Fall Chill For Start Of Autumn

Here are the results from the heavy rain from Friday night, that was also accompanied by damaging wind and large hail in spots.  Many locations picked up over a .50″.  The official Indianapolis total of 1.32″ puts the city’s August/September combined rainfall into the Top 5 wettest for that time period.

Though I don’t expect heavy rain today, showers are possible as another upper-level disturbance races through central Indiana.  Gusty wind and cloud cover will also be associated with this feature.  Though daytime highs will creep into the lower 60s, it will never feel that warm due to the 15-30 mph blustery breeze.

It will be chilly for the Colts tailgate Sunday morning, with lows near 40.  However, a brighter sky and calmer wind should make for a pleasant finish tomorrow with highs around 60.  Patchy frost is still in the cards for Monday morning.  As the center of high pressure settles over top the region, allowing for maximum radiational cooling, morning lows should drop into the 30s area wide Monday morning.  That same high pressure will also provide one of the better days in the 7 day forecast…before a wet pattern develops during midweek.  Have a great day and weekend!
