Indiana’s Weather For Monday

June 25, 2012

I’m happy to announce a breather. Temps will “only” be around average today and tomorrow. A cold front went through overnight, but it was kinda like that tree falling in the forest…

Temperatures fall today, relative to yesterday’s official high of 92. Indianapolis still hasn’t gotten past 93 this season, but it appears that will change Thursday.

BIG time.

I’m forecasting 100 for my Evansville radio station Thursday and Friday, and Indy won’t be far behind at 97.

So far this summer we’ve had eleven 90+ days. Eight of them have come this month, and three in May. Normally by the end of June we would average about 4 of those days.

Was your weekend packed? I appreciated all the waves in the Fishers Freedom Festival Parade yesterday. BTW: I was measuring 93 degrees in Fishers at Parade time. Humidity was up a notch Sunday compared to Saturday, but dew point temperatures still never got past the 50s, so hopefully the sweat stains weren’t too bad for those along the route. Hey, you gotta raise your hand to wave.

Tropical Storm Debby was busy this weekend. Gainesville Florida measure 6.95 inches of rain. The Tampa Bay area has dealt with flooding. There have been 22 reports of tornadoes in Florida as of Monday morning. The upside of all this: Much of the state has been in a drought.

Best thing about this year? My choices: So many summer days with low humidity, and no major central Indiana severe weather. Over 1,000 tornadoes hit the USA in April and May last year. The April outbreak in the South was historic in number of tornadoes, injuries, and fatalities. Less than one month later an EF-5 tornado destroyed parts of Joplin, MO.

This year? The number of confirmed tornadoes in April was around average, at 150. It was over 700 last year! In May the preliminary count is 139, but that will fall once duplicate reported are sorted out. May was especially quiet with respect to tornadoes, perhaps making up for the fast start earlier this year in some locations.

The average number of twisters in May/June combined is 515 across the country. This year, it probably will be less than half that.

The average high today is 84 and the average low is 65. The records are 102 and 46. The sunrise time is 6:19 and the sunset is 9:17.

9 (Very high.)

The count should remain “low-medium” through Wednesday.
Today: Becoming mostly sunny. High 84.

Today: Becoming mostly sunny. High 84.

Tonight: Clear. Low 55.

Tuesday: Sunny. High 82.

Tuesday Night: Clear. Low 59.

Wednesday: Sunny. High 89.

Wednesday Night: Mostly clear. Low 67.

Thursday: Mostly sunny. HOT! High 97.

Thursday Night: Mostly clear. Low 75.

Friday: Mostly to partly sunny. High 97.

Friday Night: Slight shower and storm chance. Low 75.

Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. Slight storm chances. High 92.

Saturday Night: Mostly clear. Low 72

Sunday: Mostly sunny. High 92.

I was in the car on my way to the bowling alley. My finred called me to tell me the shocking news because she knew how much i loved and respected Michael Jackson. He is my idol. The scary thing is that when she called to tell me I had my Michael Jackson CD playing in the car and the song gone too soon was playing. It honestly creeped me out. I nearly had to pull over after hearing the news. I was shocked and torn apart.RIP michael jackson. you will be missed. <3
