... Snow... wind and cold temperatures combine to produce hazardous
travel conditions at times through Wednesday...
A strong upper level low over northern Indiana will move slowly
east through midweek. The upper low and northwest winds off Lake
Michigan will result in scattered to numerous snow showers and
isolated squalls across central Indiana through this evening. The
snow showers will be less numerous later tonight and end across
northeastern parts of central Indiana by late Wednesday.
In addition... very cold air will filter in over the Ohio Valley.
Highs by Wednesday are not likely to rise out of the teens with
subzero wind chills overnight tonight and Wednesday morning and
again overnight Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
The combination of snow with wind gusts to 25 mph will produce
blowing snow and lowered visibility in heavier snow
showers... especially this afternoon. The snow and wind will
create some hazardous travel conditions across central Indiana
with icy and snow covered roadways.
Total accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible by late
Wednesday with the highest amounts near and east of a Kokomo to
Rushville line. Locally higher amounts will occur if heavier snow
Motorists should be alert to slick roads and sudden reductions in
the visibility at times through midweek.
