A few isolated showers are still bubbling up across central Indiana.  These showers are short lived and are moving northeast then dissipating quickly.  In between the rain we have partly cloudy skies and some sunshine.  Plus it is warm and humid with temps in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Scattered storms are expected to pop up throughout the day on Labor Day.  There will be plenty of breaks in the rain, but by Monday evening things get dicey.  Scattered storms will again develop and move in between 8pm and midnight. Those storms could be strong to severe.  The Storm Prediction Center has most of central Indiana under a slight risk for severe storms.  Damaging wind and large hail will be the main threats.  Heavy rain could also lead to localized flooding and lightning will make things dangerous outside.  Stay tuned to the Forecast 8 team for updates on this system.

Our Stormy Pattern Continues

August 30th, 2014 at 6:49 pm by under Colts Forecast, Weather

Indianapolis is dry for now as we are wedged between two areas of rain.  One area of rain to the south and one area of storms to the northwest.  The rain and storms are moving northeast so we keep the evening dry other than a stray shower and some sprinkles.  Tonight there is a better chance for rain and storms into daybreak Sunday.  Sunday will bring off and on showers and storms, but we will have plenty of dry periods so don’t cancel plans.

WISH Weather Earth Design

Temperatures are in the upper 70s and lower 80s with heat index values in the low to mid 80s.  Tonight we stay muggy with lows around 70º.  Sunday and Monday our high temps will be in the mid 80s and still humid.

A Few Showers

August 30th, 2014 at 3:08 pm by under Weather

This late afternoon we have a few light showers across central Indiana and some sprinkles downtown Indy.   Scattered storms are developing northwest of central Indiana and that is where most of the storm chances will be this evening.  Any storm that develops could produce gusty wind, small hail, heavy rain and lightning.  Isolated storms and showers are possible over the rest of the state this evening too.
