Warming Up

May 15th, 2013 at 9:06 am by under Weather

Scattered showers are moving along a weak cold front in northern Indiana.  These showers will stay just north of central Indiana until late this afternoon.  Then the front slowly moves south through the state, triggering an isolated thunderstorm late today.  Most of us will stay dry and very warm with highs in the mid 80s.

The Warmth Builds

May 15th, 2013 at 5:02 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

Central Indiana avoids rain chances until late this afternoon with an isolated thunderstorm.  Other than that, today will be dry and partly cloudy…with very warm temps.  Temperatures this morning are in the upper 60s and lower 70s.  Temps rise quickly during the afternoon hours-reaching highs in the mid and upper 80s.  Our average high temp is 72º.  Our record high temp for this date is 88º set in 2001, 1988, and 1894.  We get close to the record high, but we should miss it.  Overnight lows remain warm in the mid 60s tonight.

Temps on Thursday will be a bit cooler in the upper 70s and lower 80s.  Expecting more clouds and some rain too that will help cool us.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected as a front stalls out during the day Thursday.  Repeated chance for rain stick around the 8-day forecast due to the stalled front.  Temperatures remain more summer-like in the extended forecast.

May 11th, 2013 at 6:39 pm by under Colts Forecast, Weather

Tracking a few thundershowers as a weak cold front pushes through central Indiana.  The rain will move out over the next couple of hours.  Cooler air takes over for tonight into Mother’s Day. Temps right now are in the lower 60s with lows tonight falling into the upper 30s.  Patchy frost is possible in the northern parts of central Indiana, but most places will not get it due to the wind staying high enough from the northwest 5-15 mph.
