Strong winds fuel today's temperature warm up! The preliminary high is 41° in Indianapolis. Gusts go higher and may approach 40 miles per hour later tonight before a shift. Hang on!
UPDATE: gusts have jumped to 43 mph at 7 pm in Indianapolis.
A low pressure is dropping southeast - another in a series of 'clipper' lows bringing these wild temperatures swings. We will get much colder overnight and brace for a wind chill in the single digits by sunrise Thursday. Fortunately winds will ease through the night.
RATHER SNOW-LESS SO FAR
Snow is not expected for several days, the exception perhaps a few lingering flurries overnight. This is the least amount of snowfall to date in Indianapolis (December 13th) since 2012.
One year ago we received 3.9" of snow on the 13th - the largest snow of the season and it accounted for 40% of our entire seasonal total!
