Good morning! A Winter Weather Advisory went in effect at 1:00 this morning. This remains in effect until 1 a.m tomorrow (Thursday) morning.
3-4 inches of snow looks likely for here in Muncie, as well as surrounding areas, with locally higher totals are possible, but most areas should stay right in that 3-4 inch range! Winds will also be a concern, as they pick up and gust to around 30 mph. This will result in some blowing snow and single digit wind chills by tomorrow morning!
Impacts should be minimal for the morning commute, with both air and road temperatures initially above freezing. This will keep roads mainly wet until colder air wraps in and temperatures drop. The afternoon/evening commute will likely be where we see the biggest impacts. Both air and road temperatures will be below freezing, and this is when we’ll likely see slushy accumulations and slick spots on roads, especially the untreated ones. Blowing snow as winds pick up will also be impact the commute, as the winds gust to around 30 mph. This will decrease visibilities and create some slick spots as snow is blown across roadways.
The majority of the accumulating snow will fall between now and late this afternoon. Light snow/snow showers linger into early tonight, and this system should be out of the area by the early tomorrow morning.
Check back with Cardinal Weather Service throughout the day for updates! Take it slow, stay safe, and have a great day!
