Gradual Warm-Up, Mainly Dry Week Ahead

By · August 19, 2012 at 11:08 pm

What a weekend! We enjoyed cool mornings, mild afternoons, and a gorgeous sunset to finish things off on Sunday. I snapped this pic from White River State Park Sunday at dusk. Highs for the last 3 days have been in the upper 70s, but we’ll nudge things up a smidge for the work week.

We’ll start Monday off on a cool note with 50s for the kids at the bus stop, but plan on another nice rebound with a high around 80 by afternoon.

While most areas will be dry Monday, there’s a weak front that could trigger some very isolated showers by afternoon, so I’m holding on to a 10% chance of rain. If any showers develop (much as we saw with the couple that developed in Western Indiana Sunday afternoon), they’ll probably only drop a few hundredths of an inch of rain.

While we’re at a 3″+ surplus of rain for August, the annual precip deficit is more than 7″, so we can use any rain coming our way. Aside from the 10% chance Monday, and even lower chance Tuesday (mainly east), most places will have to wait until next weekend for a decent chance of rain.

After 10 straight days of at or below average temperatures with a couple more to come, we’ll see temps warm above average mid to late week. Friday looks like the warmest day of the week with highs in the upper 80s to near 90.

Finally, our Hoosier Pic of the Day Sunday from Boone County. The combination of sunflowers and sunset made a gorgeous scene! Thanks to Regina Hughes-Garner for sharing her pic! Submit yours here: https://www.facebook.com/ChikageWindlerFanPage?ref=hl or here: https://www.facebook.com/WTHR13
