Today’s Indiana weather will be suddenly colder, but the near future is much milder. I think the great philosopher Paula Abdul put it best in 1990: “Two steps forward, two steps back.”
Dry air builds in behind the weather maker that made some snow showers appear for awhile Monday night. The Indy Airport reported a trace of precipitation.
That system is moving along to the East. You say your Uncle Bill had too much turkey and is just now ready to return home to New York? His flight will probably be a little delayed today. An inch or two of snow is likely from around Massachusettes, down through NYC and back to Philly. A few places could see 4″ in south central Pennsylvania and north & west of NYC.
Storms are possible along the Gulf Coast, from Texas over to the Florida panhandle.
Think it got cold here after Thanksgiving? Last week Valentine, Nebraska saw its temperature fall from a record 76° at 3 p.m. on November 21st to 10° by 7 a.m. on November 23rd. That’s a drop of 66° in just 40 hours. That would be no steps forward, and several back:)
Precipitation was persistent for much of the first part of Fall, but it seems we’ve settled back to a very dry pattern. Indy has only seen 1.33 inches of rain in November. The average is 3.22. For the year: 35.42 inches, about 3 and a third below normal. Our next chance for showers is slight, and comes with the warmer air Saturday.
The average high today is 46 and the average low is 31. Records are 70 and 1. Sunrise time is 7:43 and the sun sets at 5:22.
PAUL’S PREVIOUS PREDICTION:
Yesterday’s high was 49. The forecast was 44. Clouds were slower to increase than what Mr. Weatherman expected.
