You ought to enjoy the temperatures today while you can!  This will be the warmest afternoon we will see for quite some time…cold air is on the move out west and will be arriving within the next 24 to 36 hours.

Expect most of the day to be rather gray and damp but still very warm for this time of the year, as highs reach the 60-degree mark.  Rain chances are quite low throughout the day but should begin to ramp up by the evening and overnight!  A cold front moving in tonight should add the lift to get showers going and perhaps even a clap of thunder in our far southeastern counties.  Here is your day planner:

Going up!

Winter storm taking shape now across the southern Rockies from Nevada to Arizona.  This storm is still forming and will continue to evolve in the days ahead before arriving here on Friday!  There is still much uncertainty on the exact track it will take through Indiana.  My current thinking has us dealing with two waves…first one arrives on Thursday night into Friday morning with light snow and sleet accumulations but roads could be messy, especially south of Indy!  Second push by midday Friday with more snow and sleet.  With icy accumulations mixed with snow, our totals don’t look huge but impact on roads could be quite hazardous…Here is a breakdown from Thursday night through Friday night:
