Turn Off The A/C!

Posted By · August 25, 2015 at 3:28 am

No question about it, this is a little taste of autumn in summer. Monday was sunny with a high of 76 degrees. Today, our high only tops out at 73 degrees with cool temperatures now, kids wearing jackets at the bus stop and dry weather for the morning rush hour.

The chances for rain the next few days are low as well. In fact, one of our computer models suggests no more than a quarter of an inch of rain total for the next week.

The trend of lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s will last through Friday.

Warmer air returns for the weekend. Highs will be in the 80s on Saturday and Sunday. Right now there is a chance for rain, but we will keep you updated.

Great Week Ahead

Posted By · August 24, 2015 at 4:51 am

The calendar says August but it feels like September in Indiana this morning. The cold front has passed and it is a cool breezy day in Indiana. The pattern changes too. Every day during the work week, it will be dry with highs below average.

Monday will be bright become breezy during the afternoon with gusts possibly nearing 25mph.  Expect cooler than normal highs in the 75 to 78 degree range with a good deal of blue sky.  Low temperatures will be even cooler Tuesday morning as many areas with from Indy’s urban heat island likely dropping into the 40s.

We aren’t looking for any major change in the weather until this weekend when we could see thunderstorms.

Big Relief

Posted By · August 11, 2015 at 3:23 am

Have you been outside yet this morning? It is cooler and slowly, humidity is slowly falling. This day’s main feature will be a steady north-northwesterly wind that delivers less humid and highs mainly in the upper 70s.  There may be a few sprinkles or quick-moving isolated showers late day and early evening… but you’ll probably be able to mow your yard later today.Daypart

Breezy conditions can be expected at the Indiana State Fair and Victory Field Tuesday evening as the Indianapolis Indians return home. look for a mild northwest wind tonight for the Big Rodeo at the Fair and the MudHens visit to the Vic.

We’ll be fully entrenched in late spring/early fall -like air by Wednesday afternoon… and the stage is set for the great weather both Wednesday and Thursday.  Lows both days drop into the 50s with highs 75 to near 80 and ample sunshine!  It will be a great time to spend outside.

Muggy Monday

Posted By · August 10, 2015 at 3:23 am

Welcome to another muggy Monday. It is warm, sticky and scattered thunderstorms have already popped up today. Expect a shower or thunderstorm at any time during the day. How humid will it be? Dew points remain in the tropical range around Indiana today.

Daypartcolts

That all changes tomorrow as a cold front moves into the state with a refreshing change in the weather.  Expect lows in the 50s Wednesday and highs in the 70s!  Low temperatures Thursday morning may drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s followed by a bright, mild afternoon near 80 degrees.  Dry weather looks to hold into next weekend but temperatures warm back into the mid and possibly upper 80s Saturday & Sunday.  If you are headed to Colts camp, or the State Fair, mid-week looks like the best time to go, weather wise.

State Fair Weekend

Posted By · August 7, 2015 at 8:13 am

What a morning! Crisp, cool and dry with a pleasant northeast wind and a nice day await all of us.

statefaircolts

Lows this morning dropped into the 50s and light jacket may be needed for the kids at the bus stop in the morning.  It’s a fantastic beginning to the Indiana State Fair with low humidity, sunshine and warm highs in the lower 80s!  You’ll need sunglasses, sunscreen and a lemon shakeup at the fair this afternoon. The Tim McGraw concert weather tonight will be fantastic with temps in the 70s.

Saturday looks great too with partly cloudy and warm conditions as highs jump into the mid-80s.  Storm chances return Sunday with scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Beautiful Day

It is another beautiful morning in Indiana and we can look for a great day with the humidity still lower than the oppressive mess we experienced last week. Don’t rule out an isolated shower but most areas stay dry and the high tops out around 83 degrees.

The most recent computer guidance keeps most showers in Southern Indiana for today, tonight and tomorrow. it’s still possible that a thunderstorm or two could creep into the Metro area.

High temperatures on Thursday will be in the mid to upper 70s. Keep in mind that the average high temperature for this time of year is 84 degrees.

We’ll warm back up to near average conditions for the weekend with high temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Drier conditions arrive back in the forecast by Friday, just in time to start the Indiana State Fair.

Mild Pattern

Posted By · August 4, 2015 at 3:31 am

It’s a very pleasant start to a Tuesday morning. Clear and cool condtions right now but that will change.  Sunshine quickly warms temperatures to near 80 by midday and into the mid-80s during the afternoon.  Humidity remains pretty low for this time of year.

There’s a chance of a few showers or storms Wednesday afternoon but we’re targeting Thursday for a bigger system and higher probability of rain and storms.  But it should be noted there is not a lot of model certainty on timing, track and rain amounts yet.  If you are headed to Anderson University for colts camp this week, overall most days will be good to watch the guys prepare for the fall NFL season.

In the wake of this system another round of comfortable air arrives just in the time for the weekend.  At this point we’re forecasting upper 70s for highs Saturday and Sunday.

More Like It!

Can you feel the difference out there this morning? It is still warm but a little less humid. With the wind out of the northwest, the temps will hold in the mid 80s this afternoon and the humidity won’t be as high. Our tradeoff will be an increase in grasses and nettle floating around so our pollen index will be higher the next few days.

Tonight, Kelly Clarkson and Pentatonix will perform at Klipsch Music Center and the weather should be marvelous. The next few days, only look for an isolated shower, as we are now entering a really dry pattern.  This milder trend will last through the weekend too.
