INDIANAPOLIS — You can expect to see snow most of the day Wednesday.
Meteorologist Mike Ryan with the National Weather Service says rain will turn into snow early in the morning around the Indy metro, with the heaviest snow falling from mid-morning through late afternoon. However, snow totals won’t be too outrageous in central Indiana. I-70 will once again be the dividing line. Morgan, Johnson and Shelby counties will see around an inch of snow, while Boone, Hamilton and Madison counties could get around 3-4 inches.
Ryan says areas in north central Indiana will have higher amounts.
“Places like Lafayette and Kokomo have been experiencing snow since late Tuesday evening,” he said. “So with the continuing snow today, they could see 4-6 inches by tonight.”
Far parts of northern Indiana, like Fort Wayne, South Bend, and Valparaiso, could be digging out of 6-8 inches of snow on Thursday morning.
The wind will also play a factor throughout the day on Wednesday.
“Wind gusts up to 25-30 miles per hour,” Ryan said. “That may lead to blowing snow, especially into tonight.” He says that could create some travel concerns during the evening commute and throughout Wednesday night.
Once the snow comes to an end, cold temperatures settle in for most of the state. Ryan says wind chills on Thursday and Friday morning could be in the teens or single digits.
If you’re not a fan of this winter weather, Ryan says to wait until next week, where highs will be back into the 40s and 50s.
