The 90s Are Back

Get ready to start counting 90 degree days in Central Indiana again.

Get ready to start counting 90 degree days in Central Indiana again.

Highs will top out in the low 90s today.  A Knozone Action Day is in effect for the second day in a row.  Today looks to be the 50th time Indy has hit 90 degrees or higher this year.

Tonight is Operation Football!  The forecast looks fabulous, as temps stay in the 80s for most of the games.

The weekend will be hot and humid with temps in the low 90s.   Late Sunday afternoon an isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible.  Showers and storms become more likely late Sunday night into Monday.

Knozone Action Day & Warmer Temps

Like the heat? More 90 degree days are headed to Central Indiana!

Like the heat?  More 90 degree days are headed to Central Indiana!

Today will be the coolest day through the weekend as highs top out in the upper 80s.  Winds will be light out of the south up to 5 mph. 

A Knozone Action Day is in effect for many counties.  This means that people with breathing problems could have a harder time today.  To help improve the air quality, cut down on car idling, carpool, and don’t fill up your gas tank or mow your lawn until after 6pm.

So far this year Indianapolis has had 49 days of 90+ temps, we’ll add a few more to the tally this weekend.

In the 7 day forecast, the heat and humidity return.  Our next best chance for rain is Sunday night into Monday when scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely.  It’s too early to tell if some storms may be severe.  Behind the rain are much cooler temps to kick off back to work and school next week.

The Heat is Coming Back

Central Indiana still needs rain, but we’ll have to wait a few days until our next chance of showers and storms moves in. Until then, get ready for the heat!

Central Indiana still needs rain, but we’ll have to wait a few days until our next chance of showers and storms moves in.  Until then, get ready for the heat!

Highs will reach the mid 80s today, that’s normal for this time of year.  We’ll see mostly sunny skies and comfortable humidity.

If you’re looking for a fun, free family activity tonight, check out Jazz on the Point at Eagle Creek Marina.  The concert put on my Indy Parks kicks off at 6:30pm.

Tonight temps drop to the mid 50s to around 60 degrees.

Our gradual climb to 90 starts tomorrow.  Thursday the upper 80s are back, and by Friday we’re talking 90!

For the weekend the low 90s are expected, and the humidity will be back.

Our next best chance for scattered showers and storms moves in late Sunday night, sticking around through Monday.  As the rain moves through, the temps drop back into the 80s.

Gradual Warm Up for Central Indiana

Temps are warming up across the Hoosier state!

Temps are warming up across the Hoosier state!

After a few showers and thunderstorms last night, patch fog is possible north of I-70 this morning.  Take a look at rainfall totals from Monday.

Today highs reach the low 80s with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.  A slight chance of sprinkles is possible, especially across East Central Indiana.  There will be a light wind out of the north.

Tonight temps drop to the 50s, with mostly clear skies.  With light winds, patch fog is possible toward sunrise Wednesday morning.

Enjoy the 80s… by Friday highs top out close to 90 degrees.  Our next best chance of rain is late Sunday into Monday.

Warming through the Work Week

After 3 straight days with highs in the upper 70s, we’re heading into the 80s to start the week with the return of 90-degree heat possible by late week into next weekend. Today highs should top out around 80 or slightly warmer with partly cloudy skies and only a 10% chance of a lonely shower.

Tomorrow, we’ll continue the warming trend with low 80s on the way. We’ll nudge to above average temps by midweek. Today is our 11th straight day with at or below average temps…quite a feat given the hot weather we endured during June, July, and early August. Our last 90+ high was August 8th and it looks like we may see the 90s return Friday through Sunday.

Quiet Work Week Setting Up

Today is the coolest day of the next seven around Central Indiana. We’ll see great conditions, with the chance for an isolated shower or storm.

Today is the coolest day of the next seven around Central Indiana.  We’ll see great conditions, with the chance for an isolated shower or storm.

Highs will reach the upper 70s with a 20% chance for an isolated shower or storm this afternoon as disturbance moves through the state.  Most spots stay dry, and if you are lucky enough for a shower to pop up over you, don’t expect much rain.  Even though Indianapolis has picked up more than five inches of rain this month, we’re still running more than seven inches below normal for the year.

Tonight temps drop to the mid to upper 50s with partly cloudy skies.

Tuesday our warm up begins as we heat up to the low 80s.  Our normal high this time of year is 84 degrees.

By Friday we’re back in the upper 80s.

Our next best chance for rain is late Saturday into Sunday.  This system doesn’t look very impressive as of right now, we’ll keep an eye on it for you.

Gradual Warm-Up, Mainly Dry Week Ahead

What a weekend! We enjoyed cool mornings, mild afternoons, and a gorgeous sunset to finish things off on Sunday. I snapped this pic from White River State Park Sunday at dusk. Highs for the last 3 days have been in the upper 70s, but we’ll nudge things up a smidge for the work week.

We’ll start Monday off on a cool note with 50s for the kids at the bus stop, but plan on another nice rebound with a high around 80 by afternoon.

While most areas will be dry Monday, there’s a weak front that could trigger some very isolated showers by afternoon, so I’m holding on to a 10% chance of rain. If any showers develop (much as we saw with the couple that developed in Western Indiana Sunday afternoon), they’ll probably only drop a few hundredths of an inch of rain.

While we’re at a 3″+ surplus of rain for August, the annual precip deficit is more than 7″, so we can use any rain coming our way. Aside from the 10% chance Monday, and even lower chance Tuesday (mainly east), most places will have to wait until next weekend for a decent chance of rain.

After 10 straight days of at or below average temperatures with a couple more to come, we’ll see temps warm above average mid to late week. Friday looks like the warmest day of the week with highs in the upper 80s to near 90.

Finally, our Hoosier Pic of the Day Sunday from Boone County. The combination of sunflowers and sunset made a gorgeous scene! Thanks to Regina Hughes-Garner for sharing her pic! Submit yours here: https://www.facebook.com/ChikageWindlerFanPage?ref=hl or here: https://www.facebook.com/WTHR13

Below Normal Temps & Possible Spotty Showers Sunday

Our beautiful Central Indiana weather rolls on with highs in the upper 70s to round out the weekend, with just a slight chance of a spotty shower or storm.

Our beautiful Central Indiana weather rolls on with highs in the upper 70s to round out the weekend, with just a slight chance of a spotty shower or storm.

Highs will reach the upper 70s today, our normal temp this time of year is around 84.  There’s a 20% chance of a spotty shower or thunderstorm, but most spots look to remain dry.

Tonight, temps drop to the mid 50s under partly cloudy skies.  Kids may need a light jacket as they head out to the bus stop tomorrow morning.

We still need rain, August has been a wet month, with more than five inches of rain falling.

However, we’re still running seven inches below our yearly average.

Monday we have another slight chance of rain, but most spots remain dry as temps warm into the upper 70s.  We’re back to the 80s by Tuesday and by the end of the week more sunshine and near 90.  Our next best chance for rain moves in late Saturday and Sunday.

Another Mild Day Ahead…With a Tiny Shower Chance

After a sunny Saturday with a high of 78, we’ll remain mild on Sunday for the last day of the State Fair and the MotoGP race. The difference: more cloud cover and an ever-so-slight chance of a shower as a weak front drops into the state during the afternoon. Rain chances look very low – around 10% for Central Indiana and around 20% for Northern Indiana. Rain totals for those spots that do get a shower (outside shot at a t-shower) will probably only measure in the hundredths of an inch.

Our best chance of rain comes late next Saturday into next Sunday. Until then, we’ll see gradually warming temps. We’ve now had 9 straight days of above average temps to start August, followed up by 9 straight days of at or below average temps. We’ll stay below average another few days before some upper 80s return late week.

Finally, our Hoosier Pic at 6 from Beth Gootee who took advantage of the stellar weather to plan a camping trip! What a weekend for enjoying the great outdoors.

Have a good one!

Fantastic Fall Like Weekend

Central Indiana’s taste of fall rolls on!

Love the 70s?  We’ve got more in store for you this weekend!

Highs will reach the upper 70s today with mostly sunny skies.  Even though we’re below our normal high of 84, you’ll still need sunscreen as the UV index will be high. 

Tonight temps drop into the 50s, so you can give your a/c a break!

Sunday, we’ll see an increase of clouds with highs in the upper 70s.  There’s a 10% chance for an isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm.  Most spots remain dry, I wouldn’t cancel any outdoor plans at this time based on the very slight chance for rain.

We still need rain, but we don’t have many chances in the 7 day.

Just a 10% chance of isolated storms Monday, then dry weather through next Saturday.  The upper 70s stick around through Monday, but by the end of the week the heat returns as highs push close to 90 as we get closer to the weekend.
