You might fight fog at first on Friday, otherwise TGI-sunny today. Ready to make a mental map? A big “H” moves across Indiana today. That dome of high pressure keeps the weather story quiet, but the blue triangles arrive tomorrow! That cold front will usher in some afternoon and evening clouds, and a few flurries are possible. Clouds could linger into Sunday morning, but no big storms this weekend. The next chance of anything noteworthy is a rain thing Tuesday and Wednesday. Sunday’s the only below average temperature day in the 7 Day Forecast.
But there IS Winter elsewhere. When in Rome….pack a parka! It’s been below freezing most nights so far this month, and they’ve have a couple of rounds of wet snow. Doesn’t happen much, and it doesn’t sit well with the Colosseum. The ancient architectural wonder had to turn tourists away this week after bits of the massive structure crumbled and fell. Ice forming on the walls was blamed. Things improve today through the weekend, with highs in the 50’s, but I’m sure the Colosseum won’t be (re)built in a day.
Just think: Rome’s had two episodes of snow this month. Metro Indy’s only had six. Let the comparisons begin. The pasta-bilities are endless! (Sorry. We need some winter around here to distract me and put an al dente into my bad puns.)
