Thursday Indianapolis hit 90° for the 9th time this year. In fact the 92° high was the warmest reading in the city since August 26th of last summer. This marked the latest 90° temperature since 94° on September 23, 2010. As expected we were closer to the daily record high (96°/2010) than the average high (76°).

Due to a stagnant upper air pattern our daily weather changes very little from today to Tuesday night. Expect highs near 90°, low 65-70°, abundant hazy sunshine, and only a 10% chance of late day showers.

We continue to advertise a significantly cooler pattern late next week with the day of transition being Wednesday. That's when an expected cold front arrives but not before highs hit the 80s again. Though some scattered showers or thunder look certainly won't be enough to off-set the dry spell the western half of the state has experienced since mid-July.

Many locations from Indy-westward are 1" to 3"+ below normal as Moderate Drought conditions emerged. This is something we'll need to follow closely going forward... and likely ensures a narrow time for peak color/volume of leaves this autumn due to added stress on trees.

If you're a fan of autumn air the wait will be over this time next. Beginning next Thursday we'll have multiple days of highs near 70 and lows in the 40s to near 50. Be patient - Sean Ash
