A Cooling Trend This WeekendMarch 21st, 2014 at 5:04 pm by Pamela Gardner under Colts Forecast, Weather
We have had a warm and sunny day-perfect for outdoor activities. A gusty southwest wind will keep us warm all evening. Our temps stay mild in the 50s and eventually we fall into the 30s for lows after a cold front moves through.
Scattered showers will develop this evening. The main line for scattered rain moves through Indianapolis around midnight according to Forecast 8 Futurecast. Drier and colder air takes over for the rest of the weekend.
Some clouds hang around for Saturday and temps will be much cooler in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Sunday’s highs fall to the mid 30s…at least it will be sunny.
The extended forecast shows us a taste of winter and a taste of spring. Snow showers return for Monday night into Tuesday. The latest forecast model information has central Indiana getting around an inch of snow accumulation by Tuesday evening. There is still some uncertainty so keep checking back with Forecast 8 for updates to that system. Thunderstorms are possible by next Friday.
INCREASED FIRE DANGER: Southern Indiana has extremely low humidity, gusty wind and dry vegetation. That’s a combination for enhanced fire danger. Our news department has had numerous reports of grass fires getting quickly out of control in Daviess County. Today is not a good day to burn. Wait until conditions are better.
