Colder Times Loom; Late Weekend System…

screen-shot-2016-11-29-at-6-18-37-pmHighlights:

  • Second half of the work week trends colder
  • Late weekend wintry system?
  • Next storm looms next week

Temperatures Trend Downward…Moisture will lift northeast late tonight into Wednesday and could push light showers as far west at the Indy metro late tonight and early Wednesday morning.  Better coverage of showers will be found across east and southeast portions of the state Wednesday morning.  While highs Wednesday should top out in the lower to middle 50s for most central IN neighborhoods, temperatures will begin to slip during the afternoon and evening hours as colder air slowly oozes in.  The cooler trend will continue as we wrap up the work week.

All eyes will then shift to the weekend and a potential storm system Sunday.  Model data continues to differ significantly on the all-important details.  For now we’ll spare you from the nerdy meteorological lingo 😉 and lean towards increasing clouds Saturday evening with a cold rain or a wintry mix developing Sunday afternoon.  Should more energy come out and “phase,” this will become a system that will require more attention in the days ahead.  Stay tuned.  Any early wintry mix will depart Monday morning and we’ll briefly dry out into Tuesday.

By that point, another storm system will require our attention later next week.  Additional wintry prospects loom along with the first true shot of Old Man Winter just beyond this particular forecast period.
