Rain Chances Ramping Up for Week Ahead

May 24th, 2015 at 3:31 pm by under Weather

This holiday weekend has been very nice for outdoor activities but changes will take shape starting as early as tonight. The dry conditions will be replaced with increased moisture and scattered rain and storm chances. This unsettled pattern will stick around for the entire week. Temperatures will stay warm with highs in the upper 70s to low and mid 80s. This evening clouds will be abundant but the chance of rain will remain isolated. A storm system is lifting north and east through the plains over the next 24 hours. As it gets close, it will trigger a few storms tonight in central Indiana. Memorial Day will be wet at times with scattered storms off and on through the day. No need to cancel outdoor festivities but an indoor back up plan is a good idea. Some storms will put down heavy rain as they move through. Tuesday, there is the risk of severe storms. Currently, the Storm Prediction Center has much of central Indiana under a slight risk.

The big weekend is here, and it looks good overall….

May 22nd, 2015 at 11:26 pm by under Weather

Finally, the biggest weekend in Indianapolis has arrived, and the forecast looks to cooperate for the most part. But there are a few time frames when less-than-perfect conditions will be in place.

TONIGHT:
Lows tonight will be in the low 50s or upper 40s with a few high thin clouds.

Daypart Tomorrow Full

SATURDAY:
One change to the forecast may involved adding a few more clouds to the morning forecast. Additional moisture from a system to the west may bring additional clouds or a few sprinkles through late morning, but that should dissipate quickly into the afternoon. Expect plenty of sunshine by the afternoon with highs in the upper 70s. Lows in the upper 50s.

3 Day Forecast

RACE DAY (SUNDAY):
With a mix of clouds and sunshine in the morning, temperatures will warm into the 70s quickly by the start of the Indianapolis 500. Expect temperature sin the mid to upper 70s at the start of the race and partly cloudy skies. Highs are expected near 80.

A few showers or thunderstorms may develop during the afternoon to the south and west, but should not arrive until later in the afternoon or evening. While rain is not expected for the Indy 500, the radar will need to be monitored for developing storms in the latter half of the race.

MEMORIAL DAY (MONDAY):
Temperatures will again warm quickly to near 80 degrees by the afternoon, but unlike Sunday, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be more widespread. Not expected to be a washout, but a good idea to have your WISH TV Weather app ready to monitor any developing showers on radar if you plan to be outdoors!


Perfect Afternoon!

May 22nd, 2015 at 1:55 pm by under Weather

Current temperatures across the state are in the upper 60s to lower 70s along with breezy conditions. These conditions will stick around for this evening with lows in the lower 50s. There is some rain off to our west, but we will not have to worry about that for the next few days.
