We have a really good weekend ahead with some pleasant weather ahead. There will still be the chance for a few spotty showers today although at around 3 this morning heavy rain fell on the southside of Indy. 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 today
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. Look for fantastic weather for the Rolling Stones concert and for fireworks celebrations around the area.
This dry pattern is forecast to last through Monday. Rain and storms return for Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
Most of the rain this morning has been around and south of I-70. That trend will continue today. The haze we have seen the past few days comes our way because of wildfires in northwestern Alberta, Canada.
Most of the storms moving from Illinois into Indiana have been moving to the east southeast. We’ll be watching Doppler 13 radar for the rest of the day.
After this system departs to the east by early afternoon today, 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.
Look for highs to warm into the mid 80s by Monday of next week.
Coming off of the 7th wettest June in Indiana history, things are more quiet this morning. A nice northwest wind has made the morning rush hour dry. The Indians play this afternoon and overall, it should be a great day to watch the Tribe play.
We aren’t ruling out rain and thunderstorms today, but mainly for the southern and southwestern viewing area. The latest storm track moves a bit further north so we will include a chance for rain and thunderstorms today, mainly south of I-70.
After a mainly dry Thursday, we will look for mainly dry weather Friday into Sunday afternoon. We’re going to keep isolated afternoon storm chances for the 4th of July and Sunday… but also reiterate that much of the region and most of the day will be dry and warm.
We have been watching some rain and thunderstorms move into Indiana on Live Doppler 13 this morning. Look for more rain late morning, intensifying in the afternoon, and moving out toward sunset. It looks like the Indianapolis Indians have a pretty good night, all in all , for baseball against the Columbus Clippers at Victory Field.
Those storms will push south toward the Ohio River Wednesday and Thursday… allowing for mostly dry conditions both day and highs near 80.A renewed surge of scattered storms arrive during the Friday as the boundary buckles back northward into the state along with a upper disturbance. Right now, it looks like we will have more dry weather than wet weather over the weekend but keep checking with us as we head into the big 4th weekend.By the way, yesterdays rain kicks out monthly total up to 8.36″ which is good for the 7th wettest June on record… and wettest June in 5 years.
CENTRAL INDIANA WEATHER HISTORY
1877: Waverly, Franklin, and St. Paul…a tornado struck killing 10. The tornado picked up a school near Waverly and moved it 50 yards down a hill and carried another school across a field scattering its furniture for half a mile.
Storms are moving into Indiana this morning. For areas south of Kokomo and Marion there is a slight risk of severe weather. Computer guidance looks like we could see a half inch to in some spots up to 2 inches of rain today. Lots of rain and thunderstorms for the drive to work so make sure you leave a little early and pack along some patience.
After 11 am, most of the rain and thunderstorm activity will be spotty. We really want the cloud cover to hang around because that would lessen the chances of more storms deveoping. We could see more spotty thunderstorms Friday.
Saturday could be a day with a thunderstorm or two as another system moves into the Ohio Valley but Sunday should be great with sunshine and highs in the 70s
A fantastic day is here! Temperatures and dew points are low this morning and it is a beautiful day, probably the best day of the week.
Look for sunny skies most of the day. Cloud debris from upstream storms will spill into the state as the day wears on, and some late day showers or storms are possible near the Illinois/Indiana border.
Later tonight, areas from Indianapolis north and west will be under a risk of severe weather. At this time it appears a severe storm complex will develop near Iowa and intensify as it marches eastward.
A cooler than normal pattern will move in to Indiana late week and into the weekend. After morning storms Friday we anticipate mainly dry conditions until early next week.
The weather pattern has settled down now that a cold front is moving through Indiana. Heavy rain dotted parts of Northwest Indiana earlier this morning, but for the most part, it has been dry in the Metro area.
Today, winds out of the northwest put a cap on our temperatures so our highs today and for the rest of the week will slowly go down. By the weekend our highs will top out in the 70s and today and tomorrow will be mainly dry. Look for another chance for storms both Thursday and Friday.
The weekend will provide us with a chance for rain and thunderstorms Saturday but Sunday and Monday will be dry and nice. The jet stream next week keeps us very mild.
We begin another work week that weather wise, looks a lot like last week. With scattered thunderstorms today, there is a risk of strong to severe thunderstorms once again.This time, the best threat will be north of I-70, during afternoon into the evening. Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s. In fact, these warm temperatures stay with us most of the week.
Daily chances of thunderstorms will continue through the week with temperatures running well above average. The humidity sticks around too.
Cooler and less humid conditions arrive next weekend. If you can hang in there highs will be in the mid 70s by Sunday.
THIS DAY IN CENTRAL INDIANA WEATHER HISTORY
