Orionid Meteor Shower and Soaring into the 70s

Tonight skies are clearing and though it will turn chilly (upper 30s to low 40s by morning), you might want to set your alarm a little early to check out the night sky. The annual Orionid Meteor Shower should be a good one with clear skies and no moonlight to pollute the view of what could be up to 25 meteors per hour. The best time for viewing will be between 5am and 7am. For more on the Orionids, check out this video from NASA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zy4DVdfdsw

Sunday is going to be a beauty of a day! We hit 57 today, but could soar to 70 tomorrow!

We’ll build on that warmth for the workweek with highs in the mid to upper 70s. There’s a slight chance of showers and storms Monday and Tuesday – mainly for areas north and west of Indy.

Enjoy our Indian Summer warmth while you can! A strong cold front will bring us a reality check by the end of the week. A front that looked like it would move through late Thursday night into Friday now looks like it may arrive a day later (late Friday into early Saturday) bringing with it scattered showers and storms. Behind that front, highs may only manage 50s Saturday. And though it’s not on your WTHR-TV 7-Day…computer models are showing even colder air ahead for Sunday the 28th. Lows in the 30s and highs in the 40s along with cold wind and possibly some precip may be possible by then. We’ll have to watch that in the coming days…

It’s a great time to go leaf peeping! Our Hoosier Pic at 7 was from Jeff Arsenault who took this shot in Brown County.

And if you love foliage and festivals, head to Brown County’s Foxfire Park Fine Arts Festival. It continues tomorrow. Thanks to Kim Woods-Owens from ThisIsBrownCounty.com for sharing this pic, our Hoosier Pic at 11. We’d love to see your photos.
