Central Indiana could still see some patchy freezing drizzle this evening as cold air rushes into the state and a little bit of moisture remains.  The National Weather Service issued a special weather statement earlier today regarding this freezing drizzle and that continues until 9:30 PM. The advisory from earlier today in our northern counties was allowed to expire at 8 PM.   But there is no advisory at this time. Still, please be careful on the roads!


Late tonight, some light snow showers will be possible as cold air continues to move into Indiana.  And yes, it’s getting colder out there fast! We hit an early high today of 44°F at 1 PM here in Indianapolis. 2 hours later, we had already dropped nearly 10 degrees!  Temperatures will continue to slide overnight and eventually bottom out in the mid to upper teens.

Skies turn partly cloudy on Monday but it will be much colder than the weekend with highs only in the low 20s.  Wind Chill forecastWith winds at 5 to 12 mph during the day, it’s easily going to feel like the teens throughout the day for much of central Indiana.

A clipper system will move through the Midwest late Monday night and into Tuesday morning.  For the most part, it does not look to bring much snowfall to the majority of the state.  The best chance for snow will be in the northern 1/3 of our viewing area and it comes in just after midnight.  This could bring a light layer of snow to the roads again so we’ll keep an eye on it for you!

Tuesday will be another partly cloudy and chilly day across the state. Temperatures should top out in the upper 20s which is a good 5-6°F below normal for this time of year.
