Short Range

The next round of precipitation will move into Indiana tomorrow morning just before noon. Strong warm air advection sets up tonight and into tomorrow bringing in warmer temperatures approaching 40 degrees ahead of a cold front that moves through late tomorrow night. The NAM and GFS are in pretty strong agreement as to the track of this storm with the northern half of the state seeing a mixed bag of precipitation. Most of the state will experience rain with the heaviest falling in the central Indiana. Maximum precipitation is about half an inch for central Indiana, and south of this could see a few tenths of an inch. In northwest Indiana, a mix of sleet and freezing rain is expected. In Gary, it appears to be mostly snow, with the models predicting 4-6" of snow with the potential for some small accumulations of sleet and freezing rain.
