At 4am: Lafayette 21, with a wind chill of 6. It was still 31 (chill of 20) in Indy. Winds in LAF & the Haute were around 20mph.
An Arctic cold front is sweeping through Indiana Friday morning, which will cause gusty winds up to 30 mph, and temps falling into the teens. Chills will be in the single digits much of the day.
Those winds will whip up snow that fell yesterday and overnight – and that could still fall this morning. An upper level wave will also be pushing to the northeast, bringing squalls of snow to southern and eastern Indiana. A quick inch of snow could accumulate, and travel would be hampered by the limited visibility caused by the gusty wind.
The best chance of those snow showers in Indy will be between about 7 and 10am. The chance is there until Noon for Muncie and Richmond, and that’s where totals could reach two inches. Places like Lafayette and Terre Haute would see less than an inch from any lingering snow showers today.
All snow showers should fade to flurries tonight, but another clipper Saturday afternoon and evening will bring 2-4 inches of snow to all of Central Indiana.
Sunday and Monday are quiet, but even colder air starts pouring in Monday night, and highs will only be in the teens Tuesday and Wednesday. We will be around zero Wednesday and Thursday morning, with another clipping hitting us with snow on Wednesday.
