Today is the last day of April and good riddance to it. With 8.59 inches of rain this was the 2nd wettest April in Indy weather history. Fortunately, we close the month on a dry and warm note, with an afternoon high of 81.This is a high temp more like June rather than April. Cooler and damp weather moves in by the end of the end of the work week and expect rain to be around for the Mini Marathon. Temperatures will be in the 40s for the festivities Saturday.
It is a mild, pleasant day so far, but it is April, so things will change later today. Rain in front of a cold front moves in this afternoon and is with us during the entire evening rush hour. As the rain ends early Wednesday morning, we will have picked up more than a half inch of rain.
After the front slides thru, temperatures drop and we will struggle to reach the low 50s tomorrow.
It could be worse…a strip of snow is falling in Kansas and Colorado today!
What a weekend! The Susan G. Komen race participants walked or ran in cold weather this morning, but later today, temperatures warm to 50 degrees, 15 degrees below normal.
Overall, the weather will cooperate with our many events this weekend, from the Little 500 to the Grand Prix at Purdue, from the Country Music Expo, to the Community Shred It Day at Channel 13.
Tonight, look for a Freeze Watch as temps drop to 33 and our Flood Warning looks like it will stay in place into next week.
Just about everyone gets wet today during the morning rush hour as a cluster of scattered showers and thunderstorms moves thru Indiana. Look for a chance for rain and thunderstorms each day until early Friday. The Storm Prediction Center has a slight risk of severe weather in place for areas south of Columbus today and for our entire viewing area Thursday

If April Showers bring May flowers than we will have a pretty month of May in Indiana. Expect a daily chance for rain and thunderstorms through Thursday. By the way, on Thursday we could see some strong thunderstorms.
The April showers and mild temperatures give way to some really cold temps, for this time of year heading into the weekend. Expect highs only in the 40s over the weekend!
Can=you believe the weekend we just enjoyed! Highs were in the 70s with Sunday marking the warmest day fo 2013 so far with a high of 74. We begin this morning with some scattered showers, but overall a mild start for back to school and back to work for so many people. We should break 70 a couple of times this week, but we’ll also see a daily chance for showers. Look for the potential of strong storms Wednesday night and Thursday
So glad to say that Spring is finally rolling back into Indiana. Look for a high of 58 degrees today, just a degree below average for this time of year.
Of course, WTHR is the official weather partner of the Indianapolis Indians and tonight is Opening Night. If the temperature stays below 60 at the first pitch, everyone in attendence will recieve a free ticket to a game in April.
In the meantime, temps soar into the 60s beginning Saturday with a chance for rain from Sunday-Wednesday. I don’t know about you, but I will take spring showers over spring snow any old day!
Remember Easter Sunday? We started off with a dull, misty, cool morning and by the afternoon, the high reached 61 degrees.
Since then, it has been very chilly, but today we turn the ship around. Look for a high of 50 today and the 60s from the weekend into next week.
By the way, for those of you old enough to remember…As part of the largest tornado outbreak in US history, 21 tornadoes struck Indiana hitting 39 counties. Eight of the twisters were killers, leaving 47 dead and over 800 injured. On the whole, 148 tornadoes touched down in 13 states.
