NWS calls for Winter Storm Watch through Tuesday

Sunday, February 7, 2010

The National Weather Service based in Indianapolis announced the area is under another winter storm watch.

According to the service, snow could develop Monday evening and continue through Tuesday evening, with the potential of 6 inches of total snowfall by Tuesday morning.

Significant blowing and drifting snow could also be a concern Tuesday evening and Wednesday with wind gusts in excess of 30 mph possible, according to the service.

Temperatures were expected in the mid- to high-20s through Tuesday.

The service stated a winter storm watch means there is a "potential for significant snow, sleet, or ice accumulation that may impact travel," although stated there was a great deal of "uncertainty," regarding the storm.

The service called for a slight chance of snow through Wednesday with areas of blowing continuing into the evening. In addition, it called for a high near 26 Wednesday and a low of 11-degrees.

Thursday is projected as partly sunny with a high near 26 and a low around 13 in the evening, while the service called for a clear Friday with a high near 30 and a low near 16.

It also called for a high in the 30s by Saturday.
