Posted By · April 9, 2014 at 4:24 am

Sunshine returns to Central Indiana with temps near 60 today, even warmer weather moves in tomorrow!

Tonight skies will remain mostly clear with temps falling to the low 40s.

Thursday clouds will increase as we head into the afternoon with highs approaching 70!  Winds will pick up for the afternoon with gusts out of the southwest up to 25mph.

Late Thursday evening a chance for showers and thunderstorms will develop.

Friday the chance of rain sticks around, but by Saturday we’re back to sunshine.

Temps stay mild, in the 60s and 70s for the weekend, however, rain chances are sprinkled in.  As we get closer to the weekend we’ll keep you posted on the exact timing of the rain.

By next week, much colder air moves in.

Chilly Start To Wednesday

Posted By · April 8, 2014 at 10:28 pm

It will be a chilly start to Wednesday, with morning temperatures in the 30s.  As the lower atmosphere cools, the moisture left from Tuesday’s rain will condense and may form some patchy Wednesday morning fog.  Expect a mix of sun and clouds on Wednesday afternoon, with highs near 60 degrees.

DAYPART2

It will be near 70 on Thursday.  There is a chance for rain late in the day Thursday.  We will watch this closely.  It is opening day at Victory Field for the Indianapolis Indians.  A few showers are possible on Friday and this weekend.  Right now I think there will be more dry weather than wet weather this weekend, but stay tuned for updates.  The warm-up will last through the weekend, with highs in the 60s and lower 70s.

Afternoon Thundershowers with Hail

Posted By · April 8, 2014 at 3:48 pm

Scattered thundershowers have developed this afternoon.  There is lots of cool air in the upper atmosphere helping destabilize the atmosphere.  This cool pool of air is also leading to hail producing thundershowers.  We have had several reports of hail across central Indiana.  These thundershowers with hail, lightning and brief heavy rain will last through sunset.  For the latest on Live Doppler 13 Radar, click on it here at wthr.com or from the Skytrak 13 Weather App on your phone.  Skies will clear overnight, with lows in the 30s.  Those areas getting rain now, may have some fog in the morning.  It will be near 60 degrees on Wednesday with some sun.

More Rain Today, but Starting to Dry Out

Posted By · April 8, 2014 at 4:16 am

Highs will reach the mid 50s today with the chance for a spotty shower or thunderstorm.  We are not expecting rain to be as widespread or as heavy as it was yesterday.  Lowland flooding may be continuing thanks to the saturated ground.

Tonight the clouds break and temps fall into the upper 30s.

Wednesday begins our warm up with highs in the low 60s, and by Thursday we could hit 70!

We do have rain chances late Thursday night, and more rounds of rain possible Sunday and Monday.

Heavy rain continues to fall north and west of Indianapolis.  Rainfall estimates are nearing 1″ from Frankfort to Lafayatte to Crawfordsville.  Watch for lowland flooding this evening.  The steady rain won’t end until after midnight.  Remember our creeks, rivers and streams are still running high after heavy rain late last week.
