Wet Start To The Work Week; Taste Of Winter This Weekend…

Highlights:

  • Wet, gloomy open to the work week
  • Dry midweek
  • Much colder this weekend
  • First flakes of the season

Rain Gear Required…Low pressure will track through the Ohio Valley and into the Great Lakes between now and Tuesday morning.  This will result in a wet day, including periods of moderate to heavy rain.  Once the cold front slips through central Indiana, we’ll notice slowly falling temperatures this afternoon.  We’ll throw in a gusty NW breeze tonight into Tuesday with showers and chilly conditions remaining in place.

Drier air will work in for the midweek stretch.  After patchy frost Wednesday, a cool, crisp day is on tap with increasing sunshine.  Thursday will feature strong and gusty southwest winds (gusts over 40 MPH), but dry conditions ahead of an approaching cold front.  That cold front will blow through here Friday with a band of showers and sharply colder air to end the work week.

The air will turn cold enough to end the growing season this weekend across central Indiana.  Additionally, a combination of upper level energy and reinforcing cold air Sunday will interact with the unseasonably warm lake waters to help generate scattered snow showers and flurries.  When we compare this upcoming Sunday to yesterday, it’ll add insult to injury as temperatures will be more than 30° colder…
