Tuesday will also be a nice day with sunshine to start and some clouds moving in in the afternoon. Highs will reach near 50 degrees with east, northeast winds 5-15 mph. Tuesday night may bring some sprinkles but the bulk of the moisture will move in early Wednesday morning. Plan on a wet commute as moderate to heavy rain will be moving in from the south.
Rain will continue heavy at times through Wednesday evening as a strong low-pressure system moves in from the south. As cold air wraps around the low Wednesday evening, rain will change to snow. Right now models have this happening shortly after 7 p.m.
This same low pressure will not bring severe weather to Indiana but it will bring the threat of damaging winds, hail and tornadoes to those along the Gulf Coast on Tuesday. It might be a good idea to give your family and friends a heads up if they live in that area.
Around central Indiana, rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible early Wednesday morning through Wednesday evening.
It's too soon to tell exactly how much snow will fall because it will depend on the track of the low and when the transitition to snow will take place. However, at this time it looks like 1-3 inches of snow is possible in Indianapolis with higher amounts north. We'll keep you posted. Temperatures will fall through the week. Winds will also become strong Wednesday into Thursday with gusts as high as 40 mph.
