Weekend Forecast

Posted By · October 9, 2015 at 4:31 pm
Your Friday night forecast is cool and breezy.  There were a few showers across central Indiana on Friday, but those will move out just in time for high school football games.  If you are going to a game, take the coat.  Temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s, but it will feel cooler with winds N 10-20mph.

Watch for patchy morning fog on Saturday, with temperatures in the upper 40s.  The weekend will start cool, with highs in the 60s on Saturday.  We do have lots of sunshine in the weekend forecast.  The warmer day will be Sunday with highs in the 70s.


Temperatures will be in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees on Monday, before another cold front arrives.  This front won’t have a lot of moisture, so there is just a slight chance for a late day shower on Monday.

There will be another drop in temperature behind the front.  Highs are expected in the 60s on Tuesday.  70s are back for Wednesday and Thursday, before another temperature drop Friday.

Timing Rain Chances and Cooler Air

Posted By · October 8, 2015 at 3:17 pm

After 5 warm days, our weather pattern is changing.  It will be dry Thursday evening, but rain chances arrive after 9pm.  We are timing the best chance for a few showers and a rumble of thunder from about 11pm to 7am.



We are not forecasting a lot of rain, but Friday will be cooler and breezy with a few showers possible through late afternoon.  Winds are forecast NNW 10-20mph on Friday.  Temperatures will be in the 60s for highs, but it will feel cooler than that with that NNW breeze.


We have Friday night dry and this is good news for Operation Football.  If you are going to a high school football game, take the coat.  It will stay breezy, with temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s.


We have some sunshine in the Saturday forecast, with highs 65-70 degrees.  Sunday will be the warmer day, with highs in the middle 70s.

We will be near 80 on Monday, before another cold front moves our way.  This will bring the chance for a few showers later Monday and a drop in temperature back into the 60s  for Tuesday.

One More Warm Day

Posted By · October 7, 2015 at 4:02 pm

Fog has been an issue each morning this week and it will be an issue again on Thursday.  It will be partly cloudy, with patchy fog developing overnight.  Forecast lows are in the middle 50s.  The fog will lift and we are expecting a mix of clouds and sun on Thursday afternoon with highs in the range of 75-80 degrees.  This will the be last warm day this week, as we track rain chances and a cool down for the end of the week and the start of the weekend.


We have Thursday dry, with rain chances arriving after 9pm Thursday.  Scattered showers are in the forecast for Thursday night and Friday.



This weather system doesn’t have a lot of moisture, so rain amounts will be on the low side.  Clouds and a few showers are in the Friday forecast, but we have Operation Football dry Friday night.  It will be cooler, with temperatures in the 50s by the 4th quarter of the high school football games.

The weekend will start cool, with highs in the 60s on Saturday.  Sunshine and 70s are back for Sunday and 80s are in the forecast for Monday.  There will be a chance for rain later Monday and temperature ups and downs next week.

The average high for early October is in the upper 60s.  We will be about 10 degrees warmer than that through Thursday.  We are forecasting highs in the range of 75-80 degrees.

Our weather pattern changes on Friday, as a developing weather system brings a few showers and thundershowers to central Indiana late Thursday night into Friday.

With clouds and rain chances, it will be cooler on Friday with highs in the 60s.

The weekend starts cool and in the 60s, but Sunday will be sunny and in the 70s.

Milder Changes on the Way

Posted By · October 3, 2015 at 5:41 pm
It is cloudy and cool, with temperatures only in the upper 40s and lower 50s.  There are also a few lingering showers.  There will be a few showers possible through late Saturday night and early Sunday.

There will be a significant change in the weather from Saturday to Sunday across central Indiana.  Temperatures on Saturday were stuck in the upper 40s and lower 50s.  It was cloudy with showers too.  We are forecasting morning clouds and afternoon sunshine on Sunday, with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.  Remember to come say hi, if you are going to the Colts game on Sunday.  We will just across the street from Lucas Oil Stadium collecting coats for Coats For Kids.

What is causing this significant change?  The upper level weather system to our SE that brought us the clouds and rain will push far enough away for some sun and the return of milder air.

This is the beginning of a sunny and 75 degree temperature trend that will last through much of next week.

Weekend Forecast 50s and Rain to Near 70

Posted By · October 2, 2015 at 4:11 pm
It has been a mostly cloudy and windy Friday across central Indiana.  Your Friday night will also be chilly and windy, with a few showers.  We are forecasting an area of light rain to move across central Indiana this evening.  If you are going to a high school football game, take the jacket and the rain gear.

The Saturday forecast is mostly cloudy, windy and chilly with a few more showers.  Highs on Saturday will only be in the middle and upper 50s.  Everyone will have to dodge a few showers on Saturday, but the best chance for a steadier light rain will be across the eastern half of the state.  This area is closer to the upper level weather system that is pulling back moisture our way from the East Coast.  It is a good idea to prepare for 50s and rain chances if you are going to either football game at Ball State or IU.

Speaking of the East Coast, that upper level weather system, a slow moving front and moisture from Hurricane Joaquin will all contribute to a significant flooding threat this weekend.  The Carolinas are forecast to be the hardest hit.

Our weekend will end with a mix of clouds and sun.  Sunday won’t be as chilly, as we forecast highs in the range of 65-70 degrees.  Remember we will be collecting coats and cash donations for Coats For Kids before the Colts game on Sunday.  We hope to see you there.


The forecast for next week is dry and mild, with highs in the 70s.

Weekend Weather Pattern Changes

Posted By · September 25, 2015 at 4:25 pm

Friday was the 4th 80 degree day in a row.  This week has been mainly sunny and warm, but there are changes on the way for the weekend.

Clouds will continue to increase Friday evening, but it will be dry and mild for Operation Football.  Remember to send us your pictures from the high school football games using #OPFB.

The clouds are associated with a developing weather system to our SE.  That system will actually drift NW and bring us clouds and a slight chance for a stray shower Saturday and Sunday.  With more clouds in the forecast, it won’t be as warm.  We are forecasting cloudy and 73 on Saturday and mostly cloudy and 76 on Sunday.

Here is a look at the weather system with FutureTrak13.

This same weather system will bring some clouds to Nashville, Tennessee.  Our Colts take on the Titans on Sunday at 1pm.


80 degree warmth returns for Monday and Tuesday next week.  We are tracking another weather system for Wednesday and Thursday.  This system looks like it will bring us a better chance for rain.  We will keep you updated.

Fall begins at 4:21am on Wednesday, but it will feel more like Summer.

It will be clear and mild Tuesday evening, with temperatures in the 70s through 8pm.  Clear and cool describes early Wednesday, with morning temperatures near 50 degrees.


Our first Fall afternoon will be warm, with highs in the lower 80s.  This 80 degree warmth will last through the weekend.  We are forecasting lots of sunshine too.


Right now there isn’t any significant weather pattern change until the middle part of next week.  This means cool mornings with sunny and warm afternoons.
