A different weather mode today. Enjoy the silence! A light wind and saturated surfaces combine for some patchy morning fog. (Mental note: Saturated Surfaces is a good potential band name.)
The silence may be shattered briefly with an isolated, pop-up type of shower or storm in the afternoon. The short-term modeling is painting some precip over the northeast corner of the state. Here’s a 3pm projection.
Today will be the warmest day of what has been a cooler-than-average May. We are not alone. (Graphics via weatherbell.com.)
That’s ahead of the first of two cold fronts. The first moves through central Indiana Thursday. Behind it: highs in the 60s Friday. The second map shows a front arriving Friday. That brings showers Friday night and 50s Saturday!
