The Masters is being interrupted by heavy rain.  Lightning has not shown up anywhere near the course.  However, there is a storm moving in from the southwest…that could produce lightning if it holds together.



Much Warmer Today

Temperatures have reached the upper 60s and lower 70s!  We still have some time to heat up, so the high for the day should exceed that 70 degree mark in Indianapolis without a problem.  Hazy sunshine will continue this afternoon/evening.


Northern Lights?

Clouds are starting to roll into central Indiana now.  The west side of Indianapolis is mostly cloudy…the east side is still mostly clear.  The eastern and southern parts of the state now have the best chance for viewing the northern lights.  According to reports from aurora forecasters, the aurora should be active around 9:37 pm.  Good luck catching it!

A Colder Day

April 12th, 2013 at 4:46 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

The rain has finally moved out of Indiana.  Rain totals over the last couple of days are between 1″ to the south and 3″ farther north.  Indianapolis is just under 1″.  The heavy rain has left a lot of standing water and minor river flooding that will last through next week. Here is a link to river crest information:

A few sprinkles are possible later today.  Other than that, it will be a mostly cloudy and breezy day.

Steady showers continue to fall in the eastern half of Indiana.  The rain is slowly pushing east…with the individual cells moving northeast along the boundary.  According to the latest forecast models, more showers fill back into central Indiana this afternoon.  Could see some t-storms in southeastern Indiana late this afternoon too.


A Rainy Day, Colder Temps Slowly Move In

April 11th, 2013 at 5:12 am by under Colts Forecast, Weather

Numerous reports of hail and wind gusts have come in from overnight.  Hail of 1″ to 2″ has been reported (2″ hail in NW Indy, Fishers, near Muncie).  Those reports are from the storms last night.  This morning, just dealing with steady and at times, heavy rain.  The line of rain continues to push eastward with the individual showers and t-showers moving northeast.

The cold front is still sitting to the west and until it moves through, we could squeeze out a couple more strong to severe storms in southeastern Indiana later today.  The biggest threats from those additional storms may be damaging wind and large hail.  The rain will be off and on all day long across central Indiana with an additional 1-1.5″ of rain expected by tonight.

Temperatures are in the upper 50s and lower 60s.  We may see some breaks in the rain to help temps increase briefly into the lower 60s.  However, more rain-cooled air is expected and eventually that cold front moves through this evening.  Temps fall into the upper 50s by 5pm.  Tonight’s lows fall into the upper 30s and lower 40s.  Friday’s highs only reach the upper 40s with a few left-over showers.  This weekend we stay dry both days.  Saturday’s highs in the lower 50s.  Sunday’s highs in the upper 60s.
