We have had a dreary day thanks to a cold front moving through. A light wintry mix fell from the sky, but there was nothing heavy reported anywhere. This evening we could see a couple snowflakes or sprinkles, but should stay mainly dry. Patchy fog has developed and will stick around tonight.
Temperatures have cooled into the 30s for most locations, while Bloomington and Columbus are holding in the lower 40s. A wind from the northwest makes it feel even colder outside. Colder air funnels in from the northwest all evening until we hit lows in the lower 20s.
High temps for Sunday will be in the 40s for most places-plus we will have more sunshine than today. The extended forecast is looking decent all 8 days. We will go up and down with our temps, but even the cold dips aren’t too bad. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the lower 60s and upper 50s. A wintry mix and cooler temps return for Wednesday into Thursday.
A weak cold front is moving through Indiana this afternoon. We have the wind, the clouds and the mist as this system passes through. There is a chance for a wintry mix spitting from the clouds, but we will only see some flurries or sprinkles from that. Temperatures are cooler to the northwest than in the southeast. After the system moves through we will have partial clearing and colder temps overnight in the teens and lower 20s.
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.
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.
Sunday: 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.

Daylight saving time begins 2am Sunday. Set your clocks 1 hour ahead before bed. Also, change your smoke detector and weather radio batteries.

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