Indy TWELVE hours before its due to take off?"

      Where are these flights going? Could they be heading somewhere that the storm is set to arrive causing long delays?

      Don't forget, as a feel good thing, a law was passed that folks forced to sit on planes during long delays are entitled to some sort of compensation. Rather than risk a major pay out, it's better to just nix the flights and reevaluate in the morning.

    1 – 3 inches look more likely. Not exactly a winter storm so far.

    OMG, Fox 59, will you PLEASE stop with the freaking "weather alerts" every 20 minutes on TV!! We can all freaking SEE that it's snowing outside!!

      Exactly. If you are watching TV while driving, the SNOW isn't your problem. If you are at home, you don't 20 min updates on the road conditions.

    I do believe this snow is worse than the "blizzard" of 2012.
