The dry and mild trend continues across central Indiana.

Clouds will decrease later this evening.  Another cool night is on tap with lows returning to the lower 50s.  A similar day is ahead on Wednesday with a mix of sun and low clouds along with highs in the middle 70s.

We are forecasting more clouds on Sunday, as a developing weather system brings storm chances.  Right now we are timing the best chance for scattered storms from about 2pm to 9pm.  There still could be a few adjustments to the timing and we will keep you updated.  Highs on Sunday will be in range of 80 to 85 degrees.

A few of the storms later Sunday may be strong, with gusty winds.  The storms will be developing along a cold front.  Central Indiana gets behind that cold front on Monday and it will be cooler again.  There will be a long stretch of dry and mild weather next week, as we forecast lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s.

A Beautiful Friday Night

Posted By · August 21, 2015 at 3:45 pm

It will be a fine evening to enjoy the last weekend at the Indiana State Fair, see Jason Aldean at Klipsch or head out for the kickoff of Operation Football.

TONIGHT

It may start feeling a bit chilly tonight as temperatures will drop back down to the mid 50s for the overnight low.  This will be a bit warmer than last night, particularly for the northern cities, but it will still be nearly 10 degrees below the average low temperature.

You can expect a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday as temperatures make it back up to the lower 80s.  The Colts host the Bears tomorrow night at Lucas Oil Stadium. Temperatures will be in the lower 70s right around the 7:30pm kickoff time.

COLTS

A change in the weather pattern will come by Sunday afternoon.  A cold front pushing its way across the state will kick up some scattered storms on Sunday afternoon and evening.  Some of these storms may be strong so be sure to check back for updates as we continue to track the progressing frontal system.

RPM RPM1 RPM2

Cooler air will fill back in to start the work week on Monday. Mostly sunny skies and below average high temperatures in the mid to upper 70s will persist throughout most of the week before the next chance of storms arrives next Friday.

Cool And Clear Night Ahead

Posted By · August 20, 2015 at 3:55 pm

It is feeling a bit like Fall across central Indiana.  Skies will be mostly clear tonight, with lows in the 50s for most of the area.  We do think upper 40s are possible across the northern third of the state by early Friday.

eve planner lows

If your favorite weather is sunny and 80, Friday is your day.  Friday is also opening night for high school football.  The weather will be great for the first night of Operation Football.  Remember to send us your pictures using #OPFB on social media.  If you are going to one of the games, you may actually need a jacket or sweatshirt once the sun goes down, temperatures will fall quickly into the 60s.

The weekend starts sunny, with highs in the lower 80s on Saturday.  Storm chances return on Sunday.

It will feel like Fall early next week too, with lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s through Thursday.
