November-like evening with rain moving out, coolest September spell in years
DAMP MONDAY EVENING
Thundery downpours early this afternoon have lowered temperatures back to November levels in spots and delivered up to a half-inch of rainfall. Showers will continue to settle southeast ahead of another cold front.
Rain and a few thunderstorms will diminish later this evening from northwest to southeast around 10 PM in the city and well before midnight.
COOLEST SEPTEMBER SPELL IN 14 YEARS
Mid way point of September and 9 of the first 15 days have been below normal with an average temperature of 68.2°. The recent stretch of cool has produced 3 nights in a row in the 40s, – most so early in a September in 14 years. September 1999 also produced 3 nights below 50 degrees through the 15th.
BETTER DAYS THIS WEEK
A stretch of sunny days and a slow warm up are coming to central Indiana. Temperatures will climb back to the 70s and even reach the 80s by the weekend with little to no rain chance until Saturday evening.
