Wild week of weather - Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog

Published:

A seasonal evening is in store for Central Indiana with a mix of sun and clouds as temperatures fall through the 40s.

Another quiet day for tomorrow -- sunny and cold to start with temps rebounding into the lower 50s in the afternoon as clouds slowly increase.

Unseasonably warm temperatures arrive mid-week as our weather pattern becomes stormy. Rain showers move in before daybreak Wednesday followed by temperatures climbing into the lower 60s in the afternoon.

Scattered rain showers return in the evening with a few thunderstorms possible as well.

A few storms and rain showers linger through Thursday morning as winds pick up pumping in much warmer southerly air.

High wind gusts will push 55-60 mph in the afternoon/evening. They could potentially do some damage with downed trees and power lines. We'll need to monitor closely for Wind Advisories and/or High Wind Warning if this trend continues.

Temperatures soar well into the lower 70s with the strong south wind -- the first time since October 10th of last year!

The cold front comes through late Thursday evening and seasonably cold air quickly returns. This sets the stage for a blustery Friday that features steady temps in the lower 40s with clouds and light rain showers during the day, potentially mixing with light snow in the evening. So right now looking like a chilly St. Patrick's Day Parade in downtown Indy.

It stays chilly to start next weekend with a few flurries possibly early Saturday and highs near 40. We'll see more sunshine for St. Patrick's Day Sunday with highs climbing back near 50.
