Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for February 27, 2019


Not much happening over the next few days. We stay cold, but will start to see some temperature moderation today. Most of the state should get to above freezing levels this afternoon. There may be few flurries this morning north of US 6, and again tomorrow late near the OH river, but in general, we are precipitation free over a majority of the state now through Sunday midday.

We are tweaking the forecast a bit for Sunday afternoon and evening. We do see a quick moving batch of light snow coming into the state of that period and lasting through the overnight. By next Monday morning we have all precipitation off to the east. WE can see a coating to an inch or two of snow from that event, with coverage at 80% of the state.

Dry and cold weather is back for next week. Our coldest temps are in for Monday and Tuesday behind that late weekend snow threat. WE will see single digit lows and highs in the teens to low twenties for that period. The map at right is an updated look at temperatures around Tuesday midday, compared to normal. We keep a dry pattern through next Thursday.

Next Thursday night into Friday morning minor snows move over the state again, but they stay mostly over central and southern Indiana. WE are looking at a coating to an inch from US 24 southward, and only clouds farther north.

We start the extended 11-16 day period with dry weather for the finish of next week and for the weekend. Then we still see a good threat of moderate to heavy rains for the 11th-13th. Two waves bring a total potential of 1-4” of rain with 100% coverage.

Overall, this is not a bad forecast. The liquid equivalent of the snow threats later this weekend and next week will be limited to no more than .25” combined…which would be below normal for this time of year. Temps stay chilly, with the coldest air of this cycle early next week, but we still look for significant warming for the rains that start around the 11th.
