Isolated Storms Possible Tonight

Posted By · June 21, 2014 at 4:20 pm

We’ve had a great first day of summer with temps in the 80s and plenty of sunshine, but tonight, isolated storms will be possible.

Temps remain in the 80s through 9pm with the chance for an isolated shower or storm developing after that time.

saturday night

An isolated storm may be strong or severe.  The Storm Prediction Center has west central Indiana included in a risk area for severe storms.  We can’t rule out an isolated cell that could contain damaging wind or hail.

On FutureTrak13 you can see the showers and storms pushing closer to the metro by 11pm.

It’s the first day of summer, and the weather is cooperating!

Highs will reach the mid 80s today with mainly dry conditions.  The humidity will continue, so if you are spending your day outside, remember to hydrate with plenty of water.  Poolside?  Sunscreen is needed!

First Day of Summer & Isolated Evening Storm Chances

Posted By · June 21, 2014 at 6:00 am

The weekend is here, and today is the first official day of summer.  Today should be mainly dry with partly cloudy skies, but tonight an isolated shower or storm will move into the forecast.

Highs will reach the mid 80s today.  If you’re spending time outside, don’t forget the sunscreen!


Visibility readings are fluctuating this morning, and at times could fall below ½ mile, so use care as you head out.  The fog will lift by mid morning.

If you have plans tonight, an isolated shower or thunderstorm will be possible.

plans tonight

We are watching a storm complex over Nebraska and Iowa that could impact us tonight.  Late this evening/tonight portions of Central Indiana are under a “slight” risk for severe storms.  An isolated strong or severe storm may be possible for central Indiana late this evening or tonight.  Damaging wind and hail are the top threats.

saturday severe

Most of the day is dry on FutureTrak13, it’s after 7pm that the chance for a shower or storm moves in.

Tonight we will drop to the upper 60s with the chance for a shower or storm as previously mentioned.

Those isolated chances will carry over into Sunday as highs again reach the mid 80s.  A shower or storm is possible anywhere, but the day doesn’t look to be a washout.


We are already above average for rain for the month of June.  So far, just shy of 5” of rain has fallen at the Indianapolis Airport.

We’ll add to that this week as off and on wet weather continues Monday and Tuesday with drier cooler air by the middle of the week.

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.


With clear skies and low humidity tonight temps fall into the low 50s.  That will make a cool start for Saturday morning, but we’ll eventually warm to 80 with sunny skies.


Father’s Day looks great!  Early Sunday morning temps will be around 60, and by the afternoon a high of 85 with partly cloudy skies.
