Fourth Day of Severe Weather Possible

Posted By · June 15, 2010 at 5:31 am

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

Posted By · June 14, 2010 at 7:30 am

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!

Posted By · June 13, 2010 at 8:32 am

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.

Hot & Humid Weekend… Scattered Storms Too!

Posted By · June 12, 2010 at 6:35 am

Nearly the entire state is under a slight risk for severe weather across Central Indiana today.  Damaging wind, and hail are our primary concerns with any severe storm that develops.  Heavy rain and localized flooding will also be possible.

Highs will hit the upper 80s, but be prepared for pop up showers and storms, especially this afternoon into the evening.

Overnight, we’ll still see a chance for scattered showers and storms as lows stay warm and muggy in the low 70s.

Sunday, more scattered showers and t-storms with highs once again reaching the upper 80s.  It appears that a few severe storms could be possible tomorrow, check back with the blog for more info.

More rain is likely Monday and Tuesday… then we finally dry out Wednesday with highs still in the mid 80s.

Moderate Risk of Severe Storms Saturday

Posted By · June 5, 2010 at 7:05 am

A rocky Saturday is ahead for Central Indiana.  A moderate risk of severe weather is in place along and north of I-70, with the rest of the state under a slight risk for severe weather.  Click here to see a map.  Strong to severe storms could develop this afternoon and tonight.  We’ll be watching for damaging wind and hail as the main threats, but I wouldn’t rule out an isolated tornado.  Highs will hit the low 80s.

Strong to severe storms continue tonight with lows in the upper 60s.

Sunday morning the showers and storms will come to an end, and cooler, drier air will move in.  Highs are expected to hit the upper 70s Sunday.

Monday, we remain dry and in the mid 70s.

Tuesday and Wednesday another chance for scattered showers and t-storms returns.

Steamy & Muggy Friday, Stormy Saturday

Posted By · June 4, 2010 at 7:43 am

Get ready for a hot and muggy day with high temps hitting the upper 80s across Central Indiana.  Isolated storms are possible this afternoon and evening with some storms turning severe.  Damaging wind, heavy rain, and large hail are our primary concerns.

Overnight more thunderstorms are possible, sticking around Saturday morning, and redeveloping again Saturday afternoon with highs in the mid 80s.  Again, the entire state is under a slight chance for severe weather Saturday.  Damaging wind, large hail, and heavy downpours are our primary concerns, but we cannot rule out the chance for an isolated tornado.  I don’t think we’re going to see a washout, but be prepared to move outdoor plans indoors as storms pop up and pass.

Sunday morning we’ll see an end to the rain, and drier air will move in.  Highs are expected to reach the mid to upper 70s with partly cloudy skies for the afternoon.

Monday is dry with highs around 80.  But, late Monday afternoon into Tuesday, another chance at showers and storms moves in.
