Big Pattern Change

Posted By · April 20, 2015 at 3:21 am

A little bit of everything the next few days. We have seen temperatures drop, a few showers and windy conditions this morning. In fact, the pattern we’ll see this week will be the coolest outbreak of weather since March. Temperatures should be locked in the 50s today and likely what highs will be much of the week.

Daypart

The main forecast headline this week will be cooler than temperatures with several days of highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.  A couple of mornings patchy frost will be possible and fine-tune this part of the forecast in the days ahead.  We aren’t looking for any severe weather organized precipitation seems unlikely, but spotty showers will be possible Wednesday into Saturday.

Find A Foghorn!

Posted By · April 17, 2015 at 3:21 am

Be careful out there! Dense fog advisory in effect until 9 am. Lots of airports reporting less than a quarter of a mile visibility.

Mostly sunny skies are in the Friday forecast, with highs in the 70s. Look for a wonderful night tonight for the Indians game or the Neil Diamond concert at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

The weekend will start warm and dry too.  Highs on Saturday will be in the middle and upper 70s, with some sun.  This dry start to the weekend is great news for the Race for the Cure Saturday morning.  This is at Military Park in downtown Indianapolis and there is still time to register.  Temperatures will be in the 50s to start and in the middle 60s by noon on Saturday.

RaceForCure

The end of the weekend is a bit more tricky.  We are tracking a developing weather system that will bring rain and storm chances back to central Indiana on Sunday..  The chance for rain and storms will last into Monday, with highs on Sunday and Monday in the 60s.  The long range temperature trend looks even cooler.

Wet Start Today

Posted By · April 16, 2015 at 3:19 am

We have had rain and thunderstorms this morning and the ride to work and school will be on wet pavement today. Despite the rain, we’ll warm up to 68 degrees, 4 degrees above average later today. It is however, another example of an above average high temperature in what has proven to be a mild month so far.

DaypartIndians

Look for two more days with highs in the lower 70s.  These are in the forecast for Friday and Saturday.  Both days will be dry.

The weekend outlook is a little more uncertain with an upper level weather system.  We have made a change to Sunday, because it looks like the system will get here for the end of the weekend.  That change will include rain chances on Sunday. The chance for rain will linger into Monday and cooler air is back for next week, with highs in the 50s on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Beautiful April Day

Posted By · April 15, 2015 at 3:32 am

Enjoy this fantastic day of weather in Central Indiana today. It is already pleasant out there and later we’re looking for partly sunny skies with highs in the range of 65-70 degrees.  It will be breezy too, with winds gusting to 25 miles per hour. Should be a great afternoon at Victory Field as the Indians take on Louisville.

Indians

We’ll be watching an unsettled weather pattern for the end of the week.  Rain chances return late Wednesday.  Scattered showers and storms stay in the forecast for Thursday.  Highs on Thursday will again be in the range of 65-70 degrees.

Most of the rain will move out of central Indiana for Friday, but the day will start with low clouds, fog and drizzle.  Highs on Friday will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

After an isolated shower Friday, we’ll keep the chance for an isolated shower in Saturday with a better chance for rain and thunderstorms Sunday.

Another Weather Change

Posted By · April 14, 2015 at 3:19 am

The faucet has been turned off but the clouds are still around this morning. The forecast is dry, but mostly cloudy. High temperatures will be in the mid 60s this afternoon. The Pacers play Washington in a must win game, but no pressure from the weather on you arriving dry. No rain will be around this evening.

 

.Daypartpacers

We have Tuesday and most of Wednesday dry, before rain chances return. The best chance for rain and a few storms will be on Thursday and Friday. High temperatures Wednesday through the weekend will be in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

So far so good for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure on Saturday. There is a chance for rain Friday night, but right now, it looks like things will dry out before the festivities start downtown.extended

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.

Daypartrain

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

Indians

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.
