Although we cool down, weather still unseasonably warmer for this time of the year

A soggy day expected today with overcast skies this morning before we get some sunshine in the afternoon.  For Indianapolis, only sprinkles are expected for the remainder of the day.  Winds will pick-up this morning and will be between 10 to 15 mph and out of the west for the remainder of the day.  Wind gusts could get close to 20mph.

Today will be the start of a fall like pattern with us possibly seeing the first major frost of the year in Indianapolis over the weekend.  Here is a quick look at local average first frost dates courtesy of the local National Weather Service forecast office.

Low Temperature of 36 degrees or lower

(Patchy frost possible in outlying, low areas)
