Wet Pattern To Continue

Another wet day in Central Indiana and we’ve got an active 72 hours ahead.  Rain amounts since midnight fall in the .10″ to nearly .50″.

OBSERVED RAINFALL

More wet times ahead in Central Indiana with an additional 1″ to 2″ by Thursday midday… and locally higher amounts are likely in heavier storms.

RAIN POTENTIAL

Clouds and rain have kept temperatures in check thus far by warmer air is nudging into southwestern Indiana where it’s almost 70 degrees in Terre Haute.

TEMPS

PLANNER TONIGHT

Actually the warmest air of the day may arrive toward sunset as warm front creeps toward the Indy metro area.  A saturated air mass around this boundary leads to areas of drizzle outside of downpours and locally heavy storms the next 24 hours.

5AM TUESDAY PLANNER MORNING 12PM TUESDAY

There will once again be areas of heavy rain to navigate through during the Tuesday morning commute.  We’ll be monitoring conditions closely tomorrow with the potential of severe storms during the afternoon and evening.

4PM TUESDAY 8PM TUESDAY PLANNER AFTERNOON

This will be predicated on how quickly early morning rain/storms diminish and how much warming occurs before storm initiation later in the day.

SPC DAY 2

We believe the severe threat may be bumped up a category for the Indy metro area based on a potential of atmospheric instability interacting with a stalled front.  All of modes of severe weather are in play Tuesday and it’s a good idea to stay weather aware tomorrow.

6AM WEDNESDAY

Wednesday looks like a mainly dry and much warmer day in the 80s.  But the heat only could ignite isolated storms alone… but a great area of rain/storms arrives Wednesday night into Thursday with the approach of a cold front.

WEDNESDAY 5PM THURSDAY MIDDAY 7DAY

Highs Friday will be near 70 degrees before a substantial drop off this weekend.  Temperatures likely don’t reach 60 degrees with some showers and rumbles of thunder.

The Wet Week Ahead

We have a lot of rain around the area today and we’ll have a wet pavement for the morning rush hour today. While it won’t be a washout today, there will be periods of storms anytime from sunrise to sunset.

headlinesDaypart

More storms move in Tuesday and some of these storms could possibly reach severe limits.  Highs near 80 degrees Wednesday before the next batch of rain and storms hits Wednesday night into Thursday. It looks like we will see dry conditions here by Friday with mild highs in the mid 60s.

All signs point toward a much cooler than normal pattern hitting next weekend when highs look to be in the 50s… some 15 degrees below normal.  The kids will need a jacket for the Chase 500 Festival Kids Day and Rookie Run. The ups and downs of May continue!

highs

It is a cold front that is separating these 2 different air masses.  The front will be the trigger few a few showers and storms on Saturday.  1 or 2 may develop as early as late morning north of Indianapolis, but the better chance for storms will develop in the afternoon hours and linger into Saturday evening.  Remember not everyone will have rain and storms.  If you have outdoor plans, you can check Live Doppler 13 Radar from your phone with the SkyTrak13 Weather App.  It can be very helpful during times of scattered storms.  Here is the timeline for storm chances.

Sun And 70s Ahead Friday!

A brightening sky this afternoon is nice, but will actually help destabilize the air enough to allow spotty lake effect showers to develop.  That’s right… lake effect.
