Foggy Start, Mild Afternoon

Posted By · November 5, 2014 at 3:04 am

Fog in the area this morning as we start off a mainly dry day after a damp afternoon yesterday. Some clouds early, but some peeks of sun are possible heading into early afternoon… with highs topping out around 57.

An upper air disturbance slides into Indiana tomorrow, so look for a chance for rain to reappear..  Flurries remain possible into Friday morning with a gusty northwest wind providing chilly conditions to finish the week.

Look for these disturbances to continue to pop in every other day with a cool weekend ahead. Remember, the average high is 59 degrees.

Long range data continues to support a cold air outbreak in the eastern U.S. next week.  If this verifies we could be staring down several days with highs in the 30s/low 40s and lows in the 20s.

Enjoy It While It Lasts!

Posted By · September 30, 2014 at 3:20 am

Enjoy this beautiful day. It will take a while to warm up, but with sunshine and a plesant north wind, we’ll reach the low 70s this afternoon.

More 80 degree warmth is on the way for Wednesday and Thursday.  A stronger weather system arrives later Thursday, bringing some wet weather Thursday with some heavier rain, possibly Thursday night.  Much cooler air is on the way too.

Friday will be cloudy and damp, with highs in the 60s.  With more clouds than sun and the core of the cooler air over central Indiana on Saturday, high temperatures will only be in the range of 55-60 degrees.

Morning temperatures will drop into the upper 30s on Sunday morning and highs will only reach the lower 60s on Sunday afternoon.

Summer In September

Posted By · September 26, 2014 at 3:18 am

Can this possibly be September? At a time when the average high usually struggles to reach 73, we are in store for an above average, dry, beautiful weekend and for that matter, most of next week. Look for a high today to reach 79 with some of you hitting the 80 degree mark. The calendar says autumn, but this will be a late August-like next several days.

DaypartOPERATION FOOTBALL

The weekend forecast includes more sunshine and highs near 80 degrees too.  In fact, we don’t notice a change in this quiet weather pattern until maybe Thursday of next week.

We will be tracking a transition to a colder, more active weather pattern.  The active part will come first, as rain chances return toward the end of next week.  The chill will follow.  We will keep you updated on the timing of this big weather pattern change, but until then enjoy the sunshine and 80 degrees.

Great Today, Storms Wednesday

Posted By · September 9, 2014 at 3:05 am

Look for another cool morning in Indiana, with temperatures running up to 5 degrees cooler than the same time yesterday. Despite the chill, we still look to see a really nice day with some sunshine and a high in the low 80s. Enjoy the dry weather, because things change….a lot….Wednesday

There could actually be two rounds of storms tomorrow. The first round will be in the morning and the second will be late afternoon through Wednesday evening. We are under a slight risk for severe weather on Wednesday, so stay tuned for updates. Make sure you have the WTHR weather app loaded in your smart phone.

That second round of storms will be associated with a cold front and it will get chilly for the end of the week. Highs by Friday will only be near 70 degrees. Highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s are in the forecast for the weekend.

Beautiful Start, Midweek Storms

Posted By · September 8, 2014 at 3:17 am

What a start to our day today. Temps continue to be cool and the children and the bus stop may need a light jacket this morning. By the afternoon, under sunshine, we’ll warm up to the upper 70s today and the low 80s by Tuesday.

We’re still looking at Wednesday for our next chance of rain and storms… with a slight risk of severe weather in Central Indiana . At this point, the best chance for storms is during the day, evening and early Thursday.

The cold front triggering the storms brings in the coldest air of the season… and coldest air since mid-May.  Temperatures late week into next weekend will be 10 to 15 degrees below normal which equates to lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s.  It will really feel like Autumn by the weekend.

Severe storms did damage to several houses in Albany in Delaware County.

Wet Morning In Indiana

Posted By · September 2, 2014 at 1:58 am

Wet pavement for our morning rush hour in Indiana this morning. The rain started moving in to the western part of the state at about 1 this morning and now just about everyone has recieved some rain.  The rain moves along with the front and by afternoon, we’ll see some sunshine and a high of 83.

Higher heat and humidity return for the middle to end of the week, with highs in the range of temps in the upper 80s.

A stray storm is possible on Thursday, with the better chance for scattered storms arriving on Friday.

If you are looking for some cooler weather, hang in there, temperatures drop to the 70s for highs this weekend and into next week.

The Road To Labor Day

Posted By · August 26, 2014 at 3:08 am

Looks like we are not budging much in this Summer weather pattern. Even though temperatures will fluctuate the next few days, there is very little change in this patter.  This means more heat, high humidity and storm chances through at least the start of the Labor Day weekend.

There is fog in Central Indiana this morning and it looks like the wet ground and lack of wind will make visibility poor in a few spots.

Temperatures will be in the upper 80sthis afternoon.  There will be the chance for a few afternoon storms on Tuesday.

Scattered storms are in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday, with highs in the middle and upper 80s.

Looks like it will be warm and sticky at Raceway Park for the NHRA US Nationals this week and into the weekend.
