expected. A cold front passes through the state this afternoon. That should keep places northwest of Indianapolis around 50, but mid 50s looks possible in the metro area.
As the front advances the rain chance will be concentrated in the southeast half of Indiana by evening. The biggest chance for precipitation will be gone by the time the atmosphere would be set up for snow. Nevertheless you can expect snow showers and flurries and maybe a bad attitude Monday. Winds will have shifted to the northwest and they may get gusty. Snow showers are still possible for the northern half of the state Monday evening.
After that: shhhhhhh. No big storms for the work week. We may do deja vu next weekend, with above average temperatures and rain chances. Are you feeling a Green Christmas?
