UNUSUAL WEATHER...How crazy is this weather? I came back to Louisville from Indianapolis...and my last few years there were spent covering intense winter storms the last few winters. I knew I'd have to say good-bye to *some* snow moving back to Lousville...but COME ON! :) I can't remember a time when the weather has been this unusual and unpredictable. I just read a stat that said the last 4 out of 5 "non-snowy" winters were followed by unsually hot summers...and at this rate it looks like the tale of three seasons will continue as temperatures soar in the coming days.
TODAY...A quick moving clipper system affected much of central and Northern Indiana today as lingering clouds developed this afternoon especially areas North of the river. The temperature gradient from our Northern counties to our Southern counties were quite distinct as increased cloud cover kept temps in check North of the river while mainly sunny skies helped temps warm to near 60 for our Southern counties. As we look ahead temperatures will continue to rise as winds will shift to the south and remain breezy.
LOOKING AHEAD...As we kick off a new week temperatures are expected to warm into the upper 50s and low 60s. We'll hold onto some sunshine tomorrow as clouds increase throughout the day on Tuesday ahead of our next rain maker. We'll watch a few disturbances that will infuence parts of the Ohio Valley mid to late week as temperatures remain above average. After the rain comes the...say it ain't snow! Some models holding onto the idea of tumbling temps and rain/snow to all snow by this coming weekend. Seems like wishful thinking...but we'll continue to monitor it. Stay tuned!
