Enjoy one more balmy day!
TODAY: If you liked the mild air yesterday, you will enjoy even warmer air today. Highs will make the mid to upper 60s! There may even be a few places that hit 70 in southern Indiana! After some sunshine, some high clouds will arrive during the afternoon. Northern parts of the area will see some cooler temps with the highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s.
THIS EVENING: Rain and maybe some thunderstorms will develop this evening as a storm system will arrive . Rain could be heavy at times. Temps will stay warm through the evening.
COLD AIR , RAIN MIXING WITH SNOW OVERNIGHT: The potent storm system will flex its muscle overnight and colder air will pour into the state. As it does so, there will still be plenty of moisture to change things to a wet snow. The higher snow totals will be in northern Indiana, where the colder air will last longer, thus seeing more snow than rain. Those places could see 3″-6″ of snow or more. Those places will also see gusty wind, and the chance of blowing snow. Most of central Indiana will see in the ballpark of 1″-3″ of snow. Southern parts of our area should see under 1″ or snow.
SNOW MOVES OUT, FALLING TEMPS, WIND WEDNESDAY: The heaviest of the snow will be in the morning hours. By Noon, most of the snow will move out, but gusty wind and some blowing snow are possible in the afternoon, especially as you go north. Temps will fall into the mid 20s by late afternoon with wind chill values approaching single digits!
8-DAY FORECAST: Temps will stay cold Thursday, then we will see milder air return Friday. The weekend will be below normal temperature wise, but not frigid. Highs will be in the low 40s and upper 30s.

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.

Southwest winds will boost highs into the lower 60s this afternoon. Skies should become partly sunny.

TODAY: It should be a fantastic day, with plenty of sunshine, and spring-like temperatures. Highs should reach the 60s, with lots of sunshine!
THIS EVENING: It should be a pretty mild evening, with temps…
OVERNIGHT: Lows will only drop into the low to mid 40s.
TUESDAY: One last really mild day. Highs will range from the mid to upper 50s north to the 60s central and south.
WINTER RETURNS WEDNESDAY! A strong cold front will arrive overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. This means that initially we will see some rain at first, and maybe some heavy rain in places, then as colder air arrives, we will see a changeover to snow. Northern parts of our are will see the snow for a bit longer than other areas, so as of today, that looks to be the higher totals. Central and southern Indiana don’t look to see snow for as long of a period of time, so the totals look to be much lower. The current projections have most of the metro area in the 1″-3″ range, with some 3″-6″ range possible in northern parts of our area, then 1″ or less in southern parts of our area. These numbers are preliminary and we will adjust as needed between now on then. With the ground and pavement being warm, most of the accumulation will take place on grassy areas, but there should be some accumulation on pavement at some point.
8-DAY FORECAST: After the mid-week system, we will see another chilly day Thursday, then the see-saw temperature pattern will kick in. Milder air will arrive Friday into Saturday, then we will cool off a bit by the end of the weekend.

Temperatures are in the the 40s in most locations this evening. Tonight we stay mainly clear with milder temps in the lower 30s.
Monday and Tuesday our weather will be fantastic with sunshine and highs both days in the lower 60s.
Changes move in Tuesday night into Wednesday when our next system moves in. This one looks to begin as a wintry mix and may end with light snow. Accumulation looks to stay minor. It will be tough for the snow to accumulate since our temps will be so warm prior to that. Stay tuned as the latest forecast model info comes in we may tweak the forecast. Temperatures will fall to the upper 30s for highs Wednesday and Thursday. Friday we jump back up to the lower 50s.

Temperatures are in the upper 30s and lower 40s this late Sunday afternoon. We have mostly sunny skies reported all over the state. Tonight we stay mainly clear with lows in the 30s, not quite as cold as last night.

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.
