Part of the night will be mostly clear to clear with frost & some patchy light fog & lows 25-30. However, we should cloud up by early morning with temperatures rising to 30-34.
A few flurries & spotty snow showers are possible in the morning as weak disturbance passes. Skies should then clear before we cloud up again by evening with highs of 45-49 with a west wind at 10-20 mph decreasing to 4-7 mph after 4-5 p.m.
Rain/snow, rain & all snow are likely in the area Thursday evening-night to Friday morning.
It overall still looks like the heaviest snowfall of 3-6" will be north of US 24.
Between 18 & 24, 1-3" is likely.
1" or less is possible farther south with a sharp cut-off to no accumulation generally along & south of a Covington to Darlington to Thorntown line.
Some tweaks to this are still possible. Numbers here may be shifted northward or southward.
After this ends, a few rain/snow/sleet showers will bubble up Friday afternoon-evening with so much cold air aloft.
It will be breezy to windy with gusts 25-30 mph from the north after bring east-northeast to east Thursday night-Friday morning at 10-15 mph.

Bulk of the severe weather risk (with could be on the order of ENHANCED to MODERATE) will be in the southern U.S. (with risk of tornadoes). We may see MARGINAL to SLIGHT RISK sneak in Wednesday &/or Thursday.
We turn very warm Friday-Sunday (April 24-26) with highs in the 70s & 80s.
SLIGHT RISK parameters set up April 26-27.
A lot of rounds of severe weather show up in the Plains April 29-May 3, but we tend to get the leftovers. We do look warm with highs in the 70s & 80s.
We see next round of severe weather risk in our viewing area after around April 26-27 set up around May 4 with SLIGHT to ENHANCED RISK parameters up.
Overall rainfall looks above normal April 20 to around May 4.
We have had a stretch of below normal precipitation lately, which has contributed greatly to farm fieldwork & even planting progress in the area. It will turn wet, but at least it will not be wet AND cold, but WARM. This will get corn that is planted up & out of the ground.
Following this, a period of below normal temperatures with northwest & west-northwest flow looks to dominate. Rainfall should go back below normal for a bit to allow farmers to ramp up planting by May 8-10.
