Chris Johnson's Forecast | Rain and snow chances continue for the weekend


Snow moves into southwestern IN late tonight, and it will be closer to 11 p.m. or midnight before we really start to see some steady snow showers IN south central Indiana.

Strong winter winds held temperatures below 40 degrees for the first time this year on Thursday, which ended a 28-day streak of above normal temperatures at Reagan National Airport, our longest stretch of "warmth" in winter in over a decade. There could be a few passing showers for most of us.

The storm coming through the area is a two-part storm system!

Steadier and more widespread snow arrives Saturday evening and continues into Sunday morning. Major cities such as Indianapolis, Cincinnati and St. Louis have been told to prepare for "significant snowfall" - at least 7 inches in some neighborhoods. All of this means more snow north and west and more freezing rain Triad and south. Lows near 30 in the Triad to near 32 south of Asheboro. Plan on a couple inches of snow on the ground by the time you're waking up on Saturday. This also extends south into Randolph and all of Davidson counties. The forecast calls for rain before 1 a.m. Sunday, then a mix of rain and freezing rain.

High pressure sets up Tuesday and Wednesday bringing drier and sunnier weather.
