Rain Changing To Snow

Posted By · April 14, 2014 at 9:46 pm

By the late evening hours of Monday, temperatures had dropped into the 30s.  We are starting to get reports of the rain mixing with sleet in Westfield and Brownsburg.  The change from rain and sleet to snow will happen overnight, as temperatures fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s.  Any accumulations of snow will be minor and mostly on grassy areas or a rooftop or 2.

RADAR TONIGHT

Tuesday will be dry, but very cold for the middle of April.  Highs are only forecast in the upper 30s and lower 40s.  To put this in perspective, the average low is 42 degrees.  If you have sensitive plants and flowers that you want to protect, it would be a good idea to cover them tonight and tomorrow night.

DAYPART Highs

We do get a break from this unusual chill by mid-week.  Highs return to the 50s on Wednesday and the 60s on Thursday.  Rain chances return for the end of the week.  We will keep you updated on the timing for Friday and the weekend.  Right now we have highs forecast in the range of 55-60 degrees for Friday through Easter Sunday.  Some of the latest analysis hints at a warmer air mass, so we might get to bump the forecast temperatures up.

The weekend is here and there are lots of local activities from Race for the Cure to the first Indy Eleven soccer game.  Our Indianapolis Indians are also at Victory Field.  Here is the good news…the weather will be warm for any of your outdoor activities this weekend.  Highs will be in the middle and upper 70s on Saturday and Sunday.

EVENT Highs

As that push of warmer air arrives on Saturday, a stray shower might develop.  We are only expecting to have 1 or 2 show up on the radar maybe Saturday afternoon.  Don’t cancel any weekend plans.  Most of the weekend will be dry, with a mix of clouds and sun.

We are tracking a developing storm system for the end of the weekend and early next week.  This will bring the threat for heavy rain and a few storms to central Indiana late Sunday night and Monday.

Highs will be in the 60s on Monday, but that will happen early in the day with temperatures falling into the 40s by later in the day Monday.

The rain moves out, but it will be cooler on Tuesday with highs only in the range of 45-50 degrees.  This chill only lasts one day, as temperatures rebound into the 50s close to 60 degrees by Wednesday.
