Remember that Southern Indiana is nearly the South. I came from Detroit, and I noticed that there was generally a 5-10 degree difference in weather. That might not seem like much, but it essentially meant spring came a month sooner than I was used to, as did winter.
Yea. I should add that I haven't been here for the full here, so there might be some more significant differences that I haven't experienced yet (such as spring coming earlier).
The point that I was trying to make is that if it is 90° here and 85° back east in August, it doesn't make a huge difference. You still will need to run AC, and walking around will be pretty hot. And if in the middle of the night this week its 20° here and 15° back east, the difference doesn't matter much. Either way you'll probably want to run the heat, etc.
If you are coming from some place like Florida, Texas, Arizona, California, etc., then it will be somewhat of a shift if you aren't used it.
