More Showers & Storms Today… Mainly Dry Weekend

Posted By · June 20, 2014 at 3:24 am

Live Doppler 13 Radar is showing scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms in central Indiana this morning.  The activity is pushing east/northeast.  Heavy rain will be likely under individual cells.  Current temps are in the low 70s across the state, and some patchy fog may be possible this morning.  Thick fog will be more likely where the heaviest rain fell within the last 24-48 hours. 

Highs will reach 85 today with scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Heavy rain was found in storms yesterday.  Check out the monthly totals on the SkyTrak Weather Bug Network.

The day won’t be a complete washout, but scattered showers and storms are likely, especially as they redevelop for the afternoon/evening.  We’re not expecting severe weather, however, gusty winds and small hail will be possible in thunderstorms that develop.

Morning Rain… Afternoon Sunshine

Posted By · June 13, 2014 at 3:25 am

Light rain is on Doppler 13 radar this morning.  Overnight a few heavy pockets of rain moved through with rumbles of thunder, but now only spotty showers are left on Indiana’s most powerful live radar.  This morning we will primarily see rain along and south of I-70 during the morning commute.  It will slowly push east this morning, leaving mostly sunny skies for the afternoon.

The normal high this time of year is 82, the normal low is 62, we’ll be well below that today and tonight.  As the clouds break and reveal mostly sunny skies, temps will warm into the upper 60s by noon, and by 3pm a high of 73.

Tonight’s a perfect night to catch the Indians in action.  By 7pm temps are in the low 70s, 69 by 8pm and 66 by 9pm.
