Cool down is on the wayOctober 20th, 2013 at 7:12 pm by Robb Ellis under Weather
Despite mild temperatures on Sunday, a big cool-down is on the way! Our first chance for wintry precipitation may happen this week, as several chances for rain remain in the forecast. Several nights this week will be at or below freezing.
With a light breeze continuing into the evening, temperatures could stay mild through early morning. Temperatures will likely stay in the 50s until after midnight, but mid 40s are expected for lows. Clouds will be on the increase by early morning.
Unfortunately you’ll have a case of the Mondays with this weather forecast. Highs will be mild, near 60 before a cold front moves through during the early afternoon. That same system will bring light rain or drizzle. Ahead of the system temperatures will be mild, but cooler air rushes in behind it. Lows in the 30s.
Tuesday:Temperatures tumble. Highs will be much cooler, struggling to get into the mid 50s. A weak clipper system will arrive in the afternoon and bring a chance for rain showers into the late afternoon and evening. Some of the rain may switch over to snow overnight, though it remains unclear just how much cool air will be in place when the moisture arrives. Many of the models keep much of the moisture slightly farther north, meaning Indy’s chances for seeing snow remain unclear, but low.
Tuesday’s system may still be lingering, with a few stray rain/snow flurries possible early. Then gradual clearing with temperatures in the 40s for highs, with lows at or below freezing.
Thursday and Friday:
Despite another weak system early Thursday bringing a chance for drizzle/flurries, the pattern looks to clear a bit for the end to the week. Temperatures will remain below-average, but a gradual warming trend will continue into the weekend.
