Rain On The Way

Posted By · November 16, 2015 at 3:24 am

We start this Monday off dry but later in the day, we will see clouds roll in with some scattered showers during the evening rush hour. There will be a few more showers during the evening too.

As we roll into Tuesday, look for more rain. We’ll have periods of showers and thunder from Tuesday morning to Wednesday night. Some of our computer models show more than an inch to two inches of rain could fall during that time period.

Look for rain to leave by late Wednesday and that paves the way for cooler air to move into Indiana. It’s too early to tell how cool and how wet it will be Saturday however.

A Little Bit Of Everything

Posted By · November 9, 2015 at 4:10 am
Can you feel the temperatures drop out there? It’s really cold this morning but the sun will make things feel better later this morning. Later clouds increase after midday and we will see some scattered showers.

Tuesday looks good but windy conditions and rain will move in for late Wednesday into Thursday. This will be caused by a very deep area of low pressure that will move across the Great Lakes. The cold front attached to the strong low sweeps over Indiana Wednesday night…. possibly with a narrow line of showers/storms with potentially severe wind gusts.

The gusts will likely be strong in the 35-50mph range. Look for peak winds Wednesday night, Thursday and Thursday night. for strongest gust potential. latest.

Behind the front we’re in store for a couple of days with highs in the 40s Friday and Saturday along with breezy conditions. But next weekend looks dry and feeling like fall.

Few More Hours Of Warmth!

Posted By · November 5, 2015 at 3:25 am

Despite changes on the way our streak of 70 degree days moves to 4 in a row today with a high of 73 later.  That’s where it will end, as we track some weather pattern changes for the end of the week and the weekend.

Clouds will increase today as a front moves closer to Indiana. This afternoon will be warm, with highs in the lower and middle 70s.  Clouds will be on the increase and we could see an isolated shower this afternoon.

The later we get in the evening the more likely rain moves in with the main line of rain and a few storms arriving early Friday morning.  Look for a wet morning rush hour Friday. We are timing the steadiest rain and a few gusty thunderstorms from midnight until 9 am Friday.

Cooler air arrives for the weekend.  Lows will be in the 30s and highs will be in the 50s. Conditions will be dry as people head into Lucas Oil Stadium for the Colts-Broncos game Sunday.

A Mighty Nice Day

Posted By · November 4, 2015 at 3:35 am

Today is day 3 of 70 degree warmth this week and we will add 1 more before our fantastic November heat wave cools down. There is fog in many parts of the area this morning so it will be a low beam morning as many of you head to work or school.


There will be some sun today, with highs in the lower and middle 70s. It will be a great night to come downtown to catch the Pacers game against Boston this evening. Thursday will be our fourth day in a row in the 70s, but changes arrive Thursday night.

Rain is in the forecast Thursday night through early Friday.  The rain and a few storms will develop along and ahead of a cold front.  Central Indiana will be behind the cold front this weekend, as highs fall back into the 50s for Saturday and Sunday.  Temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s for the Monumental Marathon.

Welcome to Election Day! In Indianapolis, the mayoral race has drawn the most attention and if you choose to vote, the weather totally cooperates! Look for temperatures to be up in the mid 70’s, a couple of degrees below average.We will end up with four 70 degree days in a row this week.  It started Monday.


We are forecasting near record warmth today through Thursday.  Right now we have 75 for Tuesday, 76 for Wednesday and 75 for Thursday.

Our weather pattern changes Thursday night, when a cold front gets closer.  This system will bring rain and a few storms to central Indiana Thursday night through early Friday.  Cooler air returns too.  Highs will be in the 50s by the weekend.

Rain For Halloween

Posted By · October 30, 2015 at 3:27 am

So long rain, at least for a day and hello sunshine and cool air. The average high this time of year is 60 degrees and we will get close to that later this afternoon with not nearly the wind strength that we have experienced the past few days.


Expect a mix of clouds and sun today, with highs in the range of 55-60 degrees.  It will be dry and cool for high school football.  Temperatures will be in the lower 50s for Operation Football this evening. The Indy Fuel also take on Fort Wayne tonight.


Unfortunately there is still rain in the Saturday forecast , so  prepare your trick-or-treaters for rain Saturday evening.  It will be cool too, with temperatures in the lower 50s.


The weekend will end with some sun and milder air on the way.  Highs rebound into the lower 60s on Sunday.

It will really warm up next week and we could see highs close to all time records!

Wind Of Change!

Posted By · October 29, 2015 at 3:28 am

Hang on to your hat! Winds are going to gust in excess of 30 miles per hour. As a result, the highs will barely creep into the 50s today. It should be mainly dry today. If you are headed downtown to the Pacers game, look for dry but cool and windy conditions.


Friday will be mainly sunny, with highs in the middle and upper 50s.

It looks like Halloween could be a little wet, with afternoon temperatures in the 50s.  Temperatures will fall into the 40s for our trick-or-treaters.  Right now most of the rain would be in the morning but we cannot rule out evening showers.

Remember… Daylight Saving Time ends this weekend.  Turn your clocks back 1 hour when you go to bed Saturday night.  As our Sean Ash has mentioned on the air on WTHR, it is also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

Looking for much warmer air for next week, with 60s and 70s possible.

Wet And Windy

Posted By · October 28, 2015 at 3:27 am

What a morning…wet roads, falling rain and winds gusting to 30 mph. In some spots, a half inch of additional rain has fallen since midnight.

We will see the rain taper off this afternoon, but a strong cold front keeps it windy tonight and tomorrow. Because of that, it will be a struggle to break out of the 40s by tomorrow afternoon. Friday is the next best day before the weekend.  Unfortunately showers are part of the forecast for Halloween Saturday… it might not rain everywhere, but make a plan. Remember that Daylight Saving Time ends this Sunday at 2am when we move clocks back one hour.

Long range indicators all point toward an unseasonably warm start to November and highs a week from now may be well in the 70s.
