INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 6, 2016)--Good Saturday afternoon! Central Indiana started with sunshine early before clouds moved in for a couple of hours late morning. The sunshine was in full force late this afternoon with temperatures in the mid-40s.

Tonight expect lows in the low 30s with an increase in cloud cover by Sunday morning. We'll bring in a partly cloudy sky to start Sunday with a light southwest wind. Clouds will build back in through the afternoon Sunday with a slight chance of a shower in the late afternoon or evening. The atmosphere is relatively dry so amounts if any, will be light.

A deep trough of low pressure will move in early next week and pieces of energy will rotate around an area of low pressure to our north bringing snow showers to the area through much of next week. Monday will be breezy and much colder with highs in the low 30s. Snow squalls also look to set up which will cause rapid changes in visibility and quick accumulations. A widespread 1-2 inches of snowfall appears possible through early Tuesday morning across central Indiana.
