We knew it was only a matter of time until this unseasonably warm pattern over the eastern US flipped to the opposite. That time is next week. Here’s the latest:
Flow from the southwest continues to pump in warm air with any sign of cool, fall-like air trapped well to our west.
PATTERN EARLY NEXT WEEK:
A storm system will develop in the Ohio Valley late this weekend into early next week and will bring a strong northerly flow to the area. This will drag in cooler temps later Sunday into Monday with a decent shot at some rainfall. Cool, but not cold.
PATTERN LATE NEXT WEEK:
Here we go. Our area of low pressure is forecast to merge with another low up near the Hudson Bay in Canada. The result? We connect with an airmass in northern Canada–where it’s a lot colder. This could bring a dose of cold air with lake effect showers and yes, a few wet flakes of snow. Keep in mind a LOT can change with the exact connections that could bring this airmass into NW Indiana–but models have been consistent the last few days.
Take a look at the predicted snowfall the next 10 days. Regardless of if we see anything here in NW Indiana–it’s getting closer. (runs and hides)
COOLER AIR IN 3-4 DAYS, COLDER AIR IN 6-8 DAYS:
Regardless of precip-type, we’re going to feel more like October around here. Take a look at a few of the models thoughts on how cool we get:
Notice the trend downward in temps beyond 7 days:
As always, we’ll continue to keep you update!
