Chilly temps, rain will stick around through Saturday

It's feeling more like March here in mid-May with temperatures a good 20 to 25 degrees below normal. Adding insult to injury will be occasional showers and areas of drizzle, although clouds have had more bark than bite this afternoon.

Clouds may partially clear overnight to allow temperatures to drop into the lower 40s and upper 30s for some. Rain increases by sunrise with possibly rumbles of thunder as a vigorous upper level cold-core low pivots across central Indiana, and sets the stage for a damp Friday. Temperatures underneath this feature tomorrow remain very chilly and highs will again struggle into the lower 50s... which is closer to the average low for this time of year.

The cooler than air lingers into the weekend though it modifies some. Near record lows and areas of frost are possible Saturday morning as lows drop into the mid and upper 30s area wide. Though Saturday may begin with sun, we fully expect a cumulus cloud deck to quickly build and isolated showers/sprinkles are possible during the afternoon.

Sunday will be brighter and milder with highs well into the 60s. A pleasant warming trend still looks on target next week and highs eventually soar into the middle 80s next Thursday. Hope you have a great evening despite the chilliness - Sean Ash
