70s Today… Rain on the Way

A beautiful afternoon is ahead for Central Indiana.   We’ll hit highs in the low 70s this afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds.  It’s not a record breaking temperature, that record is 80 from 1974.

tuesday today planner

It will be breezy today with winds out of the south up to 20mph, but it will still be very nice, even into this evening.

tuesday tonight

After midnight rain chances increase, and we have scattered showers in the forecast tomorrow.

tuesday wednesday early futuretrak

Those showers aren’t expected to be a washout, and temperatures will still warm up nicely.  In fact, Wednesday we could tie or set a new record for the high temperature.  We are forecasting a high of 73, the record is 72 from 1878.

tuesday wednesday plannertuesday wednesday futuretraktuesday thursday futuretrak

The heaviest rain is expected to arrive Wednesday night into Thursday.  Thursday heavy rain will be likely.  By Friday night 1-2” of rain will be possible, with some isolated areas picking up, up to 3” of rain.  The warm temperatures are sticking around in the forecast through the weekend, but so is the rain.

Scattered showers will remain in the 7 day through Monday.  Our average high this time of year is 48, and our average low is 30, so we are well above that.

Strong Winds & Mild Temperatures

It’s a warm and windy day across Central Indiana.  A Wind Advisory is in effect until 7pm, because of wind gusts up to 50 mph. 

friday wind

Sustained winds up to 30 mph will be likely.  As mentioned, gusts will be even higher.  Temperatures will be warm and mild topping out in the low to mid 60s. 

 friday 5pmfriday 10pm

Tonight wind gusts up to 30 mph will still be possible as lows drop to the mid 40s under mostly clear skies.

The weekend will start sunny and warm, with highs in the middle 60s.  There is a chance for scattered showers Sunday.  At this point it looks like the rain will more than likely be more widespread during the morning hours.  Highs on Sunday will still be mild, in the mid to upper 50s.  Cooler air is back for next week, with highs in the 40s Monday through Thursday.

From Snow to Late Week Warmth

Highs will reach the mid 30s today with cloudy skies.  Tonight lows fall into the mid to upper 20s with mostly cloudy skies.  Some fog may develop.  Because temps fall below freezing, we could see re-freezing on area roads, so a few slick spots will be possible tomorrow morning. 

monday today

Tuesday’s forecast calls for a chance of a wintry mix in the afternoon.  This is something we are watching closely.  As of right now the greatest chance for some light snow would be south of I-70, but this is something we will have to update tonight and tomorrow morning.  Highs Tuesday will reach the mid 30s. 

Much warmer weather is right around the corner with the 40s returning by Thursday and the 60s by Friday!  As of now, the weekend looks warm and mild with highs in the 50s and a chance of rain by Sunday.

Snow Chances & Bitter Cold Start to the Weekend

Temperature are in the teens and twenties across Central Indiana this morning, it’s not as cold as 24 hours ago.

We will be watching the radar this morning.  An area of light snow will continue to push into Central Indiana.  It could be enough for a light coating of snow to make portions of the morning commute slick.

Highs today will reach the mid 20s with more chances for snow moving in this afternoon and evening.  Less than an inch of snow is expected.  Wind gusts up to 25mph out of the NW are likely today into tonight, and that could reduce visibility under snow showers.
