Cool Night and Wednesday Rain Chances

Posted By · May 19, 2015 at 4:22 pm

It will be a chilly night across central Indiana, with low temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s.  After some early morning sunshine on Wednesday, clouds will increase.  It now looks like there will be enough moisture for a few showers Wednesday afternoon and evening.  With increasing clouds and the chance for rain, temperatures will struggle.  Highs will only be in the range of 55-60 degrees.

LOWS PLANNER

The clouds and rain chances will move out Wednesday night and a gradual warming trend is in the forecast for the rest of the week.  Highs will be in the middle and upper 60s on Thursday, with a mix of sun and clouds.

We are forecasting mostly sunny skies on Friday and Saturday, with highs in the 70s.  This is great weather for Carb Day and the 500 Festival Parade.  We are still analyzing the potential for rain on race day Sunday and Memorial Day.  We will keep you updated on the timing, as we get closer to the holiday weekend.  It will be warmer, with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

The Chill Is Back!

Posted By · May 19, 2015 at 3:28 am
 

Out with the heat and in with the spring chill. Temperatures dropped a lot overnight and now a northwest wind is taking over lowering both temperatures and humidity.

DaypartIndians

Highs today will only be in the middle 60s, with lots of sun and a refreshing breeze. The coolest air will be over central Indiana Tuesday night through Thursday morning. We are looking at lows in the lower and middle 40s tonight and highs on Wednesday will only be near 60 degrees. Low temperatures drop back into the 40s on Wednesday night. Highs on Thursday will be in the range of 65-70 degrees.

Look for sunshine and 70s for Carb Day on Friday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The weekend forecast is a bit more tricky. We are keeping Saturday dry for now, with rain chances arriving either late Saturday night or on Sunday. The 500 Festival Parade is Saturday in downtown Indianapolis and Legends Day takes place at the Speedway. Sunday is the 99th Indy 500.

Dry and Cool Weather Pattern

Posted By · May 18, 2015 at 11:14 pm

The line of rain and storms from Monday evening was associated with a cold front.  There is cooler air behind that front.  Temperatures will fall into the upper 40s and lower 50s by early Tuesday.  Mostly sunny skies are in the Tuesday forecast, with highs in the 60s.

PLANNER

The coolest will be Wednesday morning with temperatures in the range of 40-45 degrees.  Morning sunshine on Wednesday will give way to increasing clouds Wednesday afternoon, with highs only in the range of 60-65 degrees.  The thicker clouds later Wednesday may produce a few spotty showers.

Milder air returns for the end of the week, with highs near 70 on Thursday and in the middle 70s on Friday.  Right now we have Saturday dry for the 500 Festival Parade, with highs in the middle and upper 70s.  Highs will be near 80 degrees for the 99th running of the Indy 500 on Sunday.  There is a chance for rain on Sunday.  Our early analysis has the best chance for rain later in the day and on Memorial Day.  We will keep you updated, as we get closer to the holiday weekend.

We kick off the work week with cloudy skies and muggy weather in Central Indiana.  As we go into the afternoon we could see a shower or thunderstorm, but we’re not looking for a washout this afternoon as temps reach the low 80s.  The normal high this time of year is 73, and the normal low is 53.

It should be comfortable and mainly dry for the Indians game tonight.  However, there is a chance of a shower or thunderstorm, as temps stay pretty mild in the 70s for the game.

We get even cooler Wednesday with highs in the low 60s.

We begin our gradual warm up Thursday with the 70s returning for carb day.  We’re watching the weekend forecast very closely.  As of right now it looks like we could see a chance of rain late Saturday night and a chance of rain on Sunday for race day.  As we get closer to the weekend we’ll time everything out and keep you posted on what to expect.

Changes Coming

Posted By · May 18, 2015 at 3:27 am

Good morning, we’re looking at a warm day with temperatures climbing into the 80s again with a chance for a shower or a thunderstorm. We are also looking to the north and west as a cold front slides toward us.

Daypart

That front will gradually move over central Indiana later today

Cooler and drier air will filter in behind the cold front on Tuesday. Temperatures will only climb into the mid 60s under mostly sunny skies.

The cooler air sticks around for the next couple of days with lows dipping into the mid 40s.

IMS Racing Experience & Fan Track Laps at the track should be perfect, with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 60s. Carb Day looks good as well with partly sunny skies and highs in the low 70s. Conditions look fantastic for the 500 Festival Parade too, with highs in the mid 70s.

At this point we are looking for a chance for thunderstorms Sunday. So, there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms on race day.
