Dry for most of the day, rain possible after 8 tonight
A frost advisory is in effect this morning through 9 am. More rain is also possible today as we continue to be impacted by a massive upper low that is now tracking towards the Northeast. Our weather will slowly be improving as we head towards the middle of the week with warmer more comfortable weather moving in. While we get nowhere close to the 80s, highs in the 70s will be possible Wednesday and Thursday. The average high temperature for this time of the year is 70 exactly.
Morning frost should give way to a pretty mostly cloud free late morning. It won’t last as clouds will begin to roll in this afternoon ahead of our next chance for rain tonight. As the upper low tracks east warmer air on its backside will move in. As the warmer air begins to move in we will have a chance for rain and perhaps even a thunderstorm or two. I’ve tried my best not to call what is rolling through tonight a warm front but I am giving up now. Rain will be possible as a warm front slides through the state later on tonight. This front will bring only isolated rain. It looks like most of the day will be dry for Central Indiana and our rain chances for today will remain relatively low no matter where you live across the state.
Highs today should return to the 60s but just barely as most of the day will see temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 50s. Yesterday we only hit 49 degrees so there will be a big difference in terms of how it is going to feel. Winds will also be much calmer throughout the morning and afternoon hours meaning it is going to feel better for those outside for any extended amount of time.
Upper Low Remains in Place:
The reason for our weather is a large upper low that will continue to churn to our north. This will push through not only the warm front later on tonight but the secondary front tomorrow morning that will bring us a second rain chance. That rain chance will be a little more wide spread than what we will see tonight with scattered rain around. It looks like this next round of rain will move in after the morning rush. Any Monday rain will be scattered and the chance for rain should be wrapping up by 2pm in the state.
