A Major Snow Event To Our North Brings Some Rain And Snow To Indiana!

So there is a major snow event taking place just to our north at this very moment! I'm talking about blizzard conditions across areas such as ND, SD, and even MIN. Just amazing! Many other states are being effected by this snow event however the states I named above are going to see the worst! Or if your a snow lover "The Best" lol ;)

Just look at this monster of a system below.This thing stretches all the way from ND, / SD, all the way to NY!! WOW what a system! People in the SD, ND, and MIN, areas can expect to see winds gusting to 40 and 50 mph! WOW And take a look at the snowfall expected in the SD, areas.Feet of snow on the ground by the time this thing passes through. You can see 12 + inches of snow expected. Just amazing! I'm a big snow lover as you know so I would love to be up there right about now lol. This system for people in that area will be a dangerous one! With 12+ inches of snow expected and winds gusting to 40 and 50 mph. Visibility will be down to zero and the roads will be totally snow covered! Road crews will have a hard time trying to keep up with this one! If you know of anyone in these areas please give them a call and tell them to STAY HOME and keep posted with their local weather station! Don't go out in this dangerous system.

Still this system will have its effects on Indiana, as well. Just not in the form of a blizzard!

I'm looking for more of a rain to snow mix event for our area starting as soon as tonight! We are seeing a warm front push through the area keeping temperatures pretty steady at this time. Not falling very much. This warm front will be followed by a cold front tomorrow that will give way to some scattered rain showers across the area changing over to a rain / snow mix after 4:pm or 5:pm EST. Also falling temperatures as the day continues tomorrow. Take a look at this Prog Chart for 1:am est tonight below.This is showing the rain that will move into the area later tonight. Light and scattered. Now here's your weather forecast break down below.

Quick Cast.....

Monday we will look for mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers in the morning and afternoon hours. Expect the rain to try and change over to a rain / snow mix around 4:pm - 5:pm EST. snowfall less then a half inch expected. Highs will be around 45* degrees however the temperature will continue to fall as the day continues and the cold front passes through the area. Low Monday night around 25* degrees. Winds between 10 and 15 mph. Breezy! Expect a few gusts near 20 mph possible.

Tuesday we will look for partly cloudy skies across the area. Maybe a few light left over snow flurries in the early morning hours however overall we will be partly cloudy through out the day. Expect a high around 37* degrees with a low Tuesday night around 24* degrees. Winds between 3 and 5 mph.

As for anymore warm ups to come??? Well, looking into the 1st of March I don't see any big warm ups over 48* degrees to the low 50s. This week I believe we will average in the 30s and 40s as our highs.

I will check back again soon bloggers. Have a great evening and a great week!

God Bless!
