An associated cold front will pass through the state Tuesday allowing Arctic air to infiltrate central IN mid-to-late week. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 52.
By Friday, the cold is expected to be felt across most of Britain, with hail, sleet and snow all forecast. This means that a handful of people, mainly in our NC counties, will have a very slim chance of winter weather Friday morning and possibly Saturday morning. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. "There will be wintry showers consisting of hail and snow, but it looks like Dublin won't be hit too hard compared to the north-west".
There is a possibility of isolated, minor coastal flooding during the day Monday for Long Island Sound along northern Nassau and northwestern Suffolk, the National Weather Service said. It is possible to see some occasional gusty winds over 30mph related to the front.
Tonight will remain very mild, with rain showers and possibly even a couple of rumbles of December thunder crossing the area.
The heavier rain moves southeast of the area Tuesday night with leftover showers developing behind the front into the overnight and Wednesday.
Highs Wednesday will be in the upper 40s to near 50. The good news is the ground temperatures are much too warm for anything to stick around.
"Saturday will be a mostly dry day although parts of the coast may get a touch of snow".
Prolonged periods of cold weather can be risky, especially for the very young, very old or those with chronic diseases.
Friday night: Mostly cloudy; low of 23.
Colder weather is headed to the Decatur area, and it could include light snow or flurries this weekend.
According to Weatherquest forecaster Adam Dury, said strong winds were also set to blast the region.
