STATEWIDE–After a rainy Monday, the National Weather Service in Indianapolis says the entire state can expect the next few days to be free of precipitation.

“We’re going to be a little bit colder here, so our highs are going to be in the mid-40s with lows below freezing once again. So we’re heading back to that chilly time. We’ll warm up, though, by the end of the workweek,” said Aaron Updike, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Highs will be in the mid-50s across the state by Thursday. Temperatures will be cooler than that Tuesday and Wednesday.

“But then they are going to drop right back again as a cold front moves through Friday evening. We get back into chances of rain and we may even see some wintry precipitation Friday into Saturday,” said Updike.

Lows will be in the upper teens to low 20s Friday night into Saturday. Updike expects many places in Indiana to have temperatures below freezing. Updike says it is too early to tell how much rain, snow, or sleet may fall.

From midnight to 7 am Monday, 1.77 inches of rain fell at the Indy Int’l Airport. This breaks the record daily rainfall for March 7. The previous record was 1.45 inches, set in 1995.

The National Weather Service also says Saturday’s high of 77 in Indianapolis broke the previous record for the date of March 5th at 75.
