Wet And Warm Pattern

Posted By · June 17, 2015 at 3:14 am

Here we go again! Another wet start and really, we should get used to it, because rain chances are with us most of the next week.

Daypartsevererisk

Rain moved into the Metro area around 3 am and the wet pavement sticks with us during the morning rush hour.  Scattered storms stay in the forecast through Wednesday afternoon and some storms may reach severe limits. Much of central Indiana is under a slight risk for severe weather on today and tomorrow. If you live in a flood prone area, keep an eye open the next few days on flooding possibilities.

How about Tropical Storm Bill?  It made land fall on Tuesday and that tropical moisture is forecast to move our way for the end of the week.  This keeps the threat for heavy rain in the forecast through the start of the weekend.   Right now plan around storm chances both Saturday and Sunday.  Highs will be in the lower 80s on Saturday and in the upper 80s for Father’s Day.

Wet Start And More To Come

Posted By · June 16, 2015 at 3:14 am

it has been a very wet morning with many spots having nearly an inch of rain, just since midnight. Look for wet pavement this morning with a chance for more scattered thunderstorms today. By tomorrow, the Storm Prediction Center has us under a slight risk of severe weather.

Last night the Indians got the game in with Durham and more than likely will tonight as well at beautiful Victory Field.

Highs Tuesday through Friday will be in the lower and middle 80s, with lows near 70 degrees.

Computer model guidance continues to suggest residual tropical moisture courtesy of a land falling system from the Gulf of Mexico will feed into the Ohio Valley later this week.  It still remains uncertain exactly where the heaviest rain axis will set up, but widespread 3-6″+ rain amounts are possible in Central Indiana between now and next Monday.  Stay tuned for updates

Heat And Storms

Posted By · June 15, 2015 at 3:20 am

Already this morning, it is warm and muggy after seeing overnight showers. Our humidity remains in the oppressive range with tropical dewpoints at or above 70 degrees.There is a chance for rain and thunderstorms for the Indians game against Durham tonight.

DaypartIndians

This morning will be mainly dry but expect highs in the mid to upper 80s with heat indices soaring well into the 90s.  Some of the rain will be heavy and we could see some strong thunderstorms pop up.

Our rain amounts could be significant this week. Computer model guidance suggest widespread 3″+ rainfall will be likely by the end of the week… with locally higher amounts in pockets of storms between now and then. Be prepared, this will be a week very much like one in August.

Weekend Weather Changes

Posted By · June 12, 2015 at 3:25 am

It is already warm and it will stay that way all day today
Scattered showers and storms are in the outlook for today. It won’t rain all day and it will be warm and muggy. Look for our warmest streak in 9 months to continue with a high of 90 degrees.There is a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms tonight for the Indians game and for Zoobilation, the big fundraiser at the Indianapolis Zoo.

DaypartIndians
The weather pattern remains warm, humid and unsettled over the next 7 days. Scattered storms are possible both Saturday and Sunday, but there will also be plenty of dry hours for your outdoor plans. Highs will be in the middle and upper 80s on Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures next week will be slightly above average most of next week in Indiana.

The Heat Is On!

Posted By · June 11, 2015 at 3:17 am
The hottest weather in 9 months continues here in Central Indiana. Today, the Strawberry Festival is downtown and the Brickyard Racing Vintage Invitational starts up at the Motor Speedway. Find shade for both of those events!
speedway
It looks like we hit 90 both today and tomorrow with some isolated storms today and more scattered storms tomorrow.
As we head into the weekend, storm chances increase.  We’re advising you to check radar frequently Friday evening if you head out to events like Zoobilation or the Indianapolis Indians.  We expect a line of heavy and possibly severe storms to impact parts of Central Indiana… though exact timing and location remains to be determined.
The risk of storms remains in the forecast throughout the weekend and into next week.  Though we don’t anticipate all day rains, it does appear Central Indiana will be in the cross-hairs of several storm complexes that will impact the Ohio Valley.  Get ready for plenty of muggy heat and heavy storms at times the next 7-10 days.

Burners Are On!

Posted By · June 10, 2015 at 3:22 am
Can you feel the change in the weather?  Our conditions the next few days will be very much like August instead of June. Look for temperatures to be close to 90 for highs the next few days. Expect a mix of sun and clouds today, with highs in the middle and upper 80s.  There is a chance for a few late storms mainly across the northern part of the state. There is also a slight risk of severe weather in Northern Indiana late today and tonight.
severeriskDaypart
It will be a similar day on Thursday.  We are forecasting our first 90 degree day on Thursday.  There will be a mix of sun and clouds.  There is a slight chance for a few storms on Thursday afternoon.
Storm chances will start to increase for Friday and the weekend.  We do think it will be similar to last weekend.  This means the weekend won’t be a washout.  However, umbrellas will be needed for events like Zoobilation at the Indianapolis Zoo Friday night.

Warming Up!

Posted By · June 9, 2015 at 3:23 am

It’s out with the storms and in with the fog this morning. Look for scattered dense fog this morning in parts of Indiana today. It is a little sticky outside this morning as well.

A mix of sun and clouds is in the  forecast, with highs around 84 degrees.  The SkyTrak13 Weather Team is tracking the hottest air of the season for later this week.  Highs on Wednesday will be in the upper 80s.  We are looking for upper 80s and lower 90s on Thursday and Friday.

In addition to the heat, the weather pattern turns stormy at times.  There is a chance for a few storms Thursday.  We have more storms possible later Friday and into the weekend.  It does stay warm through the weekend, with highs in the 80s on Saturday and Sunday.

Cold Now, Better Tomorrow

Posted By · May 21, 2015 at 3:24 am

It’s still cool this morning in Indianapolis, but it’s also a bit breezy. The winds are out of the west and northwest so temperatures will only warm up to the low 60s.

Daypartextended

The warm-up begins on Friday, with highs in the 70s.  The timing of warmer and drier weather is great news for the beginning of the holiday weekend.

Carb day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is Friday and it will be a bit warmer and a lot more comfortable with a high of  74.  The 500 Festival Parade is in downtown Indianapolis on Saturday and the sun will shine all day long with a high of  76.

The forecast is a bit more tricky for the end of the holiday weekend.  Right now we have most of Sunday dry for the 99th Indy 500.  There is a chance for rain on Sunday, but we think that will be later in the day.  Monday is Memorial Day and there are scattered storms in the forecast.  In fact the weather pattern warms in to the upper 70s and lower 80s for Sunday through Wednesday, with daily storm chances.
