After nearly 18 days of warmth and gloomy weather, today we have woken up to this bright, glowing orb in the sky. THE SUN! But it was also a very chilly start to the day as well, with temps dipping below the freezing point, in the mid to upper 20s. Add in a constant breeze out of the south, some areas (including downtown), had wind chill values in the teens.
Enjoy the sunshine while we've got it! Clouds are already starting to build in from north to south. This will keep temperatures cooler in southern Indiana today.
All of Kentuckiana will see increasing clouds this afternoon from around 12-2 pm. By 3 pm, we should all be mostly cloudy. Talk about brief sunshine! Highs today will be in the low 40s, but it will feel cooler thanks to that breeze.
The rest of the day will be cloudy and we could see a few isolated flurries later this evening and tonight. They shouldn't impact your evening plans too much.
Tomorrow is our better shot for not only snow, but snow that sticks! A system from Canada is dropping south and bringing with it the potential for snow. There will be two rounds of snow tomorrow and the cold front will drop our temperatures a few degrees. Our winds will also pick up a bit as well.
There will be a few light snow showers in the morning, this shouldn't amount to much accumulation.
And there should be a midday break from the snow with just mostly cloudy skies, breezy conditions with highs in the mid 30s.
After 5 pm, scattered snow showers return and will continue for the rest of the night and even briefly into Monday morning. Right now we have a 70% chance for snow and you can see on Advancetrak, the snow covers a good portion of our viewing area by 8 pm.
By 2 am, most of the snow will have tapered off, but there will still be a few lingering flakes overnight. There could be impacts for the morning commute so plan ahead!
In terms of accumulation, we are thinking there could be a coating up to a inch, with the highest totals along and north of the river and east of I-65. South of metro in our KY counties, there would most likely be snow coating the grass and cars.
Be sure to join Jeremy this evening on WDRB News to hear his thoughts and I will have the latest information as snow starts to fly, tomorrow morning from 6-9 on WDRB in the Morning! We will also be posting updates on social media. You can find the links to my pages below!
