The Warm Up is Here!

The warm up is here… the warm up is here! I can’t yell this forecast loud enough!

Highs today will reach the upper 30s with partly cloudy skies across Central Indiana.  If you have one complaint today, it’ll be the wind.  A breezy day is ahead with winds out of the Southwest up to 15 mph.

Overnight, a few more clouds will move in, and there’s a slight chance for isolated flurries.  Temps will only drop to the upper 20s, but winds will gust up to 20 mph.

Sunday, the wind sticks with gusts up to 25mph.  Be happy the wind is out of the Southwest… that’s what’s bringing us the warmer temps!  Highs Sunday will reach the mid 40s.

Look in the 7 day… we approach 60 degrees near the end of the week!

Daniels in the spotlight at CPAC

Gov. Mitch Daniels will step into the spotlight Friday night.

Gov. Mitch Daniels will step into the spotlight Friday night. The governor is planning a speech before a conservative group in Washington, DC. The governor will be introduced by conservative columnist George Will.

The only thing we know for sure about Friday’s speech is that he will not be announcing his candidacy.

I think we will hear him defend his controversial stand of asking Republicans to call a truce on social issues until the economic issues confronting the country are resolved. He has taken some heat on this from the right in the GOP. Now he gets the opportunity to defend himself against that criticism and outline the agenda as he sees it for the country.

At CPAC Thursday, 11,000 people turned out to hear Donald Trump, among others. While the governor may not have that star power, his attraction here is on-the-job experience.  He’s been successful in the business world, has balanced budgets in government, has worked for two presidents including Ronald Reagan, which carries a lot of weight, and timing is everything. 

If I know Gov. Daniels, he will not miss an opportunity to talk a little bit about events in Egypt and America’s role in this and the world. I will be watching it and have the details tonight at 11:00 pm.

Here Comes the Sun & the Warmth!

It’s been way too long since I’ve been this excited to talk about a warm up in the forecast!

Today will be the coolest day out of the next 7!  That’s a good way to start off your weekend… right?

Highs today will reach the upper 20s with a mix of sun and clouds.

Early Saturday, a few flurries may be possible, but we’ll warm up into the mid 30s, and that is just the start of the big melt of 2010!

By Sunday, highs will reach the mid 40s, and we could be talking the 50s by next week.  I know… this is exciting!  There may be a few chances for rain Tuesday-Thursday, but at this time it’s too early to tell.

Enjoy the warmth!

Bitter Cold… then Warm Up in Sight

Bitter cold air sticks around Central Indiana today, then a nice warm up arrives just in time for the weekend.

Highs today will only reach the teens with temps feeling like -5 to 5.  We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds today.  South of I-70, light snow may creep in from a big storm that’s setting up from Oklahoma to Georgia.

Overnight, as skies clear, temps drop to -2 in the metro.  That’s without the windchill, so it’s going to be a very chilly night to say the least.

Thursday, the sun sticks around, but cold temps do too.  Highs only reach the mid teens again.

Want the good news?  Look below at the 7 day forecast… the 40s by Sunday?!?!   Yep!

Falling Temperatures… Light Snow

Get ready for very cold air to move into Central Indiana!

Today’s weather blog will be short but sweet, because almost all of the info you need will be found in the 7 day below.

Highs today will reach about 30 degrees, and stay there most of the day with temps slowly falling into the 20s for the afternoon.  It’s going to be cloudy and grey, with a chance for snow.  Accumulating snow of up to an inch is possible South of I-70, especially in our extreme Southern counties.

Tonight, temps drop around 10 degrees, with the chance for snow showers.  Because it will be so cold, a few slick spots are possible!

Tuesday, our arctic blast starts with highs only in the teens.  The good news?  For now, the forecast appears mainly dry for the entire week!

Check out how low temps go in the 7 day forecast!  And, I can’t leave out the warm up coming for the weekend!

More Snow… then Arctic Blast!

Light snow is possible around Central Indiana today, then an arctic blast hits the state!

Light snow showers are possible today with snow accumulation of up to 1″.  Eventually, temps will warm into the mid 30s, that will change the snow showers to a rain/snow mix south of I-70.

Overnight, light snow is possible with temps around 30 degrees.

Monday, light snow showers are in the forecast with highs around 30, so not much change from Sunday night!  An additional inch of snow is possible.

Tuesday, you’ll notice a huge difference… highs will only reach the teens!

We’re watching for a chance of snow Wednesday and Thursday, but right now there’s not a lot of model agreement on it, so I’ve included a chance in the 7 day forecast for now!

More Snow this Weekend

More snow will fall in Central Indiana this weekend, the breakdown of what to expect is in today’s weather blog!

Yes, the forecast is true, more snow is falling in Central Indiana.  Today highs will hit the low 30s with snow showers through the early evening.  At times, moderate to heavy snow is likely.   This will reduce visibility and cause slick spots to form quickly on area roadways.  We’re looking at snow accumulations of 2-4″ of snow for Central Indiana today  Some isolated areas could pick up 5″ of snow.  The snow looks to exit by early evening leaving mostly cloudy skies and overnight lows in the mid 20s.

Sunday looks mainly dry with highs in the mid 30s.  Another round of snow showers moves in late Sunday afternoon/ Sunday night into Monday.  Another 1-2″ of snow will be possible during this time frame!

Tuesday looks dry, but cold with highs in the teens.  With another chance of accumulating snow moving in late Tuesday into Wednesday.
