A weak system will continue to push off to the east on Sunday.  This system will keep  just a small chance of a few more sprinkles in our east central viewing area during the afternoon.  Temperatures will climb into the low 80s.

There is an upper level system that could bring a few sprinkles in our east central viewing area today, otherwise, it will be partly sunny with a high near 80.

It will be partly cloudy and cool tonight with temperatures falling to near 60 degrees – another great night to open the windows.  It will be a great night for the Indy Eleven game this evening.

It will be mostly sunny Sunday with temperatures climbing into the low 80s. Winds will be light out of the northeast with another small chance of light rain in our east central viewing area.

The heat and humidity crank up by Monday, with temperatures soaring into the upper 80s.

Sunday Storms, Cooler by Tuesday

Posted By · July 13, 2014 at 6:50 am

Thunderstorms are making their way east-southeast this morning along a cold front. Storms will arrive to the Indianapolis area after 9am this morning. The chances of severe weather ramp back up later this morning through mid afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center has Indianapolis and areas along and south of I-70 in the risk for severe weather today. The main threats look like damaging winds and heavy rain.

severe wx

The front will move south today and stall out along the Ohio River Valley. This will keep the chance of more storms to develop later this afternoon, mainly south of I-70. Temperatures will climb into the upper 70s and low 80s.

Later this evening, the storm chances go down. If you are heading to the Zac Brown Band show tonight at Klipsch Music Center, take the rain gear just in case. Any rain tonight though, will be very isolated. Temperatures will fall into the upper 60s.

A secondary cold front arrives on Monday. There is chance of more showers and thunderstorms, especially early afternoon through early evening. Temperatures will climb into the low 80s.

This second front will help pack the punch of much cooler and drier air. Temperatures will be running 10 to 15 degrees below normal during the work week. It will feel more like late September than mid July!

A Canadian high pressure will keep us dry for several day with temperatures rebounding closer to normal by the weekend.

Tracking Sunday Storms

Posted By · July 12, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Some showers and a few isolated thunderstorms moved into Indiana today. Most of the heavy rain was in west central Indiana, with some areas picking up close to a half inch of rain.

wxbug

Temperatures only climbed into the mid to upper 70s this afternoon, thanks to the rain and cloud cover. It will be a nice evening at Victory Field for an Indians game.

The rest of the evening should be dry with the exception of an isolated sprinkle. More showers and thunderstorms will be possible overnight and then likely by Sunday morning as a cold front pushes in. Temperatures will only fall into the low 70s with muggy conditions.

Showers and thunderstorms will push from northwest to southeast on Sunday. The timing is still a bit up in the air but it looks like our northern viewing could start to see some stronger storms by mid to late morning. The line of storms will move into south central Indiana by late afternoon. Some storms could be strong to severe with the main threats being damaging winds and large hail.

A few more scattered storms will be possible Sunday night with another round of rain possible on Monday as a second cold front arrives. These showers should be lighter in nature.

Monday will still be a humid day with temperatures climbing into the low 80s.
Cooler drier air will arrive on Tuesday, allowing temperatures to fall into the upper 50s.

A record could be broken on Wednesday morning, as temperatures fall into the low 50s. The record for July 16th is 49 degrees in 1945!

Temperatures will rebound back into the low to mid 80s by the weekend, feeling more like summer.
