Be careful out there! Dense fog advisory in effect until 9 am. Lots of airports reporting less than a quarter of a mile visibility.
Mostly sunny skies are in the Friday forecast, with highs in the 70s. Look for a wonderful night tonight for the Indians game or the Neil Diamond concert at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
The weekend will start warm and dry too. Highs on Saturday will be in the middle and upper 70s, with some sun. This dry start to the weekend is great news for the Race for the Cure Saturday morning. This is at Military Park in downtown Indianapolis and there is still time to register. Temperatures will be in the 50s to start and in the middle 60s by noon on Saturday.
The end of the weekend is a bit more tricky. We are tracking a developing weather system that will bring rain and storm chances back to central Indiana on Sunday.. The chance for rain and storms will last into Monday, with highs on Sunday and Monday in the 60s. The long range temperature trend looks even cooler.
We have had rain and thunderstorms this morning and the ride to work and school will be on wet pavement today. Despite the rain, we’ll warm up to 68 degrees, 4 degrees above average later today. It is however, another example of an above average high temperature in what has proven to be a mild month so far.
Look for two more days with highs in the lower 70s. These are in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. Both days will be dry.
The weekend outlook is a little more uncertain with an upper level weather system. We have made a change to Sunday, because it looks like the system will get here for the end of the weekend. That change will include rain chances on Sunday. The chance for rain will linger into Monday and cooler air is back for next week, with highs in the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Enjoy this fantastic day of weather in Central Indiana today. It is already pleasant out there and later we’re looking for partly sunny skies with highs in the range of 65-70 degrees. It will be breezy too, with winds gusting to 25 miles per hour. Should be a great afternoon at Victory Field as the Indians take on Louisville.
We’ll be watching an unsettled weather pattern for the end of the week. Rain chances return late Wednesday. Scattered showers and storms stay in the forecast for Thursday. Highs on Thursday will again be in the range of 65-70 degrees.
Most of the rain will move out of central Indiana for Friday, but the day will start with low clouds, fog and drizzle. Highs on Friday will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
After an isolated shower Friday, we’ll keep the chance for an isolated shower in Saturday with a better chance for rain and thunderstorms Sunday.
The faucet has been turned off but the clouds are still around this morning. The forecast is dry, but mostly cloudy. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s this afternoon. The Pacers play Washington in a must win game, but no pressure from the weather on you arriving dry. No rain will be around this evening.
We have Tuesday and most of Wednesday dry, before rain chances return. The best chance for rain and a few storms will be on Thursday and Friday. High temperatures Wednesday through the weekend will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.
We are starting out dry, but expect some scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and early this evening. Though severe weather isn’t anticipated, there could be some quick, heavy downpours of rain. Any storm is also capable of frequent lightning and gusty wind.
Looks like we will get the Indianapolis Indians game in this evening.
The passage of the front Monday evening pushes most of the rain out of the state by Tuesday 12am. However clouds may linger Tuesday morning before the sky become mostly sunny by Tuesday afternoon. Much of Wednesday looks nice before storm chances increase again heading into Thursday morning.
The early call for next weekend is quiet, mostly bright conditions again! This would time out nicely with The Race For The Cure Saturday morning.
It will also be a windy day, with sustained winds from 15 to 25 mph. Looks like a good night tonight with temperatures in the 50s by the end of the Indianapolis Indians game.
The weekend will be fantastic with sunny and dry conditions. Saturday morning will be cool with temperatures falling into the upper 30s. It will still be breezy overnight, with winds still sustained at 10 to 20 mph. look for a pleasant April evening for the Indy Eleven home opener.
The wind will die down Saturday afternoon with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 60s.Sunday will be even better with increasing clouds and highs near 70 degrees. There is a chance of a few showers Sunday night into Monday morning. Another active week of shower and thunderstorm activity is likely next week.
It is a little wet and foggy in spots this morning.Still, we may see some sunshine today and on a very humid April day, the high will warm into the mid 70s. Look for rain tonight if you are headed to the Indy Fuel game, the last regular season home game for them.
Look for storms to move into Indiana late tonight into Thursday morning. Tomorrow will be really wet with several periods of rain and storms along with a risk of severe weather. Exact There is a chance that the cloud and rain in the morning could limit our chance for severe weather later in the day, but we’re still watching that situation.
At the very least we’re staring down very heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty storms. “If” moderate instability materializes a higher damaging wind threat will be present and even a potential for embedded tornadoes. We are hoping this doesn’t affect the Indians home opener but it certainly could.
The NCAA Championship is over in downtown Indy, but rain has moved in now that many fans are leaving town. Look for a damp morning rush hour. Showers started in the area earlier this morning.
Much of the rain will ease up by 5pm as an upper disturbance departs the state, but there will remain a few showers & storms late day that could pack a punch too. A new round of heavy rain and thunderstorms will move back in again later tonight. Much like today… it appears the most widespread rain/storm coverage will be early Wednesday. Wednesday may prove to be mainly dry and quite warm in the mid to upper 70s.
Though Central Indiana is not technically highlighted in a “Slight Risk” or higher category… we believe there will be enough instability at times that warrants your attention to remain weather.
At this time it appears Thursday will provide the highest rain and storm chances, along with severe weather potential Thursday night into Friday morning. Sadly, that is the opening day for the Indians at beautiful Victory Field.
Look for dry weather for the weekend.
