Another mild day is shaping up through central Indiana with a mix of sun and clouds through the afternoon as temperatures warm into the 40s.

The snow pack will impact the northern tier of the state keeping temperatures down. Look for highs in the lower 40s where there is snow on the ground (due to sunlight reflection vs. absorption).

Mid 40s along the I-70 corridor and highs top out in the upper 40s to areas south.

We stay mainly cloudy overnight with lows near 30.

The morning drive looks to be in good shape as dry air will limit rain chances.

Rain showers will be most likely by lunchtime with scattered showers continuing through most of the day.

Showers will become more numerous by the lunch hour, especially to areas north.

A warm front will move through in the late afternoon so temperatures will peak later in the day.

The heaviest of the rain arrives just before the cold front Monday evening.

Widespread rain will be likely as the cold front moves through -- here's 12 a.m. Tuesday. This will also be the "warmest" part of the day on Tuesday as the front brings in cooler air.

By daybreak Tuesday, the rain will begin pushing out east leaving behind cloudy skies and falling temperatures. We spend most of the day in the 30s.

The pattern will be quiet for the remainder of the week but colder with highs in the 30s. We'll have a couple fairly cold mornings Thursday and Friday with temperatures in the teens.

Temperatures will moderate heading into next weekend with highs back in the 40s.
