Perfect Friday, but Strong Storms Developing

Posted By · April 30, 2010 at 8:47 am

If you love temps flirting with 80 and plenty of sun.  Today is your day!  The only thing throwing a wrench into the forecast is the high pollen forecast and wind gusts up to 40 mph.

As we move into the weekend we are watching for strong to severe storms. 

The first round moves in after midnight tonight and sticks around through early afternoon Saturday.  Nearly the entire state of Indiana is under a slight risk for severe weather Saturday.  Very heavy rain is also likely.  We might see a break for showers and storms Saturday afternoon, but towards the evening, the cold front that is triggering all of this will start to lift back towards us, and the activity ramps up.   Damaging wind and large hail will be the strongest concerns from these storms. 

Sunday morning more heavy rain is likely, and we’ll see showers and storms throughout the day.

Temperatures Saturday and Sunday will reach the low to mid 70s.

Late Friday night through Sunday night 1-2″ of rain is likely, with localized areas picking up 3″ of rain, especially south of I-70.  Localized flooding is possible. 

I’ll be in the weather center all weekend monitoring any changes.  I’ll keep you posted here on the blog, and follow me through Twitter too, @NicoleWTHR.

Monday we dry out and hit the low 70s.

Fund raises $200,000 for Stutzman

Posted By · April 29, 2010 at 2:46 pm

A boost for State Sen. Marlin Stutzman Thursday. The Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF), chaired by U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) announced that it raised over $200,000 for Stutzman’s campaign for the U.S. Senate in Indiana.

Stutzman is up against Dan Coats and several other contenders for a shot on the November ballot. Until yesterday, Stutzman was the only candidate who had already filed his financial disclosure form, although Coats submitted the paperwork Wednesday.

Windy & Warm

Posted By · April 29, 2010 at 7:01 am

Sunshine and 70s, just the forecast I like to see!  Highs will reach the mid 70s today with a few clouds dotting the sky.  Temps are warming up thanks to a southerly breeze, but at times we’ll see wind gusts up to 30mph, so a windy day is expected.

Tonight lows drop to the upper 50s, but stays windy.  Wind gusts up to 25mph are possible.

Friday, we will likely hit the upper 70s to low 80s.   Expect sunshine with wind gusts up to 35mph.  At times, the wind may be a bit stronger than that.

Friday night into Saturday a cold front moves into the state bringing showers and t-storms.  There’s a “slight risk” of severe weather for the state right now.  We’ll be watching for damaging winds and large hail.  More showers and t-storms are likely on Sunday.  We’ll be watching the forecast closely, so stay tuned as we update the chance for severe weather and the timing of the upcoming storms.

Warming Up & Drying Out

Posted By · April 28, 2010 at 7:28 am

This morning was the coolest morning in Central Indiana this month.  Lows hovered around freezing.

We say goodbye to the rain and hello to sunshine.  Highs today will reach the mid 60s with mostly sunny skies.  Allergy sufferers, some bad news, pollen levels return to high levels today through Friday.

Overnight, lows will not be as cool, only dropping to the mid 40s. 

More sunshine is coming tomorrow with highs in the 70s.  By Friday, temps heat up to the 80s!

Late Friday night scattered showers and storms are possible, hanging around Saturday and Sunday too.  We’ll keep you posted on any chance of severe weather as we get closer to the storms moving in.

Drying Out & Warming Up

Posted By · April 27, 2010 at 7:28 am

Most spots in Central Indiana will remain dry today.  A few sprinkles are possible in our southern counties as an area of low pressure tracks south.  Highs will reach the low 60s today with decreasing clouds.

Overnight, skies clear, and patchy frost is possible as temps drop to the mid 30s. 

Wednesday, partly cloudy skies are expected with highs in the low 60s.

We remain dry Thursday, and bump the temperature up to the low to mid 70s.

Friday, the warmth sticks, but through Sunday, scattered showers and isolated t-storms are possible.  We’ll keep you posted on any chances of severe weather as we head closer to the weekend.

Pesky Sprinkles

Posted By · April 26, 2010 at 6:27 am

Sick of the rain?

Well, today’s forecast is better than yesterday’s.  Today we’ll see highs around 60 degrees with patchy pockets of sprinkles and drizzle.  I think we’ll somewhat start drying out this afternoon.  Blame the upper level low that’s moving at a snail’s pace to get out of here!

Overnight, temps drop to the low 40s with partly cloudy skies.

Tuesday, a 30% chance of showers with mostly cloudy skies.  Highs look to hit the low 60s.

Tuesday night temps drop to the mid 30s, we could see some patchy frost across Central Indiana.

Wednesday, we’re dry and in the mid 60s… Thursday sunny and the low to mid 70s!

Then, Friday through the weekend, a good chance of scattered showers and t-storms.  We’ll keep you posted as we get closer to the weekend!

Quick & Healthy Salmon Recipe

Posted By · April 25, 2010 at 11:00 pm

Here is the recipe seen on my Lean 13 segment….Enjoy!!

Lightly Brush a 6oz Salmon Filet with Olive Oil and season with Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder.  Place the fish on the grill and cook on medium temperature for approx 6 minutes per side (depending on thickness).  Remove from grill.  Place salmon filet on pre-soaked cedar plank and place back on the grill for another 3-4 minutes.  This will be enough time to enpart the cedar plank flavor.

If you don’t have a Cedar Plank just follow the Grilling directions. Enjoy!

Scattered Showers & Storms Sunday

Posted By · April 25, 2010 at 7:06 am

What a welcome home!  I just got back from vacation, and I am greeted by tons of green (nice to see everything blooming), and rain!

Highs today will reach the low 60s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Severe weather is not expected.  However, expect some showers/storms to contain very heavy rain.

Overnight, temps cool off to the upper 40s are we’re waiting on an upper level low to push off to the east (and end our rain chances).  Still plan on scattered shower activity.

Monday, that pesky low is moving to the east, but not fast enough… so we’ll continue to see scattered showers will highs in the upper 50s.

Tuesday, we start to dry out, but still have a 30% chance of showers, highs will hit the low 60s.

We get the sun back Wednesday with temps in the low 60s… Thursday we’re back in the 70s.

Then, Friday, a chance for scattered showers and storms.
