3-7 day forecast 10/12/2011

Forecast updated 2:00pm EDT - 12 Oct 2011

This is Paul Brandt with the long-range outlook for Central Indiana.

We begin on Saturday, when an infusion of cool air from Canada will lead to cooler-than average temperatures, with highs likely to be in the low 60s.

Sunday and Monday should be warmer, at least bringing temperatures up to seasonal levels in the upper 60s, nearing 70. Precipitation will be minimal from Saturday until sometime during Monday afternoon, at which point rain will begin to move in from the west.

Monday night into Tuesday morning, a cold front is expected to move through, bringing the likelihood of significant precipitation, and sharply cooler weather to follow. Wednesday is likely to witness the peak of the cool weather, with high temperatures restricted to the mid-50s.
