Weekend Winter Storm Threat Diminishes, But Snow Possible
Winter Weather Threat Remains
3:00 AM, Dec 9, 2010
A couple of storm systems are expected to affect Indiana's weather over the next few days, bringing the threat of a couple of bouts of snow to the state.A weak system will move north of central Indiana early Friday morning. Some light snow will be possible across the northern half of the state, but accumulations are expected to be light, Storm Team 6 Chief Meteorologist Kevin Gregory said.That weak storm system will usher in some warmer air across the region, setting the stage for the weekend storm.The latest forecast indicates that storm is setting up to push north of central Indiana, which would mean primarily rain chances and warmer temperatures on Saturday, with a possible shift to snow on Sunday.Earlier forecast models projected that the storm would be south of central Indiana, which would cause more snow to fall.The forecast is in a state of flux and could change quite a bit as the storm system forms and begins moving toward Indiana, but the risk of a winter storm over the weekend is lower than earlier thought.
As the storm moves away on Sunday, some snow could fall, with blustery winds and much cooler temperatures.After the storm moves away, another blast of Arctic air will invade the state, with high temperatures in the teens and snow showers remaining in the forecast early next week.Low temperatures could be near zero early next week, too.
