  • “Raw” weather today
  • Increasing weekend sunshine
  • Patchy frost Saturday morning

Wet And Chilly Today…An area of low pressure will track northeast along the Ohio River, into the interior portions of the Northeast between now and Friday.  Additionally, a cold front will continue to press southeast today.  The combination of these ingredients will equal a wet, raw, and breezy day across central IN.  (Definitely NOT a chamber of commerce day).  Temperatures will remain nearly steady through the daytime hours before sliding off relatively quickly tonight.

We’ll wrap up the work week and head into the weekend with increasing sunshine, but the coolest air of the fall season thus far.  Temperatures will grow chilly enough Saturday morning to present a patchy frost threat for outlying areas away from the metro.

Winds will increase Sunday as our next cold front approaches.  The air mass ahead of this front is very dry so we’re not expecting much, if any, precipitation with this next frontal passage (FROPA), but it will serve to offer up reinforcing cool air early next week.

The next storm system that could offer up rain will arrive Wednesday evening.  From this distance, it doesn’t appear to be a heavy rain event.

Upcoming 7-Day Precipitation Forecast:

  • Snowfall: 0.00″
  • Rainfall: 0.75″ – 1.50″
