The weather pattern will change just in time for the 4th of July. There will still be some lingering rain through Friday evening especially south of Indianapolis. A gradual clearing trend will arrive overnight, with lows in the lower and middle 60s.
A few clouds will linger across the southern half of the state through early Saturday, but mostly sunny skies are in the forecast for Saturday afternoon. Highs will be in the lower 80s.
We are expecting mainly clear skies for fireworks and the Rolling Stones concert Saturday evening. Sunset is at 9:16, with temperatures in the lower and middle 70s through midnight.
The Sunday forecast includes a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will be in the lower and middle 80s on Sunday and in the middle 80s on Monday. The dry pattern will last through Monday.
Rain and storms return on Tuesday and the weather pattern stays a bit unsettled Wednesday through Friday. This will mean more clouds and more rain chances.
Have a happy and safe holiday weekend.
The holiday weekend is quickly approaching and so is a change to our wet weather pattern. There will still be the chance for a few spotty showers Thursday night and Friday. We are only expecting a few showers to pop-up. Most of your outdoor plans are a go for Friday. Highs will be near 80 degrees on Friday.
A drier weather pattern arrives just in time for the Fourth of July. We are forecasting a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday and Sunday, with highs in the lower and middle 80s. Temperatures will be in the 70s with partly cloudy skies for the fireworks Saturday night.
This dry pattern is forecast to last through Monday. Rain and storms return for Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
As expected spotty showers have popped up near and mainly south of I-70… however much of the viewing area doesn’t see a drop of rain today. A blanket of haze continues to cover the sky over Central Indiana and is courtesy of a concentration of wildfires in northwestern Alberta, Canada. The haze is responsible of the reddish tint to the moon at night and dimming sunshine during the day.
We’ll need to monitor the progress of an expected storm complex later this evening that likely develops in northern Missouri. The upper level flow pushes this feature to the southeast with potential impacts on southern Indiana. It remains to be seen how far north its precipitation shield will make it… but we can’t completely rule out a round of steady rain for the Indy metro area overnight. However, it’s more likely cities like Bloomington, Columbus, Seymour and Bedford will be get a good soaking tonight into Thursday morning.
After this system departs to the east by early afternoon tomorrow we’ll be fairly dry area wide heading into the holiday weekend. The hazy sky lingers but we’ll be able to enjoy plenty of dry time and all systems are a go at this point for the Rolling Stones concert at IMS Saturday and fireworks in downtown Indy.
Heavy rain will continue to fall across the southern half of Indiana Friday night. We are forecasting an end to the steady rain Saturday morning.
The back of edge of this weather system will be close enough to central Indiana for a few showers on Saturday. The best chance for those spotty rain chances will be across the eastern and southeastern sections of the state. A drier weather pattern arrives, with some clearing late in the day Saturday. This won’t last long. There will be a complex of storms moving across Illinois Saturday night. If that complex holds together, there will be a few showers or storms late Saturday night or early Sunday morning. We are still forecasting more dry weather than wet weather on Father’s Day, with highs 85-90 degrees.
What is left of that round of storms will be a boundary in the atmosphere and that will be the trigger for a few scattered storms on Sunday afternoon. Right now we are under a slight risk for severe weather, but the latest analysis has that boundary south of central Indiana. It is something we will watch closely.
The Friday night forecast includes more rain chances. Due to heavy rain from once Tropical Storm Bill, flooding continues to be an issue for central Indiana. The ground is saturated and there is standing water. Creeks, streams and rivers are also running high. Take precautions and travel with care because high water will be a concern through the start of the weekend.
The steadier rain will end late Friday night or early Saturday morning. We are expecting a slow clearing trend by late in the day Saturday, with highs in the lower and middle 80s. A developing weather system is forecast to bring storms to Illinois later Saturday and that system will be close enough to central Indiana for a storm or 2 on Father’s Day. There is a slight risk for severe weather for the end of the weekend. We are still forecasting more dry weather than wet weather this weekend.
The weather pattern remains warm, humid and at times unsettled through next week. We will be tracking several complexes of storms. Right now we are timing one for late Sunday night into Monday. Scattered storms are possible on Tuesday too. We then have heat in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday, with highs near 90. A new complex of storms is forecast for later Thursday.
These complexes of storms will be difficult to time until they actually develop. We will keep you updated on the timing to help you make plans for next week.
It’s been a rainy start to this Friday. Since midnight, we have had rainfall totals reaching nearly 2″, if not more, throughout portions of central and southern Indiana. Currently, there is a Flood Warning for southwestern central Indiana until 2PM this afternoon and there is a Flash Flood Watch that is in effect through tomorrow night, as more rounds of heavy rain are expected later today and tonight.
Scattered Storms will remain in the area throughout the rest of the afternoon and evening. The heaviest showers will be mainly concentrated in the central/southern regions of Indiana. However, the northern counties can also expect some pop-up storms as we head into the afternoon. Temperatures will remain pretty mild this afternoon with highs in the upper 70s.
We warm up for the weekend, but are also tracking more rain chances and also the possibility for more severe weather. Saturday will start out wet but showers will begin to ease and dry out by the afternoon. Hopefully, this will give you all the chance to enjoy some time outdoors for this Father’s Day weekend.
Sunday highs will reach the mid to upper 80s with a chance for showers and storms in the late afternoon and evening. Some could be severe, we’ll keep our eyes on that and the exact timing.
The 7 day is not a washout, however, we have almost a daily chance of showers and storms.
Our overall weather pattern remains unsettled through the start of the weekend. Scattered storms with heavy rain are possible Friday through Saturday morning, as some of the moisture from once Tropical Storm Bill arrives in central Indiana.
The latest timing has the heaviest rain moving out of central Indiana early Saturday. This would mean a dry Saturday afternoon.
We are forecasting highs in the 80s on Saturday and near 90 on Sunday. There is a chance for a pop-up shower or storm on Sunday, be we are forecasting more dry weather than wet weather for Father’s Day.
Most of Monday will be dry, with highs near 90 degrees. Storm chances return later in day Monday and Monday night. Another round of storms is possible later Tuesday night into early Wednesday. There will be some adjustments to the timing, so stay tuned for updates. Be prepared for heat too. Highs will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s much of next week.
Thursday afternoon heating triggered widespread rain and storms. There were a few reports of hail and damaging winds. There were lots of reports of heavy rain. The heavy rain and storms have shifted to the southern half of Indiana. We are starting to see some of the tropical moisture from once Tropical Storm Bill move our way. This moisture will keep steady rain in the forecast especially for the southern half of the state through Friday night. Here is a look at the latest timeline for steady rain with FutureTrak13 overnight and early Friday. We do expect the rain to continue through Friday night. Right now it looks like most of the rain will end late Friday night or early Saturday morning. This will mean some dry hours on Saturday. Highs will be in the lower 80s on Saturday and near 90 for Father’s Day on Sunday. There is a slight chance for a stray shower or storm on Sunday, but right now we are forecasting more dry hours than wet.
