After evening snow showers diminished, the temperatures kept dropping crating slick overpasses and bridges for the Monday evening commute. The temperatures have lowered below the freezing mark after 1 pm and while main roads are wet, the circulating air around and overpass and bridge allows those temperatures to fall more quickly. There were numerous slid-offs reported by DPW to the newsroom during our 5 pm broadcasts
NOVEMBRRR BACK ON TRACK
Cold winds blowing across a large snowfield to our northwest. Nearly 30% of the CONUS is snow-covered Monday morning.
The PEAK WIND GUST of 44 mph in Indianapolis early this morning. Northwest winds still are still gusting just before 4:30 pm Monday.
Snow showers will diminish early Monday evening as colder and drier air is imported back into the state.
Overnight the forecast of 18-degrees early Tuesday morning will be the coldest of the season. Coupled with a brisk wind, there will be a real sting. Some locations could have a wind chill reach the single digits.
DECEMBER OPEN COULD BE A WARM ONE
Rain and snow-free for the balance of the work week but light rain and flurries are possible late Thursday with showers possible Friday morning. We are eyeing a weekend storm system that looks to place central Indiana on the warm side again. A windy and warmer weekend at this distance with temperatures surging again to nearly 60-degrees. More in the days ahead. Stay tuned!
