Evening Planner

A cold front bringing in arctic air will arrive Sunday and temperatures will fall during the day. The highest temperature all day Sunday will be at midnight (mid-20s). Expect the mid-teens during most of Sunday with increasing winds 15-20 mph gusting to 25 mph. This will make it feel like the single digits.

Snow will move through the area Sunday morning with most areas seeing less than 0.5 inches. With road surfaces close to freezing across much of central Indiana, it won't take much to cause slick spots. We'll have reduced visibility where it's snowing with breezy winds causing areas of blowing snow.

The coldest air all season and coldest since Feb. 24 will greet Hoosiers on Monday. Lows will dip below zero with wind chills -15 to -20 degrees. Highs on Monday will only be near 12 degrees in Indy despite sunshine. Wind chills Monday afternoon will range from -5 to -10 degrees.

Another storm system arrives late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Temperatures will only rebound slightly through the week to near 30 degrees for highs. It will still be cold enough as another clipper system comes in to bring accumulating snowfall Wednesday based on current model data.  While amounts may be light on Wednesday, long-range models have a stronger, more southern-track system coming in Friday which may bring several inches of snowfall to Indy. Either way, both are worth watching! Stay tuned for more details! --Danielle Dozier
