FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — High temperatures over the weekend topped out in the upper 70s and lower 80s across northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.
That kind of warmth will be hard to find for quite a while.
Over the course of this week, a pair of cold fronts will make it feel much cooler.
The first cold front arrived Monday and it brought some much needed light rain to the region.
It also brought the first round of cooler air from our friends in Alaska.
The temperature in Fort Wayne early Monday morning was in the middle 60s and the cold front pushed the temperature down into the middle 50s by 3 p.m.
High temperatures will be in the low to mid 60s through the middle of the week and lows will be in the 40s.
Believe it or not, Wednesday will be the warmest day in our 7-day forecast, more typical for mid-October.
The next cold front arrives Thursday and it will bring another round of light rain to the region.
Get the sweaters handy, because it will also bring a batch of cooler air from the Arctic circle to round out the work week.
Highs will struggle in the middle 50s by Friday afternoon and lows will fall into the upper 30s, more typical for early November.
If you plan to attend any high school football games Friday evening, you may want to take a blanket and some hot cocoa.
The long range outlook keeps temperatures well below average into the first full week of October.
