Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Thankfully the sun was shining over Central Indiana or it would have been much colder.
The 18,000+ Drumstick Dash runners braved the 8th coldest Thanksgiving morning low temperature since 1871 at a bitter 16°. This afternoon was the first Thanksgiving day below 40° since 2002… and the city’s sixth straight day below the average high.

Next “best” shower chance is Tuesday, with long-range indicators pointing toward a strong cold front hitting a week from now. This front may deliver our coldest temps of the season to this point… and I wouldn’t be shocked to see single digits lows next weekend. Stay tuned for details. Have a great Thanksgiving evening – Sean Ash
