The holiday weekend is here and if I had the power to change the forecast I would. It will not be a sunny and hot Fourth of July, but at least it starts clear.
If will be a great Friday night, with clear skies. Temperatures will fall into the middle 50s, for a mild start to Saturday. If you have outdoor plans on Saturday, the weather will cooperate. There will be some sun and some clouds, with highs 75-80 degrees.
We are tracking a developing weather system that will bring the threat for heavy rain to Indiana. You may need to change your outdoor plans to indoor plans on Sunday. Here is the timeline for a soggy Sunday.
Rainfall potential of 1-3 inches is possible, with the heaviest rain falling Sunday night into Monday morning. We will keep you updated in the timing and exacting where the heaviest rain will fall, as we get new information.
It does look like the rain will move out in time for some Fourth of July fun later Monday. Highs will be near 80 on Monday. 90 degree heat is back by Wednesday.
The rain has moved out of Central Indiana, and now we’re setting up for a beautiful afternoon.
Highs will reach the upper 70s and low 80s today with skies continuing to clear.
Tonight will be comfortable with skies clearing and temps falling into the 60s by late tonight.
We’ll have a cool and comfortable start tomorrow morning with lows falling into the mid 50s. Tomorrow afternoon we’ll have a great day with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 70s and low 80s.
Sunday our forecast will be changing with scattered showers and thunderstorms moving in. As of right now, it appears the heaviest rain will be Sunday night into Monday morning, with off and on showers and storms Monday too.
Stay tuned for changes to the track of this system, if it changes at all, and, it probably will, our forecast will be updated with new rain totals. The highest rain totals will be south of I-70 with the latest look.
Check back with us often this weekend as we continue to update the forecast and pinpoint the timing and rain totals as we get closer to the showers and storms moving our way.
This afternoon will be another dry comfortable day across Central Indiana as temperatures warm into the low 80s with partly cloudy skies.
This evening will be pleasant as well, but you’ll notice an increase in cloud cover.
After midnight into tomorrow morning a few showers and even a rumble of thunder will be possible.
We are expecting to see dry weather as we move into the afternoon and highs reach the low 80s.
Saturday will be dry with highs in the low 80s again.
Sunday we will be watching a storm system to the west. We are still monitoring the track, but it could make for scattered showers and storms late Sunday and even into Monday, with heavy rain at times. This is something we will continue to monitor, and keep you posted on.
The heat builds into the upper 80s and low 90s starting Tuesday into Wednesday.
It will be cool and clear overnight, with lows in the 50s for the second night in a row. Thursday will be mostly sunny and a bit warmer, with highs in the lower 80s.
We are still tracking a fast moving weather system for Thursday night and early Friday. Right now we are forecasting a few showers and maybe a rumble of thunder early Friday morning. The rest of Friday will be dry and warm, with highs in the lower 80s. This is great news for Friday night plans, as you start your long holiday weekend.
The end of the holiday weekend forecast is tricky. We are tracking a developing weather system that will bring heavy rain to Kansas, Missouri and Illinois this holiday weekend. Part of that weather system will impact Indiana. There is still some degree of uncertainty to timing and how much rain. As you make your outdoor plans for later Sunday and Monday, check back with us. This is the timeframe for the better chance for rain. Here is the an early look at the development of that storm system out to our west through Saturday afternoon.
I mentioned the uncertainty in timing and rainfall potential. Here is a look at the GFS and the Euro…just 2 of the longer range models that help us forecast the weather. You can see the GFS has higher totals for the northern part of the state and the Euro has the higher totals south. This system is still developing and we will keep you updated on timing to help you make your holiday plans.
90 degree heat is still in the forecast for the middle part of next week.
It was a cool start in Central Indiana this morning with temps in the 40s and 50s!
We will remain dry for the rest of the day and into tonight with low humidity. Highs will reach the upper 70s to low 80s today.
Overnight temps will fall into the mid to upper 50s, it will be a very nice start tomorrow morning, but not as cool as what we woke up to this morning. Highs on Thursday will warm into the low 80s as we start a warm up closer to our average high of 85.
Thursday will be another dry day, with rain chances moving in for early Friday morning. As of right now, rain looks to be around for the morning commute Friday, then we’ll have a dry afternoon.
Saturday will be dry, with rain chances returning late Sunday into Monday for the 4th of july. We’ll be watching the holiday weekend forecast closely as you plan your outdoor activities and fireworks watching. Right now it looks like we could see some heavy rain, but it’s too early to say exactly where that will be in our area.
Welcome to a brief and early glimpse at fall. It’s a cool morning and we are on the way to a marvelous Wednesday, a day that will be sunny and mild, with a high around 78 degrees.
We will gradually warm back into the lower and middle 80s for the end of the week and the Independence Day weekend. The average high is 85 and will be back to average by Sunday and Monday.
What about rain? Scattered showers look likely Friday morning during the morning rush hour. At this time, we’re looking at a system on the Fourth Of July that could stay south of us, but we’re leaving the chance for showers in during Monday. 90 degree heat returns next week.
