Short term: lots of rain and wind with a disaster for Indy

by

Rain will come in during the afternoon with most regions getting into the 50’s with the north in the 40’s. southerly winds will pick up to 30 mph at times by Tuesday night with rainfall from 1-2 inches by Wednesday morning. Temperatures should fall from 40’s and 50’s to the low 30’s for Wednesday and the precipitation ending as flurries with more of  a nw wind.

– there is still a threat for some light freezing rain for CVG and a winter weather adv is up for the northern regions of the state. This should quickly change to rain but may create isolated slick spots.

further north in Indy the forecast is not good the nws office is forecasting the KY ice storm of 09 plus 35 mph winds.

FARTHER SOUTH…INCLUDING THE CITIES OF TERRE HAUTE…
INDIANAPOLIS…BLOOMINGTON…NEW CASTLE AND MUNCIE…WARM AIR IS
EXPECTED TO BE PRESENT AND PRECIPITATION SHOULD CONTINUE TO FALL
AS FREEZING RAIN OR SLEET. SIGNIFICANT ICE ACCUMULATION IS
POSSIBLE…WITH ICE ACCUMULATION OF ONE INCH OR MORE.
FURTHERMORE…STRONG WINDS GUSTING UP TO 35 MPH ARE EXPECTED FROM
LATE TUESDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON. THIS
COMBINATION WILL RESULT IN WIDESPREAD DOWNED TREES AND POWER
LINES.

If you have family in the indy region I suggest informing of the severity of the storm. The city of Indianapolis could be shut down for a few days. after this there region falls below zero at night to add insult to this severe winter storm.

the long term is below and goes into the fri-sat snow chance and the groundhog coming out around mid-month to end winter but features a new snow duel.
