At the time of this posting (just before 9pm Monday evening) temperatures remained in the 60s over much of Central Indiana...20-25° above average even at this hour.

But it's easy to find the approaching cold front upstream and the much colder air set ot embark on much of the eastern U.S. The front is also marked by a line of wind-whipped rain and some thunderstorms. Wind speeds up to 35-40mph are likely with gusts exceeding 40mph very possible.

The bulk of rainfall occurs between 11pm and 5am and expect rain amounts in the .25" to .75" range with wind gusts near/over 40mph at times heading into Tuesday morning.

Rain ends by 6am Tuesday and then we'll focus on the colder pattern getting started. Due to a brisk wind, it will feel 30-35° colder Tuesday with wind chills hovering near 30°... along with slight chance of evening flurries/snow showers.

Another cold front passes the state Wednesday night into Thursday with a chance of flurries/snow showers. But a more vigorous upper system arrives Friday night into Saturday and brings not only even colder air, but a chance of snow accumulation to Central Indiana.

At this time though it's impossible to determine the track/available moisture of the upper low...so snow amounts/location part of the forecast will have to wait. However confidence continues to grow that this cold will have some staying power and a persistent northwest flow aloft will deliver numerous chances of snow the next couple of weeks - Sean Ash
