Highs Soar into the 70s Despite Scattered Showers & Storms

By · October 23, 2012 at 7:10 am

Around 7am, we had some scattered showers and storms on Live Doppler 13 Radar across Central Indiana, but even with the rain, morning temps were in the mid to upper 60s! That’s warmer than our average high this time of year: 63. Here’s a link to radar at WTHR.com so you can see where the storms are now: http://www.wthr.com/weather

Rain is most likely morning through early afternoon. That means if you’re heading to the Indiana Fever victory parade, plan on mostly cloudy skies with the chance of  rain. Temperatures at noon should be in mid 60s.

Later today, despite the clouds and showers, we  may still manage highs in the mid to upper 70s, around 15 degrees above average.

Tomorrow, we’ll take the rain chances out and bring in more sunshine. That means temperatures could get even warmer and approach record territory. The record for tomorrow is 81 set in 1963. Thursday could be a near-record day as well. I’m forecasting 81 and the record is 82 set in 1963.

Our Indian Summer comes to an abrupt end late Thursday night into Friday morning with a strong cold front bringing a major cool-down along with rain and thunderstorms. We could get up to 1/2″ of rain Friday with highs struggling to reach 60. Saturday may start with a shower and highs may only reach 50s. Then Sunday into next week, our highs may only manage 40s with lows in the 30s. As for Halloween Wednesday, for now, I’m leaning mostly cloudy and low 50s, but we’ll have to watch carefully the possibility of what could turn into a hurricane on the East Coast. Depending on its track, our Halloween weather could be more pessimistic.

Have a good one!
