Set Clocks Back Tonight, Cool But Dry Tomorrow

Daylight Saving Time ends tonight, so don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour before you go to bed as we “Fall Back” and get an extra hour of sleep. That means tomorrow, sunrise is at 7:18 and sunset is at 5:39. We’re losing about 3 minutes of daylight each day now. When you change your clocks, replace the batteries in your smoke detectors and weather radios too!

Today we saw rain, sleet and even hail through the Hoosier State. Here are some of the rain totals from our WeatherBug network. The clouds and wintry mix held temperatures down all day. Our high only managed 41 degrees.

Here’s a photo from Becky Crider of some pea-sized hail that fell this afternoon. Rain and thunderstorms combined with very low freezing levels allowed the hail to form, but nothing severe developed. That system has moved out and skies are clearing tonight.

There may be some patchy fog first thing in the morning along with freezing temps to start your Sunday. Temps will be unseasonably cool, but thanks to some sunshine, we’ll be warmer than Saturday with highs in the upper 40s to around 50 degrees. Our average high is 58.

Looking ahead, I’ve added a chance of rain on Election Day Tuesday. Right now, it looks like the best chance will be late – hopefully after the polls close. A shower might linger into early Wednesday, then we’re dry for the rest of the week. There’s also a big warm-up coming. By Friday though the weekend, we could surge into the 60s.

Our Hoosier Pic of the Day comes from Randall Tishner of a fantastic sunrise in Tipton (before the rain and sleet developed). Share your pic here: or here:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
