STATEWIDE–More winter weather is supposed to arrive in Indiana this week, but the National Weather Service in Indianapolis says high temperatures could drop to as low as the single digits by the weekend.
“There will be some light snow flurries today. We’re not thinking there will be any kind of accumulation, especially on roadways. You should be fine. Some grassy surfaces and sidewalks might see a little bit of dusting, but not too much,” said Aaron Updike, meteorologist from the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
The next winter weather system is supposed to move in around Thursday.
“We’ll have a slight cool down on Tuesday into Wednesday. Then we’ll warm back up with some rain on Thursday, with maybe some mixed precipitation on the front and back end of that. Then we’re looking into a pretty significant cool down into the weekend,” said Updike. “Saturday night into Sunday, we’re thinking single digits right now.”
That increases the risk of frostbite and other concerns.
“Just make sure you have blankets and things like that in your car in case you can’t get it to start or you get stuck. If you are going to be outside during those days, keep it brief, and stay inside when you can,” said Updike.
Updike doesn’t expect any major snow or ice accumulation from the system that moves in Thursday.
Many places in central Indiana received around four inches of snow from Saturday through Monday morning. In northern Indiana, some cities and towns got nearly eight inches of snow.
