Rain Moves Out, Winds of Change Bring the Coldest Air Since MayBy
Rainfall totals through 10:30pm reached more than 1″ in Paragon, close to 1/2″ in parts of Indy, and 1/3″ in Carmel. The rain moves out overnight while we’re sleeping.
Early Tuesday, the showers end and winds of change pick up. We could see winds gusting 20-30 mph out of the northwest ushering in the cooler air. Highs Tuesday will feel more like mid-October in the mid 60s.
The cool air peaks Wednesday morning when wake-up temps fall into the low 40s in the city, 30s in outlying spots. The record low for Indy is 38 wet in 1956. We’ll be 30 degrees colder Wednesday morning than we were Monday afternoon!
If skies clear and winds diminish, we’ll have the setup in place for the coldest air since May 10th. While the city may stay in the low 40s, some spots could fall as low as the mid 30s. A patchy frost may be possible in a couple spots like Terre Haute and Crawfordsville.
Our trend for cooler weather may continue later this week, next week, and into the first part of October! The Climate Prediction Center has Indiana in a high probability of below normal temps.
Your WTHR-TV 7-Day shows another cold front moving through Friday into early Saturday bringing another batch of rain. Behind it, we’ll have another cool snap – just in time for the official start of Fall at 10:49 am Saturday. Sunday morning – if it’s not too cloudy – could flirt with upper 30s/low 40s yet again.
