Several rounds of rain and some wintry weather this week

Brief freezing rain possible in southern Indiana by morning


  • Rain south, brief wintry mix north by morning 
  • Freezing rain and sleet possible early Tuesday morning
  • Trending drier mid to late week 

The next couple of days have been very tricky to forecast. We are still looking at the chance for rain, snow and ice but have low confidence on who will see what. What I have higher confidence in is that we will see several rounds of precipitation this week and it will be much cooler.

Starting with overnight tonight, temperatures will hold steady in the lower 40s until a cold front pushes through in the early morning hours. As the front passes, there is a brief period of time where rain could switch over to a wintry mix in southern Indiana. However, little to no winter weather impacts are expected where we do see it. From the Derby City on south we are just looking at rain for Monday morning before turning dry and cloudy for the afternoon. Temperatures will likely start out in the upper 30s and drop throughout the day.

Yet another round of moisture arrives Monday night into Tuesday morning. This has the potential be a bigger deal, at least compared to the little we are facing tomorrow morning. Rain will begin in the evening and potentially turn to light freezing rain and sleet throughout Kentuckiana by dawn Tuesday and result in icy roads. Even though we are not expecting much, it only takes a little bit of ice to cause problems on the roads so the morning commute may be quite hazardous.

Wednesday and Thursday will still feature rain chances but will favor our southernmost counties and be more limited in coverage. The majority of us will just be cool and cloudy. The sunshine finally returns to end the headache of a work week and kick off the weekend. We will watch for the potential for more rain next Sunday.

TONIGHT: Cloudy with rain developing by morning. Low: 36°

 TOMORROW: Morning rain, temperatures drop through the day. High: 40°
