Look what you’ve done, Mother Nature! The snow pack is melting! Melting! Oh, what a world!
Think of what it looked like outside one week ago today. That historic snowfall – combined with a snow storm from a few days prior to that – totaled 16 inches by Monday morning in Indy. It had settled to 11 inches by Friday morning, but then the rain (and above freezing temperatures) went to work. The snow pack was down to 4 inches by Saturday morning, and 3 inches by Saturday night.
That is: where there WAS a bunch of snow to begin with. The continuing disparity in snow cover will have an impact on today’s high temps. I think it will be about 37 in The Bend, in the upper 30s in Muncie, around 40 in Lafayette and Indy, but into the lows 40s in Richmond, and nearly 50 around Bloomington and Columbus.
Clouds will decrease today, with temps staying above freezing tonight. There is a chance of rain and snow showers Tuesday afternoon. Snow showers are likely Tuesday night and Wednesday. I see chances of rain and snow showers again Thursday, with light snow possible Friday. No heavy snow is expected this week.
