INDIANAPOLIS -- Temperatures have been running well above normal for much of the fall season so far.  In fact, in Indianapolis the temperatures has yet to dip into the 30s.  On average that should have already happened.  While there is no real cold air in sight, the next few weeks the cold air will get here eventually and we’ll see our first widespread freeze.

 A widespread freeze usually occurs when the temperature hits 32 degrees.  The average date for that in Indianapolis is Oct 14.  In Bloomington it is a little later on Oct 24th.  To the north in Kokomo it is Oct 12th. We will safely get past all these dates with ease.


For those who love the cold at average first day most see temperatures in the 20s it is right around Halloween.  For those of you who want to dig into the stats further to see about the earliest and latest freezes, click here.
