All eyes on weekend snowstorm; will it impact Michiana?
Posted: Feb 28, 2019 10:49 AM EDT
•Colorado --> Kansas City --> St. Louis --> Indianapolis --> --> Cincinnati --> Columbus --> Pittsburgh
Impactful snow is expected upwards of 100 miles north and south of the I-70 corridor. While not as impressive, these locations could see shovel-able snow by Sunday:
•Paducah, Springfield, Ill., Evansville, Louisville, Lexington, Cleveland
Notice that neither list has cities like Chicago, Fort Wayne, Toledo, or Detroit on it. Travel to and from locations north of U.S. 24 is not expected to be impacted much, if at all. If you're traveling southward, things will be dicey.For Michiana, totals will likely stay below one inch. If someone south of U.S. 30 squeezed out 1-2", it wouldn't be shocking, but the likelihood of more than an inch is very low as looks now. While we may be dodging the snowstorm, we will not be dodging the big-time cold set to invade the Great Lakes and Midwest by Sunday night. Expect temperatures to be way below where they should be Sunday thru Wednesday. Records will be threatened and broke. Wind chills will drop below zero Monday morning thru Wednesday morning. Thankfully, a milder pattern looks like it'll set up by mid-month!
