Melting Snow, Warming Temps, Severe Storms…A Wild Ride Ahead

Ready or not, here we go!

Severe T-Storms: The Storm Prediction Center has placed Indy points south under a “slight risk” of severe storms for Sunday night into early Monday morning including the risk of high winds, heavy rain, and isolated tornadoes.  This bears watching as a similar scenario to what played out last Monday night/Tuesday morning is setting up.  As you’ll recall that resulted in numerous severe t-storm warnings in Central Indiana and 3 tornadoes confirmed in Southern Indiana.  Timing looks like between 11pm (west) to 4am (east) for the most likely risk.  I’ll plan on staying late after our 11pm newscast to bring you weather updates via twitter, facebook, and on-air as warranted.

Wild Temperature Swings: Going with the “déjà vu all over again theme”, our temperatures may somewhat resemble what happened last week as well.  I expect you’ll wake up Sunday morning  to 20s with patchy fog (maybe even flurries or light freezing mist/drizzle), have lunch with fog/melting snow/flurries or drizzle and 30s, eat dinner with clouds/fog/drizzle and 40s, and go to bed with clouds/developing showers and around 50!  Our high will probably occur at midnight.  Then behind the storms, a cold front Monday will likely mean falling temperatures….so it may be around 50 at midnight,  40s in the morning, and 30s in the afternoon along with a few rain or snow showers possible.

Extended Outlook: We cool down briefly on Tuesday, then see a mild mid to late week. There might be a rain shower either Wednesday or Thursday, but chances are very low at this point.
