Well bloggers, this has been on of the snowiest winters on record here in Indiana! And the snow just keeps on coming. Anyone who knows me knows that this has been the perfect winter for me! Snow on the ground the whole season long. It just doesn't get any better then that. I know a lot of you are sick of it by now however. And in this post I have both good news and bad news for everyone who is wishing for some warmer weather. Let's get started.
First off we do have some more winter weather in store by as soon as tonight! As we head into the over night hours we can expect another small Alberta clipper to make it's way into the viewing area sometime between 9:pm and 11:pm EST. Not looking like a big snow by any means however another 1" to 2" inches is looking likely. Take a look at this precipitation map below.
This is looking into late tonight / early early Sunday. Right now I'm looking for those darker shades of blue to be in that 1" to 2" inch range with the lighter blues in that inch or less range. I'm agreeing with what the National weather service is forecasting below.
I really like the numbers. Expect a lot tonight around 17* F degrees with light winds between 3 and 5 mph.
Now the next system to be watching will be Monday afternoon! The timing is still out on this system as well as what type of precipitation could it will fall as. Some models are showing a good mix of both rain and snow while others are trying to mix in a little freezing precipitation as well.
You can see the type of precipitation forecast map above showing the chance of some freezing rain with this next system Monday. This is something we will watch closely. right now even if we do pick up some freezing rain I doubt it would be more then 0.10" inches.
The Bufkit models give up hope that we will see more of a rain snow mix rather then an icy mess at this time. And they usually do a pretty good job at forecasting winter weather.
You can see we're looking at all snow for Tonight into Sunday and currently mostly snow if you look to the left of this chart for Monday as well. This is something we will continue to keep a close eye on as we head closer to Monday.
Here's your quick cast below.
Tonight- look for more clouds to move into the area with snow showers starting between 9:pm and 11:pm EST. Show showers will go into early Sunday. Snowfall amounts between 1" and 2" inches. Winds light between 3 and 5 mph. Expect a lot tonight around 17*F degrees.
Sunday- look for cloudy skies to start the day with skies trying to become partly cloudy as we head into the afternoon / evening. Look for a high around 29* degrees with a low Sunday night around 19* degrees. Winds light between 5 and 10 mph.
Monday- a mix of precipitation moves into the area bringing rain / snow likely. Not completely ruling out some freezing rain at this time. New precipitation amounts between .25" and .50" inches. High around 36*F degrees with a low around 22*F degrees. Winds light between 10 and 15 mph.
So with all that talk of more winter weather where is the good news for everyone ready for a warm up? Well I got you covered!
Highs will start to go up as we head into next week. I'm seeing highs from the MOS models reaching the low to upper 40s likely between Tuesday and Saturday! Take a look at these numbers below.
That should give you all something to look forward too as we head through the next couple of days. Have a great weekend bloggers! God Bless.
