THURSDAY MORNING UPDATE: Indy’s storm total as of 4am was just under 2 inches. Freezing rain was reported at times overnight in Terre Haute and Bloomington, and is still a threat in the southern third of the state this morning.
I think I’ll stick with what I posted before, with the exception that in Indy the storm total could be 3-4 inches, instead of right at 3. Up to 3″ to the north, 4-5 to the south of Indy, with, it appears, most of that trending toward 4. Accumulating snow should end between 8 and 10am. The Winter Weather Advisory goes until 1pm for parts of Central Indiana.
Thursday morning drive in Indy will be a mess. Snow should move in during the later evening hours, and be heavy at times from around Midnight until the first half of morning rush hour. Snow will diminish by midday. Around 3 inches should accumulate in the Indy Metro area. 1-3″ should fall to the north of Indy. 4-6 inches could fall to the south of the Indy Metro. There may be some sleet and freezing rain mixed in from around Bloomington southward. Wind will not be a factor this time around.
