STATEWIDE–It is spring, but it appears winter will make a brief appearance in Indiana this week. Snow is expected beginning this Tuesday.

“We’re talking about one last hurrah for winter this week,” said WISH-TV meteorologist Stephanie Mead. “There might be some very very minor accumulations of snow up to an inch. There might be an isolated two inches the further north you go into northern Indiana. It is going to be a cold start to the day come Wednesday.”

Wednesday will be the coldest day of the week for many places in the state with high temperatures in the 40s and lows in the 30s.

“We’ll see rain move in first very late Tuesday evening. Once temperatures begin to dip below the freezing mark, we’ll start to see that transition over (to snow). A lot of this changeover will occur after midnight,” said Mead.

By Thursday, however, temperatures will warm up and the snow will be gone.

“High temperatures for Thursday will be in the 50s and then we’ll start to trend toward the 60s both Saturday and Sunday. Then eventually we get into the mid 60s. So this is very brief. We’ll see temperatures eventually return to the seasonal high by the end of the week,” said Mead.

The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a freeze watch to run from Tuesday night through Wednesday morning for nearly the entire state.
