Tuesday will bring rain during the morning commute and during the early afternoon. Winds will gust to 25 mph with highs in the upper 50s. As the strong low pressure moves across the Plains winds will continue to increase across Indiana with gusts to 35 mph possible on Wednesday in Indy. While the rain will quit Tuesday evening for a while, it will move back in Wednesday morning and last through the afternoon. Rainfall totals of 1-2 inches are possible with higher amounts across the western part of the state.
Major flooding is not expected as it's been dry lately but some heavier downpours may lead to ponding in low-lying areas. Thunder is also possible on Wednesday but no severe weather is expected.
Thursday and Friday will be dry with a mostly sunny sky. Highs on Thursday will be in the mid-50s with highs only in the upper 40s Friday.
We're keeping our eyes on a clipper system that will move in Saturday. Cold air will move in as the system approaches from the northwest. Models bring in the potential for 0.10 inches of liquid which would equate to about 1 inch of snow using a 10:1 ratio. It's something we are watching closely as things will change!
It's turning colder too. Saturday and Sunday highs are forecast in the 30s with lows by Sunday morning in the low to mid-20s. Time to break out the winter gear if you haven't already! --Danielle Dozier
