Chilly Air Settles In, & Snow?

Posted By · March 24, 2011 at 5:51 am

That nice stretch of warm weather was just a tease!

Highs today will only hit the low 40s with a mix of sun and clouds.  Patch drizzle is possible early this morning mixed in with a few snow flakes, but we will eventually dry out.

Overnight, it’s time to turn on the heater again!  Lows drop into the 20s for your Friday morning.

Friday, looks like a mix of sun and clouds with temps in the low 40s again.

Saturday, well… we’ll have to watch this forecast closely!  It looks like the day will start off as rain, then possible transition to light accumulating snow in the evening.  We’ll keep you posted as everything starts to come together!

Sunday, the sunshine returns with highs around 40… but look at the cool pattern that sticks in the 7 day forecast!

Scattered Strong to Severe Storms… then Snow

Posted By · March 23, 2011 at 7:30 pm

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to fire up across Central Indiana tonight.  Strong winds with gusts up in excess of 60 mph, large hail, and very heavy rain is likely.  An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.  This is all being triggered by a front moving through Central Indiana.

Once it passes, much colder air will settle in, and a wintry mix is possible overnight into Thursday morning.  Bundle up before you head out the door to work or school, because temps will drop into the low 30s.

Thursday, highs only hit the low 40s.

More wet and chilly weather can be found in the 7 day forecast.

Click here to see the latest weather warnings.  A tornado watch is in effect for east central and southeast central Indiana.

Severe thunderstorms are likely this afternoon producing wind gusts in excess of 60mph, and small hail.  An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. 

Remember, when a tornado watch is in effect, and a severe thunderstorm warning is issued, so counties choose to sound the tornado sirens.

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are likely today across Central Indiana.  Highs will hit the low 60s.   Keep the rain gear handy, it won’t rain all day, but expect a shower or isolated storm at anytime through the afternoon.

Overnight, temps drop to the mid 50s, and more scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms move in.  The morning commute could be wet, with showers continuing to pop up throughout your Monday as highs hit the low 70s!

Tuesday and Wednesday, some storms could be strong, so we’re closely watching the development of this system.

By Thursday morning, temps drop below freezing, and that means we could see some flurries!
