Wednesday Night Update

Posted By · June 11, 2014 at 10:31 pm

After an at times rainy and stormy Wednesday, we are timing a weather pattern change.  A few lingering showers will finally end overnight.  It will still be muggy, with lows in the 60s.

PLANNER

There is some sun in the Thursday forecast, with highs in the lower 80s.  A developing cold front will arrive Thursday evening.  This front will bring rain chances back to central Indiana for a few hours Thursday night and early Friday.

RPM2 RPM3

Once the cold front moves out, a milder air mass arrives.  This will mean lower humidity levels for Friday and most of the weekend.

Highs will be in the 70s on Friday, near 80 on Saturday and in the 80s for Father’s Day on Sunday.  Higher heat and humidity return early next week, with scattered storm chances.

Most of Thursday will be dry, with a mix of clouds and sun. Highs will be in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Tornado Reports in Greene County and a Late Evening Update

Posted By · June 10, 2014 at 10:40 pm

Here are the storm reports from Tuesday evening.  They include 2 tornado reports in Greene county near Bloomfield.

HEADLINES

Flooding is the other type of severe weather we are tracking.  Rain totals are near 2.5 inches across parts of Vermillion and Fountain counties.  This is leading to flooding.  There are reports of secondary roads under water in Vermillion county.  Other pockets of heavy rain overnight and on Wednesday may cause more flooding across central Indiana.  Please don’t travel over any road that has water over it.

The heaviest rain will start to lift north overnight, with a few lingering showers early Wednesday.  Rain and storms are in the forecast for Wednesday.

RPM RPM2

Some sun is back in the forecast for Thursday, with just a slight chance for a shower late in the day.  Highs will be in the 80s.  Friday will be sunny and less humid, with highs 75-80 degrees.  Our weather patten will dry out and warm up by the weekend.

Soggy Through Wednesday

Posted By · June 10, 2014 at 4:28 pm

More rain and a few storms are in the forecast for Tuesday night and Wednesday.

No severe weather is expected but heavy rain is possible in any storms that develop. It will be muggy overnight, with lows in the middle 60s.

RPM RPM2

The slow-moving weather system will be stuck over central Indiana through late Wednesday. Similar to Tuesday, there will be a few dry break in between pockets of heavier rain and thunder.  Highs will be in the range of 75-80 degrees on Wednesday.

PLANNER

We still expect this feature to weaken and depart by Thursday morning. This sets up a mostly dry and warm Thursday with highs in the 80s. An approaching cold front will trigger a line of showers and storms in Illinois Thursday afternoon.

It’s too early to determine whether or not this line will hold long enough to impact the viewing area Thursday night. The passage of this front delivers very comfortable conditions for Friday and the start of Father’s Day weekend.

Highs Friday will drop back into the 70s and lows Saturday morning will be very pleasant in the 50s. Heat quickly builds across the Ohio Valley though and Father’s Day highs will soar into the mid and upper 80s with a very slight precipitation chance.

Most of the weekend will be fairly sunny. The hottest air of the year could arrive early next with our first ninety-degree day since September possible.

Lingering Storm Chances

Posted By · May 28, 2014 at 10:15 pm

A few showers and thundershowers will linger overnight.  The boundary in the atmosphere that triggered scattered showers and storms on Wednesday will be close enough for more on Thursday.  It won’t rain all day, but check the radar here at wthr.com or download the WTHR weather app if you are on the go.  The day will start in the middle 60s and we are forecasting highs in the lower 80s.  It will still be a bit humid too.

PLANNER RPM

The boundary moves far enough south for some relief from the higher humidity on Friday.  We are also forecast a dry stretch of weather from Friday through Sunday, with highs in the 80s.  Storm chances return early next week.
