#INwx #INdy Nice now but rude changes await this weekend! Cold & even snow.
**DON’T FORGET WINTER OUTLOOK TONIGHT 8PM ON PERISCOPE! INTERACTIVE Q&A!**
Synopsis: A cold front looms to end the week that will bring showers and maybe some gusty winds and a few rumbles of thunder with it Friday evening..I will say if any of the winds aloft can make it to the surface Friday night some severe wind gusts are not out of the question. Ahead of this front temps warm well into the 60s and maybe even 70 Thur/Fri. Right now rain moves in Friday night and colder air moves in Sat/Sun. Its possible we are dealing with some lake effect snows also as this colder air rushes in over warm lake waters. Also worth noting VERY windy this weekend. The snow threat will be for NE IND & NW OH at this time and Ill fine tune as we get closer to the weekend. Details below…
Today-Thursday: Sunshine, warming each day and nice.
Friday-Fri night: Cold front approaches with rain and thunder and very gusty winds perhaps gusts to 50 mph.
Sat-Sun: Snow showers are possible as a strong NW wind blows off of Lake Michigan. Right now here is the area we are targeting for that potential. Some accumulation is not impossible esp in the purple area.
Total precip with this system as of right now looks to be ~0.25-0.60″ area wide.
Sat-Sun: Wind chills at times will feel like they are in the teens! It will feel like Winter this weekend no doubt about it.
Next system of interest comes next Wed-Fri right now. Could be dealing with yet another system on turkey day so check back.
Its also possible its pretty cold for Thanksgiving and black Friday too.
Confidence and Risks:
- High confidence in nice and dry conditions between now and Friday AM.
- High confidence in above normal temps this week.
- High confidence in a robust cold front Friday night. Rain/Colder. Very windy.
- High confidence in lake effect snow potential Sat/Sun.
- High confidence on wind chills in lowers 20s/upper teens.
- Average confidence on Thanksgiving/Black Friday forecast. A storm looms and it looks colder.
