Wednesday snow didn’t set records

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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

It was a wild and hectic snow day for the day after Christmas, but it wasn’t a record setting day. That distinction goes to December 26th, 1895 when we got 9.5 inches of snow in one day.

The 7.5 inches of snow still on the ground will impact temperatures for the short term with highs likely to run 2 – 5 degrees below guidance.


The snow is going to make it tough to see above freezing temperatures over the next week.

In the short term clouds and northerly winds will keep us cool. We will have a short wave rolling through on Friday night through Saturday morning.

This is really the best chance for any additional snow over the next 7 days. The worst case scenario for snow is about a half inch to a full inch.

There is no guarantee we will see any snow at all in Indianapolis on Saturday morning.

It looks right now any accumulating snow will be north of the city.

Snow pack will play a key role with temperatures in the extended forecast with Monday being the hottest day with highs in the mid to upper 30s.

After weekend snow chances we go back to a dry pattern for the remainder of the week.
