Watching a storm system heading our way Saturday night into Sunday which could bring heavy/significant snow to parts of our area.  There is still uncertainty with the track of the system...the rain/snow line will be near the metro.  Areas to the north have the greatest chance of picking up a decent amount of snow.  If this line shifts 40 to 50 miles to the south, the metro will get hit with the heaviest snow.

Here is the latest thinking...

By 9AM Sunday morning...snow north, rain/snow mix metro and rain south.


Sunday 2PM ... The rain/snow line still near the metro with moderate to heavy snowfall likely from Paoli up to Seymour.


Sunday 5 or 6PM ... The heavy to moderate snow pushes into the metro with the rain/snow line to our far south.  It is during this time frame where most of the snow will accumulate on the ground.


Sunday 10PM ... The snow comes to an end with temperatures plummeting into the single digits and low teens. 


By early Monday morning, the temperatures bottom out with most spots below zero (wind chill values -10 to -20 degrees)


Here is a look at the expected snowfall amounts, which are still subject to change. 

After the snow moves out, the dangerously cold temperatures spill into the area.  We can expect some of our coldest air in over a decade early next week!  Wind chill values throughout the day Monday and Tuesday will be between 2 degrees and 8 below zero.  Overnight temperatures will fall between -10 and -20 degrees.
