More snow on the way for this weekend

More snow expected this weekend with highest totals coming in through the day on Sunday.  Overall it appears we have 4 separate mid-level disturbances that will slide through by Sunday night.  One will move through first thing on Saturday morning with a second system hitting during the middle of the afternoon.  Finally we will likely wake up to more snow onRBS_1 Sunday morning with possibly the heaviest snow of the weekend falling Sunday night into Monday morning.

Temperatures on Monday are set to plummet as the snow comes to an end.     Clear skies will allow our morning low to fall to near 0 with Monday highs in the low teens.  Tuesday will see similar highs with a low several degrees below 0!

Overall we continue to see near record cold and snow and that pattern doesn’t look like it is going to go away anytime soon.  As we wake up this morning we are less than 7 inches away from the all-time snowiest season ever here in Indianapolis.  As of today we also rank number 10 in coldest winters ever for Indianapolis.  It’s the coldest winter since 1978-79 here in the city.  If we stay cold enough we may just edge out 1981-82 and stay the tenth coldest winter ever for the city.  Of note this is also the longest amount of time between top ten dates that we’ve ever seen.
