Wintry Spring Break Ahead

Spring Break officially begins this evening and the weather is looking good for travel.  No precipitation is expected and temperatures will be above freezing in the 30s.  Tonight is going to be a calm night, with partly cloudy skies and low temperatures in the mid-20s.

A few snow showers are possible tomorrow morning as a clipper system passes to our north, but most locations should remain dry.  Temperatures will rise all the way into the low 40s with mostly cloudy skies.

Sunday features a 70% chance for snow, as a low pressure system will track through Indiana.  There is still some uncertainty in the precise track; some locations could see several inches of snow and others could receive nothing. Stay tuned to the latest forecast on Sunday and be safe if you have any travel plans.

Next week will not feel like Spring Break at all.  Arctic air will push back into Indiana, dropping temperatures dramatically. High temperatures will struggle to make it out of the teens Monday and Tuesday.  This is an unusually extended period of cold for early March.  Temperatures will rebound somewhat to end the week, with precipitation chances returning on Thursday and Friday.

Have a great Spring Break!
