  • A quiet start to the week; more wintry weather ahead

    The snow showers have moved on but not before they left many of us with around a half a foot of snowfall on the ground. The snow pack will take a while to melt away, and the weather these next few days, isn’t going to do much to help. The snow has pushed well off to our east and back in central Indiana, clouds are starting to break to our north and temperatures are we’re headed for a very chilly […]

  • It’s not over yet; tracking additional snow showers through the evening

    A snowy Saturday! You’ve likely been exercising your snow blowers or snow shoveling muscles throughout the day. Many have already seen over 5″ of snow, with more to come. This is the largest single day January snow we’ve seen, in Indianapolis, since the snowstorm of 2014. Back them, 11.4″ fell on the 5th and a whopping 26.9″ fell for the month. Snow is easing as dry air works its way in. However, another band of snow will pass through later […]

  • From Spring-like back to Winter this week

    If you’re a lover of snow, this season has been a bust, so far, for you. Indianapolis is running nearly 9″ short of the average snowfall by this time of year. We’ve only had 4 days that have produced more than a trace of snow. All of those added together have produced less than an inch of snow for the season, making this the least snowiest season since 2007. Don’t put the winter coat and gloves away just yet though. […]

  • Cooler finish to the weekend; tracking change from Spring-like back to Winter

    Is it Spring or Winter? Well, it certainly FEELS a lot more like Spring. Our southwesterly winds and sunshine today pushed temperatures all the way up to 54° in Indianapolis. That is actually the average high temperature for March 20th, the first day of Spring. 2019 is off to a much warmer start than 2018. This time last year, we were off to the coldest open of a New Year on record. Highs temperatures on January 5th, 2018 only reached […]

  • Thursday morning commute concerns; very mild conditions ahead

    It’s certainly early January in Central Indiana. Temperatures are near average for the time of year and it’s dreary and damp outside. That’s how it will stay through the evening hours. A few areas of drizzle possible throughout the afternoon and early evening hours too. However, sunshine and a big warm-up are on the way. Not before the chance for a few slick spots by early tomorrow morning though. Clouds will begin to decrease overnight. As we lose our “blanket” […]

  • Travel concerns for morning commuters; warming up this week

    Welcome to the New Year! We’re certainly cooler today but it could be worse. Think back to just one year ago. 2018 started out with frigid temperatures. Lows making it down to -1° and a high temperature of only 4°. While we may not have hit 60°, like we did on New Year’s Eve, when you put it into perspective, our high of 41° isn’t all that bad. It’s even still above average for this time of year. More unseasonable […]

  • Windy and wet finish to 2018; big changes to start 2019

    After a very wet New Year’s Eve, the main concern for the rest of the night will be the winds. We are under a wind advisory until midnight. Winds already gusting just shy of 50 mph in some areas. Have a flashlight ready, winds like these could easily knock tree limbs down, causing power outages. Duke Energy is reporting over 1,900 customers are without power near Greenwood. Up north near Russiaville, over 1,500 are without power. IPL is reporting nearly […]

  • A quiet weekend but tracking New Year’s Eve rain

    What a day! We went from a Spring-like feel very early this morning, back to Winter by this afternoon. Temperatures fell into the mid 30’s, right around average for this time of year, during the afternoon and have continued to fall into the evening. Overall, the warm morning temperatures will still put today in the books as the 17th consecutive day above average. Winter Weather Alerts have significantly decreased but there are still a few trouble spots around the country. […]

  • A windy evening, more wet weather developing

    Snow and strong storms are creating headaches across the county. Even here, across Central Indiana, that system brought us a good bit of rain and windy conditions. A Wind Advisory is in place through 10 O’clock tonight. We’ve already seen areas with winds gusting at or above 60 mph. Make sure your lawn decorations and lawn furniture are anchored down, or you may lose them! The bulk of the rain is moving out of Central Indiana after it but down […]
