A dusting of snow from an overnight upper air disturbance is but the latest in a long line of little reminders – we’re not done yet. With the snow or the cold.
Most of today will be mostly cloudy, and high temperatures will be a degree or two cooler than yesterday. TWO cold fronts will move through the state before Thursday.. Neither appears to tap any moisture, but back-to-back attacks will have some parts of Indiana below zero by Friday morning.
Tonight’s wind chills will run between 10 and 15 below. The air temperatures will be mainly in single digits:

Richmond is part of a Wind Chill Advisory that runs 1am-10am Wednesday.)
The second cold front moves through late Wednesday night, and by Friday morning it will be even colder.
The next snow chance is light Friday night. Low pressure will organize in Colorado and take a track favorable to dumping snow on Central Indiana. The center of the storm will move along and just north of the Ohio River and is likely to bring accumulating snow to the area Sunday afternoon and evening – perhaps lingering into Monday morning. Remember: just another 6.2 inches smashes the all time Indy record for a “snow year.” I’ll do the math for you: the current record is 58.2 inches.
The average high today is 44 and the average low is 27. Records are 76 (2000) and -7 (1900). The sun rises at 7:24 and sets at 6:33.
