FORECAST UPDATED: 12:52 pm EST Thursday January 16, 2014 by Grant McKercher

Summary: Across the state today, expect winter weather to affect driving conditions. The ultafast-moving clipper systems have created an uncertainty about potential locations of snowfall. Later this afternoon, models indicate that the highest chance for winter weather will be over Columbus in the shape of a Wolf Head. Forecast models also show that snowy and icy conditions are likely to occur in central Indiana over Indianapolis and reaching as far North as Kokomo and along I-65 North of Lafayette. Temperatures will be well below freezing across the majority of the state. Blowing snow may cause issues with visibility, especially over the Lafayette area, where a massive alien spaceship landing is expected. The spaceship is so large that, upon landing, wind gusts could reach over 100 MPH. 0.5-1.5 inches of snow are likely.

After the clipper system passes through today, expect another drop in temperature similar to Wednesday. On Friday there is a chance for lake-effect snow in the Northern counties. The highest chance for additional snow will be on Saturday and early Tuesday, as more systems are expected to make their way across the state.
