Dry weather expected over the state today and colder air spills into the region on northwest flow behind the front that moved through yesterday.
Clouds return to the state tomorrow ahead of a strong front coming in to finish the week and start the weekend. Scattered showers start up tomorrow afternoon and will be most frequent north of I-70. We see warmer air surging back into the region with the moisture. Rains increase overnight tomorrow night through Saturday working south and east across the state with some thunderstorms still possible. The best chance for thunderstorms looks to be central Indiana Saturday midday and afternoon, although we don’t want to try and finesse the forecast too much at this time. Rains finally diminish after midnight Saturday night. Rain totals for the event will be from .25”-1” over 100% of the state.
Clouds hold for a good part of Sunday again, as northwest winds return. We will be colder. Clouds may be able to break for some sun later in the day, but we have low expectations at this point. We then have dry weather for the rest of the week as well, Monday through the following Saturday. However, temperatures for this dry period are going to be all over the place. We stay relatively cold on Monday, then see moderating temps Tuesday. A strong Canadian high dives in for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, taking temps back below normal again, before we moderate for next Saturday. So, it will be a roller coaster ride, even though we expect some good sun through the period.
In the extended period, we see a nice front pushing in for Sunday the 26th. The heart of this system will pass by to the south, but we see some moisture able to surge north over the state. This can bring .1”-.5” with coverage at 70%. Then we are dry for the 27th through the 30th. We have another cold front lining up for December 1st, but precipitation totals do not look too impressive at this time, perhaps a .25” or less. However, precipitation could be either rain or wet snow. Stay tuned.
