Winter weather advisories are out and begin at 5 pm tonight.  At this point it looks like Indianapolis will see a little over 2 inches of snow overall.  There is the possibility that we will see isolated areas that see up to four inches of snow.  Places to our south, from Monroe County east to Franklin County could see up to 5 inches of snow.

Winter Advisories ADI

Snow crews have done an outstanding job of preparing roads ahead of the anticipated snow, but slick spots will be possible throughout the day today and Monday morning.  The timing of the snow will likely give crews enough time to get a pretty good handle on roads for the Monday commute, but as always there will be slick spots and an increased number of accidents due to the hazardous driving conditions.

Behind the snow comes the coldest weather since March 3rd as temperatures will fall to single digits with snow on the ground on Tuesday morning.  Morning lows Tuesday are forecast to bottom out at around 7 degrees in Indianapolis.  It will be even colder outside the city with a wind chill at or below 0.  Tuesday highs will be in the low 20s with highs the rest of the week in the mid to low 30s.
