December is on fire! Indy’s been running 7.5 degrees above average this month. We will tie a record today: 10 60-degree days in December, set in 1889. This come after the record Christmas Day high temp of 66 was tied Saturday. Earlier in the month on December 11th a record high was broken, ahead of the cold front that brought severe weather. Just for perspective: today’s normal high is 38. (Today’s record is 68.)
Two big rain events this week. The first is a big batch arriving Tuesday, with around an inch expected.
Spottier showers will return Wednesday afternoon and evening. Then: another big wave Friday night into the first day of the year. That should send the week’s running rain total up to around two inches.
