An active radar this Tuesday morning. Overnight, parts of Colorado picked up 1-3" of snow, while Utah had 53 mph wind gusts and eastern Missouri dealt with hail. Storms are now sliding through Illinois and into northern Indiana.
It's cool enough for a light jacket this morning. Take along an umbrella since we'll have a spotty rain chance. With highs in the upper 60s and an overcast sky, it'll feel a lot like it did on Monday.
Climate records show highs are normally in the upper 60s this time of year, so we are expecting to be fairly "normal" this Tuesday afternoon. Low 60s by lunchtime and continuing to warm all afternoon.
A few storms are possible on Wednesday. Some could roll in early, early Wednesday morning when many are still in bed. The wind will also noticeably pick up with gusts up to 30 mph.
A period of rain chances will linger into Thursday. Totals will be highest with storms and downpours northwest of Indianapolis. Expect lower totals south of the city. We are already above average rainfall for the year, so mud will continue to be a problem with no real opportunity to dry up over the next few days.
Temperatures are on the upswing Wednesday and Thursday as we climb back to the mid to low 70s. After more rain Thursday, we should finally have a day free of rain chances on Friday. It'll be a pleasant end to the week and a good opportunity for an Indians game at Victory Field. Right now rain is a concern for Saturday's Mini-Marathon.
