What an unbelievable start to October 2019.

Yesterday, our high was 92 — establishing a record for the date. Today’s record may be even more impressive: the record high for the date is 89 back in 1897, a time when William McKinley was in the White House, and the population of Indianapolis was only 105,000. The Soldier’s and Sailors Memorial didn’t even exist then. We should shatter that record today with a high of 92.

Tomorrow could be a record-breaking day as well with a high of 91 degrees.

Our day to watch will be Thursday. A slow-moving cold front that is triggering off severe weather in Nebraska today will be moving into Indiana. Temperatures will be in the 70s and as the front moves through, we could see rain and a shift to a north wind. That means a much cooler, very windy day

Friday will, believe it or not, have a high of only 67. We will keep it cool through the weekend and by Monday, the high will only be…get this...63 degrees!
