INDIANAPOLIS — There might be a chance of some snow flurries Friday across the state, but even if your city or town gets an inch or two, it won’t make up for the lack of snow Indiana has had so far this winter.
Indianapolis is far below average for this time of the year, says WISH-TV Meteorologist Marcus Bailey.
“We’re only sitting at 2.7 inches of snowfall,” Bailey said. “To put that into comparison, we’re between eight and nine inches below average to date.”
In fact, the entire state is below average, including northern Indiana, which has had a few big snow days this winter.
“South Bend is a good example,” Bailey said. “19.5 inches of snow so far, and that seems like a lot, but that’s still running almost a foot below average.”
Indianapolis typically sees 24 to 25 inches of snow every winter, and Bailey says there is still time to potentially reach close to that number. We’re only halfway through this winter season, and he says February is usually a pretty snowy month in central Indiana. He says it’s not even unusual to have a big snowstorm in March either. On March 24, 2018 — the day of the Indiana High School boys basketball state finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse — Indianapolis received close to a foot of snow.
