Relief in Sight!

Posted By · August 15, 2010 at 6:26 am

One more day of 90 degree heat to get through, then we get to cool off!  Highs today will hit the low 90s with partly cloudy skies.  As a cold front moves through the state a few thunderstorms are possible today.  Some storms may contain heavy rain and frequent lightning.  Behind that front moving through, we’ll see much cooler temps and lower humidity!

Overnight, temps drop to the mid 60s with mostly clear skies.

Here comes the relief!  Nearly all this week temps stay in the 80s!  Enjoy… even though we’ve got some storms in there, plus a little warm up!

Warm, Stormy Weekend

Posted By · August 14, 2010 at 9:32 am

Highs today will hit the mid 90s with a mix of sun and clouds and scattered t-storms.  The day won’t be a washout, but check the radar often, especially this afternoon.  Any storm that pops up may contain frequent lightning and very heavy rainfall.  Some storms may be strong to severe.  Heat warnings are once again in effect for the state.

Today’s record is 95 degrees set back in 1871.

Overnight, temps drop to the low to mid 70s with scattered t-storms.

Sunday, highs hit the low 90s with scattered t-storms.  At this time, the storminess looks more likely though the early afternoon.  We’re waiting a on a cold front to move through.  And, storms will fire ahead of that.

The best news of the forecast?  We lose the heat!  Check out what’s coming next week!

Daniels: To run or not to run?

Posted By · August 13, 2010 at 12:47 pm

Gov. Daniels appeared to be enjoying the spotlight Friday.

Governor Mitch Daniels has carved out a unique position in presidential politics: that of the reluctant candidate. On Thursday, Senator Richard Lugar said he will urge Daniels to run for president. Lugar went on to say he believes President Obama will not win re-election in 2012.Governor Daniels admitted he got to talk to the senator on the phone for over an hour on Thursday. He did not elaborate on what the senator said to him or what he said to the senator in relation to the presidential race. This is a big deal, not because of Senator Lugar’s standing in Washington, which is formidable, but because of his close relationship with the governor. What Senator Lugar says means something to Daniels.

Watching the governor on Friday you could see that he is clearly enjoying his time in the limelight. Fox Network News sent a camera crew to follow him around as he flirts with the possibility. In the meantime he works to try to get a Republican majority in the House of Representatives. If he succeeds in that then he will be working with GOP majorities in both the House and the Senate which means he will be able to push through his agenda. That will also allow him to venture out.

Announce too early and his chance of getting his agenda through could diminish. Wait until after the off-year election and he very well could have his cake and eat it too.

In the meantime he is riding the wave of what could be.

Highs today will reach the mid 90s but again it will feel like 100-110 because of the heat index.  There’s a chance for a pop up afternoon t-storm, but it appears that most spots stay dry.  Click here to see the heat related warnings that are in effect.  The entire state is under something.

Overnight, lows drop to the low to mid 70s with partly cloudy skies.  Look up after midnight, you’ll have a chance to catch a meteor shower!

Friday, we’ll still see temps in the mid 90s and Friday night we’ll throw in a slight chance for a t-storm.

For the weekend, the rain chances increase and the temp decreases, a bit.  Saturday we will see a better chance of rain than Sunday.  For now the rain looks to end early Sunday.  We’ll keep you updated on that!

The hot weather during 2007 continued into September and early October.  September 2007 was the 7th warmest September of record.  The latest 90 weather of record at Indianapolis occurred on October 7 and 8 in 2007.
