Conditions this afternoon will remain mostly cloudy with a high near 50°. While an intermittent shower is possible this afternoon, the greater likelihood for rain in the forecast area will be sometime this evening, as a more pronounced complex of showers enters from the west. Rain accumulation looks to be on the low side, but total rain accumulation over the past two days will amount somewhere around .75″. Rain will exit the area over night, leaving mostly cloudy conditions and a low of 37°.
A fast moving disturbance will quickly arrive from the north and protrude through the state on Wednesday. While major impacts are not expected, a few showers will be possible midday. A few peeks of sun will be possible between any shower activity. Expect temperatures to struggle to get above the upper 40’s, making this a day that you’ll surely want to bundle up for. Temperatures are expected to rebound for Ball State’s home football game on Thursday evening vs Toledo, with kickoff temperatures in the mid 60’s.
The next major system is setting up to enter the region during the morning on Saturday. This Low Pressure system will bring with it both rain and cooler temperatures yet again. Overnight lows are expected to be in the low to mid 30’s for Saturday and Sunday, so we are watching the potential for the long awaited first freeze of the fall.
