STATEWIDE–You can expect rain, snow, and cold air across Indiana Wednesday and Thursday.

“When we look at the snow amounts for the Indy metro area, amounts are generally light. We’re talking around an inch at the most. Heavier amounts of snow are going to be possible in places further north. Places like Lafayette, Kokomo, and points even further north from that. In those regions, they could see between three and five inches of snow,” says Jason Puma, National Weather Service of Indianapolis Meteorologist. 

Puma says rain will start to fall around lunchtime Wednesday for much of the state. 

“We’ve had a lot of rain lately so that actually could exasperate flooding concerns. This time of year, we always remind folks ‘Turn around, don’t drown’ and don’t drive your vehicles into floodwaters. Think about that Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday evening,” says Puma.  

The estimated snowfall for the Indy metro area is around an inch. The southern part of the state will likely see just heavy rain, but flooding will be a concern, Puma says. 

Puma says snow will arrive late Wednesday night into the overnight hours Thursday morning.  

“Then after this storm system exits the area, a secondary cold front is going to push through on Thursday afternoon. That’s going to be a burst of some arctic air,” Puma continued. 

Many cities and towns in northern and central Indiana will have high temperatures that drop to below 20 Friday morning. It will be warmer in the southern part of the state Friday.
