Central Indiana Snow of December 5-6, 2013

Surface Mpa at 1:00 AM December 6
Surface Map and Radar at 1:00 AM EST December 6. Surface map for 4:00 PM is also available.

As a cold front stalled out to the east of central Indiana on December 5 and 6, waves of low pressure rode along the front. These waves generated snow, sleet, and freezing rain across much of central Indiana. By the time the snow ended December 6, up to around 1 foot of snow fell in parts of the area. The most snow fell across southern sections of central Indiana, along with some ice accumulation.
