From highs in the 80s to lows in the 30s, we are tracking the 40 degree temperature drop.   The widespread heavier rain has moved east, but there is another band of showers moving toward central Indiana for Friday evening.  The chance for a few showers will last through about 11pm, then skies will clear.


The cooler air is here and it will last through the weekend.  Temperatures overnight will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s.


Saturday will start with a few hours of sunshine, but clouds will quickly build by mid to late morning.  Scattered showers will develop too.  Highs on Saturday will only be near 50 degrees.  It will feel colder than that 50 degrees, with winds W 15-25 mph.


Patchy frost is possible on Sunday morning, with lows in the lower and middle 30s.  Expect morning sunshine to give way to more clouds on Sunday afternoon.  A spotty shower is possible again, but the showers won’t be as numerous as Saturday.  Highs on Sunday will be in the middle and upper 50s.

60s return early next week and 70s are back for Thursday and Friday.  We stay in an active weather pattern, with rain chances late Monday and early Tuesday and again late Thursday and Friday.

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.
