HIGHS

Spring begins at 12:57pm on Thursday.  It will feel like Spring for 2 days.  We have highs in the 50s on Thursday and in the 60s on Friday.

EVENT

This week is also severe weather and flood preparedness week.  As part of this week, there will be a statewide tornado drill on Thursday.  The drill will happen once in the morning and once in the evening.  It is a great opportunity to practice your plan for severe weather at home, work and school.  The SkyTrak 13 Weather Team is here to keep you and your family safe, during severe weather.  If you are away from home during a severe weather event, you can still stay informed on the go at wthr.com or on the SkyTrak13 Weather App for your smartphone.

DRILL

After 60s on Friday, we are tracking cooler air for the weekend.  There will be a cold front moving through central Indiana later Friday night.  A few showers are possible along this front, but the bigger story will be the drop in temperature.  Highs will be in the 40s on Saturday and only in the 30s on Sunday.  This unusual chill will last through early next week.
