A cold front will pass through central Indiana overnight. Ahead of the front, temperatures soared in to the 70°s on strong southwesterly winds.
Interestingly, this makes the fourth time in eight years that Indianapolis has reached 70° or more on this date.
Once the cold front passes, winds will shift around to the northwest and should diminish in intensity. The front will also bring in cooler air for Monday – 10° to 15° cooler.
OCTOBER CONTINUES WARM
The month of October continues to stay much above normal. Through Saturday, October 22, Indianapolis is 6° above normal per day. This is now the 2nd warmest start to October in the previous 42 years and 16th warmest in the previous 145 years of records.
Normal high temperature for October 24… High: 62° Low: 42°
Right now, it looks like near normal and above normal temperatures will be the rule through the end of the month. Cooler air is projected to arrive Thursday afternoon and again Sunday afternoon. However, high temperatures those days will likely occur early in the morning – and will be near normal.
