Visibility is forecast to be under a quarter mile for our northernmost counties and a Dense Fog Advisory for far north central Indiana continues through 9am. Patchy dense fog will develop after 2am and visibility will be under two miles across most of central Indiana Wednesday morning. The day will start foggy and cool but sunshine will dissipate the fog by 10am as temperatures rise.
Clouds have kept temperatures cool so far this week with highs in the 60s for the past two days. For those who prefer cooler weather this has been a nice preview of fall. For anyone who prefers warmer temperatures you’re in luck as well. Abundant sunshine through the day will send temperatures to near 80°. Skies will remain sunny each day this week and we’ll see a warm up as a result.
During an average year we have 19, 90° days and so far his year we’ve had 22 days with a high of at least 90° The last time we were that warm was August 29th and we’ll get close to that early next week.
