Special Blog Alert: Latest runs showing sticking snow in Indiana this weekend!
Thursday Night & Friday With Chief Meteorologist Mike Prangley
Forecast Focus: It was nice to see the sunshine again today but this nice break is about over with a vigorous storm on the way. We will have to name it as it is bringing plenty of wind and rain and eventually snow flurries along with our coldest temperatures of the year. We need a female name......Teri?
Tonight: Here comes the rain again. It will spread into the area after 11 p.m. Many areas will see an additional .25" of rain. Lows will be very mild near 50 degrees. It will turn breezy with southwest winds at 15 to 25 mph and gusty.
Friday: A wild day on the way we could see brief glimpses of sunshine pop out in the morning which will give way to afternoon showers and even a thunderstorm. Highs will be near 60 with falling temperatures to near 50 by late day. A southwest to west wind will be near 7 to 15 mph.
Friday Night & Saturday: Temperatures will fall to near 32 by late day Saturday with wind chills mainly in the 20s throughout Saturday. Expect rain Friday night changing over to snow showers with a few bursts of heavier snow possible by late day and early evening. A west to northwest wind will be at 15 to 30 mph and gusty.
Extended Outlook: We stay locked in the same pattern which means cold wintry shots of air will arrive about every 3 days along with unsettled weather. Saturday and Saturday night we will have to watch carefully with possible some snow accumulations for far northern Indiana and a light coating of snow even possible in our viewing area along with slick roads. This would be on Saturday. Make sure to stay tuned.
