Mid Week Showers Followed By A Pop Of Cool Air…

Mid and high level clouds are streaming overhead this evening and will help set up a brilliant sunset across central IN.

Moisture will continue to be transported northward Wednesday, courtesy of a gusty SW breeze at times.  As the approaching cold front interacts with the moisture return, scattered showers will “blossom” across the area Wednesday night into the wee morning hours Thursday.

12Despite the chilly air that will be with us to wrap up the work week, ensemble data is in excellent agreement on a significant warmer than average regime developing under a big eastern ridge in the 6-10 day.  This will likely promote highs into the lower 80s next week for a few days.  Impressive, no doubt, considering we’ll be rumbling through the second half of October by that point.
