COLD START TO THE WEEK
Clear skies tonight and the influence of high pressure in the northern Plains will allow temperatures to drop in to the teens in much of central Indiana. Some computer models suggest temperatures dropping a few more degrees than what I’m forecasting, however with wind around, I think temperatures will not completely bottom out.
With the wind, wind chill values will drop to the single digits and some locales could go below zero near sunrise Monday.
The weather should be quiet for central Indiana for the next couple days. There is a weather system we are watching that could bring snow to northern Indiana. Another system could bring a wintry mix (snow, sleet, rain) to the area Thursday evening.
Then one more system passes Friday night and Saturday. There is quite a bit uncertainty with this system as there are timing and location details that still need to be worked out. Stay tuned!
