Temperature Swings and Showers

By · October 9, 2012 at 1:06 pm

We woke up to frost again, though it wasn’t as cold as yesterday morning.

Thanks to sunshine and southerly winds, we’re rebounding nicely! Temps should top out in the 60s with October-like weather for a change after days of temps more like November.

Don’t get used to the milder air, though. A strong cold front moves through tonight – accompanied by a narrow stripe of showers.

The rain will likely move into Northwest Indiana around 2am and push through the Indy Metro by 7am. By sunrise, the pavement may be wet, but the rain should be over. Most areas will not see much rain, generally only a few hundredths of an inch.

Behind the front and after the showers, get ready for a colder, blustery Wednesday. Highs may only manage mid 50s with winds gusting 20+ mph.

That’s likely to pave the way for another frigid night with lows by Thursday morning dropping into the low 30s. A hard freeze is likely for much of Central Indiana.

The real warmth arrives this weekend…but with a catch. In addition to highs in the 70s, we’ll have rain chances. There could be some rain first thing Saturday morning, then a warm and breezy day Saturday. Then late Saturday night into Sunday morning, t-storms are possible – some could be strong or severe, so that bears watching.

Finally, our Hoosier Pic at noon from Lori Baxter who snapped this gorgeous fall scene on the Sweetser Switch Trail. Share your pic here: https://www.facebook.com/ChikageWindlerFanPage or here https://www.facebook.com/WTHR13
