4:30 PM Radar Tuesday

Thanks to all for taking our poll last night.  A majority of you are enjoying this cool weather for July (56%) but not surprising that over 33% were missing the heat.No doubt a chill in the air early Tuesday – the 4th night below 55° in the city this month a 1° shy of tying a 133 year old record. Some impressive early morning temperatures included:

49°: Greensburg, Shelbyville/Rushville, 48° Crawfordsville, 47° W. Lafayette, Marion.

City missed record low by 1°

AFTERNOON/EVENING SHOWERS AND T-STORMS
July sun vs September-level cool and afternoon showers & t-showers form.  1st of the day formed near Cass/Miami Co at 3:15 PM and growing in coverage quickly by 5 PM. Should see trends diminish after sunset – peaking at about 20% coverage. I’m posting the radar just before 4 PM.

SIGNS OF SUMMER?
Slow warming in the days ahead but not enough to erase the temperature deficit of July 2014 – currently the 2nd coolest on record behind 1947. With little chance of cracking 80° official until Friday – this July has the makings of being the coolest ever. The afternoon high Tuesday in the 70s marked the 15th July afternoon below 80° – most ever.
We could be near normal high temperatures starting Monday of next week.
Warming up in the days ahead.  Near normal early next week
