After a slick commute on Tuesday morning, we will once again have some early morning concerns as freezing fog is expected to develop on Wednesday morning.

Fog could become dense in some places.  At this point it looks like places from Indianapolis down to the southwest will have the best chance to see some fog overnight.  Obviously any untreated roadways that were missed this morning will have the potential for having a few slick spots overnight.  Caution is advised on your morning commute, especially if you travel along rural roadways.

Rest of the work week:

Wednesday will be dry and likely the first day where we will see some sunshine this week.  We will have to wait for it for a bit though as fog will be around through the 9 am hour.  Once the fog burns off I think we will see some sunshine before we once again cloud up later in the afternoon hours.  Highs will near 40 degrees.

Thursday will see a late day chance for rain with the rest of the day seeing a split of sun and clouds.  Highs on Thursday should reach the low 40s.  Rain chances will just be getting going on Thursday with most of the rain expected to fall on Friday morning.  At this point we are forecasting highs on Friday morning into the 20s with rain coming down.  If this occurs we could see another mess on area roads with untreated roads leading to slick road conditions.  We will continue to monitor the situation.

This weekend:

It will be warmer, with the potential for some rain on Saturday.  Model data is not in agreement on what we should expect.  For right now I am keeping Saturday dry.  That could change as more data comes in.  Saturday and Sunday highs should hit the middle 40s.  This means another decent couple of weekend days conducive to putting up those Christmas lights.
