Warm Weather Continues

The Rain has moved through and once again left it’s humidity behind. There were talks of 90 degree days, those are not going to be coming, but things start to get hot by Thursday.

There are no storms coming our way over the next week, and you’ll be able to see the sun. The wife has asked me when I’m going to shut down the pool and the answer I have is “Not next week.”

keynote_5day-copy-005Tomorrow – High close to 80 under mostly cloudy skies.

Monday – We push into the lower 80’s, with sunny skies, over night lows will be into the mid to low 60’s.

Tuesday – Rinse and repeat, with clouds moving in. They will burn off during the afternoon with clearing skies during the evening.

Wednesday – Sunny skies, high of 83 low of 63.

Thursday – Warmest day of the forecast high of 86, some places could see lower 90’s.

Nice Days Give Way to Thunderstorms & Humidity

Don’t get to used to the nice weather as the humidity is going to return.

We have have had a week of mild weather, with the return of football it has felt perfect. The crisp cool evening air could have allowed the excuse to even bundle up for those of us that are “cold blooded”.

Nothing lasts long when it comes to weather across Indiana, things are of course changing. After three more days of this great weather, scattered thunderstorms are in the forecast for Thursday. With those storms humidity fills back in to make it sticky again.

9-4-16.001

Tomorrow : High of 88, with more urban area’s getting into the 90’s. Lows drop about 20 degress back to the upper 60’s under beautiful skies.

Tuesday : Is what I like to call “Rinse and Repeat”, I should just copy and paste Monday’s forecast here. High of 89, slightly warmer during the overnight.

Wednesday: Is going to be HOT, and could be one of the last hurrah’s for pool lovers. Keep the covers on during the overnight, and you might have a chance to get in during the day. High of 90, overnight low of 74.

Thursday : Scattered Thunderstorms, nothing severe expected, but HUMID! High of 85, and a low after the storms move through of 68

Friday : Storms move off with a High of 82

 

Hot, Sticky Days… Afternoon Thunderstorms

After tracking a tornadic super cell on Monday, things have been extremely busy around here at HoosierWX. Luckily when it comes to the tornadoes that touched down across the state no one was hurt, unfortunately there was damage to structures

Did you know though with the tornadoes that went through, they were all attributed to one Super Cell that cruised through. We got lucky that it moved through mostly rural parts of the state, and there was only one super cell storm.

Lets stop talking the past and look to what the weather is going to do over the next three days. It’s going to be rinse and repeat. Hot, humid days, and popup thunderstorms in the afternoon’s. It’s going to be a good weekend to also get in the pool as our time taking a dip is going to run out before it’s all said and done.


8-17-16

Thursday : Partly cloudy to start off the day, with clouds moving in and turning into popup thunderstorms with the daytime heating. Nothing severe is expected, High for the day 83.

Friday : Looks a lot like Thursday, clouds fill in through out the humid day, and then sporadic thunderstorms. High of 81.

Saturday : More stormy than Thursday and Friday, popup thunderstorms again will be the story of the day. Nothing severe expected with the storms. High for the day 77.
