Hello, and good evening. Today, we are returning from our western sojourn to spend some time working on some more Midwestern climatology.
At 953PM, ET, Muncie was reporting a temperature of 53 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. High pressure has descended upon the area after a couple of turbulent days and is allowing for clearing skies. A thin layer of high clouds will prevent temperatures from cooling off much more than they have already tonight.
The thing to look at on Wednesday will be how effective insolation alone can be in warming things up. A trough developing over the Plains and the ridge shifting to the east will allow for a bit more warm advection. This will mean warmer temperatures, but should also mean a stickier environment.
Tomorrow – Mostly sunny, High 65, Low 42
Thursday – Warmer, a touch more humid, High 73, Low 44
TWC: Tomorrow – Sunny, High 65, Low 43
Thursday – Mostly cloudy, High 71, Low 46
AW: Tomorrow – Plenty of sun High 64, Low 42
Thursday – Sunshine and some clouds High 72, Low 44
NWS: Tomorrow – Sunny High 64, Low 42
Thursday – Mostly sunny High 70, Low 45
WB: Tomorrow – Sunny, High 64, Low 42
Thursday – Partly cloudy, High 70, Low 45
WN: Tomorrow – Mostly Sunny High 64, Low 45
Thursday – Partly cloudy High 70, Low 45
FIO: Tomorrow – Partly cloudy overnight. High 64, Low 40
Thursday – Mostly cloudy throughout the day. High 70, Low 42
I am leaning towards a warmer solution, because we are approaching a good time of year for the sun angle, and what it can do for temperatures. Here is the satellite imagery, with a tendril of high clouds spilling into the Ohio Valley.
