INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Monday afternoon, Indiana! Today marks the third day in a row of below-average temperatures and while it's cool, it's not as bad as the last couple of days. For the rest of this afternoon and evening, plan on a mostly clear sky with temperatures falling into the 30s.

We'll increase the cloud cover overnight with lows in the mid-20s and light east, northeast winds 3 to 7 mph. Tuesday will bring more clouds than sun with highs near 50 degrees and east, southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

If you're traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, plan on moisture spreading into Indiana from the west late Tuesday night. There's a possibility that we see a wintry mix of rain, sleet or snow early Wednesday to the north of Indianapolis. Pavement temperatures are still well above freezing and air temperatures will soar pretty quickly through the day with a warm front. This means we're not expecting any issues on the roads should we see a mix in northern areas. Rain will be the rule for the rest of us and through much of the day Wednesday where some could see 0.50 to 1 inch of rain. It will also be breezy with gusts to 25 mph.

If you're heading out shopping on Black Friday, plan on having an umbrella as we'll be tracking another round of rain. Highs will be in the low 40s but could fall depending on the timing of a cold front by the end of the week. ---Danielle Dozier
