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 […]
Let me be a good weather host and make you comfortable. It’s gonna be a nice day! Dew point temperatures will be closer to the upper 50s and 60 instead of the mid 60s, and that means less humidity. Hey, it would be a great day to run 13.1 miles, right? That Indianapolis dew point […]
POST-RACE UPDATE: Dew point temperatures ranged from 62-66 (pretty muggy) and winds ranged from 5-10mph. Fog and clouds gave way to partly sunny conditions. Temperatures: 7am 63 | 8am 65 | 9am 68 | 10am 71 (yellow flag comes out) | 11am 74 (ORIGINAL STORY) Expect a muggy Mini-Marathon today. If you’re running, you won’t […]

Several inches of rain and wind gusts to 70mph in the overnight and early morning hours of Friday caused Flood Warnings in west central Illinois and Eastern Iowa.

This should be the hottest day of the year so far in Indianapolis. So far, 84 has been the magic number. We hit it on March 21, April 3, and that’s where the thermometer stopped yesterday. It was three degrees shy of the record. (And my forecast.) I think there will be less clouds around […]
Records are within reach today! The Indianapolis record high for September 2 is 100, from 1953. It could easily be tied. Humidity will be higher than on Thursday. Dew point temperatures Thursday never got past 65 in Indy, plus there was a pretty good breeze. Good thing: the temperature reached 99 degrees at 3:44pm EDT […]
This chart shows why a Heat Advisory is in place for all of Central Indiana this afternoon from 1-8 pm. Highs will move into the low-mid 90’s, with dew point temperatures climbing into the 70’s. So: heat index numbers will run from 105-110. Chances of showers and storms are back, and afternoon storms Monday or […]
