The stratus cloud layer over central Indiana is slow to break down today, and will keep much of area shy of hitting 80 degrees. However, temperatures will still climb into the middle 70s and mark the warmest start to October in six years.
Areas that see better breaks in the cloud deck will shoot into the upper 70s. Evening temperatures will be pleasant if you like it warmer than normal.
Speaking of… the normal high is 71 for October 1st and drops to 60 degrees by Halloween. Low temperatures the next several nights will be near the average high for early October.
Colder air arrives Sunday and next week will look and feel the part of fall. We’ll have an updated 7 day forecast later this afternoon – Sean Ash
