Polar Plunge On The Way


You've got one more day to enjoy temperatures some 20° above average before the temperature pendulum swings in a much colder direction.

Highs Monday in the mid-60s will be closer to the daily record (70° / 1998) for December 4th than the average (43°). This marks the 10th straight day of above average temperatures in Central Indiana.

Though there's a chance of spotty, quick-moving showers early Monday morning... most places remain dry until late Monday evening. We expect rain with embedded thunderstorms to become widespread by 11pm Monday night and shut down from west-to-east before sunrise Tuesday. This batch of rain marks the transition to colder air Tuesday in the first of several cold fronts to move across the state over the next 10 days.

Another front arrives Wednesday night but a stronger surge of colder air comes into play Friday night into Saturday morning. This front may be accompanied by a stronger piece of upper energy which brings put accumulating snow in play to start the weekend.

At this time it's too early to feel confident on the snow portion of the medium range due to uncertainty on strength/moisture/track. But we're very confident on temperatures some 15° below average - Sean Ash
