Slight Shower Chance Next 24 HoursBy
For many in the viewing area it’s been a mostly sunny mild Sunday, with highs in the 70s south of I-70.
But due to a front draped over central Indiana, and increased cloud in the northern third of the state, temperatures are 15 to 20 degrees cooler for areas from Lafayette to Marion.
This front will also help trigger a few passing showers the next 24 hours… though many backyards will stay dry. We’ve advertised the warmest air of the year for several days, and it remains in the 7 day forecast.
Lows tonight will range from the lower 40s up north to the lower 50s south. Central Indiana will experience another impressive temperature tomorrow due to the aforementioned front lingering through the area. Highs will be mainly in the 70s for central and southern Indiana Monday and Tuesday, but significantly cooler (60s) for north-central Indiana. The passage of a warm front Tuesday night opens the gates to our first 80 degree day since October. This air mass will be an equal opportunity warmth provider, as many cities in the state hit their highest readings in some seven months.
Upper level ridging in the jet stream results in strong sinking over the Ohio Valley mid-week. As a result we’ll have a hazy/sunny sky and unseasonably warm highs Wednesday/Thursday in the mid-80s.
Our next widespread rain/storm chance arrives late Thursday night into Friday. Have a great evening.
