Weekend Temperature Swings: A cold front moving through will bring cooler drier air to start your weekend with highs in the 60s and mostly sunny skies.  Sunday, we turn the tide again with a passing shower or t-storm as a warm front moves through – and once it does, we could surge into the low 80s!  We’ll be close to a record high!

Record March: Today’s high of 78 was our 14th day of 70+ heat (the old record was 9 days set in 2007 and 2 other years).  The high (20 degrees above normal) also continued to solidify our hold on the warmest March on record for Indy.  Tomorrow is just a formality before we get that official designation.

More Records Possible to start April: The record high Sunday is 82 set in 2012.  I’m forecasting 81.   The record high Monday is 81 set in 2012.  I’m forecasting 82.

Storm Chances: Return late Monday through Tuesday with maybe a shower early Wednesday…ushering in a 3-day stretch of cooler highs in the 60s.

Have a great weekend,
