Summer Begins!

Today is the first “official” day of summer, but it’s felt like it all month!

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!

Happy Father’s Day! If you’re planning your day outside, you may need to dodge some afternoon t-storms.

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

Summer doesn’t “officially” start until Monday, but Central Indiana has gotten a taste of what’s to come!

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

So much for our break from hot and steamy weather, it all comes back starting today.

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

I don’t think I’m alone when I say I am loving this sunny, less humid weather!

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!

Finally Drying Out… For Now!

Finally, Central Indiana is drying out!

After four days of severe weather, we’re ready for some sunshine across the state.  We’ll get just that today in Central Indiana.

Highs today will hit the mid 80s with partly cloudy skies for the afternoon.  It will feel less humid today than what we’ve been dealing with!

Thursday, we stay dry, but warm up again into the upper 80s.

Late Friday, spotty thunderstorms are possible as highs hit the low 90s.

Saturday and Sunday stays warm in the low 90s with a 30% chance of storms.

June Rain Totals

We’re only half way through the month, and we’re already racking up very impressive rainfall totals!

We’re only half way through the month, and Indianapolis is already about 2 inches above our average rain totals.  However, that’s nothing compared to Shelbyville!

Here’s a look at how much rain cities have gotten for the month of June:

Indianapolis:  4.36″

Muncie:  4.45″

Bloomington:  4.77″

Lafayette:  5.07″

Shelbyville: 9.35″

Fourth Day of Severe Weather Possible

Another chance for severe weather moves into Central Indiana this afternoon.

Get ready for another rocky day of weather in Central Indiana.

Highs today will hit the mid to upper 80s with showers and t-storms developing this afternoon.  Some storms are expected to be strong to severe.  The entire state is under a slight risk for severe weather.  Damaging winds and heavy rain are the biggest threats.  However, hail and an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Overnight the storms should die down, but a few showers may linger for your Wednesday morning.  Other than that, Wednesday looks mainly dry!  Highs will hit the mid 80s.

For now, Thursday looks dry, but we could get a few scattered t-storms Friday and Saturday.  We’ll keep you posted!

Severe Storms Possible Monday & Tuesday

This forecast sounds like a broken record, but unfortunately more of the same is coming up this week.

Highs today will hit the mid to upper 80s with more scattered showers and thunderstorms likely, especially this afternoon and tonight.  Some storms may be strong to severe.  The entire viewing area is under a slight risk for severe weather.  Damaging wind, hail, and even an isolated tornado is possible.  Very heavy rain is also likely.  In thunderstorms a quick on to two inches of rain could fall.

Tonight will be warm and sticky with lows in the low 70s with scattered showers and t-storms.

The reason for all the showers and storms is a stalled out front that just won’t get out of here.  It’s allowing hot and humid air from the south to invade Central Indiana.

Tuesday, a repeat of Monday, including the chance for severe weather.

Wednesday we finally start to dry out, as the stationary front gets “outta here”!   We might see a few showers and storms early in the morning, but the rest of the day looks good with highs in the mid 80s.

Thursday the chance for storms returns, and sticks with us through the weekend as highs reach nearly 90 degrees.

Hot, Humid, Stormy… Nothing New!

If it’s going to feel this hot and humid with a tropical airmass, it’d at least be nice to sit by the ocean!

Let’s just hit repeat for today’s forecast!

Highs will hit the upper 80s with lots of humidity so it will feel closer to the mid nineties.

Plenty of dry time will be found outside today, but as we head into the afternoon a few isolated t-storms could pop.  At this point we are not looking for widespread severe storms, but we’ll keep our eyes on it.

Overnight, a few scattered showers and t-storms may stick around as temps drop into the low 70s.  It will still be muggy, so I don’t think it will “feel” very good outside.

Monday, we hit the mid 80s, and as a front moves through the state a chance for severe weather pops back up.  Nearly the entire viewing area is under a slight risk for severe storms, I’ll keep you posted.

The rain sticks around through Wednesday morning… then we finally start to clear out and dry out.  Temps will still hit the mid 80s, but it shouldn’t feel as sticky.

Looking at the long range forecast, more storms could return next weekend.
