A Few Sprinkles & FlurriesOctober 24th, 2013 at 6:26 am by Pamela Gardner under Weather
A weak system will move through the Ohio Valley today bringing a chance for some sprinkles and some flurries. We already have some light rain showing up on Vipir radar northwest of Indianapolis. There could be some snowflakes mixed in. The light wintry mix chance is isolated through the afternoon. Most of us will just have a chilly day with partly cloudy skies.
Temperatures are in the mid to upper 30s now. This afternoon our temps will be similar to yesterday’s highs in the mid and upper 40s.
Tonight’s lows take a big dive as they reach the mid to upper 20s. Clear skies overnight will allow any daytime heat to escape. The record low of Indianapolis is 25 degrees set in 1887 and we will get close to that record low. A Freeze Warning is in effect for most of central Indiana 2am to 10 am Friday. The counties to the north and west have already had a hard freeze, so the National Weather Service will not continue issuing frost or freeze warnings in those spots.
A slight warming trend kicks in soon…highs on Friday reach the upper 40s. The lower 50s return for the weekend with both days dry. By mid-week next week temps increase to the lower 60s, but scattered showers move through. The rain could stick around for trick-or-treating on Halloween…stay tuned.
