We don't want to make you feel bad, but this flirtation with summer is now, officially, over. To refresh your memory, we hit 78 Saturday and 75 Sunday making this past weekend the warmest weekend of 2014 so far. In fact, when the Indy Eleven kicked the ball at the start of the game with Carolina, it was 73 7:45 in the evening!

Lots of rain falling in Central Indiana this morning but most of the severe weather is in Tennessee and Mississippi this morning. Look for occasional showers and a brief thunderstorm today as temperatures slowly fall all day. Tonight, a few snowflakes could be mixed in with rain but no accumulation will occur.

Lows Tuesday morning will be in the 20s and highs will struggle to return to the 40s. A widespread frost/freeze appears likely Wednesday morning as clouds clear and the wind diminishes.

This also marks a turning point, as the air mass quickly modifies and temperatures return to normal Thursday. The average high is 64.


2006, Severe storms in Indy produced winds of 85 mph.
