Rain Chances Monday

Posted By · October 19, 2014 at 4:47 pm

After some morning sunshine, clouds have increased Sunday afternoon.  This mostly cloudy trend will continue Sunday night.  With cloudy skies in the forecast Sunday night, it won’t be as chilly overnight.  We are forecasting lows in the middle 40s.

The clouds are associated with a weak weather system that will bring the chance for a few showers to central Indiana on Monday.  Scattered showers are in the Monday forecast, with highs near 60 degrees.


This weather system will start to move east on Tuesday.  Clouds will linger on Tuesday and it will be a cool day, with highs in the upper 50s.

Patchy frost is possible on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, with low temperatures forecast in the middle and upper 30s.  Highs on Wednesday and Thursday will only be in the range of 55-60 degrees, but a milder change is on thye way for the rest of the week.

Highs will be in the 60s, with sunshine on Friday and Saturday and near 70 on Sunday.

Chilly Start To What Becomes A Brighter Day

Posted By · October 19, 2014 at 5:22 am

Lingering low clouds and a north wind have kept the central Indiana from a widespread frost overnight.  Though some patchy frost remains possible in areas that do see clearing and where temperatures drop into the middle 30s.


Either way it will be a chilly start for Colts tailgating, the Covered Bridge Festival, leaf viewing in Brown County or whatever else you have planned before noon.  Clouds this morning will slowly, but surely lessen and today eventually becomes brighter and certainly drier than Saturday.  As a result afternoon highs return to the upper 50s.


Clouds increase again overnight in response to an approaching cold front and showers are possible by the time you wake Monday morning.  We’ll have a mix of sun and showers Monday afternoon with highs in the 60s


Much of our weather this week will greatly be influenced by a developing storm in the northeastern U.S.  This will keep the wind predominantly from the north which results in cooler than normal temperatures until next weekend.

A string of mostly sunny days begins Wednesday and carries into next weekend when highs climb back into the middle 60s.  This dry spell is perfect timing for Harvest 2014!  Have a great Sunday – Sean Ash
