SNOW SHOWERS ARRIVE
Colder air is surging into central Indiana late Thursday on brisk north west winds. Gusts have reached 40 mph in Indianapolis as a new cold front will sweeps the state. A more seasonal chill settles in to end the work week.
As of Thursday, a streak of 9 consecutive days of above normal temperatures continues with an official high of 41° at 2:03 PM. We have not had a afternoon below 40° since Tuesday December 20th.
The cooler air brigs along a few snow showers late Thursday. These brief and often vigorous downpours of snow will briefly reduce visibility and put down just enough of a coating of snow to create some slick spots. The coverage of the snow showers may reach 20 to 30% coverage of the area before midnight.
the winds will remain quite brisk through sunrise so plan on a much colder feel. Temperatures will dip into the 20s by sunrise but combined with the west-northwest winds, the wind chill could reach single digits in some areas ear;ly friday morning.
