Frosty Mornings Possible Sunday and Monday

By · September 22, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Our first Frost Advisory of the season has been issued. It goes into effect Monday morning from 2am to 9am when clear skies and light winds could send temperatures into the low to mid 30s through most outlying areas and upper 30s in the city. A widespread frost is likely. Although an advisory hasn’t been issued for Sunday morning, outlying areas could see patchy frost develop. Protect your plants if you want to be sure they’ll be safe! Cover them or bring them inside.

Here’s a look at forecast lows Sunday morning. 39 in Indy would be the coldest since 35 on April 27th.

And it gets even colder for Monday morning. Our average low is 53!

Here are some “First Frost Facts” for Indy. The National Weather Service uses a temp of 36 for its frost threshold, and we might not get quite that cold officially, but if we do, this would be close to a record earliest first frost! The earliest occurred September 23rd, 1995.

While Friday’s headlines were the severe storms, Saturday was all about wind. Wind gusts as high as 46 mph as recorded on our Lucas Oil Stadium WeatherBug site made the cool 63-degree high feel even chillier!

Gameday temps will be cool, but our winds will be much lighter – with gusts only around 15 mph expected. Highs in the low 60s will be well below the average of 75.

Your WTHR 7-Day shows warmer temperatures on the way, along with daily rain chances Tuesday through Friday.

Finally our Hoosier Pics of the Day. At 6, I featured Joy Toney’s photo of panning for gold in Brown County.

And our Hoosier Pic at 11 from Michael and Dana Russo who spent their Saturday helping build a home in Henryville for a tornado victim. Submit your pic here: https://www.facebook.com/ChikageWindlerFanPage?ref=hl or here: https://www.facebook.com/WTHR13
