    • It will be in effect tonight. 7:00 PM Sunday to 7:00 AM Tuesday EST
  • For more information on what these watches/warnings/advisories mean, go to our story on Winter Weather Alerts.

TIMING

Most of your Sunday will be cloudy, windy, and cold. Low temperatures have been in the single-digits, close to zero degrees. With wind gusts up to 20 mph, wind chill temperatures have been sub-zero. 

  • Tonight
    • Look for snow showers to begin after 9:00 PM Sunday evening and lasting up until 4:00 AM to 6:00 AM Monday morning.
  • Monday Morning
    • We will see a brief break in the snow Monday morning and early afternoon. 
  • Monday Afternoon/Evening
    • Heavy snow will be likely later in the day and into the evening hours.
  • Monday Overnight
    • Snow will begin to subside. However, flurries will be possible Tuesday morning. 

IMPACTS

  • Snowfall and roadways
    • This will be dry snow since temperatures will be well below freezing (Sorry... No Snowmen!). Drifting may become a concern especially on East-West oriented roadways. Your Monday morning and evening commutes will be hazardous since we are expecting moderate to heavy snow likely during these times. 
  • Temperatures
    • Temperatures will remain very cold over the next 3 days. With wind gusts up to 15-20 mph, wind chill values will be in the single digits and below zero. 
    • Frostbite can occur within 30 minutes especially to exposed skin. 
    • For more information on hypothermia, read up on Signs of Hypothermia.
  • Wind
    • Blowing and drifting will be a cause for concern. 
    • Wind gusts will be out of the north, 15-20 mph. 
    • This will, again, cause low wind chill values and problems on roadways.
    • Visibility on the roadway can easily become low.
    • Power outages may occur.

ACCUMULATIONS

  • Snow accumulations will range from 2-8 inches in the Wabash Valley.
  • As noted in the map below, the further south-east portions of the region will see the heaviest snowfall.

As always, the Storm Team will continue to update this forecast. Be sure to download the Storm Team 10 App free for android and apple devices. 

Also, give yourself plenty of time if you have to get out and about. Drive slow and put extra space between you and others. With temperatures well below freezing, salt can become ineffective due to its properties. Salt may help melt the snow in areas but refreeze overnight and cause black ice. For more stories on wintertime travel and safety, visit the Storm Team's Weather Blog.

The Storm Team is not projecting this to be a major winter storm. However, as with any winter storm, any ice on roadways can cause major concerns. It is important to stay weather aware over the next few days.
