Frost advisory issued for early Sunday, temperatures to dip to mid-30s
Temperatures will continue to tumble here in central Indiana as this cold air takes over. The high in Indianapolis only hit 49°F today which put us at levels we’d typically see in late November. Plus, this is the first time we’ve failed to reach 50°F since April 15th! Lows should fall into the mid to low 30s and this means some patchy frost across the state.
The frost advisory begins at 3 AM and will continue until 9 AM. Here’s a list of the counties included:
Bartholomew, Benton, Boone, Brown, Carroll, Clay, Clinton, Daviess, Decatur, Delaware, Fountain, Greene, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Henry, Howard, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Knox, Lawrence, Madison, Marion, Martin, Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Owen, Parke, Putnam, Randolph, Rush, Shelby, Sullivan, Tippecanoe, Tipton, Vermillion, Vigo, Warren [IN] till Oct 05, 9:00 AM EDT
SUNDAY: After a frosty, cold morning, temperatures will improve a bit from how we started the weekend. We’ll top out in the mid to upper 50s on Sunday. Skies will be partly cloudy and some isolated showers cannot be ruled out during the afternoon hours. Winds won’t be as gusty as what we saw on Saturday but we’ll still pick up winds at 5 to 15 mph from the southwest.
EXTENDED: Highs should be in the upper 60s for early October. The weekend temperatures prove to give us a true cold snap and likely our first frost of the season for many locations. Temperatures will slowly climb this week and be back to normal by Wednesday. As for rain chances, we’ll definitely need to keep an umbrella on standby. Scattered showers will be possible on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday will be a dry day in the forecast but then another wave of rain returns to the state for Thursday.
