Post-Christmas storm could bring accumulating snow to Indiana
Long-range forecast shows potential winter storm
Last Updated: 148 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - The Christmas week forecast is always of high interest, particularly when it includes a chance of snow.
That's exactly what is creeping into the forecast for the upcoming week.
A weak system will bring a chance of precipitation to much of the state on Monday. With temperatures generally above freezing, southern parts of the state could get some light rain.
Along the Interstate 70 corridor, there could be a light rain/snow mix, while areas farther north of Indianapolis could get some very light snow.
Christmas day will be mostly dry across the region, but a storm system brewing to the southwest will set up the chance for a much more significant snowfall in Indiana beginning on Wednesday.
A low-pressure system is expected to strengthen and track south of the state. With cooler temperatures in place, it appears that much of the state could get accumulating snow.
The amount of snow will depend upon the track of the low-pressure system, how much moisture it has available and how strong it becomes.
High temperatures on Wednesday in the Indianapolis area are expected to be at or slightly below freezing.
The forecast will become much more clear in the coming days.
