Heavy Rain & Strong/Severe Storms Today

Posted By · September 10, 2014 at 11:07 am

Pockets of heavy rain and thunderstorms will be around throughout the day, but it’s as we get into the afternoon/evening that the threat for severe storms goes up.

All of Central Indiana is under a “slight” risk for severe storms.

wednesday severe threat

The biggest threats are damaging wind, and flooding due to heavy rain.  Most of Central Indiana is under a flash flood watch until late tonight.  Rain totals could amount to 1-2″ of rain with some isolated areas picking up, up to 3″ of rain.

The timing for strong to severe storms is 4pm to 12am.  The rain and clouds cover we have right now, could help to keep the severe threat down.

Good morning!  We’re off to another mild and muggy start with partly cloudy skies to kick off your Wednesday morning.  Temps across Central Indiana are in the 60s and 70s, and with dew points around 70 degrees, the heavy sticky air will continue today.  The latest satellite radar shows a few clouds across our area, but we’re dry.  Patchy fog is possible this morning, especially in areas that received heavy rain Tuesday afternoon.  For the past two days we’ve hit 90 degrees, today we should only top out in the mid 80s with afternoon showers and storms developing.

Pollen levels remain high today and through the weekend.

If you have plans this afternoon or tonight, scattered showers and storms will be possible, very similar to what we’ve seen the last couple of days.  Just like the last few days not everyone will see rain.  Some storms that develop may be strong/severe, but widespread severe weather is not expected.

Tonight temps fall into the 60s and 70s with an isolated shower or storm.

Tomorrow afternoon storm chances will develop again as temps stay in the mid 80s.

Isolated Heavy Showers Today with More on the Way

Posted By · August 16, 2014 at 10:34 am

Not everyone is seeing rain, but those who are, could see heavy downpours at times today.

Showers and an isolated storm will be possible today as temps reach the mid 70s.  A few spots that don’t see rain could pop into the upper 70s, but with lack of sunshine we won’t be warming up much.

It’s not a washout of the evening, but keep the rain gear handy.  The roof to Lucas Oil Stadium will more than likely be closed for tonight’s game.

Sunday, more scattered showers and storms are possible, adding up today’s rain through Monday night at 6pm up to 1/2″ or even up to 1″ of rain will be possible.
