Clouds will reach central Indiana and as skies clear temperatures will warm into the 40s and stay in the 40s for Valentine’s Day.

Wintry Mix Stays South Tomorrow

It’s a gorgeous sunny Tuesday across Central Indiana and we’ll warm into the 40s this afternoon.

Tomorrow we’ve been tracking the chance of some morning wintry mix, but as expected, it appears the threat will stay well south of the Indy Metro. Some light mix might nudge as far north as Bedford and Brownstown to Columbus and Greensburg, with no accumulation expected. A heavier mix looks likely for folks from Evansville to Louisville.

Valentine’s Day is looking lovely! Highs surge to near 50 with breezy winds ahead of a strong cold front.

Behind the front, we get a reality check with highs in the 30s along with snow showers and flurries Friday, then highs in the 20s with a snow shower or two Saturday.

Wind Advisory This Afternoon

730368835

Winds could gust to 50 mph out of the southwest and west through the afternoon. That’s why a WIND ADVISORY is in effect. The winds are due to a strong area of low pressure spinning through the Great Lakes and passing to our north. Winds should diminish after sunset.

730367870

Our SkyTrak 13 WeatherBug Network shows gusts as high as 48 mph reported this morning! That’s been holding wind chills down in the 20s.

730405118

We’ll have cloudy skies from Indy points north and sunshine to the south today, but by late afternoon, skies should start to clear. Our official high actually occurred at just past midnight when we reached 51 degrees. Then, we fell to 37 by 11am. We’ll slowly climb this afternoon to around 42.

730402480

After a sunny Tuesday, Wednesday is a bit of a question mark. I have a hunch we’ll stay dry and turn milder, but a storm system that moves to our south could bring parts of Southern Indiana some wintry mix first thing Wednesday morning. A couple computer models do bring a touch of moisture as far north as Indy, so we’ll have to watch that storm carefully.

730401181

Your WTHR 7-Day forecast shows a moderating trend heading into Valentine’s Day with highs in the mid 40s. But a strong cold front moves in Friday bringing a chance of snow showers and flurries both Friday and Saturday. At this point it looks like little if any accumulation, but we’ll keep an eye on it. One thing that looks pretty certain is a big temperature plunge. We might not make it out of the 20s on Saturday!

Hold on to your hats…and have a great Monday afternoon,

730079424

A WIND ADVISORY covers much of Northern Indiana where wind gusts of 45 to 50 mph will be possible. In Central Indiana, gusts topping 40 mph are possible.

Temperatures will be cooler for your Monday with highs in the low 40s, but it will feel even cooler because of the wind.

729990454

Most of your 7-day is pretty quiet, but we’ll have to keep an eye on Wednesday when a storm system scoots to our south. If it nudges farther north, we might get a bit of wintry mix or rain. It’s looking more likely for some light snow or flurries on Friday followed by a major cool-down next weekend with highs only in the 20s by then.

Keep the rain gear handy today, scattered showers are likely across Central Indiana, especially as we head into the afternoon.

For the most part, this week looks quiet.  Our next chance of a rain/snow mix arrives Friday.

Rain on the Way

729553469

A storm moves in Sunday as rain in Missouri and Illinois pushes northeastward into Indiana. Temperatures which dropped below freezing late Saturday night should start to warm as we head into the morning, so we’re not expecting wintry precipitation in the Indy Metro. By morning, we’ll likely be in the mid 30s and 40s by midday on the way to highs in the low 50s.

In contrast, our friends in New England are digging out of the Blizzard of 2013. It was an impressive storm! 5th biggest for Boston and 2nd biggest for Hartford. Widespread 2-3 feet totals were reported. The list of rankings comes courtesy of the National Weather Service office in Boston.

Rain moves out by late Sunday night paving the way for a slightly cooler but mainly dry workweek. The exception may be Friday when a chance of flurries and snow showers moves in.
