5-day Forecast Update (2/16-2/20/23) – Thundery Thursday, then Wintry Whiplash

Grey skies behind a wild rollercoaster
Who ordered those 30s in the forecast? How could Punxsutawney Phil be right and wrong at the same time?

Good Midday Cardinals & awesome human beans from the Munciana region and beyond! We have another above-normal day ahead (the 6th in a row) as temperatures more typical of mid-March are expected by the afternoon, but what else is expected by then into the evening? Well, we are looking at some thunderstorms (another seemingly un-February thing) and some isolated storms could become severe, meaning a storm or two could contain damaging wind gusts, especially along & SE of I-69. Behind this is one rollercoaster ride as we go for a big drop overnight into the 20s then only around freezing for a high with a northwesterly wind fetch & upper-level energy kicking off some snow flurries or showers – hence why the question about that groundhog! Phil might be wrong again, though as we do another 180 from Saturday through Sunday as high pressure rolls in from the south and winds swing back from the SW. That brings us into the lower 50s again Sunday!!! The jet stream, however, seems wavy and active, and by the beginning of next week, we see it drop and low pressure systems ride it through our area, returning rain, cooler weather and the chance for even some wintry precipitation once we make it to the middle of next week. Indiana, can we make up our mind as to what kind of weather we want? With that in mind, however, this is a forecast for everybody (nearly, anyway, there are some summer fans out there) & especially with the active weather today, make sure you have weather alerts active on your phone, stick with Cardinal Weather Service and the NWS for further updates as we head through the afternoon and evening hours. That’s how you fly safe and have a great day!
