Sunny Saturday… Rainy Sunday

Posted By · April 30, 2011 at 6:31 am

Hello sunshine!  Highs today will reach the low to mid 70s with a few clouds for the afternoon.  Winds will gust up to 25mph, so it’s going to be breezy for any outdoor activities you have planned.

Tonight, showers and thunderstorms move into Central Indiana.  As early as 10pm a few sprinkles may show up on the radar.  Overnight, the activity will pick up with temps falling into the mid 50s.

Sunday, we’ll wake up with scattered showers and storms.  I think we’ll get a break in the rain for the middle part of the day before more showers and storms move in for the late afternoon.  Highs will reach the mid to upper 60s.  At this time, no severe weather is expected.

The rain continues into your morning commute on Monday, and along and South of I-70, up to 1 to 1.5″ of rain will be possible.

Check out the 7 day forecast for what to expect for the rest of the week.

Friday Sunshine

Posted By · April 29, 2011 at 5:34 am

The last day no rain fell across Central Indiana was last Thursday!

I am happy to say… today’s forecast is sponsored by the letter “s” for sunshine!

Highs today will reach the low to mid 60s with partly cloudy skies.

Overnight, we remain dry with temps in the mid 40s.

Saturday, we warm into the mid 70s with partly cloudy skies.  Winds will come out of the South up to 20mph, so it will be a bit breezy!

Sunday, scattered showers and storms are possible.  We’re looking at up to an inch of rain possible, so this could make flooding conditions worse.

The rain ends early Monday, with more sunshine for next week… check out the extended forecast below:

Scattered Showers & Storms Thursday

Posted By · April 28, 2011 at 7:47 am

Get ready for a breezy day that won’t be a complete washout.  Highs today will only hit the upper 50s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some storms may turn strong to severe this afternoon.  We won’t see an all day rain, but where storms pop up, heavy rain is expected.  If you don’t see rain… get ready for the wind.  Gusts up to 40 mph are likely through this evening.

Tonight, temps drop to the low 40s with patchy drizzle or sprinkles and wind gusts up to 25mph.

Friday, oh boy this is the forecast I’ve been waiting to give!  Highs will reach the mid 60s with sunshine! 

Saturday looks nice with temps in the mid 70s, showers and thunderstorms look to develop for Saturday night… and they continue into Sunday.

Dry Weather Around the Corner

Posted By · April 27, 2011 at 5:59 am

Highs today will hit the mid to upper 60s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Rain is likely this morning, and will taper off as we head into the afternoon, with another wave moving in for late afternoon into the evening.  Some storms may be strong to severe, but we’re not looking at widespread severe weather. 

A Flash Flood Watch is still in effect for Central Indiana until tonight.

Overnight winds gust up to 25mph with temps in the mid 40s and scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Thursday will be much cooler with scattered showers and temps in the 50s.

If you want sunshine… Friday is your day!  Highs will hit the mid to upper 60s with partly cloudy skies.

Saturday looks dry too, with a chance of scattered showers and t-storms Sunday.

More Rain & Storms Tuesday

Posted By · April 26, 2011 at 7:24 am

We’ll get a break from the rain at times today with highs reaching the mid 70s.  Winds will gust up to 35 mph, so it’s going to be breezy as showers and thunderstorms re-develop.  Some storms may be strong to severe.  Damaging winds and hail are the biggest threats, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Overnight, temps drop to the upper 50s with more showers and storms.

Wednesday, more of the same with temps in the upper 60s.  Again, some storms may be strong to severe.

Thursday will be much cooler as the rain starts to taper off with highs only reaching the upper 50s.

Friday looks dry, and for the weekend more chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms for Saturday and Sunday.

Soggy Week Ahead with Flooding

Posted By · April 25, 2011 at 6:07 am

A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for all of Central Indiana until Tuesday morning.  Click here to stay on top of new watches and warnings posted, just click on your county, and you’ll be able to see what each watch/warning means.

Highs today will reach the upper 60s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some storms may be strong to severe in our extreme Southwestern viewing area as we head into tonight.

Overnight, more showers and storms with temps in the low 60s.

Tuesday, highs will hit around 70 degrees with scattered showers and storms.  Some storms could become strong to severe across all of Central Indiana.  Large hail, damaging winds, and flash flooding with heavy rain are our primary concerns, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

By Wednesday, 2-4″ of rain is expected across Central Indiana, and more will be on the way for “hump day.” 

Friday looks to be the best day of the week with more chances for rain on Saturday and Sunday. 

We’ll keep you posted on any new flooding concerns that pop up, as well as severe storm chances.

Happy Easter!

Posted By · April 24, 2011 at 6:56 am

Highs today will reach the low to mid 60s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some storms may produce heavy rainfall, especially along and south of I-70 where a Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Monday.  One to three inches of rain is possible today through Monday south of I-70.

Overnight, more scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible as temps drop to the low to mid 50s.

Monday, more of the same.  Scattered showers and storms are possible at any time, but heavy rain will become more likely as we head into the evening and early Tuesday morning.  Areas along and south of I-70 are under a slight risk for severe storms.  We will be watching for damaging wind, hail, and the possibility of an isolated tornado Monday afternoon and into the night.

Tuesday, more rain, and that story continues Wednesday.  By Wednesday, some areas south of I-70 could pick up, up to 7 inches of rain, so flooding will be likely, even areas that usually don’t flood.

We’ll keep you posted about severe weather chances, and flooding concerns throughout the week.

Rain & Storm Chances Don’t Go Away

Posted By · April 23, 2011 at 7:20 am

Highs today will reach 70 degrees with wind gusts out of the Southwest up to 25mph.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, especially south of I-70 today.  The entire day will not be a washout, but we will see a chance for a shower or thunderstorm at almost any time, so keep the rain gear handy!  There is a front that’s parked just south of the state, as the front moves north or south, our rain chances go up and down.  So, if you’re wondering why this forecast is so tricky, that’s the challenge in it!

Overnight, more showers and storms move in.  Right now, it looks rainy starting as early as 7pm, and lasting past midnight.

Sunday, temps will be in the low 50s for the start of your Easter Day.  Showers and storms will be possible again at any time, but mainly south of I-70 for the majority of the day.

Monday, we will be watching for some thunderstorms to be strong to severe.  By Monday… some spots south of I-70 could have 5 inches of rain, so checking in with the forecast will be important through the weekend.

I have my eyes on Thursday… the afternoon looks dry… and sunshine returns Friday.  Yep, it’s a soggy forecast.
