Since most of central Indiana is now officially in growing season, the National Weather Service has issued an overnight frost warning for the risk of damage to sensitive crops and vegetation.

After the frosty start to our Easter Sunday, temperatures climb back into the low 50s under mostly sunny skies.

The clouds increase in the latter part of the day and the rain returns after 10 p.m.

Most of the precipitation will be gone by Monday morning, but some slippery roads will be possible.

Skies will clear up in the afternoon, but remain unusually cold with highs in the 50s. More sunshine is in store for Tuesday, but we don’t see much of a warming trend with highs still in the middle from the 50s.

We will finally start to warm up on Wednesday with highs approaching the 60s. Late afternoon showers and storms will be possible as we move into a warmer air mass. We will be in the high 60s on Thursday and in the low 70s for the highs by Friday.
