It's been an unseasonably chilly day through central Indiana.

With a low of 34° this morning, it was the coldest start since April 15th. We only reached 54° this afternoon making it the coolest high temperature since May 12th.

It's time to pull out the extra blankets -- overnight tonight will be clear and chilly with lows falling into the upper 30s.

A Frost Advisory will be in effect for the southern half of the state overnight from 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. with temperatures set to drop into the mid 30s. Widespread frost is expected. Bring plants inside if possible or keep them covered to prevent damage.

A cold dome of air will begin to shift northeast for Sunday allowing for slightly warmer temperatures. Staying sunny and breezy with highs back in the low to mid 60s.

High temperatures will range from the low to mid 60s through the state tomorrow.

Another cold front will push through late Sunday, early Monday although this one lacks moisture and will be less intense. It stays sunny for Columbus Day with slightly cooler highs in the lower 60s.

We'll warm back to near 70 Tuesday afternoon before another cold front brings rain chances late Tuesday into Wednesday morning.

Temperatures drop behind the front for Wednesday with highs only in the mid 50s. With the exception of the warmer day Tuesday, the forecast for the next several days remains below average.

Sunshine and highs in the 60s return for the remainder of next week. The next chance of rain moves in late Saturday looking ahead to next weekend.
