Finally Feeling Like Fall This Weekend…

Highlights:

  • Cooler start
  • Reinforcing cool air arrives Friday evening
  • Warming back up next week

This Is More Like It…Cooler air worked into central Indiana overnight behind a cold front.  If you ask us, a step out the door this morning feels much better than the past week (we’re ready for fall, y’all)!  A reinforcing push of cool air will blow into town Friday evening and result in Saturday being the coolest day of the weekend with most remaining in the 60s for afternoon highs.

As we open up the new work week, our air flow will back around to the south and result in a new warming trend.  An expanding ridge of high pressure will lead to continued dry conditions next week, along with unseasonably warm to hot temperatures.

Looking longer-term, there’s really no change in sight in the overall weather pattern through at least early October.  That said, there are indications more significant changes loom towards mid-month that could result in more of an impactful shift to cooler times by the second half of the month (warm weather fans, keep in mind the other shoe has to drop sooner rather than later ;-)).  As far as precipitation goes, while the short-term doesn’t offer any hope for dry weather relief, we’re confident of a big flip towards a wet pattern by late autumn and winter.  Hang in there!

Fall Foliage:  The early season cool air we experienced in late August and first half of September ignited early fall foliage across central Indiana.  Unfortunately, the recent heat and expected warmer than average pattern through early October will really stunt that fall color change.  As things stand now, this fall isn’t shaping up to be one of the better color seasons across the area.
