ridge of high pressure will be main player in this weekend’s forecast

Don’t be surprised if you see a flurry or two to start your day but by the end of the day we expect to see some sunshine peeking through.  Temperatures today will be warmer than yesterday but not by much.  Yesterday Indianapolis hit a high of just 32°.  Light winds from the north will keep the city in the mid to upper 30s.

The dominate feature right now for Indiana heading into the weekend will be a ridge of high pressure.  This ridge will continue to slowly slide to the east and by Friday we will begin to see winds setting up from the southeast.  Friday highs will hit the mid-40s with most snow disappearing on that day.  Highs over the weekend will be near 50 degrees on Saturday and mid-50s on Sunday.  Skies will be clear on Friday and Saturday with rain chances going up on Sunday.

Sunday rain totals could top an inch across area with isolated rain totals of up to an inch and a half.  This along with the weekend snow melt may mean some small stream flooding over the weekend.  Next week will see another cold surge hitting the area behind the cold front.  Tuesday highs should be close to 40 degrees before we once again edge up to highs near 50 by Thursday.
