Coolest in More Than a Month: A One-Day Cool Down

Posted By · July 20, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Fog, low clouds, patchy drizzle and some stray showers have held temperatures down in a big way through midday. At noon, we were only 72 degrees! By late afternoon, highs may only nudge into the low 80s – the coolest since June 13th when it only hit 80.

Some parts of Northeast Indiana may only make 70s for highs, while mid to upper 80s look likely for areas in Western and Southwestern Indiana.

Don’t get used to the cooler air. After a cool start tomorrow in the 60s, we could top out in the low 90s for Saturday and mid 90s on Sunday. It looks like a dry weekend ahead for all of Central Indiana.

And though we picked up officially 0.68″ in Indy the last two days, we still need more! Our rain has only made a tiny dent in the drought.

The drought monitor released yesterday shows more than half of Indiana in an Extreme Drought. It will take a lot more rain over a lot longer stretch to ease these conditions. We’re still 2.3″ below average rainfall for July, 6.46″ below average since June 1st, and 8.8″ below average since January 1st.

Our best chances of more much-needed rain in your WTHR-TV 7-day arrive Tuesday and Wednesday with scattered showers/storms possible. There is also plenty of heat in the next week…the exception: today. Enjoy it.

Our Hoosier Pic at noon from yesterday’s storms in Central Indiana. This shelf cloud captured by Alison Leflower in Mount Comfort is one example of the powerful storms that swept through the state.

Strong to Severe Storms Today

Posted By · July 19, 2012 at 4:42 am

Indianapolis’ dry streak is over.  Wednesday Indy picked up .40″ of rain.  That brings our total since June 1st up to .49″ of rain.  More rain chances are coming our way today, but they won’t wipe out the drought that’s blanketing the state.

Strong to severe storms are expected across Central Indiana today.

Highs will reach the 90s with scattered storms developing throughout the day.  Some storms may be strong to severe across Central Indiana with damaging wind, hail, heavy rain and frequent lightning.  All of Central Indiana is under a slight risk for severe storms.

Tonight scattered showers and storms wind down with temps falling into the 60s.

Friday, cooler air moves in as highs top out in the mid 80s.

We’ll be dry this weekend as temps push into the low 90s again.

Our next best chance for rain arrives Tuesday as temps push into the mid 90s.

Triple Digit Heat & Storm Chances

Posted By · July 18, 2012 at 4:34 am

Highs will top out near 100 degrees today with scattered storms expected to develop for the afternoon and evening.  Today’s record high is 100 set in 1954.  Widespread severe weather is not expected, but an isolated severe storm is possible with damaging wind and hail.  A Heat Advisory is in effect until 8 tonight, at times it could feel up to 110 degrees with the humidity.

Tuesday, Indianapolis hit 101 degrees, making it the seventh time this year we’ve hit the century mark!  Even though a few lucky spots received heavy rain, the official measuring spot for Indy remained dry, so our rain total since June 1st is still only .09″.

Scattered showers and storms are possible tonight as temps settle into the low 70s.

Thursday we’ll have another chance for scattered showers and storms as highs top out in the low 90s.  Some storms may be strong to severe.

Friday we’ll see partly cloudy skies with highs around 90.

The weekend looks dry with highs in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.

Our next chance of rain moves in Tuesday.

It’s Another Record High!

Posted By · July 17, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Our temp in Indianapolis has made it to 101 degrees this afternoon so far. That beats the old record high of 100 set in 1887. We could be in record territory again tomorrow (the record is 100 set in 1954).

Some isolated storms have developed this afternoon and we have a chance at scattered showers and storms tomorrow afternoon.

Our Heat Advisory continues ’til 8pm tomorrow.

Hang in there!

Record Heat, Heat Advisory, Isolated Storm Chances

Posted By · July 17, 2012 at 1:08 pm

A Heat Advisory is in effect until 8pm tomorrow. Air temps will likely soar to around 100 with heat index values reaching 105+. Be careful out there!

Temps at noon were already 3 degrees warmer than at noon Monday. We hit a high of 98 yesterday, so it’s feasible we could hit 100, maybe 101 today! We were at 94 degrees at 1pm.

To tie today’s record set in 1887, we need to hit 100. To beat it, we need to hit 101. We could do it!

Here’s your hour-by-hour afternoon forecast.

So how hot has it been this year? Some impressive stats! We’ve hit 90+ 31 times (more than double the average). We’ve hit 95+ 14 times – will be 15 later today (more than triple the average). We’ve hit 100+ 6 times – later today will likely make 7 (more than 30 times the average!)

The heat eases a little in your WTHR-TV 7-day, but then builds right back next week. As for rain chances, we could pop an isolated storm this afternoon, but our best chance of rain come tomorrow afternoon as a cold front drops in – scattered showers/storms are possible with a 30% chance of rain. We could still have a few showers/storms Thursday with isolated rain possible Friday and again Tuesday.

Finally our Hoosier Pic at noon of the gorgeous cloud everyone was talking about last night! Thanks to Justin Morales for posting his shot of the cloud when it looked like a giant heart billowing in the sky! That storm in Hancock county did manage to drop some beneficial rain on areas from Cumberland to near Greenfield and New Palestine.

It’s a Record…98 Degrees So Far

Posted By · July 16, 2012 at 4:16 pm

We tied today’s record high of 98 degrees set in 1988, and we could watch temps climb a little more before the day is over.

And get ready for even MORE heat and humidity to come.

A HEAT ADVISORY has been issued for Central Indiana tomorrow from noon to 8pm. Temps near 100 with heat indices around 105 will make for a dangerously hot day!

Be careful out there!

Prepare for Record Heat and Possible Triple Digits

Posted By · July 16, 2012 at 1:12 pm

What a way to warm up! Our low this morning was 74, we hit 82 at 9am, and climbed to 93 by 12:15pm. The record for today is 98 and that’s also my forecast for this afternoon. Heat indices around 100 are also possible. Stay cool if you can! The UV Index is very high at a “10″ which means less than 15 minutes to burn if you’re unprotected.

The heat builds the next couple days and we could hit 100 both Tuesday and Wednesday which would tie 2 more records. We’ve already had 6 days of 100+ heat this summer. A cold front sinks southward on Wednesday bringing us our best chance of rain all week. Scattered showers and t-storms are possible, mainly afternoon to evening. Thursday and Friday we get a cool-down with highs dropping to around 90 each day along with isolated rain possible…but we could warm right back up through the 90s by the weekend.

Finally, our WTHR-TV Hoosier Pic at noon today from the Lapel Village Fair that took place over the weekend. Daniel Paull took this pic of the Bumpy Barrel Ride in Downtown Lapel. Submit your pic! Post it here: https://www.facebook.com/ChikageWindlerFanPage or here: https://www.facebook.com/WTHR13

Stay cool if you can and cross your fingers for rain!

A Record Dry Spell, Plus Near-Record Heat Coming

Posted By · July 15, 2012 at 8:31 pm

We’ve tied the record driest dry spell…not something anyone is happy about. The previous record 45-day dry spell was .09″ from August 13 to September 26, 1908. Now this year, we’ve matched that with only .09″ falling officially for Indy from June 1st to July 15th. More records could also be reached. For example, if we stay dry through the end of Monday, we will tie the mark for driest starts to the month of July. That record is held by July 1901. We had some very isolated showers/storms Sunday, but most areas stayed dry. Expect more dry weather Monday and Tuesday. Our best chance of rain all week arrives Wednesday with scattered showers/storms possible as a weak cold front drops through.

Then there’s the heat. We may have finally broken our streak of 90+ highs when Saturday’s high missed the mark by one degree, but we started a new streak Sunday! The high hit 95 and we could climb a little more in the next couple days. Monday’s high could get close to a record. I’m forecasting 97 and the record is 98 set in 1988. Tuesday we could get even hotter with a high of 98 (spots like Lafayette could hit 100). The record for Tuesday is 100 set in 1887.

Heat and humidity and mainly dry weather will be the rule for the majority of your WTHR-TV 7-day.

Unfortunately, the outlook 6-10 day outlook calls for more drier-than-average and warmer-than-average weather.

We’ve now hit 90+ 29 times, 95+ 13 times, and 100+ 6 times this summer. And there is plenty of summer yet to go.

Hang in there!
