Dry Until Thursday and Still Mild For Now

Posted By · September 30, 2014 at 4:06 pm

Cooler air has made its way into central Indiana.  Temperatures across the northern two-thirds of the state are only in the 60s and lower 70s.  This cool air has not made its way into the southern part of the state.  Temperatures are still near 80 degrees in Bedford, Seymour and North Vernon.  This warmer air will move back north for Wednesday and Thursday, before a bigger storm system dramatically changes our weather pattern later this week.

Temperatures overnight will be in the range of 45-50 degrees.  Patchy fog is possible early Wednesday.  Wednesday will be dry, with highs in the range of 75-80 degrees.


Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.  Rain chances arrive on Thursday.  The heaviest rain will fall Thursday afternoon through Friday morning.  A few storms are possible too.   Here is the latest timing for rain and storms later Thursday through Friday morning.  We will keep you updated on any and all changes to the timing of the rain later this week with FutureTrak13.



The rain and storms are associated with a cold front and there is more cold air on the way.  Temperatures will only be in the 60s, with lingering rain on Friday.

Saturday will be damp and cool, with highs only in the 50s.  Expect a mix of clouds and sun on Sunday, with highs only in the upper 50s and lower 60s.  A few more showers may develop later Sunday and rain chances are in the forecast on Monday.

This cool and unsettled weather patter will linger through next week.
