Expect most of central Indiana to be in the 30s by morning and rain will transition to snow through the morning.

It was the warmest day so far of 2014 with highs in the upper 60s and 70s for most spots in central Indiana. It was also the warmest day since October 14, 2013.
Get ready for a roller coaster ride of temperatures. Temperatures will swing dramatically from near 70 on Tuesday to snow and 20s on Wednesday.
Temperatures will remain very mild for most of the evening, but once the temps start dropping, they’ll drop quickly. Expect partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies.
Rain will move in by midnight, and could be heavy at times. Some thunder may be possible. Temperatures will continue to drop overnight. Temperatures will likely be in the 40s by midnight and continue dropping into the 30s by morning.
Rain will transition to snow just before daybreak in areas northwest of Indy and by 9AM for southeastern metro Indianapolis. Snow may be heavy at times and will likely accumulate as the morning progresses. 1 to 3″ of accumulation is expected for the metro area, with heavier amounts to the north. Temperatures will continue to drop as strong northwest winds usher in even colder air.
Snow will wrap up by midday to early afternoon, but a few flurries could continue through the evening. Temperatures will stay in the 20s for most of the afternoon with strong winds.
Temperatures will drop into the single digits and low 10s by Thursday morning. Winds will let up slightly, but should still remain brisk overnight.
A chilly start but sunshine will warm temperatures into the low to mid 30s. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Lows in the mid 20s.
Friday through the weekend:
Temperatures return to the 50s but a brief weak system arrives on Saturday and could bring some light rain or wintry mix. Lows will likely stay in the 30s with temperatures dropping slightly by Sunday.

With temperatures into the low 60s, today will likely end up being the warmest day of the year so far. We just need to get to 62 or higher.
A current look at temperatures around central Indiana shows most locations will top out in the 60s with plenty of sunshine. Winds have become lighter than yesterday, but are still out of the west or southwest.
Overnight temperatures will drop quickly from the 60s to the 30s by morning. Heavy rain will begin around midnight and some thunder could be possible.
Rain changes to snow by the morning rush hour and light accumulation of 1″ to 3″ is possible by midday.

Big changes are coming. If you haven’t enjoyed the temperatures near 60 on Monday, you’ll have one more chance this week, before winter returns. By Wednesday, temperatures will drop dramatically and bring snow likely to accumulate.
Windy and mild. Lows in the low 40s.
Another warm day, and likely the last one of the week. Highs will top out around 60 degrees. Big changes come late Tuesday night with rain arriving around midnight. Lows in the upper 20s.
Temperatures will continue dropping for most of Wednesday, likely starting in the upper 20s to low 30s and dropping through the 20s during the day, reaching the 10s late Wednesday night.
Rain early Wednesday morning will change over to snow just before daybreak. Some accumulation is likely. This will impact the morning commute but road temperatures may have warmed slightly from the previous few warm days. However, it may not hold off the snow accumulation for long until road temperatures cool and a messy commute could be possible.
For the Indianapolis metro area, 1 to 3″ of snow could be possible, with the heaviest amounts to the north. Up to 3 to 6″ of snow is possible north of Indianapolis, closer to Fort Wayne. South of Indy, amounts will be lighter, likely around an inch.
Highs will be stuck in the 30s with lows in the 20s. Partly cloudy skies.
Friday and Saturday:
A return to more “normal” temperatures. Highs near 50 and lows near 30. Partly to mostly cloudy skies.

We’re in the 50s this afternoon! And headed for 60. It’s likely that some spots (if not most) will reach 60 degrees before the day is done. Lots of mid and high level clouds have rolled in and that may keep some spots from reaching 60 this afternoon.
Strong southwest winds will continue this afternoon and will keep temperatures mild through the evening. Expect temperatures to only drop into the 40s overnight. Winds will only calm lightly.
Temperatures on Tuesday will return to near 60, but enjoy it while you can because big changes come late Tuesday night and into Wednesday as rain turns into snow and temperatures drop dramatically.

After a beautiful taste of Spring on Friday with highs into the mid 50s, clouds and cooler temperatures return on Saturday. The system is brief though and temperatures will return to 50s and even 60s by Monday.
Clouds may increase by daybreak but mild temperatures are expected. Lows in the mid 30s.
Temperatures will be able to warm into the 40s briefly before a cold front arrives around midday. A little rain or rain/snow mix may accompany the front as it passes during the afternoon. Temperatures will drop behind this system with lows in the 20s and 30s.
Clouds may linger in the early part of the day, but sunshine should be plentiful during the day. Unfortunately cold air will be in place and it may take most of the day to warm the temperatures into the 40s. Lows near 40.
Monday and Tuesday:
A beautiful pair of days! Highs will be near 60 both days with lots of sunshine. Overnight lows will be in the mid 40s Monday night but near freezing Tuesday night.
A weak wintry system returns on Wednesday with a chance for snow and rain mix and cooler temperatures. Highs in the low 40s with lows in the 20s.
Cooler with highs near 40s and lows in the upper 20s. Mostly clear skies.

Congratulations! Most locations have made it to 50 degrees today and it feels great!
Sunshine has been plentiful with only a few high thin clouds in place. Light south winds have kicked in and highs should top out in the low to mid 50s. Overnight lows will likely stay above freezing.

Overnight lows are expected to drop another 5-10 degrees with morning lows expected in the mid 20s for the metro, with 10s expected to the north.
And get ready for a beautiful Friday with highs near 50 and plenty of sunshine.

Another weak wintry system arrives in the middle of the week, and brings the temps back down below average.
