The weather pattern makes a change by the end of the week and the weekend, with milder air on the way.  Highs will be in the lower 40s on Friday and in the upper 40s and lower 50s this weekend.  Right now we have the forecast dry this weekend too.

Temperatures will fall into the upper 20 to near 30 degrees by Tuesday morning.

Pack An Umbrella

Posted By · December 8, 2014 at 3:25 am

Keeping an eye on Skytrak Doppler 13 radar this morning. Showers will be moving in from the west later today. If you are driving to Chicago, expect about an inch of snow today.  Take an umbrella as showers are possible by midday and more likely during the afternoon.  Highs hit the low 40s this afternoon before the rain arrives and then temperatures fall tonight behind a cold front.

 

On the back side of the front, expect a chance for a little wintry mix coming off of Lake Michigan on Tuesday.

 

A slow moving upper level low will spin over the northeast for several days and influence our weather into Friday.  This feature keeps clouds around and seasonably cold air around until next weekend.  An early look at Saturday and Sunday look pretty good with highs above average.

Showers and Colder Air Arrive Monday Afternoon

Posted By · December 7, 2014 at 4:33 pm

Despite the cloud cover temperatures were able to climb into the upper 30s and lower 40s in Central Indiana.

TEMPS PLANNER TONIGHT

The overcast will have more bark than bite with dry conditions expected overnight into Monday morning.

The blanket of clouds serve as insulation and keep temperatures locked into the 30s for the morning commute.  Take an umbrella when heading out tomorrow as showers are possible by midday and more likely during the afternoon.  Highs hit the low 40s before the rain arrives and then temperatures fall tomorrow evening behind a cold front.

Flurries and snow showers are fair game after sunset tomorrow as the cold air spills into the state.  Upper level energy and a flow off of Lake Michigan keep flurries and snow showers around Tuesday… which will be a rather chilly day in the mid-30s.

A slow moving upper level low will spin over the northeast for several days and influence our weather into Friday.  This feature keeps clouds around and seasonably cold air around until next weekend.  Have a great evening – Sean Ash

It was a foggy start this morning,with visibility reduced to less than a tenth of a mile in some locations this morning.  Here is a picture I took this morning in Johnson county.

Soggy conditions have arrived across central Indiana today.  The good news is, temperatures will remain above the freezing mark over the next 24 hours, making this a rain only event.  As the low pressure moves in closer this afternoon, rain will become heavy at times.
