Steady snow showers arrived early Sunday morning. The system has produced heavy bands of snow, especially near Crawfordsville and Zionsville! Snow quickly accumulated along the I-65 and I-74 corridors and dropped the visibility early Sunday morning. Embedded heavy bands within the snow showers will continue to fall through midday.
Most of the snow fell west and north of downtown Indy, with an icy mix developing over our southern counties. The pink/purple colors on Guardian Radar/ Futurecast represent freezing rain/sleet. Bloomington, Bedford and Columbus have been seeing more of the icy mix.
A wintry mix will continue to pass over central Indiana through the afternoon with the activity winding down this evening. Behind the main wave of precipitation, areas of freezing drizzle will develop. There are already reports of freezing drizzle in central Illinois, which is creating difficult travel conditions despite the steady snowfall that has already moved out of the area.
Temperatures will remain below freezing in the northern half of the state and those locations will see mostly snow. One to two inches of snow will be possible near Lafayette, Peru and Monticello. Less than one inch may accumulate near Indy.
Light ice may accumulate within the mixing zone S/SE of downtown Indy. The locations receiving freezing rain will likely not see much snow, but the ice may still create slick road conditions today. One viewer near Connersville described hearing a “crunching noise” walking along the sidewalks Sunday morning.
Flurries will linger tonight and into early Monday morning. Surfaces overnight may refreeze as temperatures drop back into the mid-20s. Once the flurries exit the area, cloud cover will decrease Monday afternoon and evening. Highs will climb into the lower 30s.
