Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 3:37 PM EST Feb. 7, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Winter returns as snow... wind and cold temperatures combine to
produce hazardous travel conditions Monday through Wednesday...

A strong upper level low will settle across the Great Lakes on
Monday and move little through midweek. This will result in
widespread snow showers and squalls across central Indiana
beginning Monday afternoon and likely lingering into Wednesday. In
addition... much colder air will overspread the Ohio Valley. Highs
by Wednesday are not likely to rise out of the teens with subzero
wind chills.

Snow showers will quickly increase in coverage by midday Monday...
with the potential for heavier snow squalls Monday afternoon
through the day Tuesday. Scattered snow showers will continue
Tuesday night and Wednesday... gradually ending from southwest to
northeast.

The combination of snow with wind gusts peaking at 25 to 30 mph
at times will produce blowing snow and near whiteout conditions
in heavier squalls... especially Monday night and Tuesday. As
temperatures fall... the snow and wind will create hazardous
travel conditions across central Indiana with icy and snow covered
roadways. Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible by late
Wednesday with locally higher amounts where heavier squalls
persist.

Stay tuned to NWS Indianapolis for forecast updates as this system
approaches.
