Mainly Dry Monday

Posted By · July 19, 2010 at 7:33 am

Highs today will hit the upper 80s with partly cloudy skies in Central Indiana.  Mainly dry conditions will stick around today.

Overnight, scattered showers and thunderstorms develop.  Some storms could contain very heavy rain and damaging wind.

Tuesday, the entire state is under a slight risk for severe weather for the potential of flash flooding and damaging wind. 

We won’t see a washout, but rather different waves of thunderstorms developing.  And, that’s the forecast for the rest of the week too with temps around 90.  Not much is changing for our weather pattern.

Severe Storms Possible Sunday

Posted By · July 18, 2010 at 6:39 am

Highs today will hit the low 90s across Central Indiana, but it will feel closer to 100 thanks to the humidity.  Our Western and Southern counties are under a Heat Advisory, so please use care if you have outside activities planned. 

As we head into the afternoon and evening we’ll see our chance for showers and thunderstorms increase.  Some storms are expected to be strong to severe.  The entire state is under a slight risk for severe storms.  Heavy rain, damaging wind, and frequent lightning will be the main threats.  Flash flooding will continue to be a concern.

Overnight, a few scattered showers and t-storms will stick around as temps drop to the low 70s. 

Monday, the state is again under a slight risk for severe storms as highs top out near 90.

The heat, humidity, and chance for storms continues this week as a front stalls out across the state.

Weekend Storm Chances Increase

Posted By · July 17, 2010 at 7:12 am

Highs today will reach about 90 degrees with partly cloudy skies.  An isolated t-storm is possible, but most spots stay dry.  Activity looks to be more likely south of I-70.

Overnight, any storms that pop up will fade away with daytime heating.  Lows drop to the low to mid 70s.

Sunday, we crank up the heat again to the low 90s with partly cloudy skies.  The chance for storms increases the later we get into the afternoon/evening.  Some storms may be strong to severe.  We’re mainly watching for heavy rain and damaging wind. 

Monday, the chance for rain and t-storms sticks.  And, the heat doesn’t leave us this week either!

Storms Return for the Weekend

Posted By · July 16, 2010 at 7:54 am

Highs today will reach the upper 80s in Central Indiana with partly cloudy skies.  It will feel less humid as a cold front that triggered last night’s showers and storms passes.  There’s a slight chance for an isolated t-storm south of I-70.

Overnight, we cool off to the upper 60s with partly cloudy skies.

Saturday, the humidity starts to return as highs hit the upper 80s.  There’s a slight chance for an isolated t-storm, but most spots should stay dry.

Sunday, highs hit the low 90s and isolated t-storms could pop in the afternoon.  At this time we are already watching to see if some storms could be strong to severe.  We’ll keep an eye on it as we head closer to the close of the weekend.

Highs hit the upper 80s Monday with scattered showers and t-storms.

Heat Advisory & Strong Storms

Posted By · July 15, 2010 at 7:36 am

Highs today will reach the low to mid 90s in Central Indiana.  The entire viewing area is under a heat advisory.  That means with the humidity the temperature will feel closer to 100 degrees, if not a little warmer.  It’s important to stay hydrated with water and stay cool as much as you can.

This afternoon/evening scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible.  Some could be strong to severe.  Heavy rain, strong winds and hail will be the primary threats.

Friday, rain and t-storms could stick around eventually tapering off for the evening with a high in the upper 80s.

Saturday looks dry with highs around 90 degrees.  Sunday, another high around 90 with a chance of a few isolated t-storms.  More rain and storms return Monday.

This Little Piggy…

Posted By · July 14, 2010 at 6:31 am

I have a big fear… that I’m starting to overcome.

It’s not spiders, snakes, heights, or anything that’s “usual.”  I’m afraid of people touching my feet.  I know, it’s weird!  Since I’ve been a little girl I have been extremely ticklish.  So much so, that if one of my feet brushes up against the other, it’s uncontrollable laughter!

I am now conquering my fear.  I’ve never been able to get a pedicure because of my “problem.”  But, I’ve started making myself go.  Partially because my feet hurt from running and the 4 inch heels I love wearing.  It’s all finally caught up with me. 

May I please hear a round of applause for Michelle, my nail tech that’s taken upon the journey.  She says the more I do it, the less ticklish I’ll become.  She’s been absolutely right so far, but if you’re in a salon, and you hear crazy laughter amid the quiet atmosphere, chances are it’s me trying to get over my persnickety piggies!

I don’t have as much anxiety as I once did about feet, but that doesn’t mean I have to love all feet in general.  Give me time!

Steamy Wednesday

Posted By · July 14, 2010 at 4:44 am

Highs today will reach the low 90s across Central Indiana, but it will feel more like the mid 90s thanks to ample humidity around the state.  Partly cloudy skies are expected today.

Overnight, we only cool off to the low 70s.

Thursday, the heat gets turned up again.  Highs will hit the low to mid 90s.  And, we’ll see the return of showers and thunderstorms.   Some storms could be strong to severe with damaging wind and large hail.  Storms are likely to develop during the afternoon/evening.

Friday, we cool off to the upper 80s, but keep the chance of scattered t-storms in the forecast.

For now, the weekend looks mainly dry, with highs in the upper 80s.  We could see a few isolated showers/t-storms on Sunday.  We’ll keep you updated as we get closer to the weekend.

Candwich… What?!?!

Posted By · July 13, 2010 at 5:24 am

There is no way this can be real!

A Candwich?

Yep, choose between PBJ Grape, PBJ Strawberry, and BBQ Chicken.  All in a convenient 3 ounce can!

The maker of the Candwich uses these selling points:

  • “Candwich is the perfect product for people on the go such as students, construction workers, soccer moms and outdoor enthusiasts.”
  • “Unique packaging offers protection while backpacking, camping, biking, and other activities.”
  • “Easy store display – does not require refrigeration.”
  • “Candwich has a long shelf life that is perfect for emergency food storage needs in the event of natural disasters.”
  • “Three great tasting products are available as single can, four-pack or case displays.”
  • Yikes! 

    There’s also a lawsuit surrounding what’s soon to become the latest craze.  Okay… maybe not!
