Ready For Some Sunshine

Posted By · October 15, 2014 at 4:13 pm
If you are ready for some sunshine, you won’t have to wait too much longer.  There will still be several bands of light rain and drizzle Wednesday evening.  This is the back edge of a storm system that we have been tracking since late Sunday night.  These bands are moving NE.  This rain will continue to fall this evening, but a drier weather pattern arrives for the end of the week and the weekend.
RPM rpm2
Temperatures overnight are forecast in the upper 40s and lower 50s.  Thursday will start with clouds and drizzle, but end with some sun.  Sunshine is in the Friday forecast, with highs near 70 degrees.

A weather system will move our way from the Great Lakes later Friday into early Saturday.  This will bring clouds and the slight chance for a stray shower on Saturday.  The bigger impact from this system will be a round of cooler air.  highs on Saturday and Sunday will only be in the 50s.  Some patchy frost will be possible on Sunday morning, with morning temperatures in the 30s.  The average high is near 65 degrees, but we will be cooler than that over the next 7 days expect for Friday.

Heavy Rain Overnight and More Storms Possible on Tuesday

Posted By · October 13, 2014 at 11:47 pm

The SkyTrak13 Weather Team tracked a developing storm system into central Indiana on Monday evening.  That system prompted a tornado watch.  The strongest cell moved over the city of Bedford with winds estimated 40-60mph and there were reports of power lines down.  The threats overnight and into early Tuesday will be heavy rain and the potential for some lowland flooding.  The rain will continue to fall through the Tuesday morning commute.  If you commute to work or school before there is enough daylight, be extra careful.  It will be even more difficult to see how deep the water is and it is always a good idea not to drive over any road that has water over it.

RPM rpm2 rpm3

This weather system will keep our weather pattern unsettled through the middle part of the week.  There will be lingering pockets of heavy rain on Tuesday and the threat for a few stronger cells too.  The main risk for severe weather is to our SW, but we will watch it closely for changes.

rpm4 rpm5 outlook

Temperatures will be in the 60s on Tuesday.  Wednesday will be cloudy and cool, with a few showers.  Highs will only be in the 50s on Wednesday.  A few lingering showers are possible into Thursday, before drier weather arrives for the end of the week and the weekend.

Weekend Forecast

Posted By · October 10, 2014 at 10:06 pm

The steady rain is coming to an end late Friday evening and there will be more dry hours than wet hours this weekend.  The weekend will be a bit cool, with lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s.

rpm3 PLANNER THURSDAY highs

There will be a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday and more clouds are in the Sunday forecast.  A stray shower can’t be ruled out on Sunday, but it won’t rain all day.

Our next big storm system arrives later Sunday night and will linger through at least Tuesday.  There will be storms possible and the threat for heavy rain.

There is a good deal of uncertainty in the extended outlook.  We have the end of next week dry, with highs in the 60s.  That could change in a couple of ways.  If the storm system lingers, so will rain chances and the cooler air.  If the system moves out, it will be dry and mild.  We will keep you updated on any and all updates.  Have a great weekend.

Rain Chances Return Thursday

Posted By · October 8, 2014 at 10:03 pm
We got a break from the wet weather, but it was only a one day break.  Clouds will increase overnight, as the next rain producing weather system moves our way.
RPM rpm2 rpm3
With increasing clouds, temperatures will drop into the upper 40s Wednesday night.  There will be more clouds than sun on Thursday, with highs only in the range of 55-60 degrees.  Scattered showers are possible all day.
PLANNER THURSDAY
This unsettled weather pattern will linger into Friday.  It won’t be a heavy all-day rain either day, but keep the umbrellas handy on Thursday and Friday.  Highs on Friday will again only be in the range of 55-60 degrees.  This is a tricky weather system.  It is tricky due to the uncertainty of the heavy rain band.  Some of the latest analysis keeps that heavier band across the southern half of Indiana.  The position may still fluctuate a bit and the forecast for Friday and Saturday depend on the position of the system.  The farther south…the drier we will be.  We will keep you updated.
 rpm4 rpm5
Right now the weekend forecast includes rain chances too, with highs in the lower 60s on Saturday and in the middle 60s on Sunday.  Right now the better chance for rain will be on Sunday.
Our weather pattern goes from a few showers to stormy, with heavy rain potential early next week.  Monday and Tuesday will be stormy days across central Indiana with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Soggy Now but Sunshine in the Wednesday Forecast

Posted By · October 7, 2014 at 3:01 pm

It will be soggy at times through Tuesday evening.  A few storms may contain heavy rain, lightning and small hail.  The weather pattern will dry out and clear out later Tuesday evening.

With clear skies in the forecast Tuesday night and early Wednesday, you will be able to view the total lunar eclipse.  It will be partial around 4am, with totality 6:24-7:24 Wednesday morning.

It will be a cool start to Wednesday, with morning temperatures in the 40s.  If you like sunshine, Wednesday will be your day and the best day of the next 7.  Expect sunny skies and highs in the range of 65-70 degrees on Wednesday afternoon.

Rain chances return on Thursday and will linger through the weekend.  We are still analyzing the latest data to determine the timing for the rain.  Here is the latest with Futuretrak13.  We have the best chance for steady rain in the forecast for later Thursday, Thursday night and early Friday.

The weather system bringing the rain chances back to central Indiana will stall along the Ohio River this weekend.  This means it will be close enough for clouds and a few showers.  There will be more dry hours on Saturday compared to Sunday.  We will keep you updated on exact timing, as you make weekend plans.  Highs will be in the 60s this weekend.
