INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Monday afternoon! It's been a cloudy, cool and damp day with showers and temperatures in the 50s. We've even had some cold air funnel clouds spotted in Anderson. Check out the pic below from Fox 59 viewer Tiffani Brock.

Cold air funnels are high-based weak circulations that form in relatively cold air aloft. Typically they are associated with strong low pressure systems and cold fronts. They rarely touch the ground and become tornadoes and rarely cause damage.

Tonight we'll have showers around until at least midnight and areas of fog developing. Temperatures will drop to the upper 40s as a cold front moves through. Wednesday will bring a decrease in cloud cover and highs in the upper 60s with a northeast wind 5-10 mph.

High pressure will be the rule for Thursday too with plenty of sunshine and highs near 70 degrees.

Models have consistently brought a low pressure into the area from the south Friday into Saturday but the latest model runs have shifted the track farther south. That said, we'll carry a slight chance of rain and t-storms Friday and Saturday and see what models say as the time gets closer. The low really starts to develop to our east into next week setting up a northwest flow pattern. This will lead to dry and sunny conditions Sunday through at least Tuesday of next week. Highs will climb to the 80s by Tuesday. --Danielle Dozier
