Christmas Eve Forecast + Winter Storm UpdateDecember 24th, 2012 at 8:36 am by Lindsey Monroe under Weather
Christmas Eve: There is chance for light rain showers and freezing drizzle this morning which could cause some slick spots to develop on the roadways. Otherwise skies will be mostly cloudy for the remainder of the afternoon hours as temperatures climb into the upper 30s.
Christmas Day: We’ll stay dry tonight with partly cloudy skies but it will be rather cold as we drop back near 24°. Look for increasing cloud cover on Christmas day with highs near 38°.
Post-Christmas Winter Storm: A potent storm system will bring snow showers to the Valley late Tuesday into Wednesday with moderate snow accumulations expected. As of right now, it is looking like 2-5″ across the southeastern potions of the Valley with 6″ or more possible across central/northwest locations. Highs winds gusting up to 40 mph will create poor road conditions with blowing snow and reduced visibility.
A Winter Storm Watch will be in effect late Tuesday through Wednesday evening.
Extended Outlook: We’ll dry things out Thursday and Friday with a second storm system bringing another wave of snow showers to the Wabash Valley beginning late Friday evening lasting through the day on Saturday.
