If you're traveling north, be prepared for the potential of heavier snow showers that may reduce visibility, especially in areas like Kokomo and farther north. It's these areas of the state that have a chance of seeing accumulating snowfall of less than one inch through Sunday night. However, the ground is still warm so much of this should be on elevated or grassy surfaces.

The weather pattern will be active through the week, meaning several weather systems will move in bringing a chance of rain or snow to the area. Tuesday looks to bring rain while Thursday may bring accumulating snowfall to parts of central Indiana. We know for certain that arctic air is headed this way and temperatures will be taking a big dive by the end of the week! --Danielle Dozier
