An active weather pattern will bring multiple chances of rain for the 5 day period. Temperatures will likely stay above normal despite the movements of the systems and the cool down expected.
Saturday: A frontal system will move through across Indiana, bringing widespread rain to the area for much of the day on Saturday. There is a potential for some early morning thunderstorms but chances are unlikely. We will likely hit our high on Saturday in the pre-dawn hours of 53°F, temperatures will be falling as the day goes on as the system moves out and the wind shifts to the northwest for the day on Saturday. Temperatures will fall into the upper 30’s by the evening.
Sunday: A ridge located over the deep south will dominate the weather pattern for Sunday. Morning lows in the mid 30’s, highs rebounding to the low 60’s. It will be a beautiful sunny day, blue skies galore on Sunday!
Monday: Ridge shifts a little bit to the east, a strong frontal system is developing over the Texas Panhandle region. We are in-between systems, the day should be sunny and a very warm day on Monday. Highs around 70°F, morning lows in the mid to low 40’s.
Tuesday: That system from the Texas Panhandle is progressing it’s way east, a warm front is expected to slowly lift northward. However for the day Tuesday the front may not move far enough north to produce rain in Muncie. The rain wouldn’t be an all day rain if it does it all depends on the movement of the system. It will be a considerably cooler day with highs only in the mid 50’s and that could be set in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday as Tuesday could be a day of steady or falling temperatures. Lows in the upper 30’s.
Wednesday: The morning and early afternoon on Wednesday is looking very wet with very few breaks in the rain possible. Then in the evening the rain should break up and become scattered rain showers for the day. Highs in the low 60’s, lows in the upper 30’s.
