Slight Risk Severe Weather

Posted By · October 13, 2014 at 3:23 am

Don’t leave home without bringing a rain coat with you. The warm southerly breeze will help set off showers and thunderstorms today. Look for the unsettled weather to be with us all day today.

A Slight Risk of severe weather remains in place for much of the state today, including the Indianapolis metro area.  This is primarily for storms tonight and into Tuesday.  Lines of storms may produce severe wind, though it’s unclear if storms will be hold together as our atmosphere stabilizes tonight.

Look for some heavy downpours of rain Tuesday with some locations possibly seeing nearly 3″ of rain by Wednesday morning. Again, some of the rain will be heavy at times.

More scattered showers and storms will circulate around Indiana Wednesday and Thursday before this system moves out. Looks like it will be awhile before many of you are able to mow your yard!

Friday Forecast and the Weekend too

Posted By · October 9, 2014 at 10:09 pm

The Friday forecast includes more clouds and more showers.  The steadiest rain will fall across the southern half of the state.  It will be another cool afternoon with highs in the upper 60s and lower 60s.  Those lower 60s will be north of Indianapolis where there will be less wet weather.  This band of steady rain will start to shift south Friday evening.

Operation Football is Friday night and if you are going to a high school football game, it will be cool and in the 50s.  We are forecasting rain chances south of Indianapolis, but drier weather north.

PLANNER EVENING

The weekend forecast includes high temperatures in the 60s.  Saturday will be the drier day, with rain chances returning later Sunday.  We are tracking strong storm system for early next week.  This system will bring the threat for storms and heavy rain.  Stay tuned for updates.

Fall Feel Stays

Posted By · September 17, 2014 at 3:11 am

We begin this day with areas of dense fog. That will burn off by mid morning, but it will be another chilly day in Indiana for this time of year. It will be another cooler than average day, with highs in the range of 65-70 degrees. The average high is 78 degrees. We get closer to that average by Friday and Saturday.

We’re looking for sunshine and beautiful weather for Thursday through Saturday, along with a gradual warming trend. Highs will be in the lower 70s on Thursday, the middle 70s on Friday and in the lower 80s on Saturday.

The weekend will end with rain chances on Sunday.Those showers actually come courtesy the remnants of Hurricane Odile, a rare thing indeed that storm remnants from the Baja affect Indiana. Fall begins on Monday September 22 at 10:29pm. There will be another round of cooler air too, just in time for Fall to begin. High temperatures fall back into the 60s early next week.
In 1969, the record rain total for the day was established with 1.07″.

Autumn Weather Arrives

Posted By · September 11, 2014 at 3:08 am

The storms have moved out and the cooler air is moving into Indiana today. Yesterday, the Indy Airport reported .90″ of rain but much heavier rain hit the north side and Castleton reported 3.04″ of rain. The front that brought the precipitation has moved into Kentucky.

Today, look for mostly cloudy skies and a high of only 70 degrees. Highs will only be in the middle and upper 60s Friday through Sunday.  Morning temperatures will fall into the 40s starting Sunday.  

Most of the weekend will be dry, but a stray shower is possible on Saturday.  Sunday will be sunny and cool, with highs in the 60s. 

Highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s are in the forecast for early next week.  There is a chance for rain on Tuesday.

Muggy Today, Great Weekend!

Posted By · September 4, 2014 at 3:20 am

We start this morning out a little warm and very muggy. That’s a pattern we’ll see all day long today as our weather proves summer isn’t quite over yet.

Temperatures soar under hazy sun this afternoon.  Highs around 88 in many areas and heat indices should be well into the 90s.  We will keep it dry today, but storms will dive into northern Indiana later today.

A better chances of rain and storms arrive Friday, but not before highs likely hit 90 degrees.  The hot, humid air feeds heavy downpours and lightning Friday afternoon into early Saturday morning.

The big story this weekend remains the return of refreshing air.  Highs Saturday and Sunday will only be in the 70s, and lows Sunday morning drop into the 40s and 50s!  We’ll enjoy a pleasant stretch from late Saturday into Tuesday afternoon.

Labor Day Changes

Posted By · September 1, 2014 at 7:42 am

A big day for many of you with Labor Day activities. Keep your smartphone and WTHR weather app handy as storms will dot the Indiana landscape today.

We are under a slight risk of severe weather especially later tonight and into early tomorrow with thunderstorms, possibly strong, moving through the state. Cloud cover and rain during the day could limit the severity of the storms.

Rain and storm coverage diminishes heading into Tuesday afternoon and sets the stage for a brighter Wednesday.  The end of the week is highlighted by hot air and highs in the upper 80s.  Look for a chance for cooler, pleasant air moving back into Indiana Sunday.  Highs in the 70s are possible at that time.

On This Date in Central Indiana Weather History……

2003 : Indianapolis…The greatest 24 hour measured rainfall in the city. The airport received 7.20 inches of rain in less than 20 hours. Widespread flooding occurred throughout the city. The White River in downtown Indy rose 15 feet in 18 hours.

Fog, Heat And Storms

Posted By · August 25, 2014 at 3:12 am

It is a muggy, warm start to the day and in many areas we’re seeing fog this morning.  This will all be followed by hazy sunshine and a slight storm chance tonight.  Highs will top out at 89 but some towns could see 90 for the first time this year.  Try and stay cool, because heat indices will be in the 90s to near 100 in spots.

Better storm chances arrive Monday night into Tuesday.  There is the potential for multiple rounds of storms Tuesday… both in the early morning and afternoon.  Another 1-3″+ rainfall is possible for some depending on the track and coverage of storms.  This marks another unsettled stretch that brings daily chances of heavy storms as Indiana remains on the edge of the hot dome.

The rest of the week looks almost like Central Florida with daily chances for thunderstorms and highs in the mid 80s. We’ll keep you covered during the day on WTHR TV and WTHR.com.

A Few Showers

Posted By · August 13, 2014 at 10:27 pm

A weak disturbance in the atmosphere is triggering a few showers Wednesday night north and east of Indianapolis.  With the cooler air in place across central Indiana, it isn’t taking much to squeeze out a few showers.  This disturbance will move south of Indianapolis on Thursday.  Most of our area will be dry, with a mix of sun and clouds and highs 75-80 degrees.  There will be just a couple of showers possible on Thursday especially south of Indianapolis.  Here is the timeline with Futuretrak13.
