Much warmer for the weekend

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We experienced our coldest Christmas in 35 years as temperatures struggled to get out of the mid-teens with wind chill values below zero. Comparing the high temperature for this Christmas to last year’s is quite astonishing as we had the fourth warmest Christmas of all time just a year ago.

Friday night: Another very cold night is ahead as skies will clear out. Lows will be around the low to mid-teens with wind chill values near zero.

Saturday: A much better weather day is in store for us as we return to near normal temperatures under mostly sunny skies. Highs will climb into the mid to upper 30s.

Sunday: An even warmer day will be on tap as cloud cover will increase throughout the day. There is the chance for rain showers late Sunday.

Highs will rise into the mid 40s.

8 Day Forecast: The start to the new workweek next week may feature scattered mix precipitation as skies become partly cloudy. Highs will return to the mid 30s through Monday and Tuesday before we briefly return to the 40s for Wednesday. Another system looks to move in by midweek, bringing rain and snow chances, as we close out 2020. We enter the New Year on Friday dry and chilly before more snow chances return next Saturday.
