Back to March Temperature Reality

Posted By · March 16, 2015 at 10:31 pm

The high temperature on Monday afternoon was 74 degrees in Indianapolis and 22 degrees above average and only 5 away from the record of 79 in 1945.  A cold front will put an end to this warm air.  The front is scheduled to arrive around sunrise Tuesday.  Winds will change direction behind the front and that north wind will be brisk at times 15-25mph.  Temperatures will be in the range of 45-50 degrees and won’t change much from start to finish on Tuesday.  That north wind will be make it feel like the 30s.  This is something to remember if you have St. Patrick’s Day plans.  Dress warmly for the parade and festival in downtown Indianapolis.

After some clouds early Tuesday, there will be some afternoon sunshine.  Tuesday and Wednesday will be dry, with rain chances returning on Thursday.

From Patchy Fog to 60s and Friday Rain

Posted By · March 11, 2015 at 10:15 pm
A dense fog advisory has been issued for east central Indiana until Thursday at 10am.  By 10pm Wednesday, visibilities had already dropped to less than a mile in eastern Indiana.

More areas of fog are possible Wednesday night and early Thursday, but we don’t expect it to be as widespread as it was Wednesday morning.  Temperatures will fall into the lower and middle 30s by Thursday morning.  A few slick roads are possible in the areas of thicker fog.  Expect a mix of sun and clouds and highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s on Thursday afternoon.

PLANNER

Another rain-maker arrives Friday and looks to deliver more locally heavy rain.  Latest guidance suggests that areas along and south of I-70 will see any where from a half-inch to an inch or two from Friday morning through Saturday midday.

Despite the wet weather highs will still be in the mid-50s both days and we’ll enjoy a really nice Sunday with plenty of sunshine.  Lows Sunday morning will be near freezing but a quick warm up into the middle 50s is expected.  The warmest day of the current forecast is Monday.  We expect highs well into the 60s and possibly our warmest day since early November.

High temperatures drop by about 20 degrees by Tuesday, with forecast highs in the 40s.

Dangerously Dense Fog

Posted By · March 10, 2015 at 10:25 pm

By 10pm Tuesday, visibilities were near zero across most of central Indiana.  A dense fog advisory is in effect until 10am Wednesday.

ADV vis vis1

The fog will be an issue through the morning drive to work and school.  Allow some extra time for your Wednesday morning travels.  We do expect the fog to lift by early afternoon.  As long as it lifts, temperatures will be in the range of 55-60 degrees.

PLANNER WEDNESDAY

Where we get stuck in the fog, temperatures will be lower.  A milder air mass continues to build across central Indiana through the end of the week.  Highs will again be near 60 degrees, with some sun on Thursday.

Rain chances return Friday through early Saturday.  The weekend won’t be a wash-out, as we have some sun in the forecast for Sunday and highs in the 50s.

Tuesday Rain and Wednesday Warmth

Posted By · March 9, 2015 at 11:03 pm
The SkyTrak13 Weather Team continues to track milder air and rain chances over the next 7 days.  It will be mostly cloudy overnight, with rain chances arriving for the morning commute on Tuesday.  The best chance for light rain on Tuesday will be across the southern half of Indiana.  Keep the umbrellas handy from about Indianapolis south.  Here is the latest timing with FutureTrak13.
RPM RPM1 RPM2

Temperatures with clouds and rain will still be near 50 degrees.

As even warmer air arrives for the middle part of the week, morning fog may be an issue on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.  As long as the fog burns off, highs will be in the range of 55-60 degrees both afternoons.

Rain chances return for the end of the week and the start of the weekend.

Weekend Forecast and a Warm Up on the Way

Posted By · March 6, 2015 at 3:54 pm
There is a big warm-up in the 7 day forecast.  We have 50s on the way for Tuesday through Friday of next week.

It will be a chilly but dry Friday night, with lows in the lower 20s.

PLANNER HIGHS HIGHS2

Expect a mix of clouds and sun this weekend.  A few sprinkles are possible under some of the thicker clouds, but really our next best chance for rain isn’t until next Friday night.

Highs will be near 40 on Saturday and in the lower and middle 40s on Sunday.  Remember Daylight Saving Time begins on Sunday.  You turn the clocks ahead one hour when you go to bed Saturday night.  It is also a great time to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Monday will be dry, with highs in the range of 45-50 degrees.  We have a stretch of 50+ degree weather on the way for much of next week.
