  • Lots of sunshine for Super Bowl Sunday
  • Rain and storms early week
  • Mid week snow

Beautiful Super Bowl Sunday; Changes Await…We suggest taking your pregame Super Bowl parties outside today to enjoy what’ll be a rare sunny day!  Temperatures will also be milder today, topping out in the upper 40s.

Unfortunately, the sunny skies won’t last as clouds increase Monday morning and showers move in by afternoon.  As surface low pressure tracks into the Great Lakes, heavier rains and embedded thunderstorms will increase Monday night into Tuesday morning.  A couple of these storms could become strong to severe, and include strong and damaging winds and hail.  Colder air will pour into Indiana on gusty northwest winds Tuesday night behind the frontal passage.

Our attention will then shift to a colder regime for mid week.  We have to iron out the details, but forecast models suggest an area of low pressure will scoot across the central Plains to the East Coast Wednesday into Thursday.  This will spread moisture north into the colder air mass and the result may be a swath of accumulating snow north of the low’s track, including central Indiana.  We’ll be left with very cold air to wrap up the work week.

Next weekend, the “tug of war” regime will continue.  Southwest winds will usher in milder conditions Saturday with showers.

Upcoming 7-Day Precipitation Forecast:

  • Snowfall: 1″ – 2″
  • Rainfall: 0.75″ – 1.25″
