Near Record Heat Wednesday

Posted By · June 23, 2010 at 9:21 am

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.

Summer Begins!

Posted By · June 21, 2010 at 5:14 am

Summer officially begins at 7:28am.  That said, it’s felt like summer all month in Central Indiana!

Today, the heat will continue.  Highs hit the low 90s with lots of humidity!  It will feel closer to 100 degrees across the viewing area because of the heat and humidity.

The weekend remained pretty dry with just spotty storms, but today, even more are expected to move in.  Nearly the entire state is under a slight risk for severe weather today through Wednesday.  We are watching for very heavy rain, damaging wind, hail, and the possibility of an isolated tornado.

The severe weather risk, and the heat will be the focus of our forecasts this week.

Highs will stay in the low 90s through Wednesday, dropping to the mid 80s by Thursday.

Happy Father’s Day!

Dads, I hope you enjoy your special day!

Highs will hit the upper 80s with increasing clouds and developing storms.  The chance for rain and t-storms will increase this afternoon into the evening.  Some storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind, heavy rain and large hail.

Overnight, an isolated storm isn’t out of the question, as lows drop to a muggy 69 degrees.

Monday and Tuesday, highs hit the low 90s, and each day, there’s a chance for some thunderstorms to be strong or severe. 

This forecast is just keeps repeating itself!

Muggy & Stormy Weekend Ahead

Posted By · June 19, 2010 at 7:23 am

Highs today will hit the low 90s across Central Indiana.  It could be our warmest day of the year (so far), and our 3rd time hitting the 90 degree mark!  With the humidity, it will feel more like triple digit heat, so please use caution when spending time outside!  A Heat Advisory is in effect this afternoon for a portion of the viewing area south of I-70.  An isolated pop up storm is possible.

Overnight, lows will drop to the upper 60s, any storms that pop up during the day will diminish as daytime heating subsides.

For Father’s Day, highs “only” hit the upper 80s, but there’s a slight chance for severe weather.  For the afternoon and evening we’ll be monitoring the forecast for severe storms containing damaging wind, heavy rain, and large hail.

A daily chance for pop up storms and very humid conditions sticks around through Wednesday with temps hitting close to 90 each day.

Heat, Humidity, & Storms Return

Posted By · June 18, 2010 at 7:38 am

Get ready for heat and humidity to make a major comeback to Central Indiana.

Highs today will reach about 90 degrees, but will feel much warmer with sticky conditions.  Isolated thunderstorms are possible, especially as we head into the afternoon and evening.

Saturday and Sunday highs hit the low 90s, but it will feel closer to 100 with the heat index (actual temp + humidity).  Isolated afternoon storms will be possible both days.  Some storms may be strong.  The weekend will not be a washout, but check the radar if you have outdoor plans, especially for the afternoon/evening.

Think ahead of staying cool.  Drink plenty of water, and don’t spend extended periods of time outside if you don’t have to.

The heat and humidity sticks around through next week, with temps around 90.  There’s a daily chance of storms too.

Comfortable Pattern Won’t Last Long

Posted By · June 17, 2010 at 7:08 am

Highs today will reach the mid 80s with minimal humidity.  Even though it might feel a bit sticky, much “heavier” air will enter the forecast this weekend!

Overnight, we stay dry as lows drop to the mid to upper 60s.

Friday, the humidity increases and highs hit the upper 80s to low 90s.  Late Friday a few scattered showers or t-storms are possible.

Saturday and Sunday, temps hit the low 90s, but with the humidity it will feel closer to 100!  There’s a 30% chance of pop-up t-storms in the afternoon.  The weekend won’t be a washout, but you’ll need to keep your eyes on the radar.

The chance of storms sticks around early next week, and so does the heat.  So much for a nice break!  It’s been a warm June, and the pattern is only continuing!
