Rain Chances Increase Through Day and Evening

November 23rd, 2014 at 9:54 am by under Weather

The earlier you get out, the lower the chance you have of seeing rain.  By late afternoon, most locations should see steady rain and maybe even a few rumbles of thunder, but no severe weather is expected today.  Rainfall totals could range from .5″ to 1.5″!

Rain Developing, Maybe A Few Rumbles of Thunder?

November 23rd, 2014 at 6:38 am by under Weather

TODAY:  An impressive storm system will move into the region during the course of the day.  It will continue the mild temps, but it will also bring steady rain, by this afternoon and evening. That rain could be heavy at times, and I can’t rule out a rumble of thunder.

THIS EVENING: Our temps will climb through the evening, and we may see our high temperature just before midnight. Rain will be heavy at times.

Micro 3   Evening_Forecast_NO_INTERACTION

OVERNIGHT:  Scattered rain showers will continue.  Temps will stay in the 50s.


COLDER AIR RETURNS MONDAY:  Monday will start mild with scattered rain showers.  Colder air will streak in during the day, and temps will fall during the day.  After starting in the 50s, we will fall to the mid to upper 30s in the afternoon.  We could see a few snow showers fall as the temps fall, but the warmer ground should prevent any accumulation. These images show the transition!

8-DAY FORECAST:  Temps will stay below normal this week.  Highs will be in the 30s and 40s.  Wednesday could see a light wintry mix late Wednesday and perhaps some light scattered snow showers Thanksgiving Day Thursday.   Models greatly disagree on late week weather, as some bring in bitter cold air, while some keep it mild.  There will be adjustments needed in that part of the forecast as days unfold.

Bring Rain Coat for Colts Game

November 22nd, 2014 at 7:22 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

Rain chances will be spotty early in the day Sunday, then increase as the day wears on.  We might be lucky enough to avoid rain coming to Lucas Oil Stadium, or if you will be traveling somewhere to watch the game, but rain chances will be a bit higher for leaving Lucas oil Stadium.  The good news is that it will be mild with highs in the 50s.
