Springlike Warmth, Rain, Snow, and the Return to WinterBy
Temperatures today have soared into the 50s, which is more like March than late January. We’ve also had more than a quarter inch of rain, with more drizzle and occasional showers likely through the day today and again tomorrow. Tomorrow, the warmth builds, with near record highs possible! Our record tomorrow is 66 set in 2002. I’m forecasting 64.
We’ll have showers during the day, then at night, as a strong cold front approaches, we’ll watch a line of strong to severe storms move through accompanied by 1-2″+ of rain.
With so much rain possible, the National Weather Service has hoisted Flood Watches for much of Central Indiana where heavy rain could cause rising rivers and flash flooding.
Behind the front, Wednesday brings falling temps which will start in the 50s in the morning and fall into the 30s. That means rain may end as some light snow. Right now, it doesn’t look like much more than a coating if that.
We end the week with a return to bitter temps.
Finally, our Hoosier Pic today is my new bundle of joy! I’ve had a great time bonding with little Zailey while on maternity leave!
