Bitterly cold air by midweek

No significant snow with the cold front

Basically no change today from yesterday’s models.  Strong cold front will cross central IN/KY tomorrow evening.  Ahead of the front tomorrow, we’ll see a windy mild day with temperatures reaching the upper 40’s to low 50’s during the afternoon.  As the front crosses I-65 tomorrow evening (around 6 – 9 P.M.)  it will probably squeeze a little moisture out of the air.  A little rain is possible with the front, then as the cold air rushes in, any rain should change to a brief period of light snow.  Little, if any, snow accumulation is expected locally.  However, !-2″ of snow will be possible east of I 75 thanks to some help from the higher terrain.

The upcoming cold air mass this week has been well promoted, so it should not come as a surprise to anyone.  However, temperatures in the low single digits with wind chills below zero Wednesday and Thursday mornings will be shocking on our systems.

By the weekend, however, it looks like temperatures once again bounce back into the 40’s and 50’s.
