The big weather story this week is the weather event that is currently affecting our area. A Winter Weather Advisory is currently in effect till 1 PM tomorrow for snow accumulations totaling 2 to 4 inches. Temperatures will hover right around the freezing mark for most of the event making this snow more of a wetter variety. Be careful if you have to travel this evening or tomorrow morning for slick road conditions due to the flash freeze expected.
Heading into tomorrow afternoon and evening, temperatures will steadily drop as the day progresses followed by what could be the most potent shot of arctic air to date. A low of 6 degrees is currently the forecast with wind chills bottoming out as low as 10 below Thursday night.
From Friday through Sunday, we’ll start to see temperatures start to moderate once again with sunny skies starting to return. Temperatures will be generally in the mid to upper 30s with temperatures Sunday approaching the low 40s.
Another storm system will make its way into the area beginning Monday and lasting into Tuesday, although at this time I expect for Muncie to be on the warm side of the storm. Rain will likely accompany this storm with temperatures making an approach at 50 degrees both days.
