Tricky Sunday Forecast

The Sunday forecast is a complicated one, but at least it will be warmer.  Here are the numbers from Saturday…low:  27 and high:  41.

It will be a cold Saturday night, as temperatures fall fast into the upper 20s and lower 30s by midnight.  Central Indiana is under another freeze warning.

Clouds will increase after midnight and so will the temperatures, as a warm front arrives.  Along that warm front, there will be a light wintry mix possible from about 4am to 10am Sunday.

It will be a soggy and stormy Monday, with highs in the 50s.  We dry out and cool back into the upper 40s and lower 50s for Tuesday.  After Tuesday, we track a major weather pattern change.  It will be sunny and warmer of the end of the week and we get close to 70 degrees by Friday.

Freeze Warning, Flurries and Wind Chills in the Teens

This is how we are going to start the weekend…freeze warning, flurries and wind chills in the teens Saturday morning.

Steadier bursts of snow might be enough to cover the ground in a few places.  Saturday morning temperatures will be in the range of 24-28 degrees.  This isn’t quite record cold, as the record is 18 in 1997.  Wind chills will be in the teens Saturday morning.

Temperatures don’t recover much on Saturday, with highs only forecast near 40 degrees.  For most of central Indiana, high temperatures on Saturday will be colder than the average low of 41 degrees.

A warm front arrives early Sunday.  There is a chance for a few hours of a wintry mix Sunday morning.  There will be some dry hours from about 10am to 5pm Sunday, with highs in the 50s.  It will be a milder end to the weekend.  Rain and storms arrive Sunday night and will linger into Monday.

Friday Night Forecast

There will be wind driven rain, sleet and snow through about 9pm Friday.  As temperatures fall, this wintry mess will change to snow showers.  There will be a few bursts of steadier snow overnight and early Saturday.  Where we get those bursts of snow, a quick coating of snow will be possible.  The best chance for this looks to be north and east of Indianapolis.  RPM2RPM3RPMRPM1

Central Indiana is also under a freeze warning through Saturday morning, as forecast lows are in the middle 20s.  It won’t be record cold.  The record for Saturday morning is 18 in 1997 and we are forecasting 26.  With the winds NNW near 20mph, wind chills will be in the teens early Saturday.

Below Freezing and More Rain Sleet and Snow

It will be partly cloudy and cold overnight, with lows in the upper 20s and lower 30s.  It is cold enough for most of central Indiana to be under a freeze warning.  We are forecasting the next 3 nights to be below freezing.

Your Friday forecast includes more rain, sleet and snow.

PLANNER

These mixed showers will develop by late morning and last through Friday night.  A few steadier bursts of snow are possible too.  The best chance for these bursts of snow will be north and east of Indianapolis and may produce a quick coating of snow.

Thursday Forecast

Rain and a few rumbles of thunder will continue through the Thursday morning commute.  With rain in the Thursday morning forecast, the morning drive might be a little slower than usual.

rpm rpm1

We expect a break from the widespread heavy rain by noon Thursday.  We are concerned with this break from the rain because it may give the atmosphere enough time to destabilize.  If this happens, a few strong or severe storms will be possible after 2pm Thursday.  We are under the risk for severe weather.

 

rpm2 rpm3rpm4rpm5

We will watch any and all storm development closely.  Right now hail is one of the biggest threats with storms that do develop.  Damaging winds and tornadoes can’t be ruled out.
