Chilly Stretch AheadBy
Rain totals through midday on our SkyTrak13 WeatherBug Network were generally between 1/10″ to 1/3″. More showers will be possible from Indy’s southeast side points south and east this afternoon, while areas to the north and west should be mostly cloudy, cool and windy.
Highs may only manage 40s this afternoon because of the clouds and chilly winds (and showers south and east). That’s a huge difference from yesterday’s balmy 76! It will feel even cooler because of the wind.
Operation Football will be cool and cloudy in the 40s, but bundle up! It will feel more like 30s!
We’ll dry out for the weekend, but remain unseasonably cool. Our average high is 61 and we may not reach that for the next straight week! Also, we’re keeping a close eye on the projected path of Hurricane Sandy. Midday forecasts for Sandy suggest that after bringing major impacts to the East Coast (Mid-Atlantic especially) with landfall early next week, the circulation of Sandy could wrap in cold air, wind, and moisture as far west as the Hoosier State by Tuesday and Wednesday. If that happens (it’s still an “if”), we could be in for highs in the 40s, lows in the 30s, and showers or drizzle Tuesday/Wednesday. That may mean a damp/dreary Halloween for kids, so this bears watching. And…if it is cold enough, a few flakes can’t be ruled out, especially for northeastern Indiana.
