  • Tracking chances for snow and record cold temperatures

    Millions across the U.S. are bracing for another, stronger push of arctic air. Record cold temperatures are possible with this surge of frigid air, and that includes central Indiana. We luckily escape the weekend without feeling the extreme chill. However, temperatures will still be on the cool side and few degrees below average. Keep that in mind if you will be outside tailgating as the Colts host the Miami Dolphins. By the time the game ends, the winds will be […]

  • Very cold tonight; weekend warmup before another arctic blast

    Our first wave of arctic air is streaming into the state. As clouds decrease into the evening hours, temperatures will plummet very quickly. We reached our high temperature for the day (44°) in Indianapolis at midnight. By the evening commute, temperatures will have fallen to the low and mid 30s, with wind chills into the mid 20s. We don’t stop there, northerly winds and the lack of cloud cover (to hold the heat in at the Earth’s surface) tonight, will […]

  • A cool week ahead; tracking rain/snow potential

    Have the heavier coat or jacket ready, it’s going to be a chilly week. Afternoon highs will range from 5 to nearly 20 degrees below the average. We get a slight break in the chill Monday morning. Increasing clouds and southerly winds will keep temperatures from dropping below freezing, like we’ve done for the past four mornings. It will still be chilly though. Temperatures Monday morning will start in the upper 30’s and lower 40’s. Monday afternoon temperatures will feel […]

  • Below average temperatures maintain their grip on central Indiana

    Our first November weekend is shaping up to be quite a chilly one. Temperatures on Saturday afternoon were running nearly 10-degrees below the average. Will see only slight improvements to close the weekend on Sunday. Gusty winds are easing this evening. However, they will pickup once again by Sunday afternoon. As high pressure slides to our east, winds will be gusting out of the south near 25 mph at times. That southerly wind flow and a little more sunshine will […]

  • Rainy, windy and much colder for Halloween

    A wet and dreary Wednesday is underway. However, the uncomfortable conditions are just getting started. Temperatures tonight will fall into the upper 40’s by midnight. That will be the high temperature for Halloween as they will continue to tumble throughout the day. Wet Halloweens aren’t uncommon. In nearly 150 years of records, almost 50% of Halloween’s have come with rain. This year will be no exception. Low pressure to our south will move northeast over central Indiana on Thursday. Rain […]

  • Great start to the week; rain chances rise quickly

    After a very wet Saturday, Sunday shaped up to be a fantastic day! Clouds in the morning gave way to abundant afternoon sunshine. Unfortunately, the beautiful fall leaves across central Indiana appear to have taken a hit from the weekend wind and rain. However, there’s still time to enjoy the leaves before they all completely fall. Monday is going to be another sunny, beautiful day. The best day of the week! Highs will reach the mid 60’s, above average for […]

  • Rain chances ramping up into the weekend

    The sun is out and it’s looking a lot more like fall across central Indiana. The leaves are changing color very quickly. Enjoy them while you can, a few more windy days, and the chance for weekend showers/storms could rapidly strip these leaves from the trees. If you’re heading out this evening, it will be a great night to enjoy the Pacers first regular season home game. Tip-off is at 7 PM. You won’t need the umbrella but take the […]

  • Rain, t-storms and windy conditions move in Monday

    After a beautiful, calm weekend across central Indiana, we’re about to shake things up again. We’re tracking a weather system to our west that will bring us rain, t-storms and windy conditions as we start a new work week. While rain chances are most likely to arrive after the morning commute, still have the rain gear handy. You’re going to want it around as we head later into the morning and afternoon. Best timing for rain to move into our […]

  • Much warmer today before rain moves in

    Big changes in the forecast today! As high pressure to our moves toward the coast, our winds will shift out of the south/southwest. This will bring a strong surge of warmer air into central Indiana. However, it doesn’t last long. A cold front quickly follows. It will bring us scattered showers, the chance for a few thunderstorms and much cooler air again. Highs this afternoon will be warm as temperatures surge into the low and mid 70’s. Fall 2019 is […]

  • Feeling like Fall; Temperatures on a roller coaster this week

    A chilly start to the work week! Another Frost Advisory is in place this Monday morning until 9 AM. We’ve seen these advisories in place for the past several mornings. While we aren’t used to the cooler temperatures, after we had such a warm start to the month, this is actually the time of year we typically see our first frost. Sunday was only the 4th completely sunny day we’ve had this year. That abundant sunshine is carrying over into […]
