  • Not a bad finish to the weekend but we’re tracking rain, snow and frigid temperatures next week

    It’s another snowy Saturday. At least it’s a MUCH lighter snow than we’ve seen the previous two weekends. This system will taper off late this evening after dropping around a 1/2″, in areas near I-70 and south, and up to 2″ of snow in our counties north of I-70. Even though it’s not a lot of snow, it could still create some slick spots, especially on untreated roadways. The weekend will finish chilly but on the dry side. We’ll even […]

  • Tracking evening snow showers; additional rounds of arctic air coming

    What a way to end the week! After waking up to single digit temperatures and wind chill temperatures 10 to nearly 20 degrees below zero, we’re still hanging out with the frigid air this afternoon. Many areas are still seeing subzero wind chill values during the lunch hour. The lobe of the polar jet stream that brought us this dangerously cold air will recede north into the late afternoon and evening. We’ll stay chilly tonight but conditions won’t be nearly […]

  • Dangerously cold wind chill temperatures come along with total Lunar eclipse

    After Saturday’s messy winter storm, we’re finishing off the weekend with very uncomfortably cold air. Enough so that a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect now through Monday at noon. Actual temperatures will drop below zero overnight for many of us, and wind chill temperatures will feel well below that. We’re tapping into frigid arctic and as it moves across our snow and ice covered grounds, temperatures will fall very quickly. Plan on morning temperatures for Indianapolis to be right […]

  • We’re not in the clear yet; dangerous travel conditions developing

    While most of the snow has remained in our far northern counties, so far, we’re not in the clear. Very dangerous travel conditions are still developing and getting bad for many out there. Numerous accidents have been reported and those numbers will just keep climbing this afternoon. The track of this storm has created a temperature divide across the state and has been giving us a wide range of precipitation, from snow, rain and plenty of ice. It’s that ice […]

  • Winter storm taking shape for the weekend

    The rain helped make a dent in clearing the snow on the ground, for many of us. However, we didn’t get rid of it all and more snow is on the way by the weekend. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for much of central Indiana. This storm has the potential for high snow totals, along with gusty winds, causing blowing and drifting snow as this storm moves through. These conditions will likely greatly reduce visibility at times and […]

  • A quiet start to the week; more wintry weather ahead

    The snow showers have moved on but not before they left many of us with around a half a foot of snowfall on the ground. The snow pack will take a while to melt away, and the weather these next few days, isn’t going to do much to help. The snow has pushed well off to our east and back in central Indiana, clouds are starting to break to our north and temperatures are we’re headed for a very chilly […]

  • It’s not over yet; tracking additional snow showers through the evening

    A snowy Saturday! You’ve likely been exercising your snow blowers or snow shoveling muscles throughout the day. Many have already seen over 5″ of snow, with more to come. This is the largest single day January snow we’ve seen, in Indianapolis, since the snowstorm of 2014. Back them, 11.4″ fell on the 5th and a whopping 26.9″ fell for the month.
