Best Day Of The Week

Posted By · June 24, 2015 at 3:32 am

A fantastic day is here! Temperatures and dew points are low this morning and it is a beautiful day, probably the best day of the week.

Look for sunny skies most of the day.  Cloud debris from upstream storms will spill into the state as the day wears on, and some late day showers or storms are possible near the Illinois/Indiana border.

Later tonight, areas from Indianapolis north and west will be under a risk of severe weather. At this time it appears a severe storm complex will develop near Iowa and intensify as it marches eastward.

A cooler than normal pattern will move in to Indiana late week and into the weekend.  After morning storms Friday we anticipate mainly dry conditions until early next week.

Weather Pattern Change

Posted By · June 23, 2015 at 3:22 am

The weather pattern has settled down now that a cold front is moving through Indiana. Heavy rain dotted parts of Northwest Indiana earlier this morning, but for the most part, it has been dry in the Metro area.


Today, winds out of the northwest put a cap on our temperatures so our highs today and for the rest of the week will slowly go down. By the weekend our highs will top out in the 70s and today and tomorrow will be mainly dry. Look for another chance for storms both Thursday and Friday.

The weekend will provide us with a chance for rain and thunderstorms Saturday but Sunday and Monday will be dry and nice. The jet stream next week keeps us very mild.

Weather Pattern Stays

Posted By · June 22, 2015 at 3:18 am

We begin another work week that weather wise, looks a lot like last week. With scattered thunderstorms today, there is a risk of strong to severe thunderstorms once again.This time, the best threat will be north of I-70, during afternoon into the evening.  Temperatures will climb into the upper 80s. In fact, these warm temperatures stay with us most of the week.


Daily chances of thunderstorms will continue through the week with temperatures running well above average.  The humidity sticks around too.

Cooler and less humid conditions arrive next weekend. If you can hang in there highs will be in the mid 70s by Sunday.



1992: Low temperatures in the 30s in the north and central caused a damaging frost. Indianapolis’ low temperature of 37 is lowest ever recorded in the city during the summer months.

The latest timing has the heaviest rain moving out of central Indiana early Saturday.  This would mean a dry Saturday afternoon.  Look for highs in the 80s on Saturday and near 90 on Sunday.  There is a chance for a pop-up shower or storm on Sunday, be look for more dry weather than wet weather for Father’s Day.

The Pattern Stays!

Posted By · June 18, 2015 at 3:21 am

We are looking for another day with a real summery mix of weather. Look for sun, clouds and thunderstorms that at times, could produce heavy downpours of rain.


According to the Storm Prediction Center, there is a slight risk for severe weather.  High temperatures will depend on the coverage of rain.  We are forecasting highs in the lower 80s.  Where the rain is heaviest and steadiest, temperatures will be closer to 80.  Where there are a few more dry breaks, highs will reach the middle 80s.  The forecast is the same for Friday and Saturday.


The remnants of Tropical Storm Bill that brings the heavy rain threat to central Indiana Friday and Saturday.  Right now it looks like the heaviest rain will be in the southern part of the state.

Look for sun, clouds and thunderstorms on Father’s Day, with highs in the upper 80s.  Scattered storms are possible later in the day on Sunday.  There is a chance for a stray storm or 2 Monday and Tuesday, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees.

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.


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.


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.
