    Indiana Cooldown Follows Rainy Cold Front

    Cooling is aiming for the Hoosier State in the wake of a rainy cold front, but it will not last long.

    The front, which reached the Northwest early on Tuesday, was set to slide away to the southeast by evening, taking the last of the rain and any rare December thunderstorms with it.

    The cooling was sweeping aside a mass of mild air, which warmed the south and east of the state into the 60s on Tuesday. This followed highs in the mid-60s to lower 70s on Monday.

    Wednesday, highs are pegged 10 to 15 degrees lower than those of Tuesday, ranging from near 40 degrees in South Bend to 56 degrees in Evansville, but the downturn in temperature will not be enough to return readings to normal levels.

    The return of mild air from the south will begin on Thursday, sending temperatures up to 20 degrees above normal by Saturday.

    With the late-week warming will come a few outbreaks of rain, welcome to at least some Hoosiers, following a dry month of November.
