A Perfect Forecast

It’s not too often that I get to call the forecast perfect!

Get ready for another beautiful day!  Highs today will reach the upper 70s with low humidity across Central Indiana.  Even though it’s cool, don’t forget the sunscreen.  Plenty of sunshine is expected today.

Lows will drop to the mid 50s tonight.  Nice and cool, plus it will give a/c units a break!

Thursday, sunny with temps in the upper 70s.

Friday, we warm up to the low 80s.

For the holiday weekend highs hit the upper 80s, close to 90 degrees.  Picture perfect if you ask me!

Go get it!

I am always looking for new sources of both information and motivation with regard to my exercise. Believe it or not, watching high level tennis matches always offers up something I can use to help take me to another level.

I was watching a Wimbledon match yesterday and noticed that these players deal with more hardship than success during their matches.

Aside from the physical demands, Tennis is a mental game and success depends on how well you can fight through hardship, how well you can constantly focus and re-focus yourself depending on what is going on at any given moment.

What is so symbolic is the fact that these players are all alone out there on the court and there is nothing or nobody there to help them but themselves. When the players dig themselves into ruts, you can see them
cursing to themselves, tossing racquets and yes, even hitting themselves! There are no shortcuts, no easy escape routes and no excuses when it comes to determining their fate.

These facts are the mirror image of you and your fitness endeavors.

While you can seek the help and company of others, you are essentially alone out there and it is up to you to take responsibility for both the plan and action with regard to your health & fitness.

Dont assume that hardship, off-days and even feeling bad are not part of the process because they most certainly are. When you look at any successful athlete or any successful person, what separates them from those who are less successful is the fact that they embrace, fight through and rise above difficult times. If you always expect instant success or feeling great, you will be unprepared for any type of hardship and then prematurely toss in the towel and quit.

Quitting happens far too often with people and their fitness endeavors. If you stay focused on your goals and view setbacks, failures and bad days as much a part of the process as all the good things, you will be  far more able to stay on track toward the levels of health & fitness that you have always imagined.

Success is waiting for you…embrace the entire process of getting there and go get it!

Morning Rain, Afternoon Clearing

Finally, a change in the forecast I think everyone will be happy about!

Morning showers and thunderstorms are likely across Central Indiana.  Severe weather is not likely, but a few strong wind gusts and downpours are possible. 

By late morning, the rain exits, and afternoon clearing is expected.  Winds will gust out of the West up to 25mph as temperatures hit the mid 80s.

Overnight, another cold front pushes through the state.  This front doesn’t bring rain, but behind it, much cooler air!  Lows Tuesday morning will drop to the upper 50s and low 60s.  We’ll see partly cloudy skies Tuesday with highs in the upper 70s.

The rest of the week looks dry, and check out the temps in the extended forecast!

Strong to Severe Storms Possible Sunday

The heat and humidity continue across Central Indiana today, but as early as Tuesday, relief is on the way!

Highs today will hit the upper 80s with developing showers and storms.  Some storms could be strong to severe this afternoon into tonight.  The biggest threats will be damaging wind, and hail.  However, we can’t rule out the possibility of an isolated tornado.  Heavy rain will be likely from thunderstorms, so a Flash Flood Watch is in effect though Monday morning for all of the viewing area.  Up to 2″ of rain will be possible from these storms by Monday morning.  Some isolated areas may see more.

Overnight as a cold front pushes through the state storms are likely, again containing heavy rain and the possibility of strong to severe storms. 

Monday morning the storms exit, and we bring in clearing for the afternoon with highs in the mid 80s.

Tuesday starts our cool down with highs around 80.  That looks to stick around through Friday with plenty of sunshine.  Enjoy!

Saturday won’t be a washout, but heat, humidity, and storms return to Central Indiana.

Get ready for it to feel like summer again in Central Indiana!

Highs today will hit the low 90s with a chance for isolated t-storms, especially for the afternoon.  Some storms north of I-70 may be strong.  Nonetheless, even if you don’t get hit by an isolated storm… the heat and humidity are back.  A heat advisory is in effect for some counties south of I-70.

Overnight, a shower or storm may linger as lows drop to the low to mid 70s.

Sunday, more of Central Indiana is under a slight risk for severe weather.  Strong to severe storms could develop for the afternoon and evening.  Some t-storms could contain heavy rain, damaging wind, and large hail.  The activity will continue into the night.

A few storms could linger for Monday morning, but then we cool off and dry out.  Starting Tuesday, highs drop to the low 80s!

Near Record Heat Wednesday

Get ready for the hottest day of the year so far today!

Hot, humid, stormy.  Our weather forecast is just more of the same!

Highs today will hit the mid 90s.  Specifically, I’m forecasting a high of 94.  The record for today is 96 degrees.  It will feel much warmer thanks to the humidity.  A few pop up storms are possible this afternoon, but it’s later tonight that more severe weather could move in.  Click here to see the latest severe weather risk areas.  Isolated tornadoes are possible, but damaging winds are more likely from storms that push through tonight as a cold front slams through the state.

The good news about the front moving through?  We “cool” off a bit Thursday.  Highs will hit the mid to upper 80s with less humidity!  A few lingering showers or storms are possible in the morning, but then we dry out.

Sunshine and less humidity sticks around through Saturday with highs in the upper 80s to around 90.

More storms could be on the way for Sunday.
