Stormy Start to the Week

Keep the rain gear handy… thunderstorms aren’t leaving our forecast yet!

A lingering warm front will trigger showers and thunderstorms across Central Indiana today and tomorrow across Central Indiana.  Some storms may be strong to severe with damaging wind, hail, and very heavy rain that could create localized flooding.  Highs today will reach the mid 80s with increasing humidity.

Overnight, we should dry out as temps drop to the low 70s with winds out of the South up to 20mph.

Tuesday, highs will hit the low 90s with a chance for an isolated thunderstorm.  It will be hot and muggy.

Showers and storms are more likely Wednesday as a cold front pushes through the state.  Some storms may be strong to severe as cooler air behind the front tries to settle in.

After the stormy start to the week, check out the 7 day forecast… looks pretty good for the weekend.  Let’s think of it as a reward for what we’re dealing with now!

  1. You guys are awful at predicting the weather: Your bad in the winter and are almost as bad in the summer. Lets look at some of your recent blogs on todays forecast:

    Father’s Day doesn’t look like a washout, but you will need to dodge some raindrops! Monday, highs push into the upper 80s with a lot of humidity, and a slight chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Most of the activity looks to be isolated in our Northern counties, but that could change.

    Getting closer.

    TODAY: 100% Chance.

    Like I said your all just awful at predicting the weather. At least your not like in charge of national security or something.

  2. Mike,

    Thank you for your observations.

    As of yesterday morning when one of the blogs you’re referring to written, the triggering mechanism of these thunderstorms was forecast to be north of Central Indiana. So, at that time, it did look like the activity would be isolated in nature.

    The thunderstorms that are forming today are training. That’s when round after round of heavy rain from thunderstorms moves over one area, producing flooding.

    Thank you for your comments. When we forecast, we strive to give the most accurate forecast possible. The weather can change in a matter of hours.
