Warm and rainy Thursday, latest on Winter Storm Friday

The weather is soupy and will be Thursday before a Winter Storm arrives Friday

THIS EVENING:  Expect areas of fog to linger until late evening, otherwise low clouds, warm air and drizzle will persist with temps staying in the low to mid 50s.

OVERNIGHT: It will be warm with drizzle overnight with lows staying in the low 50s

RAINY THURSDAY:  Rain, wind and warm air will dominate Thursday with highs in the upper 50s pushing 60 degrees.

  

WINTER STORM FRIDAY 1ST FORECAST: Now that the storm system is over land in the SW US, models are getting a better handle on what to expect and when for now, though there could be shifts.  Right now, expect a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet for the Friday AM commute.  As colder air moves in Friday afternoon, we will see a change to snow.  This timing and location will be tricky.  So we have 2 concerns…snow totals, and ice accumulation. Some areas south of I-70 as of now could see >.25″+ of ice.  This could be enough to cause power outage concerns if that occurs.  If it is sleet, that would be not as bad on the power.  Snowfall could see a band of 2″-5″ of snow for central and southern Indiana.  The spread is larger to reflect the uncertainty for now.  More update to come, so stay tuned.

  

  

8-DAY OUTLOOK: Bitter cold but dry for the weekend, another chance of snow arrives Monday.  Temps will stay very cold through Wednesday of next week.  Milder air will return late next week.
