Another meteor? Reports come in of bright flash across Ohio, Ind. night sky

Another night near freezing


Temperatures will begin to fall this evening, heading into the lower 40s by about 8 p.m. and then the low to mid 30s overnight.

The chilly night will usher in a sunny but cool weekend with temperatures in the 50s Saturday and upper 40s Sunday, according to Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

Saturday: Sun and some clouds, especially in the afternoon but also an increasing breeze that will be about 20 mph at times in the afternoon. However, the breeze will be from the southwest and that will help warm us into the mid if not upper 50s in spots.

Sunday: A weak cold front will pass through early in the day and cooler air will filter back in for the second half of the weekend. Despite seeing sun all day we'll struggle to reach 50 degrees, and most of us will fall just short.

Monday: Sun gives way to clouds during the day, and after a chilly start near freezing we should have no problem climbing into the low to mid 50s in the afternoon. At some point Monday night some light rain showers will arrive.

Tuesday: Light rain showers change to light snow showers before ending in the morning, perhaps shortly after sunrise. Simpson said there will be very little accumulation, maybe a coating on the grass at best. "We may need to watch for some wet spots (on roadways) getting slick, mainly on bridges, ramps, overpasses, etc. I am not concerned about widespread problems by any means," Simpson said. Sun will return in the afternoon but it will be cold with highs in the mid to upper 30s.

Wednesday: Mid 20s to start but sun all day long with a high near 40 degrees.
