Rain Marks Cold Change

Hope you enjoyed the balmy beginning to December if you’re a fan of spring warmth.  As expected, rain marched into Central Indiana by late morning…and will linger into early afternoon.  Don’t forget you can track the drops yourself with Live Doppler 13 Radar.  Temperatures are going in reverse due to the passage of a cold front.  Though most locations are in the 40s/lower 50s, daytime highs actually hit the lower 60s.

This is only the 2nd December since 1871 to begin with four straight days at or above 60°…capped-off by the record-tying 69° on Monday.

So long 60s, and hello to December reality.  After the soggy midday, we expect to be rain-free by 3-4pm…and may actually finish the day with some welcomed sunshine!

Without cloud cover serving as a blanket tonight, temperatures will drop to their lowest levels since late last week.

Due to the prolonged stretch of unseasonably warm weather, low/mid 30s will be a little shock to the system.  Highs tomorrow will be seasonably cool in Central Indiana.  Notice there will be nearly a 10° difference from Muncie to Terre Haute, due to proximity of core colder air across Michigan.

Wednesday and Thursday will be our brightest days for some time.  Long-range guidance continues to indicate an active pattern developing over the OhioValley/Great Lakes region.  For now, it appears the I-70 corridor will be on the warmer side of an air mass battle zone… resulting in an unseasonably warm weekend.  But make no mistake, it will also be a rather wet weekend.  Several inches of rain will be possible in the viewing area into Monday afternoon.

Have a great day and thanks for visiting the blog!
