Tonight: In Muncie, we saw another day of temperatures that were well above average for this time of year. As we make our way into the evening and overnight hours, temperatures will drop into the lower 40s. Winds will be light out of the southwest, and cloud cover will increase throughout the overnight.
Today: Temperatures top out in the mid 60s today with winds out of the southwest at 10-15mph. Sunshine will be abundant this afternoon, so get outside and enjoy the nice weather!
It's not unusual to be in the 70s for November, but the 80s are almost unheard of! In fact, it's been so warm that we've broken temperature records the past two days! The old records, both from 1999, have been surpassed as temperatures reached above 80 degrees both Sunday and Monday.
Today's high temperature of 73 degrees tied the record high temperature, which was set back in 1975 and in 2008! Compared to this time last year, we were 20 degrees warmer today! It has been unseasonably warm lately, and this trend will continue throughout the weekend and into early next week.
Today: It definitely doesn't feel like November outside! Expect temperatures this afternoon to climb into the lower 70s. High pressure will continue to keep conditions dry and sunny across Central Indiana. It will be a beautiful end to the work week, with plenty of sunshine and light winds out of the south.
Tonight: The Severe Thunderstorm Watch has expired for most of the viewing area, although conditions still remain favorable for pop up showers this evening. Wayne county is still under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 9pm. Rain and storm chances will taper off by midnight, as skies become partly cloudy overnight. Low temperatures will end up in the lower 40s by daybreak. Winds will be breezy out of the northwest at 15mph, gusting up to 25mph at times overnight.
Today: A strong cold front will slide through the state later this afternoon, bringing heavy rain and scattered thunderstorms. Some thunderstorms could be strong to severe. Most of Eastern Central Indiana is under a marginal risk for severe weather. A higher, slight risk of severe weather includes Jay, Randolph, and Wayne counties. The main hazards associated with this weather system include gusty winds, locally heavy rain, and small hail. While the threat of a tornado is low, it cannot be ruled out as a possibility. Make sure to stay weather aware today, as the threat for severe weather exists throughout most of Indiana.
As of 7pm EDT, Hurricane Delta has made landfall in Creole, Louisiana as a category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph. This is the same region that was devastated (and is still recovering) from Hurricane Laura just 6 weeks ago. Storm surge of 10ft+ in coastal regions, as well as flash flooding and hurricane-force wind gusts continue to be the main concerns associated with Delta. As it makes its way inward, Delta will continue to produce widespread rain and storms throughout the south. Portions of Texas and most of Louisiana have already seen heavy rainfall associated with Delta throughout the day today, however, total amounts could end up between 6-10 inches. Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee could also see rainfall totals of up to 4 inches as the system continues to move northeastward.
We are currently tracking Hurricane Delta, a category 2 hurricane, as it makes its way northward in the Gulf of Mexico towards the Louisiana coastline. Portions of eastern Texas and most of Louisiana are seeing impacts from the storm currently, as rainfall totals are expected to be between 6-10 inches. Delta is expected to make landfall later today along the southwestern Louisiana coastline, in the same area that was devastated (and is still recovering) from Hurricane Laura 6 weeks ago. As of 2pm CDT, Delta is located 65 miles south of Cameron, Louisiana, moving northeast at 14mph. Concerns with this system include high storm surge, flash flooding, locally isolated rainfall amounts greater than 12 inches, and sustained hurricane-force winds greater than 74mph.
Today: Expect plenty of sunshine and warmth this afternoon, as temperatures climb to around 80 degrees. Winds will be light coming from the southeast.
Sweater weather is finally here! With high temperatures only reaching the upper 60s today, it definitely felt more like fall! In Muncie, we were 8 degrees below average with a high of 68 degrees. We can expect below average temperatures to continue for the next few days as a cooler air mass from Canada makes its way to the viewing area. This high pressure system brings with it drier conditions and cooler temperatures!
Tonight: Tonight, expect cooler temperatures falling into the mid 50s overnight, with lows in the upper 40s. Clear skies are expected with light winds coming from the east at 5mph.
