Return of Warmth

After mercury readings in the 20s for the past few days, this morning was only a degree under freezing when I rose. Now it is two degrees above the freezing mark.
A warm up is in store as the day proceeds with the temperature rising to the 50s where it will remain for daily highs or higher this Christmas week.

Bone-Chilling Cold

It may be redundant, but what a frosty, frigid morning in the Cornfield. Brr! When I rose around 7 a.m., the mercury was all the way down to 22 degrees. The humidity was at 87 %.
Now three hours later and it is still chilling to the bone. Current temperature is 26 and feeling like 18! Humidity has dropped to 65%.
Christmas week, however, will be much warmer with highs in the 50s.

And how is the weather in your part of the world?

Midweek Forecast


As you can see there is a line of rain storms to the west in Illinois that will soon be making its way into the Cornfield. The chilly weather continues which is in stark contrast to last week’s unseasonably warmer weather.
Heading into the weekend the mercury readings will be much cooler and dropping into the 20s.
Looking ahead to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, thanks to the very powerful El Niño, will seem more like spring than winter. So much for a white Christmas.

Cool Down

After a weekend of record-breaking temperatures far beyond the norm for December, a slight cool down is now occurring across the Cornfield.

The mercury readings will remain relatively mild for December except for Friday when there will be dip below 30 in the overnight hours.

Those watching the prep for the Republican debates later today and tonight may have noticed that it has been quite chilly, uncharacteristic for Las Vegas, Nevada, site of the debates.

Rainy Start to a New Week

Overnight the rain fell across the Cornfield. Slowly it is beginning to move out of our neck of the woods, continuing to move east and north.
The mercury readings continue to be mild and unseasonably warm. Humidity, naturally, remains high.
Off in the distance looking westward, the clouds are beginning to break. Cooler weather waits as the week progresses.

Warm, But Wet


Going to be a warm, but wet day across the Cornfield today. With temperatures in the mid 60s this quite unusual for December in Indiana, but not not unheard.
Rain is moving into the Wabash Valley and will be starting shortly. Hey, it’s better than snow!
