We have some light snow passing through the northern third of Indiana. The system is moving east, southeast, but as it dives slightly south it’s running into drier air. The northern half of the state will continue to see flurries to light snow this afternoon through tonight. We will receive a dusting up to half an inch of accumulation at best. Temperatures are in the upper teens and lower 20s under a mostly sunny sky for the southern half of Indiana. Highs today reach the upper 20s and lower 30s.
It is going to be another cold day with highs near 30 degrees. Vipir radar is indicating flurries over northern Illinois and extreme northern Indiana. The flurries should weaken during the day but areas north of Indy could see a few flurries late today.
Warmer air will move in over the next few days. Highs tomorrow will be in the upper 30s and near 50 on Friday. Skies will be mostly sunny.
The weekend will find a front moving in on Saturday. This will bring the threat for a few light rain and snow showers. Milder air will arrive for the beginning of next week with highs in the 50s Monday and Tuesday.
A thin crescent moon will greet most overnight with clear skies likely to continue through daybreak. Clear skies and light winds mean temperatures will be able to drop again tonight, though not as cold as last night. Expect lows in the mid 10s.
VIPIR is quiet at this hour, though a weak clipper system is sneaking in from the northwest. This system will move through northern Indiana in the morning and afternoon on Wednesday, but it could bring a few flurries to Indianapolis and north central Indiana.
Highs on Wednesday will only get to 30 degrees, thanks to the additional clouds associated with the weak clipper. More sunshine returns Thursday and Friday and temperatures will continue to warm up.
We’re all waiting anxiously for the temperatures to warm up, but it may be painfully slow over the next week. And a couple of snow chances sneak into the forecast, but they should not amount to significant accumulation.
Mostly clear and cold. Lows in the mid 10s.
A brief weak clipper may slide through northern Indiana on Tuesday and bring a chance for light snow. Only a few flurries are likely for the Indianapolis metro area during the afternoon, but areas like Lafayette, Kokomo, Marion and Fort Wayne could pick up some light accumulation of less than an inch. Otherwise partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected with a little more sunshine south of Indianapolis. Highs near 30 and lows near 20.
Thursday and Friday:
High temperatures will continue warming up for the remainder of the week and should be able to make it into the 40s by Friday afternoon. Some locations south of Indianapolis could reach 50 degrees. Partly cloudy skies will continue for the remainder of the week. Lows will remain in the 20s.
Light wintry mix could be possible on Saturday, but there’s not a lot of moisture with this system. Highs will be in the upper 30s with lows in the 20s.
Sunday and next week:
Highs return to the 40s with partly cloudy skies. Light rain could be possible for Tuesday of next week. Overnight lows warm slightly, getting to near freezing.
Despite some clouds lingering for part of the day, a bit of clearing has taken place and sunshine is helping to move the temperatures in a positive direction.
Most locations in central Indiana are in the mid t upper 20s and heading for 30 degrees. A couple of spots will just touch 30 before dropping quickly again this evening.
Lows tonight will go back down into the 10s but single digits are possible north of Indy.
Sunshine should continue into this afternoon. Some high and mid level clouds will decorate the sky. Temperatures will climb into the upper 20s. Our normal high is now 47.
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.
Temperatures continue to drop this evening and some locations have already dropped into the single digits.
Current conditions for most of central Indiana include clear skies and winds that are becoming light. A light north wind continues, but in locations where that wind becomes calm, temperatures will likely drop quickly as cold air settles near the surface.
Lows are expected to be in the single digits again for tonight, with some locations getting very close to 0.
The record low temperatures at Indianapolis is 2 degrees. Our forecast calls for 5 degrees, but it’s possible we could drop to 2 before daybreak.
If you’re ready for a warm up, you’re in luck! Temperatures will continue to move in a positive direction for most of this week. Temps will barely get to near-normal values, but it’s better than the below-freezing numbers we’ve been dealing with.
