Last Updated: 408 days ago
INDIANAPOLIS - The edge of the remains of Hurricane Sandy will affect Indiana's weather through Tuesday, bringing gusty winds, some showers and a chance of some snow flurries to the state.
Clouds will increase across the state from east to west during the day on Monday, with gusty winds getting stronger later in the day, Storm Team 6 meteorologist Todd Klaassen said.
Sustained winds of 20 to 25 mph are expected in the Indianapolis area, with stronger winds in the eastern part of the state.
A wind advisory will go into effect at 5 p.m. Monday through 8 p.m. Tuesday for much of central and eastern Indiana, along and east of a line from Lafayette to Greencastle to Columbus.
Within the advisory area, wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph will be possible. Outside of the advisory area, wind gusts of up to 40 mph will be possible.
A few scattered showers are expected in the eastern half of Indiana on Tuesday and Tuesday night, with the possibility of some snowflakes Tuesday night, as temperatures fall into the 30s.
The forecast track of Sandy takes the storm into the East Coast on Monday evening, pushing it into Pennsylvania and to the northeast after that.
