STATEWIDE–After snow moves out Thursday afternoon, temperatures warm up and another winter weather system moves in, according to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
“It should be pretty dry through Friday and Saturday,” said Aaron Updike, meteorologist with the National Weather Service Indianapolis. “For the foreseeable future, we’re not expecting anything like what we saw earlier this week. It doesn’t look like we’ll be getting that kind of snowfall in the next couple of weeks.”
Wind chill temperatures in most of Indiana could reach below zero at times this weekend. On Sunday, Updike says there will be a “warm-up.”
“Temperatures will get into that freezing to slightly above freezing range. We’re expecting some precipitation to fall sometime Sunday night into Monday. It’s likely to be a mix of rain and snow, which could cause some issues,” said Updike.
Updike said there is likely to be just snow in parts of northern Indiana with that system, while people in central and southern Indiana are expected to get rain and some freezing rain.
With temperatures getting warmer, Updike said flooding is also a concern.
“We’re probably going to see some of the snowpack melt, which means there could be some flooding in low-lying areas. Make sure your drains are cleared out, so as the snow melts, the water has someplace to go,” said Updike.
