Cooler today with pleasant weather for your work week
Strong storms passed through last night on the leading edge of a frontal boundary but the warm humid air remains for now. That will change by 8pm tonight as a cold front slides into the state. We are not expecting to see anything more than really some light rain as the front passes through.
About last night:
The strongest of the storms hugged the Lake Michigan South Coastline with more than 30 wind damage reports issued for this area. As these cells moved south they weakened with our total rain amounts really showing the trend. Lafayette recorded more than an inch and a half of rain while Indianapolis recorded less than a tenth of an inch. There were no severe reports issued in Central Indiana.
You may be surprised as you step outside today with humid conditions continuing though most of the day. Today will still be about 10 degrees cooler than yesterday’s high of 80 degrees. We are tracking another front also that will bring a blast of cooler air later on tonight. This front will come in with only some light rain showers. Temperatures will plummet though this evening as the area of low pressure slides over the state.
The first day of fall may be the coolest of the next 7 days with highs struggling to hit 70 degrees. By Wednesday highs should be back around 80 degrees. The week is really looking dry with us set in a blocking pattern. High pressure will be located just east of the state with the high book ended by low pressure to the east and west. The clouds from the pattern will look like a Greek omega symbol if viewing satellite data from above.
