INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – It was a night and day difference compared to yesterday for our Wednesday. The weather rose to near the 50 ° mark with blustery southerly winds. This warmer weather will not last as cooler air and chances of snow should creep in to the forecast.
Wednesday evening: The sky will become partly cloudy overnight and the winds will subside. Lows are set to dip in the upper 20s to the lower 30s.
Thusday: A cooler afternoon will be forecast for Thursday as the winds shift out of the northwest and set the stage for our cooldown. In yesterday’s afternoon blog, it was about possible snow showers for our Thursday. Those chances have diminished, and it will be a dry day. Highs will be more seasonal with numbers peaking in the upper 30s to lower 40s.
Friday: Cooldown continues to end the work week under mostly cloudy skies. Highs seem to be around average again for this time of year as we peak in the mid-1930s.
8 day forecast: Chances of snow seem to set in as we work through the weekend. Right now, the details are still a bit difficult to pin down. Some models continue to plunge most of the snow south of central Indiana throughout the weekend. There is also the option for the system to make a sharp turn northeast on Sunday which would also give us a better chance of snow at that time as well. All in all, it’s too early to throw in the towel on the chances of snow this weekend.
Whether or not we see snow it will be fairly cold for the majority of the extended forecast. High temperatures are expected to stay in the 30’s until next week.
