Scattered Thunderstorms Thursday

Posted By · May 27, 2010 at 6:09 am

Each day this week we’ve included a chance of rain in the forecast.  Maybe the isolated thunderstorms didn’t pop over your hometown, but, we’ve seen little t-storms develop all week.  Today, everyone has a better chance of seeing some activity.

Highs today will reach the mid 80s with scattered thunderstorms, especially this afternoon.  As a cold front moves through, t-storms are expected to pop.  Some storms will contain heavy rain, a lot of lightning, and small hail.  We’re not expecting severe weather at this time.

We’ll dry out tonight as we lose daytime heating.  Overnight lows drop to the upper 50s. 

Patchy fog is possible early Friday morning.  If you’re heading to the track for Carb Day, highs will hit the low 80s.  The best part about the forecast (in my opinion), lower humidity!

Saturday, mostly sunny skies and highs low 80s.

Race day we’ll see temps hit the low 80s.  There’s a 20% chance for isolated thunderstorms.

More rain moves into the forecast next week.

Thursday, a better chance for more scattered shower and storm activity with highs in the mid 80s.

We dry out for the weekend as highs hit the low 80s.  Sunday, there appears a to be a 20% chance of an isolated t-storm.  We’ll watch the Race Day forecast closely!

Sticky Icky Humidity

The heat and humidity aren’t going anywhere.  Prepare for another hot and humid day across Central Indiana with highs in the mid to upper 80s.  There’s still a chance for isolated afternoon thunderstorms.  Most spots will remain dry.

Overnight, skies clear but it remains muggy with lows in the mid 60s.

Wednesday, another day in the mid to upper 80s with a chance of isolated thunderstorms.

Thursday, a better chance of showers and t-storms with the hot and humid 80s.

Friday, we dry out, and that pattern looks to stick through race day.  Highs look to drop to the low 80s.  We’ll keep you posted as we get closer to the big event.

Another Hot One Ahead

Posted By · May 24, 2010 at 4:57 am

Highs today will hit the upper 80s with mostly sunny skies.  There’s a chance for a pop up thunderstorm as we head into the afternoon.  Heat indices will be in the low to mid 90s, so if you have to be outside, prepare for hot and humid conditions.

Overnight, skies clear and lows drop to around 70 degrees.

Tuesday, a little cooler with highs in the mid 80s.  The stickiness will last and so will the slight chance for an isolated thunderstorm.  Expect a repeat of that forecast through Thursday.

Friday, we drop to the low 80s, and start to dry out for the weekend.  We’ll keep you posted on Indy 500 weather.  For now, it looks dry and around 80!

Posted By · May 23, 2010 at 5:37 am

Here comes the heat and humidity!  Today will be the warmest day of the year (so far) with highs climbing into the mid to upper 80s.  The day will be mostly sunny.  An isolated pop up thunderstorm is possible, but most spots look to remain dry.  It’s the typical pattern of daytime heating t-storms. 

If you’re heading to the track for Bump Day, stay hydrated and slather on the sunscreen!

Overnight, lows only drop to the mid to upper 60s with mostly clear skies.

Monday, highs flirt with 90, we’ll hit the upper 80s.  There’s a 30% chance of an isolated thunderstorm during the afternoon.  We’ll see the same chance of rain Tuesday with highs in the mid 80s.

Through Friday, highs remain in the mid 80s with a 20% chance of an isolated afternoon t-storm.

Enjoy the heat and humidity!
