Tracking Big Weather Changes TodayDecember 29th, 2013 at 6:54 am by Ken Brewer under Weather
Brace yourself for the return of bitter cold!
TODAY: A potent storm system will slide to the south and east of us. Southern and eastern Indiana will see some light morning rain on the backside of this system. What we will focus on is what happens later today. Arctic air will sweep into the state later today. Temps will peak around Noon, then fall during the afternoon. There will not be a ton of moisture around today, but whatever is around will convert light showers to a scattered light wintry mix to scattered light snow showers by this evening.
THIS EVENING: Temps will tumble into the 20s with gusty winds. There could be scattered snow showers.
OVERNIGHT: The arctic air will drop into the teens.
MONDAY: It should be dry, but cold. Highs will only reach the low to mid 20s.
8-DAY FORECAST: The cold air will last through most of the week. Several impulses of energy will give us some snow shower chances. Right now, it looks like we could see some flurries New Year’s Eve, then some snow chances New Year’s Night into Thursday morning. Lake Effect flurries and snow showers are possible Friday. Milder air will return for the weekend, and current indications are that we could see a chance of more un-needed rain next Sunday and Monday
