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.

Milder Air is Here

Posted By · July 9, 2014 at 4:18 pm
Milder weather has arrived and it will last for the next couple of days.
Highs Wednesday were in the upper 70s and lower 80s.  Once the sun sets, it will turn cooler.  Forecast lows are forecast in the range of 55-60 degrees.  Skies will be clear overnight and there is sunshine in the Thursday forecast.
LOWS PLANNER HIGHS
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.

Sunday will be warmer and a bit more humid. There is also the slight chance for a stray shower or thundershower. You can see a weakening weather system moving our way with Futuretrak13.

The better rain chances arrive early next week, as we track an unsettled weather pattern Monday through Wednesday. We will update the timing of the waves of rain and storms, as we get closer. Highs will be in the 80s and lows in the 60s for much of next week. This is typical for early July, as our average high is 85 and our average low is 66.

Tuesday Tornado Touchdown and More Rain Chances

Posted By · June 24, 2014 at 9:12 pm

From the early survey of the damage just NE of Plainfield, the National Weather Service is reporting an EF-1 tornado touched down Tuesday afternoon.  An EF-1 tornado has winds estimated 86 to 109 mph.  There are additional areas that the NWS will survey either Tuesday night or Wednesday, as damage was reported along the Hendricks/Marion county line and in Speedway.

The threat for severe weather is over, but lowland flooding is still an issue Tuesday night due to heavy rain.  Watch for patchy fog overnight, with lows in the middle and upper 60s.  Forecast highs are in the lower and middle 80s on Wednesdy and Thursday.  Right now there are only slight rain chances Wednesday afternoon.  It will not be as widespread or as heavy as the last couple of days.  We will get a few days to dry out.

PLANNER RPM RPM2

Heat and humidity will be the focus for the end of the week and the weekend.  We are forecasting highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s Friday through Sunday.  There are only slight rain/storm chances each day.  There will be plenty of dry weather for your outdoor activities through the weekend.
