INDIANAPOLIS — All of this rain in central Indiana will eventually turn to snow, but how much will we get?
Mike Ryan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, says it all depends on where you live.
The northern half of the state is under a Winter Storm Watch late tonight and all day Wednesday.
“Indianapolis is not included in the watch, but locations in the north metro — Boone and Hamilton counties — and points north of there are under the watch,” Ryan said.
He says the Indy metro will see the most snow on Wednesday afternoon and during the evening commute, with totals reaching 1-3 inches.
The more north you go, the more snow you’ll see.
“North central Indiana, places like Lafayette and Kokomo, will get around 3 to 5 inches,” Ryan said. “6 to 8 inches, maybe even higher, as you get up towards Rensselaer, Rochester, and definitely South Bend and towards the Chicagoland area.”
On the flip side, southern Indiana will see fewer amounts. Ryan says Bloomington and Columbus might see an inch of snow, but cities and towns along the Ohio River Valley might not see any, as temperatures should stay warm enough to keep any precipitation as rain.
