It will take awhile for the chill the moved in yesterday to move out, but we should still reach the mid 40s by this afternoon on average! 60s arrive tomorrow and Tuesday before wintry temps return by mid-week.
TODAY: The cold air that moved in last night will linger this morning, but it will move out quickly, and milder air will start to arrive later today. That will mean near-normal numbers by late afternoon.
THIS EVENING: It will be a more pleasant evening than yesterday. Temps will stay in the mid 30s most of the evening.
OVERNIGHT: The warmer air surging into the state will keep temperatures steady in the mid 30s overnight, so it will be a milder start for back-to-work and back-to-school Monday morning.
MONDAY: A shot of warm air will surge into the state Monday and skyrocket temperatures into the 60s Monday, with plenty of sunshine.
SEE-SAW TEMPS IN 8-DAY FORECAST: Temps will stay near 60 on Tuesday, then winter weather tries to make a comeback Wednesday. We could see a rain / snow mix Wednesday with temps in the 30s. Thursday will stay chilly before some milder air returns Friday and for part of next weekend.
There will be some scattered light rain showers, or even a few scattered light snow showers this afternoon, but neither should cause any problems. Temps will peak by mid-afternoon then as a cold front passes through, cool down by late afternoon.
TODAY: A weak cold front will slide through the state today. Precipitation will start as scattered light rain showers, then we may see some scattered light snow showers on the backside of this system as it passes through. With the mild air we have seen the past several days, and the fact that it should stay above freezing, I don’t think we will see accumulation. Any places that do should be north of Indy and should be under 1″ Highs today will climb into the low to mid 40s.
THIS EVENING: Clouds will linger and colder air will drop into the upper 20s by late this evening.
OVERNIGHT: Lows will drop into the lower 20s with scattered clouds around.
SUNDAY: Sunshine will return as high pressure builds back in. Temps will return to closer-to-normal values as we will see the middle 40s for highs.
8-DAY FORECAST…BALMY MONDAY AND TUESDAY! Warmer air will surge into the region Monday and Tuesday, putting highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A cold front will bring a chance for a wintry mix Wednesday, then colder air returns for Thursday. Temps will bounce back and forth through next weekend, as an active weather pattern takes hold.
We are seeing temps near or above freezing south of Indianapolis. To the north, we are seeing temps in the 20s with pockets of flurries and snow showers.
Meteorologist Robb Ellis will have the latest on the snow showers and much-needed mild air in your forecast at 5!
BUS STOP: Most kids will see temps in the single digits this morning, and wind chill values near or below zero.
REST OF TODAY: The core of the latest cold spell will begin to relax a bit. This means we will improve from the upper teens that we saw yesterday, and reach the upper 20s to around 30 later today with decent amount of sunshine mixing with clouds. There may be a few flurries in extreme northern Indiana.
THIS EVENING: If you are going to be out this evening, temps will be cool, but not quite as cold as last evening. We will be in the low to mid 20s for most of the evening, and it should be dry.
NOT AS COLD TONIGHT: Lows will still be plenty cold, but not as cold as this morning! Expect numbers in the mid teens.
SLIGHTLY MILDER WEDNESDAY: We will see the slow warming trend continue on Wednesday. Highs will get near or slightly above freezing.
8-DAY FORECAST…OVERALL MILDER, SOME BUMPS IN THE ROAD: There will be a weak clipper slide through the state Wednesday night into Thursday morning. There may be another weak system for the weekend (tradition, it seems like, right?). Other than that, the bitter cold will go away for awhile, but most temps will be below normal through the middle of next week.
RIGHT NOW: The mid-morning sunshine has provided little relief from the cold. Temperatures are still in the single digits from Indianapolis and areas to the north. Wind Chill values are below zero in almost all places.
LATER TODAY: It won’t get much warmer…highs will struggle to the upper teens to around 20 degrees.
After the interesting weather this weekend, we should see colder, drier air today.
TODAY: The winter storm continues to move away from the state of Indiana. The colder, drier air that helped steer a bulk of the snow away from us will also gives us cold temperatures today. Highs will only reach the low 20s. There should be a mix of sun and clouds.
THIS EVENING: It will be a bitter cold this evening with mainly clear skies.
OVERNIGHT: Lows drop into the single digits overnight.
TUESDAY: It will be milder for Tuesday. After a chilly start, we should see somewhat milder air move in and we will see highs in the upper 20s to lower 30s.
8-DAY FORECAST: There will be a weak system move through mid-week late Wednesday into Thursday morning. As of right now, it does not appear to be a big deal. Milder air will continue to build. Highs will get into the 40s Thursday and Friday. There could be a wintry mix next Saturday, but a lot can happen between now and then, so we will keep an eye on that as we get closer.
RIGHT NOW: We are in a lull in central Indiana, but another potent wave is heading towards central Indiana. It still looks like this system will bring some mix and mainly snow in central and southern Indiana. Northern parts of our area may get little if any additional snow.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? How much we will get is still tough to say, but it should be enough to get central and southern Indiana in the 4″-8″ range (though I think it will be on the low end). I think northern parts of the area will stay at the 2″-4″ they have already received. Having said that, this system is still a bear to get a handle on, and has a mind of its own, so we will keep with it all day, and tonight.
SNOW TOTALS SO FAR: Here is a sample of reports so far. Many locations that have snow have seen 1″-4″ of snow.
WHAT IS AHEAD: There will be a heavy mix along and south of I-70 for a few more hours. Areas to the north will get a break, then we have to see where additional waves set up later this afternoon. Those spots will end up in the 4″-8″ band of snow. Snow will not wind down until late evening or early overnight in central and southern Indiana. Northern Indiana may not see much or any additional snow.
