Sixties today… but down to ten degrees by Friday!January 29th, 2013 at 8:44 am by Jamie Jarosik under Weather
Yes, we have ups and downs to discuss this week! Today: ups. Near-record highs, as a matter of fact! We are forecasting 62-degrees, with the record high being 66 set back in 1914. This morning’s lows were in the lower 50s, so it was a pretty nice start in the “warm sector” of the storm system:
Breezy conditions come along with the mild air. We’ll also see lots of clouds today, but there is the chance that the sun will peek out a bit this afternoon. We can’t completely rule out a spotty shower, but it does look like most will stay dry today. THEN things change tonight as a cold front moves in. Rain and thunderstorms become likely late tonight into early Wednesday morning:
It looks like a line will be heading our way as we start the day, and some of these thunderstorms will have the potential to produce gusty winds. The Storm Prediction Center has placed far western Wayne Co, IN in the elevated risk for severe storms:
We will keep you posted through the overnight and early morning of Wednesday–any watches or warnings on-air on Channel 2, WDTN or online at www.wdtn.com. You can also sign up for Text Alerts on our website!
The real cold front will actually push across the area during the afternoon, so the chance of scattered rain showers will continue even after the line of t’storms moves through. It will be even windier Wednesday… and after the front passes, temperatures will tank! We’ll start the day in the 50s/60s… and then drop into the upper 30s by evening. This is when a few snow showers will be possible, but we won’t see much accumulation. Then we’re in the deep freeze for the rest of the week, with highs only in the 20s!
