Timing Weekend Rain Chances

Posted By · August 15, 2014 at 4:14 pm

The Friday night forecast is dry, with increasing clouds.  Due to the clouds arriving, it won’t be nearly as cool overnight.  Forecast lows are in the range of 55-60 degrees.

The clouds are associated with a developing weather system that will bring rain chances to the central Indiana this weekend.  There will be some dry hours, so the best advice before outdoor plans is to check Live Doppler 13 Radar.  Remember you can check this on the go by downloading the SkyTrak 13 Weather app.

event HIGHS

With more clouds than sun in the Saturday forecast, highs will be near 80 degrees.  We are forecasting the main line of rain to fall apart as it gets closer to central Indiana between 7am and noon on Saturday.  A stray shower or storm is possible on Saturday, but the better chance for scattered storms is in the Sunday forecast.  Highs will be in the lower 80s on Sunday afternoon.

Here is a detailed look with FutureTrak13 timing the rain chances this weekend.

Friday Forecast and Weekend Rain Chances

Posted By · August 14, 2014 at 4:13 pm

The coolest morning of the week is on the way for Friday morning, with lows in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

The weak weather system that triggered a few showers north of Indianapolis later Thursday is moving across the southern half of the state now.  A couple of showers will be possible this evening south of Indianapolis.  This weather system has a reinforcing shot of cooler air behind it.

After the cool start to Friday, expect a mix of sun and clouds.  High temperatures will again be in the range of 75-80 degrees and again about 5-10 degrees cooler than average.

LOWS event HIGHS

If you are ready for it to feel more like August, you get your wish this weekend.  Highs will warm back into the lower and middle 80s.  Higher heat and humidity are in the forecast for the weekend and early next week.

Along with the higher heat and huimidity, our weather pattern will become a bit unsettled.  This means there will be the chance for a few showers and storms this weekend and early next week.

We are still analyzing all of the latest data.  Right now, the better chance for rain is on Sunday but a stray storm can’t be ruled out on Saturday.  Stay with the SkyTrak13 Weather Team for the latest on the timing of weekend rain chances.  Here is the latest timing with Futuretrak13.  It confirms that the weekend won’t be a wash-out, but we will need to watch the radar as we make outdoor plans.  There will be updates on the timing and we will bring them to you.

A Few Showers

Posted By · August 13, 2014 at 10:27 pm

A weak disturbance in the atmosphere is triggering a few showers Wednesday night north and east of Indianapolis.  With the cooler air in place across central Indiana, it isn’t taking much to squeeze out a few showers.  This disturbance will move south of Indianapolis on Thursday.  Most of our area will be dry, with a mix of sun and clouds and highs 75-80 degrees.  There will be just a couple of showers possible on Thursday especially south of Indianapolis.  Here is the timeline with Futuretrak13.
