2 Chances for Flurries and Snow Showers

There is a fast moving weather system in eastern Iowa now.  The latest analysis of a high resolution model shows this thin line of flurries and snow showers moving into central Indiana later this evening around 10pm.  This model also shows a thin line of light snow possible across the southern half of the state early Thursday morning.  This will show up as green on the map, but it is snow.  Any accumulations will be minor, but a quick coating is possible.

There will be another round of flurries and snow showers later Thursday afternoon and evening.  Again any accumulations will be minor and should only amount to a quick coating.

Cold Today, Great Weekend

Temperatures yesterday dropped during the afternoon and it is still cold this morning. Temperatures are in the 20s but we’ll warm up to the freezing mark later today. It’s an eventful day ,because this will be the coldest day for the next week and the last of the below average days for some time. We are forecasting more clouds than sunshine over the next couple of days.  Highs will be in the range of 35-40 on Thursday. Not a bad night, by the way, to go to see Butler take on DePaul tonight.

We are tracking a weak and fast moving weather system for Thursday.  There will be a few flurries or snow showers possible, but we aren’t forecasting the snow to stick.

The bigger story in the forecast is the warm-up.  Highs will be in the lower 50s on Saturday and Sunday.  As the next weather system arrives later Sunday into early next week, it will be rain and not snow with the mild weather pattern.

Rain And Not Snow… For Now

Much colder air returns by sunrise Tuesday as temperatures settle into the lower 30s.  This is where they’ll stay all day tomorrow due to overcast and a steady northwest wind in the 15 to 30mph.  Flurries are possible for the morning commute, but expect a better chance to see snow showers during afternoon and early evening hours.

Wind chills return to the 10 to 15 degree range Wednesday morning with a shot of seasonably cold air.  Highs in the 20s mid-week climb to near 40 degrees Thursday and Friday.  We continue to call for highs at or above 50 Saturday when we’ll have sunshine and a stiff southwest wind.

Colder air returns behind the front Tuesday with flurries, snow showers and highs near freezing.  Seasonably cold air lingers into Wednesday with flurries.  Current modeling suggests will be on the warmer side of several clipper-type systems later in the week.  As a result highs should near 40 degrees Thursday and Friday.
