Sunny Monday Gives Way to A Soggy Week
We have all been waiting for the big change or payback time in our forecast and it is here. We followed up yesterday's bone-chilling high of 37 with temperatures barely reaching 40. Our warm spot was 41 in Crawfordsville. Are you kidding me? No. At least we had great bowling weather this past weekend. I will have to post some bowling pictures I took for you. Nature will briefly warm us up closer to 60 by late week but it looks like for the most part the chilly and unsettled pattern we saw come in last week is here to stay. I will check back, in the meantime here in your forecast paragraph everybody has been asking for. I appreciate your patience while we basically build our web-site from scratch. By time we are done we will all be relieved.
Forecast Focus: Here comes the rain again and eventually snow. It will be a very busy week. Get out the umbrellas and keep the coats handy.
Tonight: Expect partly cloudy skies with lows of 26 with a light wind.
Tuesday: If you are going to any Veterans' Day ceremonies you will want to take your umbrellas with you. Clouds will thicken with afternoon rain showers developing. The heavier rain should hold off until after 4 p.m. High temperatures will struggle into the middle 40s with an east to southeast wind at 8 to 16 mph.
Extended Forecast: We will have a soggy week with a swarm of low pressures on the way. Count them three lows in the next 4 days! Once the rain moves in on Tuesday it is here to stay through early Friday. Then expect falling temperatures with snow showers Friday night into the first part of the weekend. There will not be snow to sled on yet, but if this pattern holds up it may be here sooner than you think. Make sure to stay tuned and I will have more on this here on the weather blog this evening and week.
Mary Anne please send some soup! It is cold!! We need a beautiful weather picture to share to keep our glass half full and you see it below.
Thank you Stuart White. Now that is a beautiful Benton County sunrise. We may not see much in the way of sun until later next weekend and early next week, but at least we have this nice bright picture we can fall back on! Stay warm and positive. This is just the tip of the ice berg and the beginning of a wild weather ride. I will explain why here on the blog tomorrow.
