Temperatures surpassed the 50 degree mark late Sunday evening thanks to a strong south wind in Central Indiana. This warm air will not last much longer as a cold front will sweep across the area overnight and change our wind direction back to more of a cold flow. Temperatures will be noticeably colder on Monday with afternoon high temperatures only reaching the upper 30s and low 40s. Skies will be partly cloudy with a bit more cloud cover developing by the late afternoon.
You are also going to notice the presence of very high winds on Monday. A tight pressure gradient will be in place as this low pressure system departs and winds should remain gusty through Monday night. Winds will be coming from the west at 20-30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. Large profile vehicles will notice a strong push throughout the day on Monday, especially on North and South bound roads.
Near seasonal temperatures will be in place for the first half of the work week. Temperatures will start to climb on Wednesday and bump up considerably on Thursday. This is ahead of yet another clipper system but it will pull in plenty of warm air before it pushes through. Highs on Thursday should reach the upper 40s if not up to the 50 degree mark.
Sharply colder air will return to Central Indiana on Friday thanks to the cold front associated with the clipper. There will also be the chance for a rain/snow mix. A secondary cold front will swing through on Saturday and this extra blast of cold air will make temperatures fall even further.
