Rain, Rain Go Away!

If you’re looking forward to the weekend, the weather will somewhat cooperate!

The heaviest rain has pushed out of the metro this morning, and we’ll see a chance for scattered showers the rest of the afternoon.  It’s going to be cloudy and windy with highs only in the low to mid 60s.  Temperatures will start to drop in the afternoon, so much colder air is getting ready to settle in.

For Operation Football tonight, it’s going to be damp, drizzly, windy, and cool.  Temperatures will be in the low to mid 50s.

Saturday highs will only reach the upper 40s to around 50 degrees after an overnight low in the low to mid 40s.  Pockets of scattered showers are still expected as this system finally pushes out.

Sunday, we warm up into the mid to upper 50s with partly cloudy skies, but we’re already watching for our next round of rain Monday.

Trick or Treat

Is your little one getting antsy to fill up their cauldrons with candy?

Little ghouls and boys across Central Indiana are picking out their costumes and parents are getting ready for the massive sugar rush!

Stretch of Rainy Days

I wish I could bottle Wednesday’s 70 degree weather, but unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.

Get ready to carry the rain gear around for the next couple of days.  Highs today are expected to reach the mid 60s while rain showers and scattered thunderstorms develop as we head into the afternoon. 

The rain sticks around through Friday, and at times, it will be heavy.  Temperatures are going to tumble too!  We’ll only see highs in the low 60s Friday.

Saturday, rain showers come to an end in the morning, but then we’re left with temperatures only around 50 degrees.

Some spots could pick up one to two inches of rain starting today through Saturday.

Never too old to Boogie!

images-5On Monday, I visited Crestwood Village West, a senior living community that had a strong emphasis on staying fit! It was refreshing to see that there is a new way of looking at life after the age of 55. They had numerous types of activities that people could participate in to get active and fit. One resident, Hal was a bowler for many years but for the past few years was too weak to do so. He committed to the fitness program, is now bowling again and loving it! If you or someone you know is 55 or older and inactive, I challenge you to take that first step towards a healthy/active lifestyle. Results can be garnered at any age so start moving! Here is a link to information I put together for older adults looking to get fit: http://www.wthr.com/Global/story.asp?S=5195424

Go Getem!

Life Through A Microscope

If you squint really, really hard it’s there… no really!

There are millions of things we miss everyday because they’re too small to see.  I’m sure it’s a good thing we don’t see the germs that are on our keyboards, or the mouse you’re touching right now… eek!

But, there are beautiful things the naked eye misses!  Nikon has just released photographs from their 35th Small World competition.  Click here to see the photographs through a microscope, you won’t be disappointed. 

Under the Weather

It’s terrible to be “under the weather” and be a meteorologist.

Under the weather… boy, does that apply to me.  Well, technically it applies to my voice.  If you’ve tuned into Sunrise this week, you may have noticed something missing from Eyewitness News, my voice. 

I feel fine, but my voice has decided to take a vacation.  There is nothing more frustrating than having to talk for a living, and not being able to!  Just work for two minutes for a weather forecast, please!

I’ve been doing everything, chicken noodle soup, hot tea with honey and lemon.  And, it’s still on a beach somewhere.  I’m willing to take any suggestions!  One viewer suggested adding a little Jack to my tea! 

The good news in this whole situation?  At least I don’t have a black cloud following me.

Nerdy Number Crunching

I’ll admit it, I’m a weather nerd, but that’s going to benefit you with some interesting tidbits about today’s warm up!

Highs are expected to hit the low to mid 70s across Central Indiana today.

This will be the first 70 degree day we’ve had in October!

The last time we were in the 70s was back on September 27th.

In Indianapolis for the first 18 days of the month, we are tied for the 2nd coldest start to October on record.  And, it’s the coldest start since 1987.

On October 18th we tied a record for the coldest high temperature of 44 degrees that was set back in 1875.

I wish I could say our streak of 70 degree days was continuing, but unfortunately, the temperatures will once again come crashing down.  Rain moves in tomorrow with highs only around 50 degrees by Saturday.  I guess we’ll take what we can get!

The 70s are Back!

Get out your tie-dye it’s time to celebrate these warmer temperatues!

Highs today will reach the low to mid 70s with mostly sunny skies.  Talk about an incredible day ahead!  It’s going to be a bit breezy with winds out of the South up to 15 mph, but that’s what’s pumping the warm air our way!

Tonight, we cool off to around 50 degrees with partly cloudy skies.

Thursday is a day of change across Central Indiana.  At this point it doesn’t look like the day will be a complete washout, but the best time to stay dry will be in the morning.  Highs will still reach the mid 60s, but rain and scattered thunderstorms move in for the afternoon.

The rain will continue through Friday, as temps drop to the low 60s.

For the weekend a few rain showers could be left over Saturday with a high only around 50 degrees.  I guess it’s back to Fall reality!  Sunday we’ll start to warm up a bit into the mid to upper 50s, and also start to dry out.

Woo-Hoo! Mild Temps Move In

Are you ready for a nice day of sunshine? Start planning your time outside now!

Highs today will reach the mid to upper 60s across Central Indiana with partly cloudy skies.  It won’t be as windy today, but a breeze out of the South up to 15 mph will continue to pump warm air into the area.

Tonight, it won’t be chilly, as a few clouds stick around and lows drop into the mid 40s.

Here’s the good news for tomorrow… most spots look to hit the low 70s!  It will be breezy with wind gusts up to 25 mph, but overall, a nice day is in store.

The change in the forecast comes Thursday when showers and thunderstorms roll in late in the afternoon.  Rain continues Friday and temperatures cool down.  This weekend highs will only be in the 50s.

So, make sure to enjoy this brief warm up while it’s here!

It’s About Time!

Finally, warmer weather will be coming our way this week!

The average high this time of year is 65 degrees.  Today is the 23rd day in a row that we’ve been below average, but we’re ready to break that streak this week!  Highs today will reach 60 degrees.  We’ll see breezy winds out of the South, at times gusting up to 25mph.

Tonight, temperatures won’t be as cold, under partly cloudy skies dropping to the low to mid 40s.

Here’s where the nice weather really begins!  Highs tomorrow will reach the mid 60s, and Wednesday we’re aiming for 70! 

Our next chance of rain develops Thursday.
