Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog: Soggy To A Weekend Snow Chance

Wind chills make it 30 to 35° colder Saturday morning than today.

We end a soggy day in central Indiana with Live Doppler 13 Radar showing the more stable band of rain drifting east. At this rate, we expect minimal rain cover by 6 p.m. with only scattered rain/snow showers tonight.

The arrival of colder air overnight suggests the possibility of a few patches of refreeze/ice after midnight through Saturday morning…as temperatures drop into the 20s/teens.

Additionally, the colder airflow from Lake Michigan will likely contribute to a dispersal of snow showers and/or lake effect snow showers during the first half of Saturday across central Indiana. .. and will last longer in northeast Indiana immediately downwind of the Lake.

The latest modeling shows a higher disturbance bringing light and more stable snow to the observation area on Sunday. It may be enough to drop a dusting over half an inch locally and create a smooth trip with cool temps in the 20s/20s while it’s happening. Follow the forecast closely this weekend.

Much warmer air will head in that direction midway through next week on the eastern side of another strong storm system affecting the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley late Wednesday through Friday morning.
