Rain Settles In

Posted By · November 17, 2009 at 11:55 am

Another cool day is ahead for Central Indiana with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s.  Scattered showers are likely, and we’ll see more rain today than we did Monday.  The rain will fall in the Hoosier state through Wednesday, with a slight chance of showers on Thursday.  For now it looks like up to an inch of rain is possible, with some spots receiving more.

If you’re looking forward to another dry stretch, that comes Thursday.  We’ll see mainly dry conditions then.  However, Friday through Sunday, plenty of sunshine will be found with highs in the mid 50s.

Rain Returns

Posted By · November 16, 2009 at 12:43 pm

Highs today will only reach the mid 50s with cloudy skies and scattered showers.  Keep the umbrella and coat handy.  Winds out of the east up to 15 mph will make it feel chillier outside.

Unfortunately we’ll remain cloudy and rainy tonight into Tuesday morning.  If we had clear skies we’d be able to see a gorgeous Leonid Meteor Shower showing in the sky!  Click the link to find out more about viewing times.

Rain looks to stick around through Wednesday, with a slight chance on Thursday.  Overnight temperatures will drop to the mid 40s,  and highs will reach the mid 50s for the week.  By Wednesday we could pick up up to .75″ of rain.  For the most part showers will remain light.

As of right now, we look to dry out for the weekend.

Wet Week Ahead

Posted By · November 15, 2009 at 11:26 am

Highs today will reach about 60 degrees with a mix of sun and clouds.  As we head later into the afternoon, the chance for scattered sprinkles and light showers increases.  Tailgaters won’t see a washout, however, a little rain is possible, especially during the big game between the Colts and Patriots.

Overnight the chance of rain increases as lows fall to the mid 40s.

Scattered showers are likely Monday with a cool high in the low 50s.  The day won’t be completely rain filled, but keeping the umbrella will be a good idea.

More rain is possible Tuesday and Wednesday.  Highs will only reach the mid 50s.

Mainly Dry Weekend

Posted By · November 14, 2009 at 11:18 am

Get out and enjoy the sunshine today!  Highs will reach the mid to upper 60s across Central Indiana today.  We’ll see partly cloudy skies, but winds out of the south will help keep us nearly 15 degrees above average!

Overnight, mostly cloudy skies roll in, and lows stay mild, only dropping to the low to mid 40s.

Sunday, mostly cloudy skies will stick with us for the day.  Highs will only reach the upper 50s, so it’s going to feel cooler.  Late in the day rain will start to appear on the radar.  Tailgating before the Patriots v. Colts game will not be a washout, however, there’s a 30% chance for scattered showers during the game.

Each day next week through Thursday there’s a 30% chance of scattered showers with temperatures in the low to mid 50s.

Bloody Friday…

Posted By · November 13, 2009 at 6:43 pm

Apparently state workers are calling today “bloody Friday” after finding out about government layoffs. Thirty-three people in the Dept. of Administration are losing their jobs…and not all of them know about it since some people are on vacation.

See the story here. Kevin Rader will have more at 6:00 pm on Eyewitness News.

Dry Start to November

Posted By · November 13, 2009 at 1:32 pm

The meteorologists at the National Weather Service have crunched the numbers, and the start of October and November, are drastically different!

Click here to be redirected to the original National Weather Service Page.

While October started out cool and wet across Central Indiana, November is starting out warmer and drier. Here are some interesting comparisons of the first 10 days of each month for the Indianapolis Area:

 

  October 1-10 November 1-10
Average High Temperature 60.5 61.2
  3rd coldest average high for the period 24th warmest average high for the period
Precipitation 2.67 inches 0.01 inches
  12th wettest start 8th driest start

 

 

Other notes:

  • November’s highest temperature of 72 degrees beats October’s warmest of 70 degrees. This is only the 3rd time since 1871 this has happened. The other years were 1977 and 1987.
  • November has seen more days of 70 degrees or higher in November than October. This has only happened once before, in 1888. 

Temperature records for Indianapolis start in 1871.

Looking at other locations around Central Indiana, here are the departures from the average daily temperature for the first 10 days of November:

Sunshine Rolls On

Posted By · November 13, 2009 at 1:26 pm

What a way to kick off the weekend!  Highs today will reach the low 60s with mostly sunny skies.  Saturday, we’ll add a few degrees to that, and keep the sunshine!

If you’re heading out for Operation Football this evening, temperatures will drop into the 40s by 8pm, so prepare to bundle up!

Sunday, mostly cloudy skies make a return and so does a chance of rain.  Highs are expected to reach the low 60s with a 30% chance for scattered showers.  We’ll be watching the timing of the rain for tailgaters!

Through Wednesday we’ll have a daily chance of rain as high temperatures only reach the 50s.
