Some Morning Fog With Dropping Muggy Meter Tuesday

Posted By · August 10, 2015 at 10:30 pm

Downpours and storms are gone and the overnight focus shifts to the potential for areas of fog.  While there should be enough to save the region from widespread dense fog… visibility of 1-2 miles is possible in spots during the Tuesday morning commute.

BUS STOP RPM TUESDAY 7AM COLTS

The bigger story tomorrow will be a steady north-northwesterly wind that delivers less humid and highs mainly in the upper 70s.  We still believe there may be a few sprinkles or quick-moving isolated showers late day and early evening… but most backyards stay dry.

INDIANS PLANNER

Breezy conditions can be expected at the Indiana State Fair, Colts Camp and the Victory Field Tuesday evening as the Indianapolis Indians return home.

RPM TUESDAY 4PM TEMP TREND

This is all part of an air mass transition that sends down a bit below the average high of 84 degrees… but the drop in humidity will be much more noticeable.  This also translates into comfortable overnight lows later this.

MUGGY METER STATE FAIR RPM WEDNESDAY 6AM

We’ll be fully entrenched in late spring/early fall -like air by Wednesday afternoon… and the stage is set for the great weather both Wednesday and Thursday.  Lows both days drop into the 50s with highs 75 to near 80 and ample sunshine!  Make outdoor plans accordingly.

Some Evening Storms Before Less Humid Air Arrives

Posted By · August 10, 2015 at 4:38 pm

A few downpours continue across Central Indiana along a cold front with downpours, lightning and gusty wind primary threats until sunset.  Away from storm you can’t on sweating it out through oppressive humidity levels with tropical dew points in the 70s.

PLANNER EVENING DEWPOINT

 

The passage of a cold front late this evening shifts the wind to the north-northwest and delivers a refreshing change just in time for the Tuesday morning commute.  A steady northerly breeze tomorrow, combined with intervals of low clouds in the afternoon/evening, keeps temperatures mainly in the upper 70s.

MUGGY METER 2 MUGGY METER PLANNER MORNING RPM TUESDAY 8AM

A secondary cold front currently over Wisconsin brings even drier air to the state Tuesday night into Wednesday.  Strong sunshine undercutting cooler air aloft Tuesday afternoon may trigger isolated “instability” (due to temperature differential from surface to 5-10,000 feet) sprinkles/showers.  These will be very spotty, quick-moving and won’t require you to cancel plans to attend the State Fair or return of the Indianapolis Indians.

Scattered Downpours Monday But Feeling Like Fall Later This Week

Posted By · August 9, 2015 at 10:53 pm

While many didn’t see a drop of rain Sunday evening, some areas picked up a quick inch… with radar rainfall estimates on the Blackford/Jay county line indicating possibly 3-5″ in three hours.  That’s indicative of the “juicy” air mass over Indiana and why anything on radar between now and Monday afternoon has tropcial downpour potential.

RAIN ESTIMATES

Additional scattered showers and locally heavy rain remain possible later tonight into the Monday morning commute… though it’s impossible to determine what backyards get wet.

PLANNER TONIGHT HRRR 5AM HRRR 11AM

But everyone will suffer through the very muggy air that feeds the localized downpours. Dew points remain in the tropical range and that means air conditioners get a work with lows not dropping much below 70 degrees.

The Muggy Meter remains oppressive Monday and the arrival of a cold front, plus daytime heating, triggers scattered showers and storms during the day.

PLANNER MONDAY MONDAY 4PM MUGGY METER TEMP TREND TUESDAY 4PM

A pleasant pattern change provides a taste of fall mid-week. Expect lows in the 50s Wednesday and highs in the 70s! Low temperatures Thursday morning may drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s followed by a bright, mild afternoon near 80 degrees. Dry weather looks to hold into next weekend but temperatures warm back into the mid and possibly upper 80s Saturday & Sunday.

Areas of rain and occasionally heavy thunderstorms impact Central Indiana this evening, at times tonight, and periodically throughout the day Monday.  It should be noted there will still be dry time to enjoy but definitely not much enjoyment in the oppressive air mass in place.

DEWPOINTS

 

 

Dew points remain in the tropical range and help feed downpours from time to time.  The Muggy Meter remains very uncomfortable tomorrow before refreshing air returns Tuesday.

Air conditioners get a work out tonight in the humid air.  Lows won’t drop much below 70 degrees.  There will be a 50% chance of precipitation and storms the next 24 hours.  Much like today, Monday offers some time to work outside, go the fair or perhaps make it to Colts Camp at Anderson University.

Great Start To The Weekend But Some Storms Before Its Over

Posted By · August 7, 2015 at 4:42 pm

The weather today is as good as it gets for early August.  Sunshine, low humidity, comfortable highs near 80 degrees and a light wind in what will be the best day until the middle of next week.

KLIPSCH PLANNER LAWN PLANNER PLANNER EVENING

Clear and pleasant this evening for outdoor concerts at Klipsch, The Lawn At White River and the Indiana State Fair.  Have fun as there will be no worries about the weather.  Comfortable tonight but likely not as cool as the lows this morning that were in the 50s.  We’re expecting lows mainly in the low to mid 60s.

RPM SATURDAY 6AM RPM SATURDAY 10PM RPM SATURDAY 3pm

Most will wake to sunshine Saturday, but a quick-moving disturbance brings an increase in cloud cover and possibly a few passing sprinkles every now and then.  Humidity gradually increases and the highs in the mid-80s Saturday will feel warmer as a result.

PLANNER TOMORROW

We continue to eye Sunday for the return of storms to Central Indiana… though it should be noted at this point we don’t envision all day rains.  In fact it could possibly work out where the greatest coverage of storms will be mid to late morning from a weakening overnight storm complex.  Definitely don’t cancel any plans but realize rain, lightning, and gusty wind can impact outdoor events during the day Sunday.

RPM SUNDAY 8AM RPM SUNDAY 10AM RPM SUNDAY 1PM SUNDAY PLANNER 7DAY

Monday also offers scattered storm chances but then a quick transition back to tranquil weather for the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley next week.  We’ll see several days with abundant sunshine, comfortable humidity, lows in the 50s and highs 75 to near 80.  Check back for updates – Sean Ash

Great Weather To Start The Indiana State Fair

Posted By · August 6, 2015 at 10:40 pm

You can certainly feel the difference in the air mass this evening.  Temperatures have already dropped into the lower 60s and a pleasant northeasterly wind continues to blow across Central Indiana.  We expect mostly clear conditions, though some mid to high level clouds will occasionally race across the sky.

Lows drop into the 50s and light jacket may be needed for the kids at the bus stop in the morning.  It’s a picture-perfect beginning to the Indiana State Fair with low humidity, sunshine and warm highs in the lower 80s!  Have fun but certainly pack the sunglasses and sunscreen with high UV rays due to the dry air and mainly clear conditions.

You really can’t ask for a better day for Colts Camp, the State Fair, Tim McGraw or anything else you have planned.  Enjoy and nice weather kicks off the weekend too!

Clearing And Cooler Tonight

Posted By · August 6, 2015 at 4:52 pm

As advertised it’s been a soggy in Central Indiana with locations south of I-70 picking up over one inch of rainfall.  Showers and drizzle continue a few more hours across the southeastern half of the state, but a rain/clouds diminish this evening for a decent finish to the day.

RAIN AMOUNTS TEMP TREND

Under the overcast temperatures haven’t budged much, but up north it’s a different world.  Decent sunshine captured on the Wolcott WeatherBug camera and temperatures firmly in the 70s.  Meanwhile the gray hangs tough in Connersville and points to the southeast.

TEMPS WOLCOTT CONNERSVILLE PLANNER EVENING

Late day sunshine should push temperatures briefly into the 70s for locations that have been unseasonably cool in the 60s much of the day.  A general clearing trend occurs toward sunset and beyond to set the stage for a pleasant night.  Lows drop into the 50s away from Indy’s heat island that likely leaves the city near 60 Friday morning.  Either way… open the windows tonight to let in some fresh air.

PLANNER TONIGHT LOWS TONIGHT

Though patchy fog is possible tonight due to the saturated ground, most wake to sunshine tomorrow and we’re in store for a picture-perfect beginning the Indiana State Fair.  Pack the sunglasses and expect warm afternoon highs in the low 80s with comfortable humidity.

Soggy Set Up Thursday

Posted By · August 5, 2015 at 4:34 pm

Good Wednesday evening! As anticipated many areas are enjoying hazy sunshine with just a few isolated showers on Live Doppler 13 Radar at this hour. Radar trends indicate any shower action should remain mainly south of I-70. But make no mistake…a round of soaking rain is heading toward Central Indiana!

COLTS PLANNER

Ideal conditions up at Anderson University for the Colts BBQ Bash Night Practice. Comfortable temperatures in the lower 80s with pleasant humidity. The Colts have tomorrow off and the timing is perfect with rain and storms expected.

 

RPM 8PM TODAY

RPM THURSDAY 1AM

Rain chances ramp up after midnight and latest modeling advertises the I-74/70 corridors for the northern cut off for heaviest totals. Plan on a rather wet commute with potential for flooded roadways. Send the kids to school with rain gear in the morning. The rainfall bulls-eye may occur between Louisville and Indy… where some locations may exceed 2-3″ between midnight and 6pm tomorrow.

RPM THURSDAY 5AM

Temperatures Thursday will be 10-15 degrees below normal where precipitation and clouds linger longer, and this will most likely be in the eastern and southern portions of the viewing area.

Rain and storms diminish late tomorrow afternoon and clouds should clear by 9-10pm. This sets the stage for a great opening weekend of the Indiana State Fair with highs in the 80s. We continue to mention a chance of storms on Sunday but confidence is low at this time. Check back for updates and enjoy the evening – Sean Ash
