WARMER NIGHT

We enjoyed three straight mild mornings and in some locations chilly starts. For the second straight morning, temperature dipped into the forties in Zionsville and in Crawfordsville.

We are adding some humidity late Tuesday afternoon but it is only temporary. Clouds will increase tonight but most likely not yield much rainfall.   Showers are possible early Wednesday as a cold front sags south and through the state. A wind shifting frontal passage is expected in Indianapolis between 7 and 9 am.

Timing is everything and the early morning frontal passage signals limited rainfall. With some heating by late morning a few more showers and even a thundershower is possible mainly south of I-70. Bottom line is rainfall coverage may reach 20-30% of the area. Most of us will miss out on the rain.

HEATING UP TO END 'SUMMER'

Cool-offs are coming but will be quite brief in the extended forecast. We enter the final week of summer and there are signs we will get a push of late season warmth especially next week. An overall warmer than normal pattern is expected through the next 6 to 10 days centered on September 19th through the 23.
