STATEWIDE–Snow, freezing rain, and sleet are all winter weather elements that will be moving across much of Indiana over the next few days.

The National Weather Service in Northern Indiana is expecting that weather to affect the commute Monday afternoon and evening, which will linger into Tuesday morning.

“We’ll have a period of snow and freezing drizzle moving into the area tonight. Snowfall amounts in the Fort Wayne area are not going to be very much, probably less than an inch. In South Bend, there will be a little bit more snow. We’re looking at about 2-4 inches in that area with some brief, freezing rain,” said Amos Dodson, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Northern Indiana.

A winter weather advisory will go into effect Monday night and last through Tuesday for the northern part of the state. The situation will look a lot different in central and southern Indiana.

“In Indianapolis, we’re looking at today (Monday) and this afternoon as our times for freezing precipitation eventually changing over to rain. The southern half of the state shouldn’t get too much,” said Jason Puma, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Puma said most of the precipitation in central and southern Indiana will be rain. Like northern Indiana, Puma said snow chances to return later in the week for the central portion of the state.

“Snow chances return for Wednesday and Wednesday night, but then we’ll have dry weather for the rest of the workweek,” said Puma.

Puma believes one of the biggest concerns in central and southern Indiana is the accumulation of ice, which will make roadways slick.
