Central Indiana is dry right now. A few spotty showers may push through the northern and western parts of the state this evening, but most of us stay dry. After midnight a line of scattered rain moves through all of the state. The rain chances end by Sunday afternoon, with peaks of sunshine. Then some showers and an isolated thunderstorm will be possible in the late afternoon.
Temperatures are very warm this evening in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Indianapolis has reached 70! The last time Indy was at or above 70 degrees was November 10th (72 degrees). A strong south wind is boosting our temp. Later on, temps fall into the lower 60s and upper 50s. Tonight’s lows will be comfortable in the lower 50s. Sunday afternoon we expect highs to once again reach the upper 60s and lower 70s.
The 8-day forecast definitely looks more spring-like. Temperatures remain in the upper 60s and lower 70s through mid-week. The stalled out cold front will keep multiple waves of showers and storms in central Indiana. Wednesday into Thursday there is a possibility of strong to severe storms. Stay tuned because the timing of the storms will be tricky due to lack of consistency in the forecast models.

A low pressure system is south of Indiana this morning. The rain chances stay to our south and east all day long. Central Indiana will be dry with partial sunshine today.
Temperatures continue to warm day by day until we reach the 60s this weekend! Temps right now are in the 30s and are milder than this time yesterday. A light breeze from the east is making it feel colder though. The afternoon will be pleasant with highs reaching the mid to upper 50s. Those high temps will depend on how much cloud cover sticks around during the prime heating hours. Tonight’s lows won’t be quite as cold, in the upper 30s.
Friday, partly cloudy with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. Saturday and Sunday our highs hit the low to mid 60s. Saturday will be the drier of the two days, with scattered rain on Sunday. It will not be an all day rain though. Thunderstorms are still expected for next week, Tuesday through Thursday. Stay tuned to updates on those storms as they could be severe.

Right now, temperatures are cold again in the 20s. After the frosty start to the day, temps increase into the upper 40s and lower 50s later today. Overnight tonight, temperatures fall into the upper 20s and lower 30s again due to the mostly clear skies. We won’t have any clouds to trap in the heat we accumulate during the afternoon hours.
Highs for Thursday gain a few more degrees-in the mid 50s. Thursday evening there is a chance for a few spotty rain showers in southern Indiana. However, most of us stay dry with partly cloudy skies. Friday into Saturday our warm up continues. Friday’s highs reach the upper 50s…Saturday in the mid 60s. Sunday through next Thursday high temps stay in the 60s. An active weather pattern sets up though, with multiple chances for thunderstorms next week.
Central Indiana is suffering from spring fever! As we all itch to plant our gardens and flowers, you may want to hold off. Based on how long and cold the winter has been, the safest time to plant may be well after Mother’s Day (May 12th) this year. Here are some last freeze dates for Indianapolis:

Scattered rain and thundershowers are moving through Illinois…and are inching closer to the Hoosier state. The clouds from this system have already arrived. The rain pushes in late this evening. Scattered rain continues through 7am Sunday. Spotty rain lingers in the eastern half of Indiana for late Sunday morning. Brief clearing takes over Sunday afternoon with some sunshine. A stray shower is possible for Sunday evening but most of us stay dry.
Temperatures are still warm at this hour-in the upper 50s. This evening temps remain comfortable and overnight lows reach the upper 40s.
Sunday’s highs reach the mid to upper 50s for most. Colder air filters in Sunday night into Monday. Light snow showers are possible Monday morning. Most of the day will be dry, however. Highs Monday and Tuesday will only be around 40º. Another warm up takes over by mid-week. By next weekend our highs reach the 60s, finally!
