Morning Forecast & Discussion, 2/5/2024: Clouds? In our Hour of Triumph (Over Them)?

High pressure is in charge with impressively clear skies, but could lake-effect clouds put a damper on things?

Good Morning, Cardinal Country! In addition, Happy National Weatherperson’s Day!! It was probably a rough start due to a cold, frosty morning (and maybe staying up to watch the Grammys + late local news for the real early starters out there)! Had to take care of some frost due to clear, calm conditions & some moisture at ground level, but at least we are warming up and enjoying some spectacular sun to chase away the case of the Mondays! However, while things look so nice and clear right now, we weatherpersons don’t have to look far (from above) to see that our sun has a challenger! (Oh no!!)

Satellite overview as of 9:46 AM shows that darned low-level cloud deck we’re watching. Hoping we will be able to hold that off, but at least it will not be too much of a factor for long because of the change we’ll see in our winds this week!

Clouds that formed in response to cooler drier air blowing out of the north over the warmer Great Lakes are starting to creep into Indiana *Cue Jaws theme*, and we have to especially watch out for that layer you see coming in off of Lake Erie for our area. This looks to stunt our “temperature growth”, and we might not get too far into the 40s before this somewhat thick lower-level cloud layer gets to us later on this AM. Otherwise, the winds should be light & the weather should remain calm. We will have to see how long it takes for this cloud layer to get here & we’ll be keeping an eye on what that does to our temps, but as we get through the rest of our week, that will be much less of a factor!
