Tracking More Warmth & Storm Chances

April 6th, 2013 at 6:25 pm by under Colts Forecast, Weather




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 Windy, Warmer Day

April 6th, 2013 at 3:56 pm by under Weather

The wind has picked up from the south, ushering in warmer air.  Temperatures are in the 60s for most…Terre Haute has reached 71 degrees.  A hazy sunshine is found across the state.  Scattered rain is sitting just to the west and north of Indianapolis.  The rain holds off until overnight tonight.  Enjoy the warm evening!

A Beautiful Day

50s Today…60s This Weekend

April 5th, 2013 at 6:08 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

We have another chilly start to the day with temps in the 30s in most locations.  A weak, dry cold front will push through central Indiana during the day.  That will keep temps again the mid 50s, but the sunshine will help to get temps there.  Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies are expected this afternoon.  Temps warm into the mid and upper 50s.  Tonight temps will again reach the upper 30s for most, due to radiational cooling.

The temps really warm up for the weekend.  Saturday’s highs in the upper 60s, Sunday’s highs still in the mid 60s.  Saturday, partly cloudy skies and Sunday some scattered rain.  Sunday for daybreak a few showers quickly push through central Indiana.  Sunday afternoon we get a break from the rain with mostly cloudy skies.  Then in the evening more scattered rain develops with this time some isolated thunderstorms mixed in.  An active and stormy weather pattern sets up for next week as a frontal boundary stalls out over the Ohio Valley.  This will keep us warm, but with chances for strong to severe storms.

Slightly Warmer Today

April 4th, 2013 at 6:03 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

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.

A Warming Trend Begins

April 3rd, 2013 at 6:25 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

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:


Some Easter Showers

March 30th, 2013 at 10:07 pm by under Weather

Scattered rain is moving east into Indiana.  The showers are grouped pretty much to the south and north of I-70 with cloudy skies  in between.  The rain will be spotty overnight into the early morning hours Sunday.  The rain will be hit or miss all morning.  By the afternoon, mostly cloudy with some sunshine.  A stray shower is possible Sunday evening and we become breezy with highs in the mid 50s.

A Mild Easter Sunday Forecast

March 30th, 2013 at 6:33 pm by under Colts Forecast, Weather

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!
