Today is the average date of Indy’s first freeze, that’s not in our forecast today!
A nice warm up moves into Central Indiana, but a slight chance of rain moves into the state too. Highs will range from the upper 60s to mid 70s across Central Indiana today. The coolest temps will be in our Northern counties, and the warmest temps to the South. Indy will be right in between! There’s a 20% chance of an isolated shower, with wind gusts up to 30mph.
Overnight, skies clear and temps drop to the mid 40s.
Most of the day Monday looks dry, but rain moves in late afternoon into the evening. That rain sticks around through Tuesday night, and we could pick up, up to .75″ of rain.
High temps tumble into the low 50s by midweek, but a warm up is already on the horizon as we head into next weekend.
WTHR asked Indiana Insider analysts Peter Rusthoven (R) and Robin Winston (D) for their thoughts on Saturday night’s mayoral debate at the University of Indianapolis. Here are their responses. Please note that WTHR does not endorse these statements and that they are the opinions attributed to each individual commentator only.
This debate provided a good window on the candidates and the choice in this year’s Mayoral election.
Mayor Ballard comes across as exactly what he is – a Marine, a leader, a doer.
If you had to pick one of these two people to do a tough job that was personally important to you and your family, where “talking good” meant nothing and getting results meant everything, there’s no question you would hire the Marine and the doer, not the lawyer and the talker. And you’d be right.
That’s exactly the choice faced by the City of Indianapolis and it citizens. They should make the same decision.
The weekend forecast looks pretty good, you’ll just have to battle strong wind gusts as you’re out and about.
Highs will hit the mid 60s with mostly sunny skies today. Wind gusts up to 30 to 40mph are possible throughout the day.
Overnight, the winds die down as temps drop to the mid 40s. A chilly night is setting up with partly cloudy skies.
Sunday, wind gusts up to 25mph are likely as highs hit the mid 70s. There’s a 20% chance for an isolated shower.
Monday, we have another chance at rain… but the best day for showers will be Tuesday as highs only hit the mid 50s.

What a change in weather we have seen the past few hours! Showers continue to march from south to north through Indiana. Look for highs to only top out in the mid to upper 60s the next four days. The rain will last until late tonight and not return until the beginning of next week.
Hey, I can’t wait to get to both Brown County and Parke County to look at the leaves and the covered bridges and the turning leaves. It looks like the weather will cooperate. The latest leaf update by the way, shows much of Indiana near peak as far as colors are concerned.
So far we’ve had no rain in Central Indiana for the month of October. That will change tonight and tomorrow.
Highs today will reach the low to mid 70s with a mix of sun and clouds. Today we stay dry.
Overnight into Thursday, scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible. We’re not looking at severe storms right now, but gusty winds and heavy downpours will be possible in isolated cells. Up to 1/2″ of rain is possible.
