Morning Sun, Some Afternoon Storms

By · August 2, 2013 at 8:59 am

Spotty showers are possible this morning north-northeast of Indianapolis.  Most of us begin with a good dose of sunshine, and expect many dry hours today for the opening of the Indiana State Fair.

EVENT (1)

Temperatures should quickly jump into the mid/upper 70s by midday and reach the low/mid 80s for the 2nd straight day.  The latest FutureTrak 13 model shows the spotty shower chance N-NE of Indy into early afternoon.  Better instability occurs during peak heating… and scattered showers/storms fire as a result.

Saturday will not be a washout, but rain chances remain in play until a cold front passes to the south of the area.  That will not occur until late afternoon.  So rain/storms are possible along the I-70 corridor until 3-4pm, and last longer in southern Indiana (5-6pm).

This front will usher in another round of very pleasant air for early August.  Low humidity, sunshine and a refreshing northerly breeze sets the stage for a super Sunday!

Lows Sunday morning drop comfortably into the 50s.  Sunshine and mid 70s will be a nice way to round out the opening weekend of the state fair!

In fact, late Saturday afternoon into Tuesday will be a great stretch of weather across central Indiana… with below to much below normal tempeartures expected.

7dayWe’re keeping an eye on Wednesday for strong/severe storm potential.  Several days out, but long range guidance a good chance of storms.  Thanks for reading the blog and have a great weekend – Sean Ash
