Good morning! We have made some adjustments to lower our snowfall forecast for tonight. The disturbance continues to trend flatter and not as organized. That said, we still expect light accumulations and impacts greatest for Friday morning. First off, we’ll see snow showers creep into southwest Indiana mainly as we head into mid-morning, through early afternoon the snow showers are focused mainly west around Vincennes to Sullivan to Terre Haute. Heading through the afternoon, the band should expand east towards Bloomington and Greencastle by 2-3pm, likely not reaching Indy until around 5pm, with the band of light snow sitting over areas near Terre Haute to Indy to Greenfield through the evening. This will not be amounting to much through the evening, but minor accumulations are possible. Here is the forecast radar from 11am today through 1am Friday:
Forecast radar from 2am to 11am Friday: Based on trends, the “bulk” of the event will be in the 4am to 9am time-frame Friday. Note a heavier focused band of snow from Terre Haute to Bloomington and Seymour. After 10am this will quickly move out and end as drizzle before exiting in the afternoon. By time the drizzle transition occurs, temperatures should generally be near to above freezing. Lower 40s to end the day with a few peeks of sun by the evening.
Latest snowfall forecast: Band of 1-2″ matches where the greatest upward motion and banding is expected. Not everyone in the blue will receive 1-2″. It will likely be a half-inch here, inch and a half here sort of deal. The best chance to get the higher end of this will be in areas from Terre Haute to Bloomington to Seymour where upward motion is greatest. Keep in mind this is the total by mid-morning Friday.
Rain arrives Saturday mainly in the 2pm to 9pm range. A few embedded storms are likely, especially south of I-70, where isolated stronger storms with gusty winds will be the main threat.
Total rain through Saturday night:
Wind forecast over the next 4 days: Windy weekend ahead! Not as windy as 2 weekends ago, but gusts around 40mph Saturday evening, and gusts north of I-70 in the 35-45mph range Sunday.
