The temperatures won’t be much different across the rest of the state.“That’s close to records. Right now the record for Saturday and Sunday is 76. That Saturday record dates back to 1915. The Sunday record dates back to 1999,” said Joe Skowronek, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “It looks like it will be a very nice weekend for November overall. Warm temperatures, sunny skies, and fairly light winds.”Skowronek says drought conditions are improving.“We still have some abnormally dry conditions across much of western Indiana, but the rain is helping,” said Skowronek.Much of the state is drought-free, but there are still some spots that are under a moderate drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Skowronek says more rain is likely on the way next week.“By the middle of the next week, a cold front is coming in, so there might be some showers and thunderstorms with that. Once that passes by Thursday, we should see highs in the 50s,” said Skowronek.Skowronek says there is a small chance that some of those rain showers could become “strong with gusty winds.”Your ABC 57 First Warning Neighborhood Weather Center Forecast:Saturday: Sunny.
