Snowy overnight ahead
We are tracking our next system that will work its way into central Indiana late this evening into the overnight hours. Currently, the system is working through parts of Iowa and Illinois. Local temperatures will drop to the lower 20's for the remainder of the evening. A few isolated snow showers are possible through the evening hours across the viewing area, but the majority of the snow will arrive Wednesday.
Overnight lows will drop to 20 degrees, with the large majority of the snow moving in overnight. Snow will continue all the way through the early morning commute. A dry slot is expected to form with the passing of this system, creating some uncertainty within the forecast. Expect around half an inch of snow in Muncie and the surrounding continues. Areas further to the north and south will see snowfall totals of around an inch.
Wednesday will bring a high of 26 degrees with mostly cloudy conditions. Expect a tricky morning commute due to the overnight snow, with slick roads possible, especially in rural areas.
Temperatures will remain relatively stable through the 7-day, remaining mostly under average for this time of year, with the average being 35 degrees. Rain showers are possible Saturday night into Sunday morning.
