Today certainly won’t be a “chamber of commerce” like day across central Indiana as we deal with numerous mixed rain and snow showers. Already this morning, reports of wet snow are coming in to the forecast office from Whitestown, Lebanon, and Crawfordsville.
We’ll also add wind into the mix late morning through early evening, including gusts around 50 MPH. Factor in the much colder temperatures with gusty northerly winds and you have the makings for a truly “raw” day across the region. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory until 8pm.
We should finally get rid of the precipitation later tonight and after a chilly Friday, weekend improvements are coming. Lows both Friday and Saturday morning will be around freezing for most central Indiana neighborhoods. After a cloudy start Friday, sunshine should return Friday afternoon as drier air works into the region. With high pressure arriving this weekend, sunny conditions can be expected and with a southwest wind developing by Saturday afternoon, moderating temperatures are on deck as well.
In fact, after that cold start Saturday, highs should climb into the lower 60s Saturday afternoon and all the way into the lower to middle 70s Sunday afternoon!
Our next storm system will push into the Ohio Valley early next week with scattered showers and thunderstorms Monday into Tuesday.
