STATEWIDE–Nearly the entire state will be getting snow all throughout Monday and into Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
The time to especially watch out for snow is in the afternoon and evening.
“That’s where we see the primary travel impacts because that’s when we’ll be seeing temperatures falling below freezing as snow continues to fall,” said Mike Ryan, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Ryan expects the Indy metro area and much of central Indiana to get around an inch through Tuesday.
“But as you go north and east, especially to places like Kokomo and Muncie, those places may see around two to three inches in some spots. As for people further north, they will be seeing lake-effect snow off of Lake Michigan. In fact, if you get up near South Bend and heading towards Valparaiso, they’ll end up seeing around six inches of snowfall,” said Ryan.
As for cities and towns south of Indianapolis, Ryan said there is potential for some snow, but there will be “little to no accumulation.”
The snow will be completely done by Wednesday. High temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s throughout the week.
The National Weather Service urges you to drive at appropriate speeds, allow for extra stopping distances when approaching intersections, and give yourself extra travel time.
