Afternoon Clearing

Posted By · August 11, 2015 at 11:26 am

After a foggy start for north central Indiana, we are starting to see a little improvement across central Indiana and a few areas are already seeing sunshine. Visibility has improved, and we’ll see a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon.  There’s a slight chance of sprinkles, but most areas should remain dry.

tuesday today

Temperatures will eventually top out around 80. The humidity is dropping, and you’ll notice a big difference tomorrow when dew points are only in the 50s.

As dew points drop pollen levels are increasing and will continue to do so through the weekend.

Tonight temps fall into the 50s under mostly clear skies. The 7 day remains dry for now, we may have to add a chance of showers on Saturday, but for now we’ll keep it dry as temps remain comfortable and eventually start to warm into the mid 80s by the weekend.
