One More Mild Day

Sun and 70° warmth is perfect anytime of year in my book… but even more so in November!  Saturday’s 72° in Indianapolis was more than 15° above normal, and just shy of the daily record of 75°.  Sunshine a breezy south wind helped produce our warmest day since late October.

The Sunday planner for Veteran’s Day includes a good amount of sunshine, and one last unseasonably warm day.  Morning temperatures will be near 50°, with a rapid rise into the 60s… with highs again flirting with 70° in most backyards by late day.  Clouds will increase toward sunset (5:32pm) and serve as our first hint of chilly changes for the work week.

Overcast will blanket Central Indiana by midnight tomorrow/early Monday morning, and all bets will be off for dry weather west of I-65.  This rain will be forming and spreading east along a sharp cold front.

Rain will overspread the entire area by 7am Monday… making for a very wet commute to work and school.  Notice the mixed precip in/around Lafayette as the polar air catches up to frontal moisture.  Don’t be shocked to see a few flakes, or a brief period of light snow, before the precip shuts down completely during Monday afternoon.

However, The big story is the temp tumble that ensues in the wake of frontal passage mid/late Monday morning.  Temperatures Monday afternoon will be nearly 30° colder than Sunday at the same time… with the official daytime likely occurring at midnight.

Sunday is my choice for “pick-of-the-week” and Monday gets a trophy for being most raw!  20s dominate the 7day forecast lows, beginning as early as Tuesday morning.  But notice there’s plenty of sunshine down the road after a good .50″-1.25″ falls Monday.  Enjoy the evening and thanks for stopping our weather blog!
