Scattered showers are in the forecast today, especially along and south of I-70.
Off and on rain is expected as temps reach the mid to upper 60s today.
Tonight, scattered showers are still possible as temps fall into the low 50s.
Monday won’t be a washout, but there is a chance of showers in the morning and afternoon.
We kick off the work week in the 70s… and our next chance of storms moves in Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Truly a feast or famine weather set-up over Central Indiana. Areas southwest of Indianapolis dealt with rain most of the day, and areas northeast of the metro enjoyed temperatures in the 70s.
Radar rainfall estimates show how much difference 20-25 miles made today…with some 24-hour estimates exceeding a half-inch. South of I-70 will have the greatest rain chances for the remainder of the weekend, but another disturbance will pivot a shield for northward tonight that “may” make it to the Indy metro area.
This disturbance and associated rain wave should rotate out of Central Indiana after dawn, and allow for several hours of dry-time south of I-70 Sunday. The thick deck of clouds tonight will keep temps in the 50s area wide. Clouds thin enough Sunday north of Indianapolis to allow highs to shoot into the 70s again… while thicker overcast and rain showers keeps the southern third of the state much cooler in the 50s!
Though the center of the much advertised cold-core low will be hundreds of miles south of us…it will still influence our weather daily into the middle of the week. Though I don’t expect widespread rain Monday through Wednesday, there is enough weakness to allow spotty showers or storms to pop during daytime heating.
But notice rain chances are only 20-30% in my latest 7 day forecast. Friday looks like the wettest day of the week, and we’re tracking a cold front that has potential impacts on opening weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Our weekend forecast includes chances for rain… but not a washout.
Dry conditions are expected for the Mini Marathon! Good luck runners!
Temps will reach the mid to upper 60s today with the chance for an isolated shower.
Tonight, an isolated shower is possible with temps in the low 50s.
Sunday, scattered showers are likely, especially along and south of I-70. At this point, a washout is not expected, but keep the rain gear handy.
Next week we warm into the 70s with a **slight** chance for rain each day. Storms move back into the forecast starting Friday.
Our computer models are pushing our low pressure area south so the heaviest rain will stay south of us. Right now the weekend looks more dry than wet. We’ll have a few showers but no major thunderstorms or severe weather.
