Changes Around the Corner

Posted By · November 23, 2009 at 10:02 am

Another above average temperature day is ahead for us!  Highs will reach the mid 50s with mostly cloudy skies.  Don’t expect to see as much sun as we did over the weekend.

More patchy fog is possible tonight into tomorrow morning as highs Tuesday reach the mid to upper 50s.  Late Tuesday scattered showers move in to Central Indiana.

Wednesday the wet pattern continues with highs in the low 50s.

Wednesday night into Thursday morning a wintry mix is possible, and for Thanksgiving Day, temperatures only rebound to the low 40s.

We’ll be watching the temperatures closely, especially with so many people hitting the roads!  I think a few slick spots are possible 0n bridges and overpasses.  But, we are not looking for snow to stick at this point!

At this point, we look to dry out for Friday and the weekend.

Sun-tacular Day Ahead!

Posted By · November 22, 2009 at 11:26 am

Highs will reach the upper 50s with mostly clear skies across Central Indiana today.  A gorgeous day is in front of us!

Overnight, clouds will be on the increase as lows drop to the mid 30s to around 40 degrees.

Monday, we look to stay mainly dry, but cloudy skies will take over the forecast.  There’s a slight chance for a few isolated showers, but we’ll see plenty of dry time too.

A better chance of a soaking moves in late Tuesday, and sticks through Wednesday. 

For Thanksgiving a 30% chance of scattered showers is possible.  Highs will only reach the low 40s, brr!  We might see a few snow flurries, but nothing that will accumulate.

Lovely Weekend Shaping Up

Posted By · November 21, 2009 at 11:39 am

Above average temperatures and plenty of sunshine, count me in!  Highs today will reach the mid 50s across Central Indiana with partly cloudy skies. 

If you’re headed to Bloomington for the Old Oaken Bucket Game, temps will reach the mid to upper 50s.   It will be a wonderful day to tailgate, and no need to worry about rain!

Overnight lows will drop to the upper 30s.

Sunday, more sunshine is coming our way with highs in the mid to upper 50s.

Our next chance for rain moves in Tuesday. 

Right now a few scattered showers are possible on Thanksgiving (don’t get too hung up on that, the forecast could change!).  We’ll be watch your travel forecast carefully!

Rain Finally Goes Away!

Posted By · November 20, 2009 at 2:01 pm

A mix of sun and clouds is ahead for Central Indiana today with highs in the low 50s.  No rain!

Saturday, that temp bumps up to the mid to upper 50s with partly cloudy skies.

Lows Saturday and Sunday morning will dip to the upper 30s, so it’s going to be chilly.

And Sunday, we’ll see highs in the mid 50s with a very slight chance for a few afternoon showers.  Our next best chance of rain arrives Monday night.

Enjoy the dry time while it’s here!

Bundle Up Yet Again

Posted By · November 19, 2009 at 10:25 am

Another day of clouds, scattered showers and cool temps are ahead for us.  Highs today will only reach the upper 40s with cloudy skies and a chance for scattered showers.  Today will be very similar to Wednesday, so the entire day will not be a washout.  But especially this afternoon watch for rain.

Friday the sun finally comes back, and so does a little warmth!  Highs will hit the low 50s.

Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, get ready for the mid 50s with partly cloudy skies.

Late Monday our next chance for rain moves in.

Soggy Forecast Sticks

Posted By · November 18, 2009 at 10:09 am

Highs today will only reach about 50 degrees with cloudy skies and scattered showers.  We’re not looking to add a lot of rain to the bucket after late morning, but still we could see some showers.

Overnight lows drop to the upper 30s… brr!  A few showers are still possible.

Thursday, the chance of rain drops to about 30%, so we’ll start to dry out.  Highs will still be cool, only reaching the upper 40s to around 50 degrees.

If you’re hoping for a dry weekend, a change is coming… Friday and Saturday highs will reach the low to mid 50s with partly cloudy skies.  However, a slight chance for rain moves back into the forecast for Sunday.
