Overnight lows will drop down to 23 degrees with increasing winds. We carry a 20% chance of snow overnight, with a brief flurry or two possible. Major snow totals are expected in the far northern portions of Indiana into Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois, with 6-12" possible for most areas. Through Delaware County, we should not see snow accumulation.
Temperatures climb to around 10 degrees above average for this time of year tomorrow in Muncie. Temperatures across the state will span the mid 30's, with some regions in southern Indiana breaking the 50 degree mark. With these warmer temperatures, we will see snow begin to melt.
One word to describe the upcoming weekend - active. We'll see widespread snow through early Saturday morning. After, we'll see an overcast midday free of snow before it returns into central Indiana around 6 pm. Sunday morning calls for a tricky forecast, with freezing rain, sleet, and snow all in play for the morning hours. While models are showing Muncie right between the freezing rain and snow dividing line, this forecast is still subject to change.
After an active weekend, we'll see clearing conditions ensue, with temperatures above average through Thursday.
