Beautiful Days Ahead

Posted By · June 5, 2014 at 5:12 am
The storms are well south and winds have shifted to the northeast this morning. It’s the wind that will be the key element to a nice change in Indiana today.Today, by the way, a fantastic day with low humidity and temperatures will climb into the mid 70s.

The quiet weather sticks around until Saturday night, when the next chance of showers and thunderstorms will arrive. Rain chances continue on Sunday.

Storms This Morning, Watching Afternoon

Posted By · June 4, 2014 at 3:04 am

Rain and thunderstorms move into Indiana this morning for the morning rush hour. Look for some periods of heavy rain at times. As the system weakens, our attention turns to areas from Indy-south. The Storm Prediction Center has much of Indiana south of Indianapolis under a slight risk of severe weather for later on today.
If the storms weaken quickly this morning, that means storms south of Indy could develop this afternoon and produce hail and gusty winds. If the rain and clouds stick around longer, most of the action would be around the Ohio River and into Kentucky.
Mild air moves into the area tonight, so look for beautiful conditions Thursday into the first half of Saturday.

Nice Today, Storms Wednesday

Posted By · June 3, 2014 at 3:32 am

Look for a really nice, warm day today. highs will reach the mid 80s. There is a slight shower/storm chance in southern Indiana, but much of the viewing area will be dry.  We’re advising you to be weather aware Wednesday with a heightened risk of severe weather.  Right now, we are under a slight risk of severe weather tomorrow, but the Storm Prediction Center has areas from I-70 south under a 30 percent chance of severe weather. We’ll see if the SPC upgrades that to a moderate risk for some parts of the Ohio Valley later.

Pleasant, less humid air builds in behind this system Wednesday night and allows for a nice stretch of weather Thursday into Saturday afternoon.  Though most of Saturday looks nice, there is a chance of showers and storms late in the day… but much of the day looks fine.

Storms This Week

Posted By · June 2, 2014 at 3:31 am

Lots of changes this morning and this week too. There will be an almost daily chance of scattered thunderstorms in Central Indiana.
More humid air arrives today. Another round of thunderstorms will develop by afternoon and will continue into the evening. An isolated strong or severe storm will be possible. Afternoon highs will climb into the low 80s.

Storms will taper off Monday night with just a slight chance of a scattered shower or storm on Tuesday. Temperatures will climb into the mid 80s.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be likely again on Wednesday, especially by afternoon and evening. Some storms on Wednesday could be strong to severe.

Cooler air arrives on Thursday, bringing back near seasonal temperatures.

Vintage Indiana takes place this Saturday at Military Park from noon to 6pm. Right now, it looks like Saturday will be dry with more chances of rain returning on Sunday.DaypartIndians

Nice Weekend Ahead

Posted By · May 30, 2014 at 3:33 am

What a great morning in Indiana and what a lovely weather pattern for the beginning of June. Outdoor plans are ok this weekend with lower humidity and highs in the 80s.
A drier northeast wind will push in less humid conditions for Friday and into the weekend. Highs today will be comfortable in the 80 to 85 range. Humid air and storm chances return after Sunday and marks the beginning of an unsettled, potentially very wet stretch next week. I think we have a real good chance of scattered thunderstorms from Monday-Thursday. By the way, the average high this time of year is 77 and the average low is 58.

Heat, Humidity, Thunderstorms

Posted By · May 28, 2014 at 3:26 am

Summer heat and humidity have returned to Indiana, and today, more summer like storms. At this point we aren’t looking for much in the line of severe weather, but keep in mind that in heat and humidity, locally heavy storms are never out of the question

We will keep thunderstorms in the forecast Thursday.  Friday into Sunday features mostly sunny/warm weather across the state… with comfortable lows in the 50s and highs in the mid-80s.

Storm chances return early next week with some thunder and lightning possible Monday.

Storm Chances Kick In

Posted By · May 27, 2014 at 4:17 am

The calendar says we are still in spring but believe us folks, we are in a summer weather pattern that
will take us well into next week. Warmer weather and scattered thunderstorms
will be the norm in many of our forecasts.

Starting today through Thursday scattered showers and thunderstorms are in the
forecast as highs reach the low to mid 80s. We’re not looking for a washout,
but the afternoons and evenings are looking rainy with rumbles of thunder.

We start to dry out Friday, and just in time for the weekend as highs remain in
the 80s.
Dew points remain high, so the humid air will be sticking around this week too.

Great Memorial Day Start

Posted By · May 26, 2014 at 3:40 am

What a beautiful morning in Indiana on this Memorial Day. Don’t cancel any plans due to the weather. Overall it will be mainly dry. However, daytime heating and an increase in low-level moisture may be enough to set off isolated showers and rumbles of thunder but most of you have a fantastic day.

There will be a daily chance of showers and storms into Thursday, before all signs point toward another warm/dry weekend next Saturday and Sunday.

Enjoy this day and take time to be thankful, on this Memorial Day for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
