Cool, Breezy Weekend Continues, Plus Sandy’s Possible Effects on Indiana

A FREEZE WARNING is in effect from 3am to 9am for parts of South-Central Indiana. The reason we don’t have a freeze warning for the rest of Central Indiana is we’ve already seen freezing temps this season. Plan on near-freezing wake-up temps the next couple mornings.

Sunday’s highs will be around 10 degrees cooler than average despite mostly sunny skies. We’ll also have breezy winds out of the north 10-20 mph.

As we head into Tuesday and Wednesday, we’ll have to watch closely the impact of Sandy. After making landfall on the East Coast – projected Monday evening between the Delmarva Peninsula and the New Jersey Coast – Sandy will weaken and lose tropical characteristics, but the circulation is likely to wrap in cold air which could bring significant snow into the mountains of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Some computer models are backing in the clouds, wind, and cool air as far west as Indiana. Some rain showers could nudge into Central Indiana and there’s even the slight possibility of some snowflakes (in blue on FutureTrak13) working westward into Eastern/Northeastern Indiana Tuesday or Wednesday. This bears watching for sure. For the latest on Sandy from the National Hurricane Center:

Sandy’s influence fades by Thursday and we’ll finally start warming up. We could see at or above average temps by next weekend. For now, it looks like a dry Monumental Marathon forecast next Saturday with start temps in the upper 30s.
