Warmest March! It will be official at midnight…2012 the warmest March on record! Records date back to 1871 for Indy.
Above Average Streak Rolls On: We may have had a cooler than average high of only 54 Saturday, but since the low was warmer than average, the day as a whole goes down as an above average day. That makes 22 straight if you’re counting, and you know I am!
Severe Risk: A severe t-storm watch was posted ‘til 5am for parts of Eastern Iowa into Illinois. If those storms hold together as they push into Indiana, it’s possible a watch will be issued for parts of Northern and Central Indiana. For now, areas from Indy points east are highlighted in a slight risk of severe for Sunday. Primary threat: Hail.
Record Heat: After a warm front moves through Sunday (and after the storms blow through), we’ll watch temps soar into the 70s to near 80. I think we’ll get close to a record Sunday (record is 82 set in 2010, forecasting 79), and we could break a record Monday (record is 81 set in 2010, forecasting 82).
More Storms: Storms possible late Monday through early Wednesday, and possibly Thursday to our south. A fairly active weather week ahead.
