Weather Change Coming

Roads are wet this morning and there is also some scattered areas of fog today . As rain moves out, we’ll see some changes during the day today.

With a warm front settling into northern today, we’re expecting rain/storm coverage to more isolated than the past two days.  This will also allow highs to be much warmer too with a southwest wind boosting temperatures into the 70s.  The exception will be our northern towns like Kokomo and Peru which will be stuck in the low to mid 60s.

Friday remains pleasantly cool and dry  with lots of sunshine. If you need to mow your yard, consider tomorrow, since rain is back in the forecast.  Look for rain to return to Central Indiana during the Saturday-Sunday time period.  A shot of cooler air moves in next week.  Temperatures in the long range outlook remain at or below average for this time of year.

Another mild morning in Central Indiana today. Though clouds will increase, we are still looking for a nice mild day with highs in the mid 70s. The Indians close down the home stand today and it would be a great afternoon to check out Victory Field today.

Rain chances increase late today , with the best chance for a few showers and storms arriving late tonight.  Scattered showers and storms, with highs near 70 are in the Thursday forecast.  Our weather pattern includes rain chances through early Friday morning.

Another GREAT Day!

It’s a beautiful day out there and it appears the warm streak continues. Monday was the second 80 degree day in a row and we have one more on the way for today.  There will be a mix of clouds and sun on Tuesday, with only a slight rain chance and highs near 80 degrees. The Indians have an early 11:05 start time and it will be a beautiful day to take in a game at beautiful Victory Field.

Rain chances will increase tomorrow and Thursday.  It looks like we are in store for a  temperature change too.  Highs will drop back into the lower 70s on Wednesday and into the 60s on Thursday and Friday.  A few morning showers are possible on Friday too.

Fantastic Warm Streak

It’s a beautiful day in our neighborhood today. Sunshine will be with us all day and that, combined with a warm. Yesterday, we topped out at 80 degrees and we will get there again today tying yesterday as the warmest day of the year so far. We will see June like weather the next few days. humidity levels remain low which means the air will be comfortable. Though Tuesday won’t be bright, it will still be warm and temperatures will still climb into the 70s.

The ridge of high pressure that has given us the sunny, warm weather finally breaks down mid-week and an upper level low brings unsettled conditions. By Wednesday, late in the day, scattered showers develop with higher rain chances Thursday.

Look for highs to bounce back into the 70s over the weekend.

Warm Up On The Way

It’s another cold morning but hang in there, we have a wonderful day ahead this afternoon as a slow warming trend kicks off in Central Indiana.

Mostly sunny skies and near 60 degrees are in the forecast for today.  Wash the car, mow the grass because no rain until next week.  Look for tomorrow to be sunny and 64.  The Indianapolis Indians have their home opener at Victory Field Thursday.  The first pitch is at 7:05pm and there is a 60 degree guarantee.  Fans want it to be 59 degrees or cooler.  If it is below 60 degrees, fans will get a free ticket to another game in April.  Right now, we are forecasting 61 degrees for the first pitch.  This 60 degree guarantee will be fun to watch.

Highs will near 70 degrees on Friday.  The weekend will be even warmer, with highs in the lower and middle 70s on Saturday and Sunday.

Race for the Cure is this weekend at Military Park in White River State Park.  You can register from 7-8:30 that morning and the weather is going to be perfect.  The fun begins with opening ceremonies and the survivors pink parade at 7:30.  There is a kids race at 8:30 and a 5k at 9am.

Our next chance for rain doesn’t get here until early next week.

Hang In There, It Will Get Better!

Hang in there! We are off to a very wet start this morning but after things clear out this evening, we’ll have a much better week ahead.  Still, be prepared because there will be widespread rain amounts of 1″ to 2″ and rain likely doesn’t end until tonight. There won’t be much temperature movement today as temperatures stay in the mid 50s during the day.  Colder air returns tomorrow night with lows near freezing Tuesday morning.

Tomorrow begins a streak of sunny days and we’re still on target to reach 70 degrees by the weekend.  We’re expecting highs to be near 60 degrees Thursday for the Indianapolis Indians home opener (though the 1st pitch temp may be below our 60 degree guarantee which means you’ll get a free ticket if you’re in attendance).  The weekend looks spectacular with highs in the low 70s both Saturday and Sunday.

Wet And Windy

Hang on to your hat. A cold front is moving into Indiana and it will arrive with winds in excess of 35 mph and periods of rain.  After starting near 40 degrees this morning expect daytime highs near 60 despite the rain that will be wide spread around the time children are coming home from school. Not expecting severe weather but the winds will be gusty at times.

windDaypart

The passage of the next cold front tomorrow afternoon delivers another string of unseasonably cold days. In fact, temperatures will only top out in the 30s by Saturday.

Another hard freeze looks likely Saturday morning with lows in the 20s. Sunday morning will be another hard freeze and with clouds increasing ensures daytime highs Sunday afternoon struggle to hit 50 degrees.  Another rain-maker arrives Monday with highs in the 60s.

Cold Start, Cold Pattern

**Freeze Warning Until 9 am**

It is cold this morning and temperatures continue to drop. A Freeze Warning continues until 9am and you should protect any plants or flowers you have outside if you want to really make sure they survive. Is this unusual? No. The average last freeze in Indianapolis is April 16th and the latest occurred on May 27, 1961.

Look for lots of sun today with highs near 50 degrees. Temperatures should be fine as we head into the evening for the NCAA Women’s National Championship. Look for a wet and windy day Wednesday.  We’ll then have a series of cold fronts and upper disturbances move through the state between then and the end of the weekend.

High temperatures Friday and Saturday may end up closer to the average low for this time of year… which equates to lower 40s and upper 30s!

Slight Risk Severe Weather

We’ve had rain and thunderstorms all night and this morning we’ll have wet pavement during the course of the day. Look for some areas of rain this morning but as a cold front moves closer to Indiana we’ll see temperatures jump and the thunderstorm chances increase. We’re looking for a slight risk of severe weather today. We are timing that risk for strong/severe storms in the afternoon.  Most of the storms move out by tonight.  The biggest threat with the late day storms will be large hail, but damaging winds and tornadoes can’t be ruled out. It does look like things dry up heading into a weekend when Major League Baseball and the NCAA Women’s Championship come to downtown Indianapolis.

Cooler air arrives on Friday and will last through the weekend, with highs only in the 50s. Next week temperatures remain cool and by Tuesday morning lows will drop into the 20s. The average high temperature is 58 and the average low is 38 degrees. It’s going to be generally cooler than average next week.

Big Changes Coming

We’re at the start of a pretty nice day with no rain until late in the afternoon. Morning sunshine will give way to afternoon clouds, with highs 65-70 degrees.
Daypartrain

We’re watching a system that will bring rain and storms to central Indiana later Wednesday into Thursday.  Right now we are forecasting the heaviest rain late Wednesday night through about noon on Thursday.  Widespread rain totals are expected in the range of .50″ to 1″, with locally higher amounts possible. There is a slight risk for severe weather tomorrow. Why? If we get some sun after the morning rain Thursday, the atmosphere will destabilize enough for the possibility of strong storms.  Highs will be near 70  Thursday.

severerisk

Once the cold front part of this weather system is east of central Indiana, the cooler air will be back.  Highs for Friday and the weekend drop back into the 50s, so it will be a little cooler than average for the Reds and Pirates game at Victory Field and for the start of the NCAA Women’s Final Four Sunday.
