Mild Monday, Then Rain and a Major Cool-down

What a great weekend! We hit 78 degrees today, which is exactly the average high for September 16th. Pleasant warmth will be fading soon, though.

We’ll be mild for one more day Monday with lots of clouds and developing afternoon and evening showers. Most areas could see a shower in the afternoon, but heavier rain may not arrive ’til late night ahead of and along a very strong cold front. Rain totals continue to look fairly light – generally between 1/10″ to 1/4″.

When the front rolls through, it will bring a major temp contrast! It’s in Minnesota right now with 80s to the south of the front and 50s to the north!

Our temperature drop will be from mid-September warmth on Monday to mid-October chill on Tuesday. Tuesday also looks blustery with winds gusting 20-30 mph out of the cool northwest.

If winds calm and skies clear enough late Tuesday night into early Wednesday, we could be poised for the first patchy frost of the season for some outlying areas with wake-up temps in the mid to upper 30s! Here in Indy, temps might drop into the low 40s, which would be the coldest since May 10th. For the record, our record low for September 19th is 38 set in 1956.

The rest of your 7-Day brings more unseasonably cool weather, though not as cold as the first shot. Another front brings a chance of rain Friday into early Saturday.

Finally, our WTHR-TV Hoosier Pic at 6 from Shawn and Heather Peterson. They submitted this fantastic sunset shot from Saturday night on our WTHR Facebook page. Share your pic here: or here:
