Stormy & Humid Today, Fall Like Weather Tomorrow

Posted By · July 14, 2014 at 7:14 am

Today will be a warm and muggy day across Central Indiana with highs in the 80s.  Scattered showers and storms will likely develop as a cold front moves through the state late this afternoon into tonight.

Part of the state is under a “slight” risk for severe storms.  Damaging wind is our top threat, along with heavy rain and frequent lightning.

Here’s a look at FutureTrak13 estimating when the line of showers and storms moves through.

Sunday Afternoon Weather Update

Posted By · July 13, 2014 at 12:47 pm

It’s a warm and muggy day across Central Indiana, and now that we’re heating up, showers and storms could develop this afternoon and evening.

Areas along and south of I-70 are under a slight risk for severe storms this afternoon and evening.  Damaging winds are the top threat, however lightning and heavy rain are a concern as well.

sunday severe

Temps in the 80s and dew points in the 70s are creating a steamy afternoon across Central Indiana.  There is some relief on the way, but not until we watch for a chance of rain and storms this afternoon and evening.

FutureTrak13 shows showers and storms developing in the heat of the day.

sunday 3pm

sunday 6pm

More activity is possible on Monday, but we are not expecting severe storms.

Behind the rain are some of the coolest July temps we’ve seen.

Check out the 7 day forecast, and compare the daily records from the Indianapolis National Weather Service.

July 15th coldest high temp: 70 in 1987.

July 16th coldest high temp: 71 in 1917.

July 17th coldest high temp: 74 in 1925.

While we are not under a “risk” for severe storms, we cannot rule out an isolated severe storm.

There were several reports of 60-70mph+ wind gusts as the storms moved through.

The severe weather is over, and now there’s just a chance of an isolated shower or storm for the afternoon, after the morning rain ends.  Highs will top out in the upper 80s today.

Tonight temps fall into the mid 60s, and by Thursday, highs will only reach the mid 70s.

Much cooler and drier air is in the 7 day forecast as we head towards the Fourth of July holiday!

Mainly Dry Today… Severe Storms Possible Tonight

Posted By · June 30, 2014 at 3:49 am

Happy Monday!  We’re waking up to a muggy morning with temps in the 70s across Central Indiana.  Today could be our first 90 degree day of the year!  So far this year, we have not had a 90 degree day.  Our average first 90 degree day is June 18th.

monday planner

Dew points will remain high today and tomorrow, with a gradual ease later in the week.  What does this mean?  Comfortable less humid days are on the way.  Not today though!  Highs will top out close to 90 today with a 20% chance of an isolated shower or storm.

Storm chances increase tonight.  Central Indiana is under a “slight” risk for severe storms tonight.  Damaging wind and hail are the top concerns.  An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

monday severe

There are isolated storm chances today, but it’s after 10pm tonight that a line of showers and storms is possible.

monday futuretrak

Tonight temps only drop to the mid 70s as we track those showers and storms.

Tomorrow, highs top out in the mid 80s with an isolated chance of a shower or storm.  In the 7 day forecast, much cooler less humid air arrives this week.  Thursday’s high is in the 70s, and as of right now the fourth of July will be dry and mild with a high just shy of 80!
