Temperatures going back up

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

A chilly day in central Indiana as temperatures only topped out in the 20°s and 30°s - running 15° to 20° below normal - Sunday.  We should see an end to the really cold temperatures, at least for a few days.

Temperatures tonight will drop down to the teens and lower 20°s but the lows should be achieved between 11pm and 1am.  After 1am, temperatures should begin to slowly rise as winds increase out of the south 12-17mph.

Mostly sunny skies should be the rule Monday, with a few clouds drifting through during the day.  Temperatures should top out in the middle 30°s to lower 40°s.

CHILLY MORNING

Temperatures dropped to the single digits to teens across central Indiana Sunday morning.  The coldest temperatures came from areas in the snow pack left from Saturday's storm.

WARM TURKEY

An upper-level low is projected to move down the Rocky's and set-up shop in the southwest United States early this week.  A cold front will eventually emerge and move east across the central Plains.  Ahead of the front, southerly and southwesterly winds should allow temperatures to rebound back to the 50°s Wednesday through Friday.

Projection of upper-level winds and surface temperatures Thursday afternoon.

At this point, the cold front should hang far enough west to not bring rain to central Indiana for Thanksgiving.  It appears Friday will be the day the front brings rain to the state.  A two computer model average suggests 0.53" of rain for Indiana Friday morning through late Friday night.  As of now, I do not think Friday will be all day rain, but early morning and evening looks wet.  Stay tuned for further forecasts.
