A Warm Afternoon

May 8th, 2013 at 12:04 pm by under Weather

Beautiful cumulus clouds are dotting the central Indiana sky this lunch hour.  A few of those clouds could produce spotty showers late this afternoon…most of us should stay dry just like yesterday.  Temperatures are in the upper 60s and lower 70s.  Highs today reach the mid to upper 70s…nearing 80 degrees in southern Indiana.

Warm, With A Small Chance For Showers

May 8th, 2013 at 5:30 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

Overnight, a small shower moved through Indianapolis-giving the airport a report of .07″ of rain.  Due to the rain and the moisture in the air, we do have patchy fog.  A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect for the southeastern corner of the state until 9am.

Temperatures are in the 50s right now.  Highs this afternoon will be warm again in the mid 70s.  Lows tonight fall into the upper 50s.  Highs on Thursday will be just as warm in the mid 70s and nearing 80 degrees to the south.

Scattered showers are possible late this afternoon and evening…but most of us remain dry just like yesterday.  On Thursday central Indiana has a slight risk for severe thunderstorms.  Damaging winds will be the main threat as well as large hail.

The thunderstorms will be off and on through Friday morning.  Friday afternoon we clear out a little bit.  The dry weather will stick around for a good part of opening weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  Saturday, partly cloudy with isolated storms in the evening and highs in the lower 70s.  Sunday, partly cloudy and much cooler with highs in the upper 50s.  The cooler air will continue to filter in Monday morning…with lows in the mid 30s.  Cold enough for a frost or freeze.

Rain Chances Remain In The Forecast

May 5th, 2013 at 4:50 pm by under Colts Forecast, Weather

There is a sharp cut off where the rain has fallen.  Southern Indiana has accumulated a little over an inch of rain in some places.  Indianapolis has had only 0.12″ of rain in the last 24 hours.  Northern Indiana hasn’t had any rain.  The scattered showers remain in the forecast for this evening.  The rain on Forecast 8 Vipir is moving north and west.  The showers become less numerous as the night progresses…becoming more spotty for Monday.  Most of us Monday afternoon will just have mostly cloudy skies.  Rain chances are very slim for Tuesday, but an isolated storm cannot be ruled out.  Wednesday is dry before then another cold front moves in Thursday.  Thursday through next weekend central Indiana has repeated storm chances.

Temperatures are stuck in the 50s in the southern half of the state, while farther north our temps are in the lower 60s.  The rain-cooled air has played a factor in our temps all day, and will continue to do so tonight and tomorrow.  Tonight’s lows dip into the lower 50s.  Monday’s highs in the lower 70s to the north and the upper 60s to the south.  Temps slowly increase throughout the work week, reaching near 80 degrees Thursday and Friday.

Isolated thundershowers are popping up in Illinois.  The showers are moving to the north and west…so central Indiana is in good shape for a few more hours.  Late this afternoon, isolated showers will be possible in the western half of the state as the whole low pressure system shifts farther east.

Squeezing Out Another Warm, Mostly Dry Day

A line of showers and storms is still sitting to the northwest of Indiana.  Most of today will be dry.  Isolated showers are possible late this evening, mainly in northern and western Indiana.  The rain spreads across the state overnight tonight into Friday.  Friday, the showers will be rather spotty.  Saturday morning the rain and thunderstorms pick up in intensity and coverage.  Forecast 8 Futurecast shows the line of rain moving northeast through Indiana by 7am Saturday.  The Mini Marathon may get soggy at times as we try to dodge the rain.
