Rain Chances Monday

Posted By · October 19, 2014 at 4:47 pm

After some morning sunshine, clouds have increased Sunday afternoon.  This mostly cloudy trend will continue Sunday night.  With cloudy skies in the forecast Sunday night, it won’t be as chilly overnight.  We are forecasting lows in the middle 40s.

The clouds are associated with a weak weather system that will bring the chance for a few showers to central Indiana on Monday.  Scattered showers are in the Monday forecast, with highs near 60 degrees.

RPM2 RPM3 PLANNER MONDAY

This weather system will start to move east on Tuesday.  Clouds will linger on Tuesday and it will be a cool day, with highs in the upper 50s.

Patchy frost is possible on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, with low temperatures forecast in the middle and upper 30s.  Highs on Wednesday and Thursday will only be in the range of 55-60 degrees, but a milder change is on thye way for the rest of the week.

Highs will be in the 60s, with sunshine on Friday and Saturday and near 70 on Sunday.

Chilly Start To What Becomes A Brighter Day

Posted By · October 19, 2014 at 5:22 am

Lingering low clouds and a north wind have kept the central Indiana from a widespread frost overnight.  Though some patchy frost remains possible in areas that do see clearing and where temperatures drop into the middle 30s.

SATRAD RPM COLTS

Either way it will be a chilly start for Colts tailgating, the Covered Bridge Festival, leaf viewing in Brown County or whatever else you have planned before noon.  Clouds this morning will slowly, but surely lessen and today eventually becomes brighter and certainly drier than Saturday.  As a result afternoon highs return to the upper 50s.

RPM 2 PLANNER AFTERNOON PLANNER EVENING RPM 3

Clouds increase again overnight in response to an approaching cold front and showers are possible by the time you wake Monday morning.  We’ll have a mix of sun and showers Monday afternoon with highs in the 60s

RPM 4 PLANNER MONDAY

Much of our weather this week will greatly be influenced by a developing storm in the northeastern U.S.  This will keep the wind predominantly from the north which results in cooler than normal temperatures until next weekend.

A string of mostly sunny days begins Wednesday and carries into next weekend when highs climb back into the middle 60s.  This dry spell is perfect timing for Harvest 2014!  Have a great Sunday – Sean Ash

Posted By · October 18, 2014 at 5:04 am

Happy Saturday morning!  We’re waking up to a mostly cloudy start to the day, and that will continue as we go into the afternoon.  Highs will only reach the low to mid 50s today with a chance for spotty showers.  The day won’t be a washout, but a few rain showers are in the forecast.

Our “normal” high this time of year is 65, so we’ll be well below that today as clouds help to keep temperatures low.

Saturday Showers and Frosty Sunday

Posted By · October 17, 2014 at 4:09 pm
Our one mild day was today.  High temperatures made it to near 70 degrees.  The weather pattern is already changing for the cooler.  It will be a mostly cloudy and breezy Friday night, with evening temperatures falling into the 50s by 9pm.  Winds will be WNW 10-20mph.

It will be a cooler weekend, with clouds and a few showers possible late Friday night and Saturday.  Highs on Saturday will only be in the range of 50-55 degrees.

PLANNER FRIDAY

Skies will clear Saturday night and the core of a cooler air mass will be over central Indiana.  Frost is possible on Sunday morning.  Expect mostly sunny skies on Sunday, with highs 55-60 degrees.

Next week will kick-off with a few showers on Monday and the chance for a few lingering showers on Tuesday.  Another round of cool air is in the forecast for the middle part of next week.  This will mean morning temperatures in the 30s Wednesday through Friday.  Highs will be in the 50s for much of next week and about 10 degrees cooler than average.  The rain chances end on Tuesday and the rest of the week will be dry and cool.

Big Weekend, Big Changes

Posted By · October 17, 2014 at 3:23 am

Hang on to your hat! A windy day, but a wonderful day, weather wise in Indiana. The average high is the mid 60s and today, we will warm up into the upper 60s around the state. Tonight, for Operation Football, bring along a blanket or jacket, it will feel pretty brisk out there.

Look for a new surge of cool air arrives tonight into Saturday morning. This air mass riding over Lake Michigan will drive down low cloudiness during the day Saturday, and possibly some lake effect sprinkles/rain showers. That would include the I.U. and Taylor University homecoming celebrations as well as the Covered Bridge Festival in Parke County.

Clouds clear Saturday night and the wind goes calm as high pressure settles over the Ohio Valley. That means temps drop to the lower to mid 30s Sunday morning and patchy frost at the very least. If this trend continues you can expect Frost Advisories to be issued for Sunday morning.

Colts tailgating looks chilly early in the morning but we’ll enjoy lots of sun Sunday. Kickoff temperatures will be in the mid-50s. Let’s hope for a win against the Bengals!

Friday Sunshine Followed By Frost Potential This Weekend

Posted By · October 16, 2014 at 5:00 pm

Hang in there central Indiana.  The pesky overcast will slowly, but surely, depart overnight and set up our brightest day of the week Friday.  Between now and then expect plenty of gray and slightly warmer temperatures in the lower 60s despite the lack of sunshine.

SATRAD

You don’t have to go far to the west to hit 70 degrees today, and that warmth will ride a strengthening southwest wind into the state.  The upper level system that’s delivering our dreary stretch continues its eastward movement and will take the cloud deck with it.

OHV TEMPS REG SATRAD REG TEMPS RPM

The breeze picks up tonight into Friday morning… helping keep overnight lows in the lower 50s despite the lack of an insulating low cloud deck.  Expect a bright morning commute and rapid rise into the 60s by noon.  Highs tomorrow will near 70 and some locations may actually climb into the 70s.

Enjoy the one day warm up as a new surge of cool air arrives Friday night into Saturday morning.  This air mass riding over Lake Michigan will drive down low cloudiness during the day Saturday, and possibly some lake effect sprinkles/rain showers.

Colts tailgating looks chilly early in the morning but we’ll bask in a good dose of sun Sunday.  Kickoff temperatures will be in the mid-50s.  Showers return Monday along a new cold front that keeps us cool much of next week.  Have a great evening – Sean Ash
