Saturday at a glance

Mixed precipitation this weekend

Although, areas farther north will maintain the cooler temperatures and receive light snow for a brief period. This should not be a weather disrupter. But be ready for the ground to be a little wet when you wake up Sunday morning!

Sunday night showers

Temperatures dropping colder

A cold blast of arctic air will take over early next week. A frigid air mass dips pretty far south. It keeps these colder air temperatures in place over head in Indiana. A high pressure system will be passing near by, and that clockwise rotation will be driving colder air down to the surface, pulling it in from the north.
