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.

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.

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

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.

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.
