Warmest air since early October on the way


Due to a stalled front, central Indiana remains divided by an impressive temperature gradient with upper 50s in north central Indiana and low to mid 80s for the southern portion of the state.

A similar set up is on tap Tuesday as the front lingers across the region. Isolated showers and thunder will develop again late tonight/early in the morning along this boundary. No severe weather is expected but small hail can’t be ruled out in heavier cells.

Like today, the minimal rain chances diminish quickly tomorrow and a mostly sunny day is expected. Highs in the Indianapolis metro area will be in the 70s Tuesday with low to mid-80s south of the front.

We’re currently in the midst of our longest sub-80 degree temperature stretch since the fall of 1996/spring of 1997. The streak will be snapped in a big way Wednesday and Thursday, as highs soar well into the 80s. Central Indiana remains rain-free until Friday, as widespread rain/storms develop along a cool front.

This front will stall out across the area Saturday, providing storm chances to start the weekend. Have a great evening.
