Muggies & Storms On The Way

Posted By · June 18, 2014 at 7:06 am

Look for heat and humidity to return to Central Indiana today. After hitting 88 degrees yesterday, it looks like a good bet that we will break the 90 degree mark, topping out at 91. A front is stalled to the north of Indy this morning and thunderstorms are breaking out around that front.

Later today and especially tonight, we could see scattered thunderstorms. The Storm Prediction Center has our area under a slight risk of severe weather. Looking for most of the possibly intense weather to occur late tonight, especially between 9 pm and midnight. The main threats may be some locally heavy downpours, gusty winds and vivid lightning.

We’ll be tracking the weather all day on WTHR-TV, wthr.com and the WTHR weather app.

Temperatures stay in the mid 80s Friday-Sunday.

Warmest Streak of 2014 (So Far)

Posted By · June 17, 2014 at 5:14 am

It is a warm and humid day that awaits us in Central
Indiana. While the Chicagoland area sees thunderstorms we
keep it dry here with temperatures slowly increasing.
By the afternoon, our high reaches 91, the warmest day
since September 11th of 2013! We may reach 90 Wednesday
and Thursday too. Without question, this will be the warmest streak of 2014 so far.
We bring thunderstorm chances back into the picture
tomorrow. We have already had 3.77 inches of rain this
month.

Summer In June

Posted By · June 16, 2014 at 5:25 am

We begin the day with scattered showers and warm temperatures. In fact, this morning, temps are 15 to 20 degrees warmer than yesterday. Look for a really warm week ahead. The average high this time of year is 82 but we will have temperatures top out nearly 10 degrees warmer than average by tomorrow. This will, quite possibly be the warmest week of the Spring Season so far as we will nudge above 90 degrees at least 2 days. The calendar says June but we’ll be looking at late July weather.

The last time we reached 90 degrees was on September 11th of 2013 when we topped out at 95 degrees.

Because of the heat and humidity, we’ll have showers and thunderstorms pop up several times  this week. Remember that you can always get the latest information on WTHR-TV, wthr.com and the WTHR weather app.

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.
