Weekend Forecast

Posted By · July 18, 2014 at 4:37 pm
The weekend is here and the weather pattern is warming up.  After several days in the 70s, 80 degree warmth is back for the weekend.

Skies will be partly cloudy Friday evening and overnight, with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Most of central Indiana will be dry this weekend, with highs in the lower and middle 80s.  I say most, because we are tracking a weather system that will sit just to our east.  It will be close enough for some clouds and the slight chance for a shower especially across southern and eastern Indiana.  The heaviest and steadiest rain will stay closer to the center of this weather system and across parts of Ohio.

The warm-up will last through next week, with highs in the middle and upper 80s.  Our next best chance for rain is Wednesday.

From Near Record Lows to a Gradual Warming Trend

Posted By · July 16, 2014 at 3:47 pm
Temperatures right now are in the upper 60s and lower 70s.  There will be clouds this evening, but then clearing skies are in the forecast.
It will be another cool night across central Indiana.  Forecast lows are in the upper 40s and lower 50s.  These numbers are near record levels.  The record is 51 in 1976.  Skies will be mostly clear overnight.

Sunshine is in the Thursday forecast, with highs in the middle 70s.  This will be the beginning of a gradual warming trend.  Highs on Friday will be in the upper 70s, with more sunshine.

The 80s are back for the weekend.  Right now we have most of the weekend dry.  Some of the latest analysis hints at a weather system to our south.  If it gets close enough, there will be the chance for rain.  We include that slight chance for Sunday, but most of the weekend will be dry and warmer.

It will be warm and more humid early next week, with highs in the middle and upper 80s.  There are better rain chances next week too.

Updated Timing on Saturday Storm Chances and the Supermoon

Posted By · July 11, 2014 at 10:46 pm
There were a few clouds near sunset Friday evening, but it was clear enough to see the almost full moon.  The moon will be full early Saturday morning.  The moon is closer to the earth so it will appear bigger and brighter Friday night and Saturday.  This is called a supermoon and this is the first of 3 this year.  The other 2 are on August 10 and September 9.
It will be a dry Friday night, with increasing clouds.  Lows are forecast in the lower and middle 60s.

There will be a complex of storms to watch developing across the northern parts of Illinois late Friday night.  What is left of this complex of storms will be close enough to central Indiana on Saturday that we include scattered storms in our forecast.  It will not rain all day, but keep an extra eye on the weather if you have outdoor plans.  The timing on this complex of storms keeps changing.  Right now this complex is forecast to impact northern and western Indiana between 7am and noon and the southern half of the state between noon and 3pm.  There will be changes to the timing, as we new information.  Stay tuned for updates.  The slight risk for severe weather includes the northern part of the on Saturday.  This includes:  Lafayette, Kokomo, Marion and Hartford City.

Friday Forecast and Weekend Storm Chances

Posted By · July 10, 2014 at 4:14 pm
It will be another mild night across central Indiana, with lows near 60.  Skies will be mostly clear and we are forecasting more sunshine on Friday.  Highs on Friday will be in the lower 80s.
PLANNER HIGHS

The weekend forecast is a bit tricky.  There will be a couple of complexes of storms possible on Saturday and Sunday.  The weekend will not be a wash-out, but there will be rain chances.  An early look at the timing has one complex across central Indiana during the early half of Saturday.  Scattered storms are possible on Sunday too.  You can see this with Futuretrak13.  Remember there will be changes to the timing, so stay tuned for updates.

RPM RPM2 RPM3 RPM4

The best advice for outdoor plans is to check back the SkyTrak13 Weather Team for updates on the timing.  These complexes are difficult to time until they develop.  Remember you can track the storms along with us by downloading the SkyTrak13 Weather app.

Highs this weekend will be in the lower and middle 80s.  More storms are possible on Monday, before a major cool down.  In the Skytrak13 7 day forecast, highs by Tuesday and Wednesday will only be in the lower 70s.

The day will start in the upper 50s.  Temperatures will be in the lower 70s by noon and forecast highs are near 80 degrees.
There is lots of sunshine in the forecast for Thursday and Friday.  Futuretrak 13 is clear through Friday evening.
RPM RPM2
There is a complex of storms that we will watch closely Friday night and early Saturday.  If is holds together, we may need to dodge some rain early Saturday.  The weekend will not be a washout, but it won’t be completely dry either.  A few more storms are possible on Sunday.  Highs this weekend will be in the lower and middle 80s and it will be more humid too.
The SkyTrak 13 7 day forecast has rain chances through Monday and much cooler air arriving by Wednesday.
