INDIANAPOLIS — There has been some uncertainty with the forecast for this weekend. The model data has changed quite a bit each day. However, the long range models are starting to line up. It does look like it will be unseasonably mild both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Christmas could rank with one of the warmest in Indianapolis climatology.
Warmer, moist air will continue to push in on Christmas Eve Day. Temperatures will rise throughout the day, eventually climbing into the mid-50s by late day.
A few areas of drizzle will be around, too, with only a few hundredths of an inch of rain possible.
Temperatures will continue to warm on Christmas Day. Temperatures will hover in the low 50s Saturday morning and then will rise in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees by afternoon. There could be a sharp cut off of colder air to the north and warmer air to the south.
If temperatures rise into the upper 50s or low 60s, it will be close to the average of cities with a much warmer climate.
It will be breezy and humid with more rain possible late afternoon into Sunday morning.
Sunday will be breezy and mild with highs near 50 degrees.
