Out With the Rain, In With the CoolBy
Our rain has ended in Indy and the last showers should clear the state of Indiana by midnight. Rain totals ranged from one hundredth in Manilla to just over a quarter inch in Danville on our SkyTrak13 WeatherBug Network. Indy picked up 0.15″ officially at the airport.
Now we’re dealing with a major cool-down. Our high Friday afternoon hit 72 degrees, but behind a strong cold front, we had fallen to 43 by 11pm. Temps will continue to gradually fall into the upper 30s to low 40s across the state by morning. That means a chilly start for the Race for the Cure and Carmel Marathon in the morning.
We’ve got a cool weekend ahead. By afternoon, highs only manage 50s each day. The average high is 65 degrees.
If skies are clear enough Saturday night into Sunday morning, you might get to see some shooting stars! The Lyrid Meteor Shower peaks Saturday night and coincides with the New Moon – which means the moon won’t interfere with viewing the meteors. The only problem may be some clouds that could try to sneak in. Look toward the eastern sky near the constellation Lyra anytime after 10pm until dawn. 10-20 meteors per hour can occur on average, but many are possible.
We’ll stay cooler than average until midweek. We could even have some patchy frost in spots Monday morning. We’ll also be dry until late Tuesday. From Tuesday night through Friday, a front may meander around Indiana bringing rain chances each day, most likely on Wednesday and Friday.
