SOME LIGHT RAIN OVERNIGHT
Clouds and a times some passing drizzle Friday evening will increase to a few spotty showers overnight. A southbound cold front from Iowa will slip through the state early Saturday morning. The front signals a change to the stubborn, pattern that delivered the cold air. Rain showers would be brief and rather light ending around sunrise.
Waiting for May? It really in not fair considering the cold winter we suffered through but May warmth is on hold. This is historic, it if the first time in 105 years that the May 1st and 2nd high temperature was this cool (54° or colder), the year the Indy Motor Speedway was constructed. Only 4th time in 143 years!
The passing front Saturday morning will provide drying conditions at the surface and aloft. Sunshine is coming back and with it temperatures near normal! Skies will brighten Saturday morning as winds gust over 25 miles per hour by afternoon. Afternoon temperatures will rise into the middle to upper 60s in the afternoon. The normal high this time of the year is 69°. Thursday and Friday felt more like mid to early March weather.
80° WARMTH ARRIVES NEXT WEEK
210 days and counting since the last 80° day – October 4th 2013. The string ends next week as a warm front pushes north of the state Wednesday afternoon. Still on track since last week – high temperature will crack 80° Wednesday and Thursday.
