Another Hot & Humid Day Ahead

Posted By · July 12, 2011 at 4:26 am

Whew!  Monday the high hit 96 in Indy, and with dew points in the upper 70s to around 80… that felt like 110+.  What a day!

Today, highs will reach the low to mid 90s.  Heat indices for the metro will run close to 100 degrees, in our southern counties it will feel closer to 100 to 110.  A heat advisory is in effect for our the southern counties in our viewing area.  Click here to see the advisory.  There’s a 20-30% chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms as we hit the peak heating of the day and move into tonight.  Some storms may be strong to severe South of I-70.  Damaging wind is the greatest threat.

A cold front triggers the storms today and tonight… but that front will spell relief  Wednesday as we cool off to the low 80s.

Thursday is another day to kick back and enjoy partly cloudy skies with highs in the low to mid 80s.

Starting Friday, another warm up begins, and we could be in the low 90s for the weekend with isolated thunderstorm chances.  For the most part, we look absolutely dry!

Dangerous Heat Hits Indiana

Posted By · July 11, 2011 at 4:56 am

Highs today will reach the low to mid 90s across Central Indiana today.  Dew points are expected to hit the 70s… put the heat and humidity together, and it will feel like 100 to 110 degrees.  All of Central Indiana is under a Heat Advisory until 8pm.  Use extra care today by taking it easy and cooling off when you can.  The best way to stay hydrated is to drink plenty of water and decaffeinated, non-alcoholic beverages.  Besides the heat, strong to severe storms are possible today.  All of Central Indiana is under a slight risk for severe storms.  Damaging wind looks to be the biggest threat.

Any storms that pop should die down as we head into the overnight.  Temps tonight only drop to the mid 70s.

Tuesday, highs will once again reach the low 90s, and the humidity sticks.  Late afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms are possible.  Some may be strong to severe Southwest of Indianapolis.

Scattered showers and storms will likely continue Tuesday night into Wednesday.  The good news about Wednesday?  We have a bit of a cool down coming our way!  Don’t get too excited though… the 90s look to come back for the weekend.

Knozone Action Day & Dangerous Heat

Posted By · July 10, 2011 at 5:32 am

Central Indiana’s wonderful weekend continues with highs in the low 90s.  We’ll see mostly sunny skies today with plenty of sunshine!  A Knozone Action Day has been declared for poor air quality.  You can help by reducing your car’s idle time, filling up after 6pm, and mowing the law after 6pm.

Overnight, we stay dry as temps drop to the low 70s.

Monday, the heat is on!  Highs will hit the low 90s, but with very humid conditions, it will feel more like 100 to 110!  There’s a 30% chance for isolated thunderstorms as we head into the afternoon.

Tuesday, the temps and the heat index sticks with us.  There’s a better chance for thunderstorms, and some may be strong to severe across the entire state.

Wednesday and Thursday will be the “coolest” days of the week before we start to warm up into the 90s again for next weekend.

Hot & Humid Weekend

Posted By · July 9, 2011 at 6:35 am

The heat is on!  (Cue the 80s music!)

Highs today will hit the upper 80s with mostly sunny skies, and tomorrow we pop into the low 90s.  No rain is expected for the weekend.

This month Indianapolis has only picked up .11″ of rain… and we need some to green up the grass.  Our next chance of rain arrives Monday and Tuesday as highs remain in the 90s.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely for the beginning of the week.

Today’s blog is short, but sweet.  Enjoy the sunshine!

Scattered Showers & Storms Diminish

Posted By · July 8, 2011 at 4:23 am

Highs today will reach the mid 80s with a 30% chance of scattered showers and storms.  Not everyone will see rain, but if a shower or thunderstorms sets up over your back yard, brief heavy rain is possible.  The later we go into the afternoon, the better shot at dry weather.  No severe storms are expected today.

Overnight, the skies clear and temps drop to the mid 60s.

Saturday and Sunday, get ready for temps near 90 with plenty of sunshine!

Our next chance of rain moves in Monday as highs push into the low 90s.

Enjoy the dry weekend!

Slight Chance for Storms… Heat Building

Posted By · July 7, 2011 at 5:43 am

The heat and humidity is building again!

Wednesday, Indianapolis hit 90 degrees, that’s the 8th time this year we’ve been that warm.  On average, Indy hits about 18 days of 90+ temps a year.  We’ll have another shot at adding to this years tally in the 7 day forecast.

Highs today will hit the upper 80s with a 20% chance of isolated showers or storms developing in the afternoon.  Severe storms are not expected, but they could linger into the overnight as temps drop to the upper 60s.  The more likely time to see rain will be tonight.

Friday, a 20% chance of isolated showers and storms is expected to continue as highs hit the mid to upper 80s.

Saturday and Sunday look sunny and dry, but it will be muggy as temps push to the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.  We’ll have to watch Sunday’s forecast as we get closer to the weekend, because is a system moves in early, we could be tracking a few thunderstorms.

Starting Monday, a daily chance of thunderstorms creeps back into the forecast, but temps relatively stay the same.

Isolated Showers & Storms Possible Wednesday

Posted By · July 6, 2011 at 5:34 am

Today won’t be a washout, but we do have a chance for isolated showers and thunderstorms.  Highs will hit the upper 80s with partly cloudy skies.  At this time, it looks like rain is more likely in our Northern counties, but there’s still a shot at an isolated shower or thunderstorm for the entire viewing area.

Overnight, temps drop to the upper 60s with a slight chance for a stray shower or storm.

Thursday, highs hit the mid 80s, and there’s a slight chance for showers or thunderstorms until midday.

If you’re already craving sunshine for the weekend, you’re in luck!  Highs will hit the upper 80s to around 90 both Saturday and Sunday with mostly sunny skies.
