Spring-like Today, Winter-like Sunday

The wind has eased quite a bit this morning.  It will be a beautiful Saturday with highs in the low to mid 50s.


It will be partly cloudy tonight with breezy winds out of the northeast from 5 to 15 mph.  Lows will fall into the mid 20s.

An area of low pressure will push in from the Southern Plains states.  It will tap into moisture from the Gulf of Mexico allowing a wintry mix of rain, sleet and snow to develop across Southern Indiana by late Sunday morning.  At this point, the storm track appears to keep most of the moisture south of a Bloomington-Columbus, Batesville line.  There is a chance that this system could move up as far north as I-70.  If that happens, light snow will be possible Sunday afternoon into the evening.  But as of this morning, Sunday will be dry but cloudy and breezy.


sunday forecast

The system will scoot out by Sunday night and the wind will die down.  Temperatures will tumble into the upper teens Monday morning with temperatures struggling to climb into the upper 30s Monday afternoon.  It will be a crisp by sunny St. Patrick’s Day.  The St. Patrick’s Day parade in Downtown Indy gets off at 11:30am with the temperature in the low 30s.

More mild conditions arrive by mid week with a chance of rain on Wednesday.
