INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - The Monday morning low will hit around midnight, with temperatures slowly rising daybreak. Highs on Monday reach the upper 40s and lower 50s. These temperatures will be the warmest of the next eight days.
Forecast 8 Storm Tracker shows rain moving into southwestern Indiana. More rain will spread to the north Sunday evening. Indianapolis and points to the north stay dry until after midnight.
Some snowflakes may mix with the rain at times, but it will be mostly rain for much of central and southern Indiana. Northern Indiana will see more of the wintry mix with freezing rain at times overnight.
Light ice accumulation is possible north of a line through Lafayette, Kokomo, and Marion.
The Indy Snow Force will have 39 trucks on standby beginning at 11 p.m. Sunday. Crews will be ready to treat roads as needed for Monday morning traffic, according to a release.
Temperatures will rise enough by daybreak that any ice will melt. Most of the rain moves out by Monday afternoon. A stray rain shower is possible throughout the day Monday.
Most Hoosiers will just see another cloudy day.
High pressure takes control for the rest of the 8-day forecast. We may see some sunshine during the week, finally. However, temperatures will consistently be below the average high of 52 degrees.
The jet stream will dig very far south for this time of the year, keeping Indiana in the cold weather pattern.
This pattern may continue into early April.
