During the day today we saw beautiful sunny skies and a breeze throughout the day, it was truly a spring day. As we have made our way into the evening we have seen high-level clouds move in ahead of the next low pressure system that is going to move through the southern Ohio River valley region from the southwest, but will have some effect on the weather we see here. Tomorrow there is the chance for some rain/snow mix early on in the day, turning to mainly a rain chance later in the day. Sunday the sunshine will return. Unfortunately throughout the weekend temperatures are going to be cooler than what they have been as we will only make it to the lower 40s. Monday and Tuesday we will see more sunshine in our forecast and high temperatures will once again making their way up to more spring like temperatures. Wednesday and Thursday are our next chances for rain as a low pressure system begins to work it's way through our area. Thursday during the day there is the chance for an isolated thunderstorm throughout the area, and late Thursday evening and into Friday is looking like the best chance for heavy precipitation. That heavy precip is likely to persist throughout Friday, possibly changing to snow overnight on Friday before moving our of our area Saturday morning.

MUNCIE, IN (NewsLink Indiana) - Drizzle with a few passing rain showers dominated most of East Central Indiana today. However, do not expect to see drastic changes to the forecast for the day on Tuesday. Tonight, expect overcast skies with temperatures dropping down to 48 degrees. We cannot rule out the possibility of some drizzle in the overnight hours. Tomorrow morning, dense patchy fog is possible. Precisioncast fog estimates visibilities to be below 5 miles before 9 a.m. After the fog and overcast skies break mid-morning expect to see some sunshine. This sunshine will allow us to warm up to a high of 70 degrees tomorrow. However, this mid-morning and afternoon heating will be enough to produce late afternoon rain and thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma has placed much of central Indiana under a slight risk of severe weather. The primary threat is looking to be damaging winds. However, we can never rule out the chance of a isolated tornado or small hail. The timing of the severe weather primarily lies after 9 p.m. with the line of storms moving out of the area in the early morning hours on Wednesday. Remember to follow us on twitter @NLIWeather for the latest severe weather coverage.
Throughout Saturday evening and through last night, we officially picked up 1.17 inches of rain at the Muncie Airport, and that rain is expected to continue throughout the day today. We will see a slight break in the rain during the early hours, but should start again around noon. There is the slight chance for some thunderstorms throughout the day, so don’t be surprised if you see some lightning or hear some thunder, but we should not expect damaging winds. Overnight we should see the rain system continue to move out of our area. Tuesday we should see some slight breaks in the clouds throughout the day, but they day will continue to be gray. Tuesday evening there will be another low pressure system that will move to the north of us, bringing rain to east central Indiana and the possibility of a thunderstorm in the evening. The NOAA Storm Prediction Center has placed most of central Indiana under a slight risk of severe weather, which is better than the chance for Monday. This means that there is the possibility of damaging winds, thunder, and lightning. Wednesday we will see more of the clouds start to break up, allowing for more sunshine. That sunshine should persist on Thursday and Friday with only a slight chance for rain Thursday night.

MUNCIE, IN (NewsLink Indiana) -- Our temperatures are taking a massive dive as we head into Tuesday night, with lows bottoming out in the lower 20s. Making things much worse will be the wind chill factor. Winds in the 10 to 20 mph range, with gusts over 20, will create wind chill values in the teens to single digits. The sun will come out for a a period on Wednesday afternoon, before more clouds move in ahead of snow arriving late Wednesday and early Thursday. Snow will continue to fall throughout Thursday morning, likely making for a tricky morning commute. Total accumulations are expected to be in the 1 to 2 inch range as of this time, but the temps will be rising throughout the day on Thursday, eventually leading to a rain/snow mix in the early afternoon, likely causing most of the snow that fell earlier in the day to start to melt. Another snow/rain chance arrives on early Saturday as the temps begin to rise as Ball State starts spring break, with temperatures reaching into the 60s by next Tuesday.
