Get ready for a windy, cold day across Central Indiana.

Get ready for a windy, cold day across Central Indiana.

Highs stay nearly steady in the upper 30s today, but may fall a few degrees as we head into the afternoon.  Winds will gust out of the west up to 40mph.  To say it’s going to be breezy is an understatement!  A rain/snow mix is possible, but we’re not looking at any accumulation.

Tonight, flurries are possible as lows drop to the low 20s.  It’s going to be chilly with winds still howling out of the west up to 20mph.

Saturday is cool and breezy.  Again, winds come out of the west up to 20mph, and highs only reach the mid 30s.

Sunday, sunshine returns and highs surge into upper 40s to around 50 degrees.

More rain comes our way Tuesday, and we could see some thunderstorms early Wednesday morning.  As of right now temps look to be in the 50s. We’ll keep an eye on that!

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Thursday

Showers and thunderstorms will move across Central Indiana today. Some storms could be strong to severe across portions of our state.

Overnight, winds pick up to gust out of the west up to 30mph.  A mixture of rain and snow is possible as colder air moves in.

A rain/snow mix is possible again on Friday as highs only reach the upper 30s to around 40 degrees.  A light dusting of snow may be possible Friday afternoon.

The weekend starts off cool, but warms up starting Sunday.

Another pattern of wet weather moves in next week.

Warming Up & Rain Chances Stick Around

Temps in the 50s? Yep! They’re on the way!

Temps in the 50s?  Yep!  They’re on the way! 

Clouds will be on the increase today as highs hit the low to mid 50s across Central Indiana.  I can’t rule out a spotty shower north of I-70 during the day, but most spots look to stay dry.  It’s warm, above our average high of 43, however, not a record, that would be 70 set back in 1922.

Tonight, a spotty shower is possible as temps drop to the low 40s.

Scattered showers are likely Thursday, but temps will reach the mid to upper 50s!  We won’t set a record, that was 71 back in 2000.  A rumble of thunder is possible too, but severe storms are not expected.

By Friday, much cooler air moves in and a rain/snow mix is possible.

If you’re looking forward to the weekend… get ready for drier conditions, and a bit of a warm up.

How Much Rain? And How Much More?

This morning’s rain came and went, bringing less than 0.2″ along the way. Officially at Indianapolis International Airport, our rain total was 0.13″. Here’s a map of other selected rain totals across the state:

We’ll have cloudy, windy weather for the rest of the day and though temperatures could nudge near 50, it won’t feel that warm because of the southwest winds gusting 30 mph+ at times. Though I can’t rule out a stray shower here or there, most areas should be dry until late tomorrow. Late Wednesday and through Thursday, some scattered showers are again possible, with most areas only getting 1/10″ or less. Friday we’ll watch colder air move in along with falling temps. A little moisture could bring some rain showers ending as snow showers with a coating of snow possible by then. The coldest air in a while will drop in for a one-day visit on Saturday with highs in the 30s. Here’s your WTHR-TV 7-Day:

Happy Fat Tuesday!

Overnight we’ll see partly cloudy skies with temps in the mid 30s.  Winds will continue to gust out of the southwest up to 25mph, so it will feel very cold early Wednesday morning when you head out the door.

For the most part, Wednesday looks dry as temps top out in the 50s.  Late Wednesday night into Thursday more rain moves into the state.

Temps cool down as we start the weekend, but look to rebound very quickly as we head into next week.

Nice Presidents Day!

Look for highs in the mid 40s today and by Wednesday, highs will reach the low 50s.

We had a beautiful day yesterday but it was really cold with a high of only 39! Today, we start out chilly but really, for this time of year, a very nice day awaits.

By Saturday, we will see temperatures in the 30s as we tap into some cold Arctic air.

All in all, a  great day ahead for kids who don’t go to school due to the Presidents Day holiday. A reminder, admission is free to the Childrens’ Museum today!
