Autumn Is In The Air.

We're starting to get closer to Autumn. September 21st is the first official day. We have had a lot of weather happen over the past few days, With hurricane Isaac finally dumping some much needed rain in the Midwest! Areas to our southeast saw rainfall over 5" inches in IL, While 1" to 3" inches of rainfall fell in parts of the Indiana / WLFI viewing area.
Isaac's low pressure continues to push off to our west, This is a surface image forecasting the low into Tuesday around 2:am.
As this low continues to move west we will still see cloudy skies through out today. The slight chance of a stray pop up shower cannot be completely ruled out of the question, However any rain we would see would be around a tenth inch or less. No major rainfall to speak of today, Highs will be around 85* degrees in the Lafayette area with a low tonight around 69* degrees. Winds calm between 5 and 10 mph.
As we head into tomorrow (Tuesday) we will see mostly cloudy skies through out much of the day, However as we head into the evening hours / Tuesday night into Wednesday we will start to see clearing skies take place turning from mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies. Expect a high Tuesday around 86* degrees with a low that night around 67* degrees. Winds light between 3 and 5 mph.
So with Autumn just around the corner when will some cooler weather be in the forecast? Well I see 70s as our high to start off next week with lows falling into the 50s at night. Just wait, It'll be hoodie weather again before you know it! ;)
With that in mind, Its time for some Autumn fun in the Hoosier state! Yes Exploration Acres is open once again.
18-acre corn maze with over 8 miles of twists and turns (the largest corn maze
in northwest Indiana!). Exploration Acres is located five miles South of Lafayette, IN at 6042 Newcastle Rd. between I-65 and US 52. I've been there the past three years and plan on heading out there again this season.
Here is the official Exploration Acres site below with all the open days / times.
