Mid-week Snow Coming to Central Indiana

We're just about 12 hours from snow arriving in central Indiana. The updated forecast from NOAA NWS Weather Prediction Center suggests there is anywhere from a 50% to 95% probability for a 4" or greater snow in central Indiana.

When looking at an 8" or greater snow they include a large portion of central Indiana in a 40% to 60% probability just north of I-70 and I-69.

The latest 131-computer model average suggests the following for locales in Indiana.

Indianapolis: 7.1" | Range: 4.3" to 9.8"
Columbus: 5.4" | Range: 1.6" to 8"
Lafayette: 5.1" | Range: 3.9" to 6.5"

A note about the type of snow that will fall Wednesday. It will be a heavier wet snow than what has fallen previously this winter. Snow to water ratio's of 8:1 to 10:1. That means it will be a good packing snow (snowballs/snowmen) but also means this is more of a "heart attack" snow. Be careful when out shoveling!

How much snow would you like to see Wednesday?
