INDIANAPOLIS — Winter weather is finally making it’s way to central Indiana.
Chad Swain, Meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis says at least an inch of snow will accumulate beginning Monday and carrying on to Tuesday.
“For the Indianapolis area, around an inch of snow,” Swain tells WIBC, “the higher amounts would be towards Carmel and the lower amounts would be on the south-west side.”
It’s not just snowfall that Hoosiers will have to prepare for, but cold temperatures as well.
Swain tells WIBC “We’ll have lows in the 20s on Monday night, highs in the mid-30s on Tuesday, but when you factor in the wind, we’re looking at wind chills in the 20s and in the lower teens Monday night.”
Swain says that the temperatures will average back out towards the end of the week, but will quickly drop again due to another winter weather blast this weekend.
So what should Hoosiers do?
“Oh make sure that you have your snow scraper in your car, make sure you give yourself extra time,” Swain tells WIBC, “but tomorrow evening there may be some slick spots [on the road], so give yourself extra time.”
