Central Indiana saw high temperatures come in well before the noon hour today as a cold front moved through the state. Temperatures continued to tumble the remainder of the day under cloudy conditions.
Clouds will decrease overnight and this will help temperatures continue their downward trend. Lows should come in around the upper teens and low 20s across Central Indiana. The snow pack will help in the cooling process as well.
A ridge of high pressure is building in as we start the work week. This will result in plenty of sunshine on Monday and Tuesday. Winds will also swing around to the south starting on Monday and this will help out our temperatures as well. We will easily climb back into the mid 30s for Monday and above the freezing mark. You will notice some melting but it will be a slow process tomorrow.
The warming process goes into high gear this week as the south flow will continue for several days. We’ll get back into the mid 40s by Wednesday. Friday and Saturday should result in high temperatures in the mid 50s!
We’ll actually see two significant areas of low pressure coming in this week and throughout the weekend. Both have the potential to bring soaking rains to central Indiana and even some thunderstorms. Getting more than 1.5″ of rain after combining both rounds of rain is not out of the question.
Sharply colder air will come in behind this system and we’ll be back to the freezer for the following week.
