Schall INDOT practice

FORECAST UPDATED: 1:15 pm EST Thursday January 16, 2014 by Matt Schall (

Summary: Heavy snowfall expected tonight and into tomorrow morning.

Snow is expected throughout Indiana tonight and into tomorrow morning as a cold front associated with a low pressure system moves into the area. Snow is expected to start falling anywhere from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm local time. As the night progresses, snowfall will increase in intensity up to one inch of snow per hour. Snow accumulations for the Indiana range from 1-2 inches in the southern regions of Indiana to 6-12 inches in the northern regions of Indiana. Temperatures across the state are expected to drop down to 5-10 degrees Fahrenheit. 20-30 mph winds will accompany these storms making drifting across across roads likely. The timing and speed of this system are not entirely certain causing some uncertainty with the forecast. If the system tracks slower across the state, snow accumulations can be expected to be at the upper limits mentions and vis versa.

Cold temperatures are expected to remain through the weekend.
