Dry spell ends soon; rain, snow are on the way


So far this year, we’ve had 20 completely dry weekends. A cold front will move across the state Saturday. This will cause a few clouds to develop, but no precipitation is expected. We’ll stay dry through Sunday with lows near freezing and highs near 40 degrees.

Our next chance for snow showers will come Monday as a storm system moves across the Tennessee Valley. Most of the moisture with the system will stay south of the Hoosier state, and a few flurries will continue through the day. Expect a dry Tuesday, and as a warm front approaches the state, we’ll have a few showers Wednesday. Behind the warm front, highs will be near 50 degrees with dry weather Thursday.

Counting Down to Winter

The 30-day outlook for the month is calling for above average temperatures and below average precipitation. Winter begins on December 21, and by the end of the month, we start to gain 30 seconds of daylight each day.

Also on December 21, the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter will be visible in the southwestern sky. This will be the closest alignment of the two planets in almost 800 years.
