Here comes the snow! This month has been a January to remember due to the bitter cold and snow. At this point the city is running 5 degrees below average for monthly temperatures. This month is already the third snowiest January ever and after today we will likely be looking at one of the top five snowiest months ever.
Today’s snow: We are officially calling for 1” to 3” of snow. I think most won’t see more than 2 inches. The best chance for snow will be south of I-70. We are also throwing in that there is the potential for up to 4 inches of snow. The reason we are doing this is that generally when there is snow already on the ground snow reports often times come in heavier than what they really are. Don’t be surprised if you see a number higher than 3 inches.
Tracking the cold: We know it is going to be cold as we head into the overnight hours tonight and for the next three days, but do we go subzero? Clouds are going to need to clear out in order for us to hit temps below 0 for Wednesday morning. Officially we are going to go with a morning low of about 2 in the city and colder outside with a high of 17 degrees. Snow chances all are set to return for northern areas tomorrow late day and early on Thursday. Indianapolis will see an inch or less of snow.
Real cold air still days out: After a little bit of a warm-up going into the weekend and another round of snow possible on Saturday and Sunday, things turn really cold. Monday expect temps to drop all day long through Tuesday morning. We may not see temps above 0 during the daytime on Tuesday! This next cold snap will likely not be as cold as the start of the year but will be close.
