The Week Ahead

Curtis Smith

Itís November

So far, and admittedly it’s a small sample size, this month has been typical in one way, but not in another. Normally, November is when things turn cold for good. So far, we are seeing signs of that, as highs have routinely stayed shy of 50 degrees.

The unusual part is the sunshine. November is usually one of the cloudiest months and the first time of the season that the sun starts to lose the battle to persistent cloud cover. So far, that has not been the case. The sun is making its presence known but having little effect on temperatures. Of course, it is fall in Indiana, and things are subject to change at a moment’s notice – sometimes less.

Weather wise: Tuesday is Election Day, an important weather day, as more people head outside than they typically do on a Tuesday. This year, the weather won’t provide you an excuse to not vote. It looks sunny and chilly on Tuesday.
