Freezing Temps to Start Your Monday!By
It’s been two straight days of unseasonably cold weather with highs only in the 50s. Monday will make 3 in-a-row. But with skies finally clearing overnight, temperatures will be dropping into the low to mid 30s by morning. That’s cold enough to cause damage to sensitive plants. A FREEZE WARNING continues from 4 to 8am for much of Central and Northern Indiana, NOT including Indy. But if you’re in the ‘burbs, it’s fair game that you could wake up to a freeze.
You may not notice frost on your plants in the morning, however, because winds overnight will stay up out of the north 10-15 mph. Frost has difficulty forming if it’s windy. But due to the wind, wind chills in the morning will be in the 20s for kids at the bus stop and people heading to work.
How cold where you live? Not quite a freeze for Indy, but most outlying spots could fall to 31-32 by morning.
We’ll rebound into the upper 50s by afternoon with windy conditions – gusts over 30 mph out of the northwest will be possible. But consider us “lucky.” Farther east where a Nor’easter is moving up the coast of New England, inland snows in Western New York and Pennsylvania could pile up 6-10″ of the white stuff!
We’ll stay dry ’til late Tuesday. There’s a chance of showers by then. A good chance of scattered showers and storms will arrive Wednesday and could linger into early Thursday. We get a brief break before more rain is possible late Friday into Saturday. We could get more showers and storms on Sunday.
In the next 7 days, there’s only one day where above average temperatures are expected: Wednesday (which just so happens to be our wettest day of the week as well). The average high for Wednesday is 67. I’m forecasting 68.
Guess this is payback for all those 80s we had in March! This too shall pass…
