Good Wednesday, everyone. Winter gave us another shock to the system yesterday with snow, blowing snow and very cold temps. I’m finally seeing a different look to the overall pattern over the next few weeks. It’s one that brings milder and wetter days our way.
Thermometers today are starting out near record territory in the mid teens. Sunny skies today will boost temps into the upper 30s to around 40 for highs.
Thursday will see a milder wind blowing as temps head into the 50s and make a run toward 60. Clouds will increase and showers and thunderstorms move in Thursday night into Friday:
Locally heavy rain will be a good bet early Friday, but afternoon clearing should mean a better ending to the day. Winds will be rather gusty with temps in the low 60 range. Wildcat fans heading to Indianapolis should expect similar conditions for Friday.
The break in the rain won’t be long as low pressure works right on top of us for Saturday:
Colder air will move in for Sunday with another mild-up lurking for early in the week.
The pattern next week will feature several systems pushing across our region. Each of these will bring some showers and thunderstorms. While this is a much better pattern, it’s still not one that is very pretty. Up and down temperatures and frequent bouts of precipitation look to be the norm over the next few weeks. I could even see a situation that could give us one last shot of snowflakes.
I will stop right there.
