THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN INDIANAPOLIS HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR A MIX OF SNOW AND FREEZING RAIN...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM 1 AM TO 1 PM EST TUESDAY.
* ROADS ARE LIKELY TO BECOME SLIPPERY WITH A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH OF ACCUMULATION OF ICE FROM THE FREEZING RAIN THAT FOLLOWS THE SNOW. THIS WILL MAKE THE TUESDAY MORNING COMMUTE DIFFICULT.
Yes, as you can see above we do have a few winter weather advisories in effect for some counties in the WLFI viewing area. Here's the break down on what we will see tonight into Tuesday.
Tonight we will start out with the snow showers across the WLFI viewing area with 1" to 2" inches of snow accumulation expected. Exact snowfall amount models are showing most areas with 2.5" Inches. This will try and change over to some mix / freezing rain between 4:am - 6:am EST early Tuesday morning.
Tuesday the mix / freezing rain will give way to less then a tenth inch of ice accumulation. Still we will need to take it slow on the roads! With this light ice accumulation on top of the snow pack things could be slick! Highs Tuesday will be around 36* degrees with lows that night around 23* degrees. Winds between 10 and 20 mph.
You can see the snow / mix in this radar image below.Radar image taken at 6:17pm EST.....
Now I can't have a blog update with out talking about the system coming on Christmas Eve! Take a look at this model image showing the system coming in Christmas Eve around 1:pm EST below.You can see the pink line I added to the map above. This is the freeze line and yes it is looking like it is staying south! This means we should stay ALL SNOW!!! YES!!! Fresh snow pack for Christmas Day! :) Currently it's looking like 3" to 4" Inches is a good starting point. However this will be more detailed as we get closer! A white christmas this year! I can't wait!
Stay safe bloggers. Allow extra time in the morning and take your time! I'll check back again soon.
God Bless, And MERRY CHRISTMAS!! :)
