Good morning everyone out there! Waking up or heading to morning classes with some snow flurries flying about. As of 9am at the Muncie Airport it was 23°F with a northeast wind at 14 mph. For the temperatures, we do not expect the temperatures to climb at all today. Temperatures will hold steady for the daytime hours as our high of 29°F was set in the pre-dawn hours around 1am this morning. The morning snow will give way to yet another artic high, giving us another blast of bitterly cold temperatures.
As of 9:30 am, the radar shows bands of moderate to heavy snow just west of Muncie slowly work its way south and east and the northside of the bands could clip Muncie in the next couple of hours. We don’t expect the snow to accumulate to much other than a dusting. The northside of the snow system is producing lighter snow relative to the rest of the system that stretches from Kokomo down the Indianapolis. After 11 am when the system moves through we will see our snow chances decrease as scattered flurries maybe all we have to deal with as we head our way into the afternoon hours. What has been a near snow-free winter thus far has beginning to ramp up.
