  • Rain and snow could impact the Monday morning commute

    That makes 12! With yet another day below average, we are up to 12 straight days where temperatures have stayed on the cool side. November 2018 is now the 12th coldest on record, to-date. We could easily see that rise a few more places before the month is out. We’ll even start off with a bit of a wintry feel Monday morning. Rain moving in from the south will track north through the overnight hours and many of us could […]

  • Tracking a break from our unusually cold pattern

    IT COULD BE WORSE We may be in a cold and dreary weather pattern, but at least it’s nothing like the severe weather outbreak we had on this day, 5 years ago. Today marks the anniversary of Indiana’s second largest tornado outbreak, with the 30 recorded tornadoes. You can find more information on that event here! UNUSUALLY COLD We’re just dealing with cold temperatures and some spotty light rain in our northern counties this evening. Temperatures rose a few degrees […]

  • More wintry weather this weekend; holiday warm-up on the menu

    Clouds for the win today. A temperature inversion (warmer air aloft), kept a lid on our atmosphere and didn’t allow for our clouds to clear. So, it was a mainly grey, cool day, as clouds kept temperatures from reaching 40-degrees. We strung together our tenth straight day below average as the high temperature in Indianapolis only made it to 39°. That’s the average high temperature for December 13th! So where is Fall?? We’re actually looking at a warm-up in the […]

  • Aftermath of morning ice; we’re not out of the woods yet

    What a morning! Sleeting conditions are easing and now we’re left with the aftermath of so much ice build up. Some of the pictures are beautiful while others are more devastating. We’ve had viewers sending us photos from tree limbs and sheets of ice on cars, to beautifully glazed trees. A BIG TOLL ON POWER LINES  Areas like Decatur county reported numerous road closing due to tree limbs in the roadways. However, it wasn’t just trees down and travel conditions […]

  • Tracking sticking snow across central Indiana

    The cold is hanging on and a new surge of it is marching its way toward central Indiana at this time. Plus, it’s bringing with it, the chance for rain and snow as we head into Monday and Tuesday. A few spotty snow showers are possible early Monday morning, mainly north. However, anything that does fall won’t be more than a dusting and most of us will be dry. Moisture that makes it to the ground could still cause a […]

  • Slight warm-up to end the weekend before new surge of cold air arrives

    January in November? It certainly felt like it today. Not only did we have low temperatures this morning start off in the teens, which is the first time we’ve seen a November temperature so low in 3 years, but we also only had a high temperature of 35°. That’s more like a mid January day! Our lowest average high temperature we ever see in Indianapolis, is 35° from January 5th through the 19th. It will be cold again tonight. Good […]

  • Early arctic blast bringing coldest air of the season

    EARLY ARCTIC BLAST MOVING IN It’s early for an arctic front, passing tonight. Snow showers drift in early this evening. Get ready, the COLDEST November night in Indianapolis in three years arrives tonight, with a low near 20-degrees. Northwest winds remain brisk as skies clear later tonight. Add the brisk wind and the WIND CHILL Saturday morning dips to single-digits. ANOTHER SHOT OF COLDER AIR ARCTIC FRONT #2 follows a possible ‘sticking’ snow Monday night into Tuesday morning. Even colder […]

  • Rain mixing with snow could impact your Friday morning commute

    We’re tracking a system out west that will bring us rain and possible a few snowflakes by early Friday morning. Winter Weather Advisories are already in place over parts of Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Michigan. No Winter Weather Advisories are expected across central Indiana. In fact, little to no accumulation is expected with any snow that does develop. The earliest accumulation Indianapolis has ever seen occurred on October 18th back in 1989 when a whopping 0.2″ of snow fell. We […]

  • Tracking rain and snow chances to finish the week

    The beautiful fall leaves sure have taken a beating over the past week. With several windy days, including gusts near 30 mph this afternoon, the trees are being stripped of their color. Our cool afternoon is actually the warmest one we’ll see over the next week. Temperatures are running about 7 degrees below normal, temperatures that aren’t as common to see until a few weeks from now. However, we are in the fastest cooling month of the year. Average temperatures […]

  • First week of November to bring more soggy days

    After a soggy start to the month, things are improving today. At least, in terms of rainfall. Indianapolis picked up 2″ of rain on Thursday, a record for the date. After a few more showers early this morning, we’ve picked up over half of our monthly average rainfall, 3.70″. Things are drying out but we can’t rule out another isolated shower or two late this afternoon and evening. Although we aren’t looking at heavy rain, the ground will likely still […]
