"Lesser amounts west with increasing amounts east. Indianapolis is right in the middle, expecting around 2-4" of snow through this evening.
This is from the NWS Louisville showing the snow depth this morning. The combination of heavy rain and melting ice from the recent thaw may cause severe flooding as rivers and streams overflow. Temperatures remain unseasonably warm for this time of year.
Today, the temperature will reach the mid 50s. There's a breeze too. Friday night into Saturday, a chinook will develop and push out the arctic air. Even a few rumbles of thunder can not be ruled out. Around 1-2 inches possible.
The drop in temperature has not completely removed the threat of flooding.
"There is also a risk of roof collapses in New England, where up to a couple of feet of snow remains and the heavy rain adds more weight", says AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dave Samuhel. However, it won't be enough to worry about accumulations, especially after the warmth. Any precipitation that falls will be very light, and many towns may not even get one. "An additional 1" to 3" may accumulate on top of the glaze of ice. There could be some icy or slippery areas to start the morning, but most shouldn't run into major issues due to the timing. Turning colder through the day. Temperatures in the upper 50's at 7 AM. Wind chills are expected to be below freezing and speeds are expected to be between 10-25 miles per hour. By the late morning, the front will continue to push east out of the area, diminishing the snow showers from west to east through the afternoon.
Sunday - Plenty of sun. We will have partly cloudy skies with highs in the teens and 20s. Clouds build fast during the afternoon ahead of the next system. As a result a cold rain continued to fall.
Saturday will bring occasional snow, mainly before 1p.m., with a high near 26. We are tracking the transition over to all snow by this evening.
THURSDAY: Partly cloudy skies develop, with a high temperature of 28 degrees.
Have a great weekend!
