Arctic air spills into Central Indiana overnight as clouds decrease and winds continue from the northwest. Temperatures should easily fall into the mid teens for Tuesday morning. Adding in a light wind will drop our feels like temperature to 5-8°F.
We’ll start Tuesday with plenty of sunshine but clouds will start to increase, especially for the afternoon hours. A stationary boundary remains to our south and clouds associated with that boundary will spill over into our area. You should notice high, thin clouds advancing by lunch town and thickening throughout the afternoon.
As for temperatures, we actually should see a nice increase when compared to our chilly Monday. Highs should climb to the 30 degree mark for the majority of the state. But this is still below normal because 35°F is the “normal” high for this time of year.
We aren’t looking at any big chances of snow or rain this week but that doesn’t mean we won’t see some minor events passing through the state. We could see some flurries early Wednesday morning. We’ll see a second chance for some brief snow showers Thursday morning as a weak cold front passes through the northern half of the state.
And there is some temporary good news for those of you who aren’t a fan of the bitterly cold temperatures. We should improve back into the mid 40s by Friday and Saturday. But this spell of more mild temperatures end on Sunday as another mass of cold air moves in from Canada.
