INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Wet weather will fill in across the Midwest as we open up the last weekend of October.
An area of low pressure with a tropical connection will continue to move in from the south. Expect widespread rain to fill in Saturday morning, and continue through much of the day. Some thunderstorms, along with locally heavy downpours will be likely at times.
Highs will top out in the upper 50s Saturday afternoon.
Scattered rain and storms will continue as this potent system continues to push through the Midwest. We’ll gradually taper off the rain from southwest to northeast during the overnight, and should be dry by daybreak Sunday.
Total rainfall likely reaches 1″ across the area, and many areas could exceed 2″ by early Sunday morning.
Overnight lows will fall to the upper 40s. Winds will pick up – gusting over 30 mph at times.
A much better day is on tap as we wrap up the weekend. Cloud cover should be pretty thick Sunday morning in the wake of the rain. We’ll gradually kick some of the cloud cover out as we progress through the day. Highs will top out in the lower 60s.
8 day forecast:
Mild temperatures will start off the week, with highs in the middle 60s Monday. A weak front will move through Tuesday, sending highs to the mid 50s. A more potent system will move through Wednesday and Thursday, bringing scattered showers and storms both days, followed by the coldest air of the season. By week’s end we’ll likely see highs failing to reach the 50s, and widespread overnight lows dipping below freezing, bringing an end to the growing season.
