Storms This Week

Posted By · June 2, 2014 at 3:31 am

Lots of changes this morning and this week too. There will be an almost daily chance of scattered thunderstorms in Central Indiana.
More humid air arrives today. Another round of thunderstorms will develop by afternoon and will continue into the evening. An isolated strong or severe storm will be possible. Afternoon highs will climb into the low 80s.

Storms will taper off Monday night with just a slight chance of a scattered shower or storm on Tuesday. Temperatures will climb into the mid 80s.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely again on Wednesday, especially by afternoon and evening. Some storms on Wednesday could be strong to severe.

Cooler air arrives on Thursday, bringing back near seasonal temperatures.

Vintage Indiana takes place this Saturday at Military Park from noon to 6pm. Right now, it looks like Saturday will be dry with more chances of rain returning on Sunday.DaypartIndians

Nice Weekend Ahead

Posted By · May 30, 2014 at 3:33 am

What a great morning in Indiana and what a lovely weather pattern for the beginning of June. Outdoor plans are ok this weekend with lower humidity and highs in the 80s.
A drier northeast wind will push in less humid conditions for Friday and into the weekend. Highs today will be comfortable in the 80 to 85 range. Humid air and storm chances return after Sunday and marks the beginning of an unsettled, potentially very wet stretch next week. I think we have a real good chance of scattered thunderstorms from Monday-Thursday. By the way, the average high this time of year is 77 and the average low is 58.

Heat, Humidity, Thunderstorms

Posted By · May 28, 2014 at 3:26 am

Summer heat and humidity have returned to Indiana, and today, more summer like storms. At this point we aren’t looking for much in the line of severe weather, but keep in mind that in heat and humidity, locally heavy storms are never out of the question

We will keep thunderstorms in the forecast Thursday.  Friday into Sunday features mostly sunny/warm weather across the state… with comfortable lows in the 50s and highs in the mid-80s.

Storm chances return early next week with some thunder and lightning possible Monday.

Storm Chances Kick In

Posted By · May 27, 2014 at 4:17 am

The calendar says we are still in spring but believe us folks, we are in a summer weather pattern that
will take us well into next week. Warmer weather and scattered thunderstorms
will be the norm in many of our forecasts.

Starting today through Thursday scattered showers and thunderstorms are in the
forecast as highs reach the low to mid 80s. We’re not looking for a washout,
but the afternoons and evenings are looking rainy with rumbles of thunder.

We start to dry out Friday, and just in time for the weekend as highs remain in
the 80s.
Dew points remain high, so the humid air will be sticking around this week too.

Great Memorial Day Start

Posted By · May 26, 2014 at 3:40 am

What a beautiful morning in Indiana on this Memorial Day. Don’t cancel any plans due to the weather. Overall it will be mainly dry. However, daytime heating and an increase in low-level moisture may be enough to set off isolated showers and rumbles of thunder but most of you have a fantastic day.

There will be a daily chance of showers and storms into Thursday, before all signs point toward another warm/dry weekend next Saturday and Sunday.

Enjoy this day and take time to be thankful, on this Memorial Day for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Great Memorial Day Weekend

Posted By · May 23, 2014 at 3:19 am

Drier air, sunshine and no rain…everything needed for a great Memorial Day Weekend.

Looks like a good day at the Motor Speedway today. Expect low to mid 50s at the track this morning if you’re heading out to Carb Day. Plenty of sunshine from start to finish tomorrow and comfortably mild highs in the middle 70s.

Another ideal set up for the 500 Festival Parade Saturday, that includes afternoon temperatures in the upper 70s.

The 500 still looks great and remember out coverage starts at 5 am raceday morning on WTHR. Summer heat builds into the region just in time for Memorial Day and last well into the second half of next week.

So Long Storms!

Posted By · May 22, 2014 at 3:33 am

What a night with storms rumbling through Indiana. Now, the storms are gone and beautiful weather is on the way the next several days. Many towns last night received more than an 1 inch of rain and winds exceeded 50 miles per hour during the storms in several towns, including downtown Indianapolis

Look for highs to slowly warm into the holiday weekend, which means great conditions for Carb Day, the 500 Festival Parade and the Indy 500.

Memorial Day looks muggy but without thunderstorms. At this point, we’ll hold off chances for rain until Tuesday, making this one of the best Memorial Day weekends in memory.

Storms Today

Posted By · May 21, 2014 at 3:40 am

This morning, most of the rain and thunderstorms in Indiana has been to the north but we all get wet later today, especially this afternoon. There is a slight risk of severe weather and some of our computer guidance suggests we could get around a half inch of rain. It does appear rain and thunderstorms will be around for Community Day activities at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this afternoon.

The passage of a cold front changes things, setting us up for a mild and dry stretch of weather into the weekend. Remember , it is a weekend that includes the 500 Festival Parade, the Indy 500 and Memorial Day.

 

We are forecasting some sun and 76 for Carb Day, sunshine on 78 for Parade Day, sunshine and 80 for Race Day and some sun and 85 for Memorial Day.

THIS DAY IN INDIANA WEATHER HISTORY

1949 : Two tornadoes killed 17 people and injured over 200 more. Most of the deaths and injuries occurred when a tornado hit the west side of Shelburn.
