Indianapolis has been very dry for the past three weeks and much-needed rain fell across central Indiana Wednesday morning ahead of a cold front. The cold front that will pass tonight is positioned over western Indiana as of Wednesday afternoon. A few scattered showers will be possible through the evening ahead of the front. Once it passes, winds will shift out of the northwest, cooling us down and bringing in a drier air mass. We’ll be cooler and much less humid Thursday and keep this more early fall-like pattern for the rest of the week.
