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.

One More Hot, Stormy Day

Posted By · July 29, 2015 at 3:24 am

Look for a time of rain and thunderstorms this morning and then again this afternoon. Some of the afternoon storms could produce heavy rain and lightning.


Besides the chance for strong storms and flooding, another big threat today will be the heat.  Heat indices today will reach the 95 to 100 degree range.  By late tonight, you’ll feel the cooler and drier air move into Indiana and tomorrow will be a great day with sunshine, highs in the mid 80s and lower humidity.


Tomorrow and into the weekend look to be shaping up to be very pleasant with plenty of sunshine and high temperatures in the mid 80s.

Mild Pattern

Posted By · July 22, 2015 at 3:22 am

This is more like it! Temperatures are running 5-10 degrees cooler now then at this time yesterday. Humidity is also down and for many, with a high of only 80, this will be the most pleasant day of the week. The Indians play this afternoon and it should be a real pleasant day for a ball game at Victory Field.


Lows will be in the 60s Thursday and Friday mornings, with afternoon highs in the lower 80s, Thursday and middle 80s on Friday.  We are forecasting dry weather through the start of the weekend.

For the weekend, most of Saturday looks dry.  It will be warmer and more humid, with highs in the middle and upper 80s.  The latest timing of weekend rain chances has storm chances returning late Saturday into early Sunday. At this point, there is a chance for scattered storms for the running of the Brickyard Sunday.

It Will Get Drier!

Posted By · July 21, 2015 at 3:34 am

Last nights rain really added up. At 11.88″ this July, we are now the 2nd wettest July on record and the 4th wettest month in recorded history in Indianapolis. There will be gradual relief from the higher heat and humidity today.  It will still be a bit muggy through late afternoon.  Highs will top out at 83 today. Most of the area will be dry.  There is a just a chance for a stray shower south of Indianapolis Tuesday afternoon.  As winds come out of the north and northwest, it should be a great night for baseball for the Indians at Victory Field tonight.


A dry stretch of weather is in the forecast for Wednesday through Friday.  Highs will be near 80 on Wednesday and in the lower and middle 80s Thursday and Friday.

Higher heat and humidity return for the weekend, with highs in the upper to near 90 degrees.  There is a chance for a few storms late Saturday and a slight chance for a storm on Sunday.We’ll be watching your Brickyard 400 forecast for better details as we get closer to Sunday.

Muggy Monday

Posted By · July 20, 2015 at 3:20 am

It’s a muggy start to our work week, but the work week as a whole should be mainly dry with cooler temperatures. We are not there yet.

Look for a pop up thunderstorm later today and again tomorrow. Today, there is a low risk of severe weather around Evansville,but the Storm Prediction Center has kept Central Indiana out of that area. It looks like the Indians have no problem getting the game in tonight as they return to play at Victory Field.

The dry weather coming mid week is welcome and will give swollen rivers, creeks and tributaries a chance to recede a bit.

This July is Indianapolis’ 5th wettest month on record with nearly two weeks to go, but again, we won’t add much to that mark this week.

High pressure settling across the Ohio Valley provides pleasant morning lows in the 50s and lower 60s followed by mild afternoons Wednesday to Saturday. We do have isolated storm chances returning Brickyard 400 Sunday… but much can and will change in the forecast between now and then.

Days Of Change Coming

Posted By · July 16, 2015 at 3:23 am

It’s another pleasant start in Indiana and even though today will be warmer than Wednesday, we’re looking for another pleasant day. It should be beautiful tonight for the Indianapolis Zoo Animals And All That Jazz Concert tonight.


There will be a mix of sun and clouds this afternoon, with highs in the lower 80s.  The morning sun will give way to afternoon clouds, as a warm front moves our way.  Look for a chance for showers early Friday morning and then after many dry hours, another chance late in the day or Friday evening.  The heat will be the bigger story for Friday and the weekend.

Highs will be near 90 on Friday and in the lower 90s on Saturday and Sunday.  With the heat and humidity building, heat index values will be in the range of 100-105 for Friday and this weekend. 

We are tracking the best chance for widespread rain and storms on Monday next week.

This Is More Like It!

Can you feel the difference? A refreshing north wind has cooled down temperatures and dropped humidity levels around Indiana this morning. It’s a great day, far different from the thunderstorms that started the day yesterday.

There will be some morning sun and some afternoon clouds on today, with highs near 79 degrees.  Highs will be near 80 on Thursday too, with a mix of clouds and sun and a chance for an isolated shower.


Higher heat and humidity return for Friday and the weekend, with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s.  There is a slight chance for a stray storm later Friday.  We have the weekend dry for now, with the better chance for more rain and storms arriving early next week.

Dry Now, Rain Later

Posted By · July 10, 2015 at 3:27 am

Dry outside now but we are looking for rain to move in later today. Rain amounts should be heavier in areas just south of Indianapolis. Rain should be out by early evening, making conditions ok for the Fever game and Symphony On The Prairie.


Look for Saturday to be mainly dry with changes coming late in the evening.

At this time it appears a complex of heavy storms will impact the viewing area Saturday night into Sunday morning.  The rain will be around for several hours.

Another storm complex targets the region Sunday night into Monday morning…. possibly severe.  Scattered storms reemerge Monday afternoon and upper level energy spinning around the Ohio Valley next week provides a daily chance of showers and storms.  Have a great evening and check back for updates on timing and coverage,
