Bitter Cold… then Warm Up in Sight

Posted By · February 9, 2011 at 7:05 am

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!

Teachers plan rally over education reform

Posted By · February 8, 2011 at 9:25 am

Tuesday is the day we get a real understanding of the line drawn between Republicans who are pushing for education reform and the teachers’ union. The late afternoon rally promises to be like that of right to work rallies at the Statehouse. Turnout could be huge. We’ll have a preview story at Noon on Eyewitness News and coverage at 5:00 and 6:00 pm.

Brr! Is this the North Pole?

Posted By · February 8, 2011 at 7:57 am

I know it’s February, but it looks more like Christmas Eve outside my window!  Snow… cold… seems like Santa fits in there perfectly!  Well, if you make it through this cold… a nice warm up is coming for the weekend!

Highs today will reach the teens around Central Indiana with partly cloudy skies.  With the wind chill, it will feel like -5 to 10, so make sure to bundle up!

Overnight, temps drop to the around 0 with wind chills at -10 to 0 and partly cloudy skies.

Wednesday highs only reach the teens again!

Make it through the work week, and highs for the weekend look to soar above the freezing mark!  Check out the 7 day forecast below.  I’m already thinking of fun “warm” songs that we can play on Weekend Sunrise.

Falling Temperatures… Light Snow

Posted By · February 7, 2011 at 7:53 am

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!

Posted By · February 6, 2011 at 6:47 am

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

Posted By · February 5, 2011 at 6:51 am

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.

Snow for the Weekend

Posted By · February 4, 2011 at 6:38 am

Just the news you wanted to hear… more snow is on the way.  Let’s look at the bright side though… at least I’m not forecasting more ice!

Highs today will reach the upper 20s to around 30 degrees with partly cloudy skies.

Late tonight, snow showers are possible with a dusting, up to an inch falling through Saturday morning.  Saturday, highs hit the low 30s.

Another shot of snow moves in Sunday, we could pick up 1-2″ of snow from this system Sunday night through Monday.  With another 1-2″ of snow possible Monday- Tuesday.

As of right now, snow accumulations look light around Central Indiana with 3-5″ possible by early Tuesday (that’s total for all of the little snow makers). 

Join us starting at 6am Saturday morning on Sunrise, I’ll nail down the timeline better for you as each of these little snow systems get closer to the state.

Arctic Air Arrives

Posted By · February 3, 2011 at 7:01 am

Is it too early to ask Santa for weather that’s 70 degrees and sunny?  I just want it warm enough to melt all of the ice! 

Highs today will only reach 18 degrees with sunny skies.  The wind chill will make it feel like -10 to 0, so please bundle up and be careful when you head out. 

Tonight, temps drop to around 0, again, wind chill will be in the subzero range.

Friday, we’re warming up, but not enough!  Highs will hit the upper 20s with mostly sunny skies.

A chance for snow moves in Saturday, right now we’re looking at 1-2 inches of snow accumulation.

Sunday, a rain snow mix is possible with highs in the mid 30s.

A bigger system is building for Monday and Tuesday.  It’s too early to say how much snow we’ll get right now, but stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted!
