Drizzle & Snow in Today’s Forecast

Posted By · March 10, 2011 at 5:04 am

Highs today will stay steady in the mid to upper 30s.  Cloudy skies will stick with us all day, along with a chance for wet snowflakes and drizzle.  Wind gusts up to 30 mph will make it a cold, breezy day.  No snow accumulation is expected because the ground temperature is above freezing.

Tonight, any remaining snow showers wind down, and the clouds break.  Because skies will clear, overnight lows drop to the mid to upper 20s.  Winds will continue to gust up to 25mph.

Friday, sunshine… finally!  Highs will reach the mid to upper 40s with partly cloudy skies.

Saturday, there’s a slight chance for rain with temps in the 50s.  Sunday, we’re dry and mild.  Rain returns to the forecast Monday and Wednesday.

Scattered Showers Stick Around

Posted By · March 9, 2011 at 5:23 am

Keep your umbrella handy, and get ready to hold onto it today!  Highs will reach the low to mid 50s with scattered showers.  Up to another half of an inch of rain is possible.  A rumble of thunder is possible too.  Wind gusts up to 25mph will be likely, so it’s going to be breezy.

Tonight, light rain sticks around and temps drop to the low to mid 30s.  Rain will turn to a wintry mix early Thursday morning, and a few snow showers are possible with little to no accumulation.

Thursday, expect a wintry mix with highs in the low 40s.

Friday, we’re dry and in the 50s… with more light rain possible for Saturday.

Rain & Storms Headed to Indiana

Posted By · March 8, 2011 at 4:54 am

Highs today will reach the low 50s with mostly cloudy skies and a mainly dry forecast.  A spotty sprinkle or shower is possible, but it’s tonight that we’re watching for heavy rain and thunderstorms to move into the state.

Tonight and Wednesday, showers and thunderstorms are likely.  Up to 1.5″ of rain is possible.  Flooding will continue along area rivers, and worst flooding from this next round of rain will occur south of I-70.

Wednesday night colder air moves in, and by Thursday a few snow showers are possible.  Highs will warm into the 40s by Thursday afternoon.

Friday, we hit the low 50s again as we see a little sunshine, but it doesn’t stick around for long… more rain is in the forecast for Saturday.

Donnelly considers Senate, governor runs

Posted By · March 7, 2011 at 1:37 pm

Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-IN02)

Rep. Joe Donnelly (D-IN02) visited Indianapolis Monday to talk about the future of manufacturing in Indiana. Speculation has him coming here for another reason.

Donnelly held a manufacturing summit at Ivy Tech in Indianapolis. Cummins, Chrysler, Brevini Wind USA are just some of the participants. Donnelly says he wants to take back any information gathered Monday to his district. But he admits he is in the middle of a job decision himself.

“I love the job I have but folks have asked me to take a look at governor or senator and I am doing that,” said Donnelly. Donnelly said the factors in his decision will include questions like “How can I help the people of the district I represent the best, and how can I help the state the best? So that is the decision-making process I am going through.”

Donnelly said he expects to make a decision within the next month.

Donnelly could be considering a run for Senate. Former Indiana House Speaker John Gregg has said he’s giving “serious thought” to running for governor next year.

Dry Today… Heavy Rain Building

Posted By · March 7, 2011 at 4:17 am

Highs today will reach the mid to upper 40s across Central Indiana with a mix of sun and clouds.  Overall, a nice day!  Flood Warnings  are still in effect along the Big Blue, White, Wabash, Eel, and Muscatatuck Rivers.

Overnight, mostly cloudy skies will be over the state with temps in the low 30s.

Tuesday, we warm into the 50s, but clouds will thicken as we head into the afternoon.  Late in the afternoon and into the evening, rain develops.  There may be a few thunderstorms too.  The wet weather sticks with us through Wednesday.  At times, rain will be heavy.  It looks like 1-2″ of rain is possible before the moisture exits late Wednesday night.  We will once again be tracking the possibility of flooding.

Wednesday night into Thursday colder air moves in and a few flurries/snow showers are possible.  Little to no accumulation is expected.

Drying Out

Posted By · March 6, 2011 at 6:40 am

The heavy rain is gone, but the flooding threat is still here.  Most of Central Indiana is still under Flood Warnings until this afternoon.

Today will be a chance for the state to start to dry out.  Highs today will reach the low 40s with a mix of sun and clouds.

Overnight, we drop into the mid 2os with partly cloudy skies. 

Monday, highs warm into the mid to upper 40s with partly cloudy skies.  (We could get used to this kind of forecast… right?)

We don’t stay dry for long, more rain moves in late Tuesday into Wednesday.  Showers and thunderstorms are likely with up to 1″ of rain possible at this time.  We’ll continue to update you on the threat for severe storms, and how much rain is expected.

Thursday, much colder air moves in, and that could produce a few flurries.

The good news?  As we head into next weekend, the sunshine returns.
