We’ll Stay Dry Today, But Severe Storms Are Possible Tomorrow

By · April 24, 2012 at 12:36 pm

What a difference a day makes! Yesterday we had winds gusting to 44 mph in Indy. It’s still breezy today, but winds will gust 20-30 making it a lot easier to enjoy the milder temps outside! We’re bucking our unseasonably cool trend of the last 3 days with highs only in the 50s. Today, we’ll climb to near average (66) with a high of 65 in Indy.

Yesterday it looked like there could be some passing showers moving through Central Indiana today. There have been some very light sprinkles trying to move through Eastern Illinois and far Western Indiana, but most of the rain isn’t even reaching the ground and it now looks like Indy will stay dry until tomorrow. That’s great news if you’ve got tickets to this evening’s Indians game!

Our stretch of dry weather ends tomorrow – in fact there’s even a slight chance of severe storms tomorrow afternoon through night. A few storms could bring severe wind and hail to Central Indiana. At this point it looks like the rain will arrive after the Indians’ day game, but storms could impact the evening rush. Here’s a look at our FutureTrak13 Computer Model at 4pm tomorrow:

And here are the areas (shaded in yellow) highlighted for a slight risk of severe storms tomorrow for Indy points south and west. T-storms are possible for areas to the north and east (shaded in green).

We’ll enjoy a mild day today, then warmer air tomorrow and Thursday, but temps take a plunge back into the cool 50s late week and into the weekend.
