Storms Roll In Later

Posted By · April 13, 2015 at 3:28 am

We are starting out dry, but expect some scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and early this evening. Though severe weather isn’t anticipated, there could be some quick, heavy downpours of rain.  Any storm is also capable of frequent lightning and gusty wind.

Looks like we will get the Indianapolis Indians game in this evening.

The passage of the front Monday evening pushes most of the rain out of the state by Tuesday 12am.  However clouds may linger Tuesday morning before the sky become mostly sunny by Tuesday afternoon.  Much of Wednesday looks nice before storm chances increase again heading into Thursday morning.

The early call for next weekend is quiet, mostly bright conditions again!  This would time out nicely with The Race For The Cure Saturday morning.

Late Spring Storms

Posted By · April 8, 2015 at 3:27 am

It is a little wet and foggy in spots this morning.Still, we may see some sunshine today and on a very humid April day, the high will warm into the mid 70s. Look for rain tonight if you are headed to the Indy Fuel game, the last regular season home game for them.

Daypartfuel

Look for storms to move into Indiana late tonight into Thursday morning.  Tomorrow will be really wet with several periods of rain and storms along with a risk of severe weather.  Exact There is a chance that the cloud and rain in the morning could limit our chance for severe weather later in the day, but we’re still watching that situation.

severerisk

At the very least we’re staring down very heavy rain, frequent lightning and gusty storms.  “If” moderate instability materializes a higher damaging wind threat will be present and even a potential for embedded tornadoes.  We are hoping this doesn’t affect the Indians home opener but it certainly could.

Wet Start Today

Posted By · April 7, 2015 at 3:19 am

The NCAA Championship is over in downtown Indy, but rain has moved in now that many fans are leaving town. Look for a damp morning rush hour. Showers started in the area earlier this morning.

Daypart

Much of the rain will ease up by 5pm as an upper disturbance departs the state, but there will remain a few showers & storms late day that could pack a punch too.  A new round of heavy rain and thunderstorms will move back in again later tonight.  Much like today… it appears the most widespread rain/storm coverage will be early Wednesday.  Wednesday may prove to be mainly dry and quite warm in the mid to upper 70s.

Though Central Indiana is not technically highlighted in a “Slight Risk” or higher category… we believe there will be enough instability at times that warrants your attention to remain weather.

At this time it appears Thursday will provide the highest rain and storm chances, along with severe weather potential Thursday night into Friday morning.  Sadly, that is the opening day for the Indians at beautiful Victory Field.

Look for dry weather for the weekend.

We’re looking at a fairly wet pattern this week with total accumulations amounting to an inch or two by the end of the week.

More rain and thunderstorms will arrive late tonight, mainly after midnight.  Storms could be heavy at times through Tuesday morning.

Tuesday will be mostly cloudy and mild with more rain chances returning late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.

Daily chances of rain continue through Friday with several dry periods each day. We are looking for a chance for thunderstorms for the Indians home opener on Thursday.

The upcoming weekend looks dry right now with breezy winds on Saturday.  Temperatures will be in the mid 60s.

A Little Bit Of Everything

Posted By · March 24, 2015 at 3:21 am

We’re starting this day off dry but keeping an eye on radar too. Rain will move into parts of the area this afternoon and continue on and off into tomorrow morning. The second round will be Wednesday night through early Thursday.  Heavy rain and gusty winds will be possible with both rounds of storms.  Look for rain amounts of more than an inch into Thursday morning.

 

It won’t rain all day Wednesday. We do expect some dry hours during the day and we will be in the warm sector of this active weather pattern.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the range warm to 69 in Indianapolis and even warmer around Bloomington and Columbus.

 

More cold air arrives on Thursday and Friday, as highs fall back into the 40s.

Active Pattern This Week

Posted By · March 23, 2015 at 3:16 am

Monday is here and so too, the chance for a little weather later today. The morning will be mainly dry, but we are looking for the possibility of rain and a little sleet with some snowflakes mixed in , later this afternoon.  However we’re advising that you take the umbrella with you to work and school as rain increases by 3pm.  Our highs today will be about 13 degrees below average later today.

 

We are looking at a pretty unstable and active weather pattern this week.  Look for a bit of a warm up Wednesday when highs shoot into the mid-60s.

 

Colder air quickly returns Thursday and marks another stretch of well below normal temperatures.  Highs Friday and Saturday struggle to hit 40 degrees with snow showers possible Friday.
