Chilly…. Windy… Rainy Saturday

Posted By · April 16, 2011 at 4:44 am

Keep the rain gear handy today!  Temps will remain steady around 50 degrees for the day, with scattered light showers.  Wind gusts up to 35 mph will be possible, so it will be a very breezy day.

Tonight, we dry out as temps drop to the upper 30s, again, wind gusts up to 30mph will be possible, so it’s going to feel much cooler.

Sunday, the sunshine returns, and we add 10 degrees to the high to top out around 60 degrees.  We will still be dealing with a brisk breeze up to 25mph.

Starting late Monday, the chance for showers and thunderstorms return as temps slowly warm into the 70s later this week.

All the details are in your 7 day forecast below!

Stormy Friday

Posted By · April 15, 2011 at 7:57 am

If April showers bring May flowers, then the month of May should be beautiful in Indiana.

Look for periods of rain and thunderstorms today around the state. We could see an inch or close to it, in Indianapolis and some computer models suggest that Eastern Indiana, around Richmond, could receive 3 inches of rain.

If you are headed downtown for the Race For The Cure Saturday, dress for a cool and damp day. There is a chance for a couple of periods of drizzle and light rain and temperatures will hold steady in the upper 40s during the event. We will bring back the beautiful April sunshine Sunday!

Posted By · April 14, 2011 at 6:38 am

Highs today will hit close to 70 degrees with mostly sunny skies.  It’s going to be a great day!  Get out and enjoy it while you can!!!

Overnight, the wind picks with gusts up to 25mph as lows drop to the mid 40s.

Friday, highs only hit the low 60s and showers and scattered thunderstorms develop for the afternoon.  Heavy rain is likely into Friday evening and night.  A few storms could be strong to severe, and some spots could pick up, up to 2″ of rain.

When you’re up bright and early for the Komen Race for the Cure, grab layers and rain gear.  A few scattered showers are expected Saturday morning and temps will be in the upper 40s for all of the festivities.

Highs on Saturday will only reach the low 50s with scattered showers, so we’re not moving much in terms of a warm up!

Temps stay cool on Sunday and Monday, but sunshine returns… before more rain comes back by Tuesday.

Soggy Start to the Week

Posted By · April 11, 2011 at 8:25 am

So long 80s!

Highs today will fall from the 60s in the morning, to the 50s by the evening with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms.  It’s going to be a soggy day with up to .50″ of additional rainfall.  That number is especially true in our Southeastern counties.

Overnight we dry out with temps in the low 40s and wind gusts up to 20mph.

Tuesday, sunshine makes a return as we hit the low 60s.  By Wednesday, we’ll be shooting for a high in the upper 60s.

Showers and thunderstorms return Thursday and Friday.

And, we’re tracking a cool down for Saturday with temps only in the 50s and a chance of rain.

Showers… Storms… & Weekend Heat

Posted By · April 9, 2011 at 7:04 am

Highs today will reach the mid 70s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.  T-Storms are likely through midday, and some storms may be strong to severe.  A slight risk of severe weather is in effect along and South of I-70.  Damaging wind, large hail, and very heavy rain is likely from any strong to severe storm that develops.  As we head into the afternoon, the activity will become more isolated, but the chance for a pop up shower or storm will stay in the forecast.

Overnight, we dry out with partly cloudy skies and patchy fog.  Temps will only drop to the low 60s.

Sunday, looks like a summer day.  We should remain dry with highs in the low 80s.  The record high for Sunday is 84 set back in 1930, so near record breaking heat is possible.

Sunday night into Monday morning a strong storm system will push through the state.  Once again, we are tracking the potential for severe storms.  Damaging wind, hail, and heavy rain are the primary threats.

We dry out and cool down Tuesday, with more showers and storms for the end of the week.
