Things increasing today: clouds, temps, wind speeds! Temps will climb back to the 40s after 10am, and into the low 50s in the afternoon. A large trough in the upper atmosphere (look for the “u” shaped feature on the chart) lifts out of the West, then the Plains, and then into the upper Midwest by Saturday.
The trough and the associated surface low will stir up storms in the Deep South that could produce tornadoes Friday and Saturday, and 2-4 inches of rain here in Central Indiana. Heavy snow is likely northwest of the path of the surface low. Not a factor here.
