Mild Monday

Any Monday in February without rain or snow is good, so today will be a good day. The drive to work will be dry and weather problem free. The sky won’t be as bright but there should be some intervals of sun with cloud cover.  Look for a high around 48 later today.


Our main focus centers around what should be a powerful storm system impacting the Ohio Valley/Great Lakes Wednesday into Thursday. Right now it looks like we will see rain most of the day and it will change over to light snow late in the afternoon or early evening.

We are also looking, during the day Wednesday for high wind and a period of heavy rain. We will watch the storm track very carefully the next few days.


Wild And Windy

Hang on to your hat. The wind advisory for Indiana in place from 7 am until 7 pm today. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s and lower 60s, but winds will gust 45-50 mph. Much of the Midwest will feel the gusty winds and some flight delays could be part of today’s news. It will be a pretty day with lots of sun during the afternoon.


The weekend will start sunny and warm, with highs in the middle 60s. There is a chance for a few showers mainly early on Sunday. With more clouds and that chance for a few showers, it won’t be as warm. Highs will be in the 50s to end the weekend. Cooler air is back for next week, with highs in the 40s Monday through Thursday.



Hang In There!

Hang in there, things will slowly get better day by day. Some scattered areas of fog will be around this morning, but will not be a problem after 10 am. We’ll also see the sun break out later today  There will be more clouds than sunshine today, with highs in the range of 35-40 degrees.

Morning fog will give way to some sunshine on Thursday, with highs in the mid 40s. It will be the start of a major warmup that takes us into a fantastic weekend. Highs near 60 degrees are forecast for Friday through Sunday. We will also see a rather dry pattern with temperatures above normal until Tuesday of next week. At that time, the winter pattern comes back to Indiana. Early computer guidance suggests we will see a big temperature drop from the middle to latter part of next week.



Foggy Start Today

We have fog all over the area this morning and it could stick around most of the morning in spots. In some places, visibility will be under one half mile.Additional areas of freezing fog and drizzle linger around the next several mornings.  The overcast also hangs strong for much of the week.  Expect daily lows in the 20s and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 30s.


 We’re looking at a big, welcome,  warm up to arrive late week.  Strong southwesterly winds  push up 50s and 60s into Central Indiana on Friday.  It will be windy, with gusts in excess of 25-30mph. Look for a chance for spotty showers.The great weather continues over the weekend with highs in mid-50s and mainly dry conditions. 



Arctic Air At The Bus Stop

Arctic air and snow showers around today. By early morning, wind chills had dropped to below zero and the day ahead will stay real cold and well below average. Our high will not break out of the teens today in Indiana.


Morning snow showers will exit and there will be some sun on this afternoon. Low temperatures fall into the single digits tonight into Thursday morning.  Expect a mix of sun and clouds on Thursday, with highs in the 20s. Look for temperatures in the teens for the Pacers game tonight against Charlotte.


We are tracking another round of light snow for Friday.  Early computer guidance looks like an inch of snow will be common.  More arctic arrives for the weekend.  This will mean lows in the single digits and highs in the teens on Saturday.  There is another chance for snow to end the weekend Sunday night into Monday.  Our weather pattern remains active and cold for the next 7 days.



Warmer Weekend, Then…

So long to the chill, at least for a few days. Afternoons are going to be fantastic as we head into the weekend.



Sunshine will be with us all day today, with highs in the range of 40-45 degrees.  Highs will reach the middle and upper 40s on Saturday and near 50 degrees on Sunday.  This warm-up will end abruptly, as the weekend ends.

Arctic air arrives early next week, along with several chances for snow.  Highs fall back into the 20s, with lows in the teens Tuesday and Wednesday.  Snow chances arrive Monday and last through Wednesday.

We think there will be a couple of waves of steadier snow, with accumulations possible.  Stay tuned for updates.


Storms Out, Slow Cooling Coming

The storms have moved out and the cooler air will slowly move into Indiana today. Dense fog has already been a problem in Northern Indiana with a Dense Fog Advisory until 8 am. It will be dry most of the day but we will have slowly falling temperatures during the late morning and into the afternoon. 40s and morning sunshine today gives way to increasing clouds, mixed showers and temperatures falling into the 30s to finish. There is dense fog in Northern Indiana this morning.



If you have plans to wash the car, remember that we will stay mainly dry until Monday of next week.

After a couple of chilly days mid-week we return to the 40s and near 50 this weekend.  However all signs point toward much below normal next week with snow chances.


Storm Coming To Indiana

You could call it the calm before the storm on this Groundhog Day in Indiana. The SkyTrak13 Weather Team is tracking a storm system that will impact a large part of the country bringing blizzard conditions and the threat for severe weather to parts of our state.


It is dry and mild out there right now..  It will be a windy day, with a few showers possible.  The main area of storms will move across central Indiana from afternoon into early evening.  Damaging winds and isolated tornadoes are possible.  Highs will be near 60 degrees. The record high is 59 set back in 1911.severerisk

We get on the colder side of this weather system on Wednesday.  Expect a colder day in the 30s, with a few rain and snow showers.

Thursday through Sunday is dry as we start yet another gradual warming trend.  Highs will be in the 30s on Thursday and in the 40s on Friday and Saturday.  Temperatures climb to near 50 degrees on Sunday.


Cold Today, Great Weekend

Temperatures yesterday dropped during the afternoon and it is still cold this morning. Temperatures are in the 20s but we’ll warm up to the freezing mark later today. It’s an eventful day ,because this will be the coldest day for the next week and the last of the below average days for some time. We are forecasting more clouds than sunshine over the next couple of days.  Highs will be in the range of 35-40 on Thursday. Not a bad night, by the way, to go to see Butler take on DePaul tonight.

We are tracking a weak and fast moving weather system for Thursday.  There will be a few flurries or snow showers possible, but we aren’t forecasting the snow to stick.

The bigger story in the forecast is the warm-up.  Highs will be in the lower 50s on Saturday and Sunday.  As the next weather system arrives later Sunday into early next week, it will be rain and not snow with the mild weather pattern.


Storm Misses Indianapolis

extendedWe’re watching this huge winter storm stay south of us today, but the cold streak continues. Look for highs to only top out in the upper 20s this weekend with mainly dry conditions. We do suggest that you avoid travel into Kentucky the next couple of days. ice and snow will be an issue from the Ohio River south.

Central Indiana dodges the heavy snow bullet from this storm, but cities as far north as Bloomington, Columbus, and Greensburg could see light snow.  We believe a quick 1-2″ remains possible along and south of Bedford-Seymour-Greensburg line and a dusting to an inch is possible from Bloomington to Columbus.

Travel is definitely not advised tomorrow and Saturday south of the Ohio River.  It gets even worse heading toward the Mid-Atlantic where Blizzard Warnings are in effect for the D.C. area and a Blizzard Watch in place for Philly and New York City.

The weekend here looks cloudy for the most part but we should reach Friday by morning.
