Heavy Rain to Snow Tuesday - Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog

Lindsey Monroe

Rain has mainly been contained to the southern part of the state so far today but will become more widespread this evening.

Temperatures hold steady in the upper 30s/lower 40s through the afternoon and evening.

Rain begins to lift northward and becomes widespread through central Indiana by 8 PM.

Heavy rain will be likely through the state during the overnight and into early Tuesday as a warm front lifts through.

Tuesday will be a transitional day as a warm front lifts in early taking temperatures into the mid-40s. Then a swift-moving cold front begins to drop temperatures into the 30s in the afternoon. That's when we're going from rain to snow as colder air returns

Many locations get a new 1" to 2" of rain through the day and overnight keeping the flooding threat high.

A Flood Watch remains in effect for areas along and south of I-70 through Tuesday morning.

Temperatures will climb into the low to mid 40s during the first part of the day Tuesday. Pockets of heavy rain will be possible along a cold front around midday.

Temperatures fall back into the 30s behind a cold front after lunchtime and rain will begin to transition to snow.

The snow won't amount to much -- but a quick burst of snow could bring a dusting to less than 1" through Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

It'll also be windy with gusts possibly exceeding 40 mph Tuesday night. Temperatures fall into the lower 20s with wind chills in the single digits and temps near 20 by Wednesday morning.

After a quiet, brighter Wednesday with highs in the upper 30s, temperatures soar into the 50s Thursday into early Friday. It gets sloppy again Thursday night as long-range weather models disagree on when arctic air moves in to change rain to snow during the course of the day on Friday.

Light accumulations will be possible, so make sure to check back for Friday and Saturday plans.
