Temperatures will remain above normal for the next several days until a potent autumn storm system will approach the area Friday afternoon through Saturday, that will bring an increase of wind, rain, and behind the system, the coldest air of the season. Below is FutureCast of how the radar could look like from 4 pm Friday through 1 pm Saturday. The cold front is expected to be near the state line by the early evening hours Friday, with showers and thunderstorms near and ahead of the front. The front will quickly move across the state during the evening hours and by early Saturday morning around 1 am, the front will be moving into Ohio. Some of the storms associated with the cold front could be on the strong side with gusty winds. Behind the front, winds will switch to northwest, then eventually to the north and northeast and wrap around moisture on the back side of the low and with colder air in place, could see a mix of rain and snow showers. Lake enhanced snows also possible for far Northern Indiana. At this time, not expecting any accumulation, but we will continue to monitor the situation. In addition, winds could gust up to 40 mph, so in some of the heavier snow burst could create near whiteout conditions at times, mainly for far Northern Indiana. We will have another weather update in regards to the weekend system later today.
Thoughts on major weather events, severe weather events, and/or changes to the company.
