…Problems From Snow Squalls Possible…

Snow squalls, also known as snow showers, are possible into early tonight. They could produce blizzard like visibilities and winds for a few minutes, although they won’t strike everywhere. Be ready for driving conditions to get worse very rapidly.

The threat of snow squalls will decrease after midnight. Relatively light flurries may continue much of the night.

…Potentially Dangerous Snow Squalls Possible this Afternoon and
Evening…

Conditions will exist this afternoon and evening that may promote
the development of scattered snow showers and snow squalls. Snow
squalls are locally heavy bursts of snowfall that can lead to
rapid and drastic reductions in visibility over short distances,
often accompanied by gusty winds. At their worst, squalls can be
similar to blizzard conditions, but far more localized and shorter
in duration.

Squalls will be possible across central Indiana, especially
northeast of a Clinton to Bloomington and Bedford line, this
afternoon and evening, most likely in the 3 PM to 10 PM time
frame.

Be alert for extremely localized areas of hazardous travel
conditions this afternoon and evening.

…Icy Conditions Possible Tonight…

A wintry mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet are possible at
times tonight across parts of central Indiana. Precipitation may
initially fall as snow, before changing over to a mix of freezing
rain and sleet, and eventually changing over to all rain. While
air temperatures will rise above freezing fairly quickly tonight with
southerly winds, surfaces near the ground may remain below
freezing longer into the overnight hours. This will make a light
ice accumulation possible tonight, especially on elevated and
untreated surfaces. If travel or time outdoors is part of your
plan tonight, be prepared for slick conditions.

…Heavy Snow Band Moving Through…

A heavy snow band moving through central Indiana will continue to
impact much of the area…especially along the Interstate 70
corridor…through 1 pm. Snowfall rates of around 1-2 inches per
hour at their peak have been reported and can be expected to drop
visibility to a quarter mile or less at times. Total snowfall
amounts within the band of 2 to possibly 4 inches can be
expected, and outside of the band anywhere from a trace to an inch
an a half.

…Snow Expected to Impact During Tuesday Morning Commute…

A quick moving upper wave and Arctic front will merge over
central Indiana Tuesday morning to produce snow…likely beginning
right around the morning commute. Snow will continue into early
afternoon before tapering off. Total snowfall amounts of 1 to 2
inches are anticipated at most locations near and north of
Interstate 70…with lower amounts further south where light
freezing rain and rain is likely to mix in.There is some
potential for snow bands with this system which could lead to
locally higher local amounts as well as rapid reductions in
visibility over small distances.

The combination of potential for visibility reductions…slick
spots on roads and timing of the snow would make for travel
difficulties for the Tuesday morning commute.
