INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 21, 2016)--Good Sunday afternoon! It was another nice day across central Indiana after morning showers and storms to our south. Clouds cleared out through much of the day as temperatures rose into the mid-50s. Clouds will build back in tonight with lows down to freezing. There may be some areas of patchy fog. Wear the coats out the door Monday morning!
Morning clouds should give way to afternoon sunshine with temperatures just a bit cooler than today. Highs will be in the mid-40s on Monday with an east, northeast wind 5-10 mph.
Tuesday will also be nice with highs in the upper 40s under a mostly sunny sky. However, things will change as we go into Wednesday. A low-pressure system will move in from the south. Wednesday looks to bring rain with a changeover to snow late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. Temperatures on Wednesday will be in the low to mid-40s with strong east, northeast winds 10-20 mph with higher gusts.
As colder air wraps around the system once it departs, snow will be with us on Thursday with highs in the mid-30s and strong west, northwest winds 15-25 mph with higher gusts. It's too early to tell at this time exactly how much rain or snow will fall because it will depend on the track of the low. Current model guidance suggests the potential of 1-2 inches of rain in spots and a couple inches of snow for parts of central Indiana. We'll keep you posted.
Temperatures will jump back up to the low 40s by Saturday but should fall as a strong cold front moves in. Expect lows in the mid-teens next Sunday morning with highs near 30 degrees. --Danielle Dozier
