The snow and slick conditions are causing some problems in southern Indiana today, but overall, the Indy Metro area totally missed the snow storm that has caused real problems in Kentucky. Look for partly sunny skies this morning but still a very cold day.

We are forecasting near record cold on Friday morning, with lows near 0. The record is -1 in 1978. There will be lots of sun on Friday, with highs around 28 degrees. The outlook, beginning this weekend, will be warmer and our highs will be near 40 degrees this weekend, with a mix of clouds and sun on Saturday and Sunday. Remember daylight saving time begins on Sunday, as we turn our clocks ahead one hour.

Milder is on the way for next week. It will feel like Spring, with highs in the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday. In fact, we are calling for a high of 58 by the middle of the week.

On This Date in Central Indiana Weather History……
1897 : At Indianapolis, the record precipitation amount for the date is set at 3.06 inches.

Winter Storm South

Posted By · March 4, 2015 at 6:06 am

Rain has been falling this morning but as temperatures drop, we will see rain changing to snow especially south of Indy. Look for heavy snow, more than 5 inches falling mainly this afternoon, from Columbus on south to Kentucky. Snow amounts would be an inch or two in the Metro area of Indy, if even that, but the farther south you live. the more snow you will receive. Travel will become dangerous, if not impossible, along the Ohio River tonight into Thursday.

Watch for icy spots around the area as temperatures drop all day. We anticipate another slow commute Thursday morning with lows nearing the single digits.

A quieter weather pattern arrives for the weekend, with highs near 40. Even milder air is on the way for next week.

Milder Now, Snow Later

Posted By · February 25, 2015 at 5:39 am
 

Not quite as cold this morning, but we will see this cold weather stick with us into next week. Our high today reaches the mid 20s.

Look for another chance for snow tonight and Thursday. This system will bring the chance for an inch or 2 of snow to central Indiana. Some of the latest computer models show that there could be some slick spots for the morning rush hour tomorrow.

Look for highs to roll back into the teens by Thursday and Friday. You can expect near record low temperatures on Friday morning. We have -3 in the forecast and the record is -7 in 1963. The record low for Saturday is 2 in 1993 and we are forecasting that one to fall, with forecast lows near -6 degrees.

Highs will reach the mid 30s by Sunday but… you can also expect a bit of snow/wintry mix in the forecast . Looks like March will come in like a cold lamb!

Record Cold Morning Today

Posted By · February 24, 2015 at 6:59 am

What a start to our day. At one point the temperature dropped to -5 in Indianapolis and -15 below in Crawfordsville. As expected, many school districts are starting late today and tonight. For some towns and cities, this is a record cold morning. Take precautions from the cold overnight and early Tuesday.
High temperatures rebound quickly into the mid 20s today. There is a chance for late day snow showers today but we aren’t expecting any accumulation. There is another chance for light snow Wednesday evening into Thursday. Another round of arctic air will follow for the end of the week. Highs on Thursday and Friday will only be in the teens and lows will go below zero again Friday morning.

The weekend looks interesting and….a little warmer. Right now there is a chance for a wintry mix changing to rain on Sunday. The rain will change back to snow on Monday. We will keep you updated on the timing and the type of precipitation, as we get closer to the weekend.

Old Man Winter Won’t Leave

Posted By · February 17, 2015 at 7:11 am

It hasn’t stopped snowing just yet. We could see a line of light snow or flurries in many parts of the area this morning. Still This latest Monday’s snow had a big impact across the southern half of Indiana, with 8 inches of snow in Bedford and a band of 3-5 inches from Bloomington to Columbus.  Most of the Metro area, as predicted had 1-2 inches of snow.

Again, today despite some sun will also be a day with scattered snow showers.  The chance for a few snow showers will linger into Wednesday too.  Any snow accumulations will be minor and around an inch or so, with some of the steadier bursts of snow.

If you are wondering when the cold will cease, the answer is , not yet.  The coldest air arrives tomorrow and Thursday, with highs in the single digits on Wednesday and Thursday.  Morning temperatures will go below zero for Thursday and Friday mornings.

We could see another winter storm for the weekend.  This will bring a chance for snow to central Indiana on Friday and a wintry mix for the start of the weekend.

On This Date in Central Indiana Weather History……
1910 : At Indianapolis, the record snow depth for the date is set at 16 inches.

Old Man Winter Stays

Posted By · February 16, 2015 at 8:53 am

What a day in Southern Indiana! Bedford as of 9 am has already picked up 5 inches of snow and could see up to 7 inches of snow. Look for projected amounts of 1 to 3 inches from the Metro area south and 3 to 5 inches of snow from Bloomington to Columbus.

The cold of winter isn’t over yet. Look for midweek temperatures to drop to 10 degrees for highs both Wednesday and Thursday. The warmest day in the entire 7 day forecast will be Saturday when our high gets up to 34 degrees.

Look for a daily chance for snow showers during the week ahead, but nothing like today.

Cold Start, Better Weekend

Posted By · February 5, 2015 at 7:09 am

The snow is over. Most spots got 1-2 inches with a little more in isolated northern towns. Today, it’s  a cold one with sub zero wind chills. Be prepared for a cold day at the school bus stop this morning. We have a number of school delays.

With the new snow, the colder air and the gusty winds there will be slick roads through the morning commute.  We’re looking for a wamer day tomorrow thanks to a southwest wind with a mix of clouds and sun.

We are forecasting a temperature rebound for Friday and the weekend.  Highs will be in the 30s on Friday and in the upper 30s and lower 40s this weekend.  There is a chance for rain on Sunday.

Better Today, Snow Tomorrow

Posted By · February 3, 2015 at 3:23 am
 

A lot of the snow some of you have on the ground will actually melt later today. Today will be breezy, with a mix of sun and clouds. Again where there is snow on the ground, it will be colder. Look for a high in the mid 30s later this afternoon.

There is a chance for light snow north of Indianapolis later Tuesday into early Wednesday. We are also tracking a better chance for snow for all of central Indiana late Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday morning. Generally, we’re looking for the potential of a couple of inches of snow for most of the area. An Arctic front moves in Thursday, meaning highs will only be around 20 on Thursday, with more single digit lows possible too.

This Date in Central Indiana Weather History……

1995 : A storm system brings widespread 2 to 4 inch snowfall, but Martinsville receives 6 inches.
