Scattered showers and storms are likely across Central Indiana today.  We’re not expecting severe storms, but up to one inch of rain will be possible as the rain rolls through.  Highs will reach the upper 60s with a breeze out of the south up to 20mph.

Early this evening, showers and storms are still possible, it’s not until after midnight that the radar should start to dry out.  Temps will drop to the upper 50s, and by Sunday morning, the radar should be dry.

Sunday looks mainly dry with highs around 80.  The record for Sunday is 84 set back in 2004.  As of right now Sunday looks dry with a mix of sun and clouds.  Winds will gust out of the south up to 35mph.

Late Sunday night (after midnight) into Monday morning, showers and storms will return to Central Indiana.  Heavy rain with thunderstorms should be in place for your Monday morning commute.  The rain Monday moves out by lunch time.

Drier and cooler air takes over starting Tuesday with temps in the 60s.

Our next chance of rain will enter the forecast starting Thursday and Friday.

Dry Today… Stormy Weekend Setting Up

Posted By · April 13, 2012 at 5:23 am

The warmth is returning to Central Indiana, but rain and thunderstorm chances are increasing as we head towards the weekend.

Highs will reach the mid 60s today with increasing clouds.  If you’re heading to the Indians game, there’s a chance for showers or an isolated thunderstorm this evening.

Overnight, temps drop to the low 50s with scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Saturday, showers and thunderstorms are likely, especially through midday.  Highs will rebound into the low 70s.  It looks like the heaviest rain is setting up north of I-70 right now.

As of right now, Sunday looks mainly dry, but we can’t rule out the chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm.  The best chance for rain and storms moves in late Sunday into Sunday night and Monday morning.  Some storms may be strong to severe, we will continue to monitor the severe weather risk.

Showers and storms continue Monday as temps stick in the 70s.

By Tuesday, we start to dry out with an isolated shower chance, but temps fall into the low 60s.

Wednesday and Thursday look cool and dry as high temperatures stay in the 60s.

Warm & Windy Start to the Work Week

Posted By · April 9, 2012 at 5:00 am

Hold onto your hats, today is going to be very wind across Central Indiana.

Highs will reach the low to mid 60s across the area today with wind gusts up to 35mph out of the west.  Because the humidity is low, fire danger is high, so if you’re doing any grilling, be extra careful.  Especially if you have an open flame outside.

Tonight temps drop to the mid 30s, patchy frost may be possible as we see partly cloudy skies.  For the most part, the wind should be around 10mph from the northwest, so that should prevent any frost from forming.

Our average high this time of year is in the low 60s, and we’ll be below that Tuesday as highs only hit the low 50s.

We will gradually warm up by Friday, but Wednesday, and Thursday mornings we’ll be watching for patchy frost.

Our next best chance of rain moves in Friday, through the weekend as highs rebound to the 70s!

Mild Night

Posted By · April 8, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Temperatures across the state warmed into the low to mid 60s today.  It was a great Easter weekend across Central Indiana, but the windy conditions are just beginning.

Tonight temps drop to the mid 40s with winds relaxing to come out of the west up to 1o mph.  There’s a slight chance for a sprinkle in our extreme Northern viewing area as partly cloudy skies move in.

Monday, highs hit the low to mid 60s with wind gusts out of the west up to 35mph.  Because the humidity is low, fire danger is high.  Allergy sufferers also be on alert, pollen levels will remain high through the next three days with Maple, Poplar and Juniper being the top three.

Patchy frost may be possible early Tuesday morning, but I think the wind will be a bit to strong to allow any frost to form.

Tuesday’s high will only reach the low 50s, below our average of 61!

We’ll be watching for patchy frost again on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

Our next best chance for rain moves in Friday.
