Posted By · April 16, 2015 at 10:55 pm

The skies are clearing across central Indiana and temperatures will drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s by early Friday morning.  As the atmosphere cools, the low level moisture will condense and patchy fog will form Friday morning.  The fog will lift and there will be some sunshine on Friday afternoon, with highs in the 70s.

Saturday will also be mostly sunny and warm, with highs in the 70s.  The weekend will end with rain and storm chances on Sunday.  Here is an early look at the timing.  We will continue to fine tune the timing for Sunday rain chances, as we get closer to the weekend.  Be prepared for Saturday to be your dry day.

Timing Rain and Storm Chances

After a dry couple of days, our weather pattern is changing.  Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms arrive late Wednesday evening.  Our weather pattern will remain unsettled with scattered showers and storms through Thursday night.   Here is the timeline for rain and storms with FutureTrak13.

RPM RPM1 RPM2

Despite the chance for rain a few storms on Thursday, it will be mild day, with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

We are tracking a couple of days in the lower 70s.  These are in the forecast for Friday and Saturday.  Both days will be dry.

We have been analyzing closely the weekend and trying to track a tricky upper level weather system.  We have made a change to Sunday, as it appears the system will get here for the end of the weekend.  That change will include rain chances on Sunday.  We will keep you updated on the timing, just in case you have outdoor plans for Sunday.  The chance for rain will linger into Monday and cooler air is back for next week, with highs in the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Dry For Now

Posted By · April 13, 2015 at 10:47 pm
The rain has ended for now and we are forecasting a couple of dry days, before rain returns later this week.  There will be lingering clouds and slightly cooler air overnight.  Temperatures will be in the range of 45-50 degrees by early Tuesday.
lows planner highs
Tuesday will be dry, but temperatures will be tricky.  Where we get some sun, temperatures will be in the middle and upper 60s.  Where we stay cloudy, temperatures will only be in the lower 60s.  Right now the best chance for some sun will be across the northern half of Indiana.  The forecast high temperature map reflects that chance for sun, with higher numbers.  There will be a mix of sun and clouds on Wednesday, with highs in the range of 65-70 degrees.

Wednesday will be dry.  The rain might arrive as early as Wednesday night, but right now we are timing the best chances for rain and storms for Thursday and Friday.

With clear skies and less wind, it will be a cooler night.  Temperatures by early Wednesday morning will be in middle and upper 30s.  There is more sunshine in the Wednesday forecast, with highs 65-70 degrees.  Enjoy the dry weather Wednesday because rain and storms return on Thursday.

PLANNER

There will be some dry hours on Thursday, with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.  We are timing the heaviest rain for Thursday evening through Friday morning.  There will be some updates to the timing of the best chance for rain later this week.

7AM RPM RPM1 RPM2

RPM3 RPM4 RPM5 RPM6

We are concerned with the threat for heavy rain.  Rainfall potential is 1-2 inches with some locally 3″ totals possible.  Gusty winds and hail will be possible with a few of the stronger storms.

RAIN

Rain chances will linger into Friday, as temperatures fall through the 40s by the afternoon.  The rest of the weekend will be mainly dry.  Highs will be in the 50s on Saturday and near 60 on Sunday.  Right now there is just a slight chance for a stray shower across northern Indiana on Sunday.
