There’s a chance for rain Monday as a weak and slow moving front will slide through the area this afternoon into the evening and overnight hours.  Model data is coming in with a forecast of only about a tenth of an inch of rain for Indianapolis.  There is no threat of severe weather

The main thing most will notice as we head into the afternoon will be an increase in cloud cover.  Clouds will be around for most of the day with winds coming in from the south at around 10 – 15 mph.  Skies will turn overcast this afternoon with a chance for rain north of Indianapolis.  Indianapolis could see rain as soon as 4 p.m. even though I think rain will hold off until after 6 p.m.  The front will pass through between 2–5 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

Small Regional Radar

Rain chances go up overnight

The area should clear out relatively fast behind the cold front with temperatures cooler on Tuesday.  Highs should hit the low 60s for the day with highs in the mid to low 60s on Wednesday.  This period will be dry and pleasant with some cooler mornings.  You may need to grab the jacket as you’re heading out.

At this point it looks like the rest of the week will be warmer and pleasant.  Highs on Thursday and Friday should be in the mid-70s.  While my confidence right now is low, it also appears that Saturday will also see temperatures in the mid-70s.  There is data out there that points to a much cooler Saturday, but at this point it appears the warmer solution is the one most likely to occur.  Enjoy your day!
