Dry Now, Rain Later

Posted By · July 10, 2015 at 3:27 am

Dry outside now but we are looking for rain to move in later today. Rain amounts should be heavier in areas just south of Indianapolis. Rain should be out by early evening, making conditions ok for the Fever game and Symphony On The Prairie.


Look for Saturday to be mainly dry with changes coming late in the evening.

At this time it appears a complex of heavy storms will impact the viewing area Saturday night into Sunday morning.  The rain will be around for several hours.

Another storm complex targets the region Sunday night into Monday morning…. possibly severe.  Scattered storms reemerge Monday afternoon and upper level energy spinning around the Ohio Valley next week provides a daily chance of showers and storms.  Have a great evening and check back for updates on timing and coverage,

The Faucet Is Still On!

Posted By · July 9, 2015 at 3:21 am

Raindrops are still falling in parts of Central Indiana this morning. A flash food watch is in effect for central Indiana through this morning.  After the morning drive, we are looking at mainly cloudy skies with only a few spotty showers.  The rain won’t be as heavy or as widespread as the last couple of days.  Highs will only be in the 70s.  We get back closer to the average high of 85 degrees on Friday and over the weekend, as both temperatures and humidity start to increase.

Scattered storms are still possible on Friday and this weekend.  Highs will be near 80 on Friday and in the upper 80s this weekend.  It does look like mainly dry weather for Saturday so hopefully, some of you will be able to get some of the high grass mowed.

Cooler Now, But Rain Returns

Posted By · July 8, 2015 at 3:25 am

What a difference a day makes! This morning we have cooler and drier air moving in coming off yesterday when we received almost a month’s worth of rain in just a few hours.  The average July rain is 4.55″ and the total from yesterday was 4.43″. We still have a flood warning for much of the area until 8 am.


The rain in Southern Indiana moves back north during the day today. Look for a chilly high near 70 degrees.

Scattered storms are in our outlook for Thursday and Friday, with highs near 80 on Thursday and in the 80s on Friday.

We are still forecasting 90 degree heat and slight storm chances this weekend. The weekend, by the way, will be the next best time to get a chance to mow your yard.

Watching Radar

Posted By · July 7, 2015 at 3:21 am

The dry streak is over and a wet pattern begins in Indiana.

Rain started to move into Northern Indiana early this morning and we will see rain and thunderstorms during the day today especially later as we experience daytime heating. A few storms could be strong with heavy rain. With the threat for more rain and storms this week, flooding will continue to be an issue across central Indiana.


With clouds and rain chances, high temperatures will be in the range of 75-80 degrees today through Thursday, even though Wednesday most of the activity will be to the south of Indianapolis.

Right now we have the rain chances through Friday night, with some dry hours in the forecast just in time for the weekend. We are also forecasting some heat this weekend, with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Holiday Weekend Is Here!

Posted By · July 3, 2015 at 3:32 am

We have a really good weekend ahead with some pleasant weather ahead.  There will still be the chance for a few spotty showers today although at around 3 this morning heavy rain fell on the southside of Indy.  We are only expecting a few showers to pop-up.  Most of your outdoor plans are a go for Friday.  Highs will be near 80 degrees today


A drier weather pattern arrives just in time for the Fourth of July.  We are forecasting a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday and Sunday, with highs in the lower and middle 80s.  Temperatures will be in the 70s with partly cloudy skies for the fireworks Saturday night. Look for fantastic weather for the Rolling Stones concert and for fireworks celebrations around the area.

This dry pattern is forecast to last through Monday.  Rain and storms return for Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

Holiday Countdown

Posted By · July 2, 2015 at 3:24 am

Most of the rain this morning has been around and south of I-70. That trend will continue today. The haze we have seen the past few days comes our way because of wildfires in northwestern Alberta, Canada.

Most of the storms moving from Illinois into Indiana have been moving to the east southeast. We’ll be watching Doppler 13 radar for the rest of the day.

After this system departs to the east by early afternoon today, we’ll be fairly dry area wide heading into the holiday weekend. The hazy sky lingers but we’ll be able to enjoy plenty of dry time and all systems are a go at this point for the Rolling Stones concert at IMS Saturday and fireworks in downtown Indy.
Look for highs to warm into the mid 80s by Monday of next week.

July In Like A Lamb

Posted By · July 1, 2015 at 3:30 am

Coming off of the 7th wettest June in Indiana history, things are more quiet this morning. A nice northwest wind has made the morning rush hour dry. The Indians play this afternoon and overall, it should be a great day to watch the Tribe play.


We aren’t ruling out rain and thunderstorms today, but mainly for the southern and southwestern viewing area.  The latest storm track moves a bit further north so we will include a chance for rain and thunderstorms today, mainly south of I-70.

After a mainly dry Thursday, we will look for mainly dry weather Friday into Sunday afternoon.  We’re going to keep isolated afternoon storm chances for the 4th of July and Sunday… but also reiterate that much of the region and most of the day will be dry and warm.

Improving Forecast

Posted By · June 30, 2015 at 3:26 am

We have been watching some rain and thunderstorms move into Indiana on Live Doppler 13 this morning.  Look for more rain late morning, intensifying in  the afternoon, and moving out toward sunset. It looks like the Indianapolis Indians have a pretty good night, all in all , for baseball against the Columbus Clippers at Victory Field.


Those storms will push south toward the Ohio River Wednesday and Thursday… allowing for mostly dry conditions both day and highs near 80.A renewed surge of scattered storms arrive during the Friday as the boundary buckles back northward into the state along with a upper disturbance. Right now, it looks like we will have more dry weather than wet weather over the weekend but keep checking with us as we head into the big 4th weekend.By the way, yesterdays rain kicks out monthly total up to 8.36″ which is good for the 7th wettest June on record… and wettest June in 5 years.




1877: Waverly, Franklin, and St. Paul…a tornado struck killing 10. The tornado picked up a school near Waverly and moved it 50 yards down a hill and carried another school across a field scattering its furniture for half a mile.
