Wintry Mix to Rain & the 50s Today!

Sleet? What?! Don’t worry, as temps go up today… we’ll see everything transition to rain.

Morning sleet/ wintry mixes across Central Indiana will transition to all rain after sunrise as temps start to rise.  Highs today will reach the low to mid 50s with scattered showers.  The day won’t be a washout, and we may see a few breaks of sun this afternoon.  Still, keep the rain gear handy as an isolated shower will be possible any time this afternoon.

Tonight, temps stay steady around 50 degrees with scattered showers.

Monday, we hit our high temp in the low to mid 50s in the morning, with falling temps for the afternoon.  Scattered showers are likely throughout the day, turning to a wintry mix and snow Monday night.  By Tuesday morning up to 1″ of snow may be possible, but we’re not tracking much at this point!

Check out the 7 day for the rest of the roller coaster temps!

Weekend Warmth Continues

Temperatures remain above average for Central Indiana this weekend, but we won’t stay dry!

Clouds will be on the increase today with highs in the mid 40s.

Tonight, mostly cloudy skies settle in, and after midnight, a chance for rain moves into the forecast!  Rain will be likely into your Sunday morning.  Temperatures will hover close to freezing, at 32 degrees, so some areas, especially North and East of the Indy Metro could see a brief wintry mix.

Sunday, we’ll stick with scattered rain showers through noon, turning isolated for the afternoon with highs soaring into the mid 50s.

Monday, more rain, and falling temps.  We’ll start the day with highs around 50, but as colder air moves in… rain will turn to snow Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning.  Very light accumulations of up to an inch are possible.

For the rest of the temperature roller coaster, check out the 7 day below!

Cooler… but Warmer than Average!

Our average high this time of year is around 40 degrees, today we’ll continue our streak of being warmer than that!

The warmth continues around Central Indiana… no complaints from me!

Temperatures today will be doing a little bit of a roller coaster as a front moves through bringing cooler air.  We’ll start off the day near 60 degrees, and see temps fall but remain nearly steady in the 50s as we head into the afternoon.  Winds will gust up to 25mph out of the Northwest during the day.

Saturday looks cooler, but dry as highs hit the mid to upper 40s.

Sunday, we’ll be tracking light rain with highs again popping into the 50s.

Monday, a rain/snow wintry mix is expected as cooler air moves in.  At this time, we’re not tracking accumulating snow… we’ll keep you posted if that changes!

I hope you enjoy the weekend and get out to soak in the warmth!

It seems like most Hoosiers are a little happier these days… could it be the forecast?

Friday, temps warm into the upper 50s with a chance for morning sprinkles.  Clouds will eventually break as we head into the afternoon for a mix of sun and clouds.  Again, winds will be brisk out of the West up to 25 mph.

Thursday, highs reach the 60 degree mark with a 30% chance for scattered showers.

Friday morning, we’ll be watching for scattered morning showers, then the clouds break for the afternoon with highs in the upper 50s.

Bennett addresses wife’s connection to charter schools organization

Some WTHR viewers have pointed out a connection between the wife of Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Bennett and the Indiana Public Charter Schools Association.

Some WTHR viewers have pointed out a connection between the wife of Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Dr. Tony Bennett and the Indiana Public Charter Schools Association.

When asked if she were employed by the organization, Bennett responded, “No, she’s not. My wife served as a consultant for the Indiana Public Charter Schools Association. She separated herself from her contract as a consultant a week ago last Thursday.”

Bennett went on to say, “I wonder how many of our organizations who feel that that’s a valid attack would also attack the members of our General Assembly – who, by the way, vote on legislation and I don’t – who are employed by our state’s higher ed institutions, who receive money from the General Assembly, or who are public school teachers whose corporations receive money, have they accused them of engaging in some type of conflict of interest?”

Watch our complete interview here (this question is addressed in the final minute of the interview.)

Gov. Daniels makes pitch to C-PAC

Can a Republican win the nomination for president by campaigning down the middle?

Gov. Mitch Daniels at C-PAC

Gov. Mitch Daniels’ speech before C-PAC Friday night is raising eyebrows and questions.

Can a Republican win the nomination for president by campaigning down the middle? Normally Republicans lean to the right in the primary fight and Democrats to the left. That leaves the middle as the battle ground in the general election.

However, the Indiana governor didn’t use his opportunity before C-PAC to pander. There was some controversy over the group even giving Daniels the mike at all. Some said they would boycott because of his recommended truce on social issues.

Daniels did not back away, telling his conservative audience that “purity in martyrdom is for suicide bombers.” Then he added, “I for one have no interest in standing in the wreckage of our Republic saying I told you so or you should’ve done it my way.” Instead he preached about the need to broaden the party’s base. Earlier in the week in the Indiana Statehouse he had praised President Ronald Reagan for doing that very thing. Now he is asking his party to remember where it came from.

Could it be that the governor realizes the religious right in his party has already lined up behind Sarah Palin or does he believe his party can’t defeat an incumbent with that narrow of a focus? Palin is preaching exclusion – us against them; a campaign of division.

Daniels, remembering Reagan, is calling for a party of addition. He quoted John Adams’ diary entry while en route to Philadelphia when he wrote “great things are wanted to be done.” That may turn into his rallying cry but watching all this unfold I can’t help but think of another entry Adams made when writing to his wife Abigail back in Massachusetts. He penned “but it is my destiny to dig treasures with my own fingers.”

Now it will be interesting to see who is willing to get their hands dirty along with him. 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! We’re heating things up for you, especially for the end of the week!

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Highs today will stay steady around 40 degrees with partly cloudy skies.  It’s going to feel cool because of a Northwest breeze, gusting at times up to 30mph.

Overnight, it will be cold.  Lows will drop to the low 20s, but the wind dies down.

Tuesday, our warm up begins!  Highs will hit the low 40s with partly cloudy skies.

Wednesday, we could hit 50!  A slight chance of rain moves in too.  Check out the 7 day… not only do the temps go up, but a chance for rain will be with us through the weekend.

Fall in Love with the Forecast

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, but I think you’re going to fall in love with this forecast!

Here comes the warm up!

Highs today will reach the mid to upper 40s with mostly sunny skies.  A few clouds will build for the afternoon as winds stay steady out of the Southwest from 15 to 30mph. 

Overnight, the wind will stick around as temps drop to around freezing with mostly clear skies.  The bus stop won’t be as cold as it was last week for the little ones!

For Valentine’s Day, highs reach about 40 with partly cloudy skies.

Starting Tuesday a nice warm up begins (check out the 7 day below), and there’s a slight chance of rain starting Wednesday.  Still, what’s a little rain if temps hit close to 60 by the end of the week?
