Good afternoon! It is final exam week on the campus of Ball State University and with that, the cold temperatures will stick around throughout the duration of the week.
If you have final exams during the day on Tuesday, you may want to put on those boots because there are chances for some snow showers throughout the day. In terms of accumulation, amounts less than an inch will fall. In addition to the snow, Tuesday is also going to be the coolest day of the 5-day forecast. The high, very early in the day, will be in the mid 20s. Temperatures will be falling throughout the course of the day so it will feel like it is in the teens for highs, along with the winds. Be sure to bundle up!
Wednesday and Thursday both have similar conditions, with highs both days close to 30. There is a very slight chance for some snow very late in the hours of Wednesday and into Thursday, but again it is very slight. Other than that, Wednesday will have mostly sunny skies and Thursday will have mostly cloudy skies.
As we get closer to the end of finals week and December Commencement, temperatures begin to increase with no precipitation in the forecast. Friday calls for partly cloudy skies and highs in the lower-to-mid 30s while Saturday calls for highs in the lower 40s and partly cloudy skies. If you are travelling for December commencement, you should have no problems on the roads but take extra caution at night when lows get down into the 20s.
