Chilly Night and a Late Week Warm Up

Posted By · October 21, 2014 at 4:25 pm

The lingering clouds late Tuesday will clear, as the weather system that brought clouds and a few showers to central Indiana finally moves east.  The core of a cool air mass is the weather concern overnight.  Forecast lows are in the middle and upper 30s.  It will be cold enough for some patchy frost early Wednesday.


Sunshine is in the Wednesday forecast, with highs in the middle and upper 50s.  These numbers are still 8-10 degrees cooler than average, but the SkyTrak13 Weather Team is tracking a warm-up for the rest of the week.  Highs will be near 60 on Thursday and in the lower 60s on Friday.

Sunshine on Thursday will give way to a few clouds Thursday afternoon through Friday morning.  These clouds will be associated with a weak weather system that will pass just to our north.

More sunshine and a milder weather pattern arrive for the weekend, with highs in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees.  Our next best chance for rain isn’t until Tuesday of next week.

A stubborn upper level low will slowly drift off to the east today.  A few light spotty showers will be possible, especially in our northern viewing area.  The skies will slowly clear today as high pressure build in.  Temperatures will remain in the mid 50s this afternoon.


The skies will continue to clear out overnight, allowing temperatures to fall into the mid 30s.  Patchy frost will be likely.

A much brighter pattern arrives on Wednesday.  It will be sunny and cool with highs in the upper 50s.

The gradual warming trend will continue well into next week with temperatures climbing above average this weekend.  The SkyTrak13 weather team is forecasting temperatures around 70 degrees Sunday and Monday.


A weak cold front will arrive late Thursday night and there may be the need to put some light rain in the forecast.  Otherwise, a dry pattern will continue into next week, as well.

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
