Plainfield, IN, to Rolla, MO

Today is another travel day for us.  We made it a little past Indianapolis last nigh, into Plainfield, IN.  We encountered no significant precipitation, though there was a foggy mist in the air when we arrived at the hotel in Plainfield.   Once we were settled in the hotel, I went for a walk, and needed a flannel shirt, and my leather jacket off and on throughout the walk.

This morning, I got up before sunrise and went for a run.  It was actually warmer this morning than it was last night.  It was still misty and foggy, and will likely remain so for a good part of the morning.  Here is a view from the Comfort Inn in Plainfield:

The National Weather Service offices show overcast skies, still winds and cool temperatures.  We will be in and out of rain throughout our drive to Rolla, but otherwise, there is no major weather events to speak of.

The satellite imagery shows a contrast from yesterday- overcast skies along our entire route:

Also, the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) Mesoscale Analysis Graphics show that there is a weak warm front draped across Iowa and Nebraska, north of our route.  We will be in the warm sector (in this case, the wet sector) of this system.

The Pressure Chart shows that there is low pressure over the plains in the form of a developing Mid-Latitude Cyclone.

I think we will have wet travels today, but, thankfully, no winter weather.

Thank you for reading my post.
