INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Tuesday afternoon! Rain moved through this morning with 0.14 inches recorded in Indianapolis. The rain quickly departed by midday and it will remain cloudy through a good part of the afternoon and evening. We'll briefly clear out the sky overnight before more clouds build back in by Wednesday morning.

An upper-level wave will move through the area Wednesday and lead to a slight chance of snow showers in the evening. Not everyone looks to get snow and there's only one model showing it happening. Temperatures will be in the upper 30s during the day after a cold start in the upper 20s.

Thursday will be colder as an arctic front moves through the region. Temperatures will only be in the upper 20s for highs with a cloudy sky. Temperatures in the teens are expected by Friday morning.

We're monitoring a weekend storm system that looks to bring rain and snow to the area. A low-pressure system will move through and precipitation may start as snow Sunday morning before changing to rain and then back to snow through the day as air masses change. It also looks to turn windy with gusts to 35 mph. Stay tuned! --Danielle Dozier
