The pavement is a little damp outside due to sprinkles,rain and mist this morning. We won’t get a lot of rain today but there will be chances for rain all day long.
More fog and mist build Monday night into Tuesday morning. This will slow down the development of potentially storms Tuesday afternoon and evening. While we don’t envision widespread storms… anything that develops later Tuesday may reach severe levels due to a strong wind field overlapping building instability. There is a chance for storms, mainly between 7 and 11 pm tomorrow night. We are under a low risk of severe weather, according to the Storm Prediction Center.
Right now, our above average temperature trend continues until the weekend. We also have a daily chance for rain except for St. Patrick’s Day.
Welcome to another weekend with above average high temperatures. There will be some wet changes for us, especially tomorrow.If you’re making plans for the day, espect more clouds than sunshine today with a high in the low 60s. It would be warmer were it not for an easterly breeze. There will be a few showers possible, but it won’t rain all day. Overall, not bad for folks headed to downtown Indianapolis for the Big Ten Tournament.
Sunday will be the wettest day this weekend. Even with the rain and storms, it will be mild, with afternoon temperatures between 65 and 70 degrees.
The unsettled but warmer than average pattern will last into Monday, with more rain and storms in the forecast. Tuesday will be dry and the warmest of the week and in the low 70s. Look for more rain and storms arrive Tuesday night and cooler air will follow. Highs will fall back into the 50s by Thursday and Friday.
ON THIS DAY IN INDIANA WEATHER HISTORY
1948: Indianapolis…a low temperature -5 marks the latest date in the spring for a temperature below zero.
No question about it, as you step out the door you realize that winter is not quite over yet. Our morning temperatures are 15 to 20 degrees colder than yesterday at this time. Still, we are looking for a real nice recovery later today. Look for a nice afternoon today, with highs in the middle 60s. The weekend will start warmer, with highs in the lower 70s.
We’re looking for rain this weekend but only scattered showers tomorrow. There will be a few dry hours on Saturday. If you have outdoor plans, remember to take us along with you. Download the SkyTrak13 Weather App so you can check the radar before your Saturday plans. Right now Sunday will the wetter of the 2 days this weekend. Rain chances will linger into Monday too.
Despite rain chances, it will be warm with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s through Monday. We could see highs in the middle to upper 70s by Wednesday of next week.
We are looking at April showers and April temperatures all day long today. Early this morning some folks were facing poor visibility with fog around. Wet conditions will be with us for the drive home as well. Temperatures will be cooler, but still well above normal, in the 50s and lower 60s. Rain ends from north to south Thursday evening as much colder, drier air filters in from the north.
You’ll notice that it will feel pretty chilly Friday morning when lows drop into the 30s and lower 40s. still by the afternoon, it looks fantastic with a brighter sky and a high in the mid 60s. This will be the best day for our visitors coming to Indianapolis for the Big 10 basketball tournament.
Scattered rain/thunder chances return Saturday but it looks like Sunday will be the wettest day this weekend. Though this week is warmer than normal… the warmest may be yet to come. Strong signals indicate near-record warmth the first half of next week.
It is going to be a day that feels a lot like April. Clouds roll in but so do showers and this marks the beginning of a much warmer than average stretch that takes at least 7 days. Tonight is WTHR night at the Pacers game and even though we are giving away umbrellas, you may not need them.
Despite cloudiness and showers at time, highs still climb into the mid-60s. This marks the beginning of a long stretch of unseasonably warm days with temperatures nearly 20 degrees above normal.
Our highs will be in the 65 to 70 degree range each day this week and possibly near record levels Wednesday. It could be wet and some of the rain could be heavy between Wednesday and Friday.
The computer models we look at closely indicate that this type of pattern stays with us into the weekend.
It is a little soupy out there this morning. As rain and snow moves out, some morning drivers will deal with some fog. Still sunshine later today with a high of 42. Today, by the way, will be the coolest day out of the next week.
Be prepared for a little moisture Saturday that will bring a rain/snow mix back to Central Indiana. More light accumulation is possible very early Saturday morning before temperatures climb into the 50s.
Sunday will be the best and brightest day this weekend with a mainly sunny sky and highs in the mid-50s. Next week will be considerably warmer with high temperatures some 20 degrees warmer than normal. Look for highs in the mid 60s to near 70 degrees by mid week. The trade-off to the warmer southwest flow will be a high chance of rain Wednesday and Thursday. Some of this rain be heavy with early indications of 1 to possibly 3 inches rainfall amounts.
It is a snowy, slushy morning in Central Indiana. Snow started moving into the Metro area a little after 1 this morning and there have been reports of slick spots today. While we don’t look for any heavy snow, the early morning timing and temperatures at/just below freezing will allow some roads to become slick for a few hours. Take your time when heading out today. Snow amounts at this time around the Indy metro area are forecast at an inch or less. Farther north of I-70 1″ to 3″ will be possible in heavier bursts.
By late morning temperatures climb into the mid and upper 30s as snow mixes with or changes to all rain. Roads will be wet for the afternoon and evening rush hour.
This system moves out and it will be dry Friday but another system moves in to start the weekend with rain/snow mix Saturday. Sunday we’re back to bright and in the mid-50s before much warmer conditions next week. While it will be warm Monday-Thursday we’re also anticipating a wetter pattern to develop too.
We have had some light snow flurries this morning which in some cases could be enough for some slick roads overnight and through the Wednesday morning drive. Temperatures have fallen into the lower and middle 20s.
Don’t worry because we will end up seeing a pretty day with highs returning to near 40 degrees. By the evening, clouds roll in and very light snow starts after midnight. This upper system will have marginally cold air to work with which should limit accumulation to 1-2″ slushy inches in some locations.
Snow will likely mix with rain at times on Thursday and with temperatures in the mid to upper 30s we could see some slush on roads. Another system brings another rain/snow chance Saturday before a significant warm up next week. Highs in the upper 60s and 70s are likely and a few record highs may be challenged.
Good morning and welcome to the start of a pretty active weather pattern in Indiana. Rain arrives in western Indiana around sunrise and in central Indiana before 10am today. We are looking at mainly rain in Indiana but if you are headed north, there is a weather advisory for snow along the Indiana Toll Road and around Chicago.
Cold air moves into the system and rain will start to change to snow in NW Indiana before the kids head home from school. The change from rain to snow will happen for most of central Indiana late Tuesday afternoon or early evening.
We are not forecasting much of this to stick. Where the change to snow happens first and where we get a few steadier bursts of snow, a slushy inch or so is possible.
There will be another chance for snow maybe mixing with rain Thursday and again early Saturday. We will keep you updated on the timing.
After these snow chances, we are tracking more warmth. We will be near 50 on Saturday and near 60 on Sunday.
Happy Leap Year Day! This day will be full of sunshine and gusty westerly winds as we get up to 55 degrees later this afternoon. This will be the warmest day out of the next 7 days. It will still be breezy with the winds shifting out of the northwest.
Enjoy the day because slowly, but surely, conditions will be changing as we head into the middle of the week with significant changes.
Another system arrives on Tuesday. Rain will be likely by afternoon and continue into the evening. There is a slight risk of severe weather in Southern Indiana and near Cincinnati tomorrow during the day.
As temperatures fall late Tuesday night, rain will change over to snow. Highs will only be in the 30s from Wednesday to Saturday.
Another chance for snow will be possible on Thursday.
Right now, next weekend looks dry with a warming trend returning.
