Winter Pattern Takes Over - Live Doppler 13 Blog

Kelly Greene

The coldest air of the season arrives this weekend. High pressure will keep central Indiana dry today, but clouds are already streaming in ahead of the next system. It will be a cold day with temperatures running more than 10 degrees below average. Afternoon highs only climb into the mid 40s.

It will be cloudy this evening with precipitation moving in late tonight.

It will likely start off as rain until the column of air cools down. The air aloft will be cold enough for snow development overnight. Rain will change over to snow.

Snow showers will be likely during morning drive time. The ground is still warm so some areas won’t receive accumulation… it will just melt upon hitting the ground. Areas in north central Indiana could get around an inch of snow with areas along and north of I-70 getting a trace amount to a tenth of an inch of accumulation.

Snow will taper off mid morning with cloudy skies through late afternoon. Temperatures will only climb into the low 40s.

An upper level system will allow another round of snow. Quick bursts of snow will be likely Friday evening with lake effect snow likely.

The skies clear out late Friday night with temperatures falling into the mid 20s. It will be the coldest morning since April 8th.

Saturday will be sunny and really cold for this time of year. Temperatures only climb into the low to mid 30s. The record of lowest maximum high for Saturday, November 10th is 28° set in 1933. Wind chills will be in the mid to upper 20s.

Temperatures will be a bit warmer Sunday, but still unseasonably cold. It will be mostly cloudy with high in the low 40s.

The winter-like pattern continues next week with a chance of snow showers again Monday through Wednesday.
