Sun Today, Showers Tomorrow

Another bright, blue sky to greet you after 8am this morning.  Temperatures are running about 5° warmer than Thursday mornings pace.  A warmer start will lead to a warmer finish.

Highs today will top 50° in many backyards in Central Indiana.  This will be the 6th day in December at or above 50°, which matches the monthly average!  This all part of an unseasonably warm month, where the average temperature of 44.7° is over 10° above normal.

A storm system currently over the southwestern United States will make quite a move over the next 24 hours… rapidly pushing a shield of rain into the state by late morning Saturday.  For now it appears the timing of highest rain chances will be from 10am to 4pm Saturday.

Current modeling indicates the steadiest, most widespread rain should pivot east of the state by Saturday evening.  This will pave the way for mostly dry conditions the rest of the weekend.  The biggest change you’ll notice in the 7day forecast is the upgraded high temperature on Sunday.  The aforementioned storm system will move farther north, as opposed to east, and delay the passage of a cool front.  This will allow a persistent southwest wind to push daytime highs to near 60° Sunday afternoon!  The record for the day is 65°.  That should be safe, but temperatures will be a good 20° above normal!

Have a great day and even better weekend!
