Weekend weather

Fall colors will emerge soon

NEW ALBANY — It’s the first full weekend of fall and the final weekend of September! There are plenty of festivals going across the Hoosier state this weekend and through October. Plus, fall color will soon be emerging as the daylight fades. The loss of sunlight hurries the process and within another month we’ll hopefully be looking at some vibrant colors. Whether it’s a drive to Floyds Knobs, Brown County or Madison ... Southern Indiana is graced with some beautiful countryside that ignites with red, orange and yellow during the fall season.

The first half of the weekend looks great with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid 80s. High pressure responsible will be shoved to the south and east as a cold front enters from the north. This front will bring clouds to southern Indiana late Saturday and increase our rain chances on Sunday. For those that see the rain — totals should generally be light, under a quarter inch. These are not drought busting rains and much of the area will remain abnormally dry. Clouds will, however, keep temperatures in the low to mid 70s on Sunday. The sunshine returns warming temperatures closer to seasonal averages in the upper 70s into the middle of next week.
