Tracking morning sprinkles; much colder air ahead

Noon Update: Rain is exiting Indiana and some clouds are left over but the cold front is passing through now and dry air will pour in and clear out our sky for a sunny afternoon.  High pressure will keep us mainly clear for Friday night which means a cold Saturday morning.


Tracking a few sprinkles this morning, but no heavy downpours expected for Indianapolis today.  We'll have a few raindrops throughout the morning commute; the bulk of the rain will stay south of Bloomington. Dry air will push into Indiana later today with the passage of a cold front, leaving us with sunshine for the afternoon.

High pressure will slide in to give us a cold and quiet Friday night with a cold Saturday morning and plenty of sunshine for all of Saturday.

As the cold front slides through Indiana this morning we'll have isolated sprinkles. The rain is very limited and confined to the morning hours.  Expect temps to stay comfortably cool through lunchtime and then drop as we see more sunshine and the wind shifts to the north.

Rain totals today are only about a hundredth of an inch but more like a half inch for the rain we'll get Sunday night into Monday.  Flurries are possible on Tuesday, but it is too early to put out confident snow total forecasts at this point.  I will say that early model runs keep the snow to literally just flurries and no signals towards shoveling with that system.

Sunday will be mild for the season but cloudy and breezy, so you'll still want a coat.  Rain could arrive as early as Sunday afternoon; most of us won't see rain until Sunday night.  An active weather day is expected on Monday with rain on and off.  Colder air pumps in Tuesday for a few flurries and then temperatures plummet on Wednesday and stay very cold on Thursday.  Overnight lows then will be in the teens will single-digit wind chills.
