The weekend began with near-record warmth and record-breaking rainfall, but colder and damp with areas of fog and drizzle.
Temperatures near-freezing north-northwest of Indy put slick spots in play on elevated surfaces overnight into Monday morning. Expect a cloudy, damp start with temperatures in the 30s and areas of dense fog/drizzle.
Clouds and patchy drizzle hang tough early Monday with some hope of late-day sunshine. Highs still near 50° in the afternoon with the help of a southwest wind.
Tuesday looks like the pick-of-the-week with sunshine and highs nearing 60°... which is 25° above average highs for mid-January. Clouds and showers around Wednesday don't stop highs from getting back into the 50s.
We'll be monitoring the track of a late-week storm system that may bring a period of wintry mix to Central Indiana on Friday. Arrival time and amounts are uncertain at this time, but majority of model guidance shows a transition to rain and again displaces the heavy snow track to our north. Check back for updates.
Long range guidance advertises much colder air behind this system to finish next weekend with possibly sub-zero wind chills and highs in the 20s. Stay tuned.
