More melting for Monday! Temps stayed above freezing last night into this morning. That also happened Friday night into Saturday morning, and it was the first time it had happened since December 21. Today should be the warmest day in Central Indiana since December 28. Highs will move into the upper 40s, with some low […]
HAPPY NEW YEAR! Snow late this afternoon and tonight. It may begin with some rain mixed in. Snow diminishes late Thursday morning, with snow showers the rest of the day. Final totals of 2-4 inches. There is a chance of heavier snow Sunday. Michiana: Heaviest snow will end late tonight, with final totals of 3-7 […]
UPDATE: Here’s the show! I’m guesting on the Hammer & Nigel show tonight at 9p. You can swing by Coaches Tavern downtown to join in. The boys tell me there’s no cover and there will be beer specials. (There had better be Manhattan specials.) You can watch/listen via ustream here. The show is unedited, uncensored, […]
When I decided to go 100 percent free-lance two years ago I obviously couldn’t be “WXXX meteorologist Paul Poteet” anymore. I was going to have to live or die on my own weather identity. I decided to call myself “Indiana’s Weatherman” because I no longer belonged to just one tv weather brand…I belonged to everyone […]
Finally…some rain earlier this morning. The cold front is moving through this afternoon pretty quietly. That front will drop the humidity again by Sunday afternoon, even though it’ll be hot and sunny.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch and a Heat Advisory are in place this afternoon for most of Indiana. Heat index temps will be closing in on 100. Today will be the 11th day of 90 degree or hotter weather in Indianapolis. We average 17 over the course of a summer. The hottest Indy temp so far […]
Had fun Sunday at the Fishers Freedom Festival. Thanks for all the polite waving and the shouting. Was it my imagination or was the crowd a little rowdy this year? Maybe it was the heat. El Oh El. My favorite was the woman who yelled that I hadn’t “posted on Facebook for 15 minutes.” There […]
Sunday’s gonna be hot and humid. Expect some scattered thunderstorms across Indiana this afternoon. A cold front’s coming tonight, and I’d be ready for more widespread and perhaps stronger rain and storms pushing into the air as the front sags southeast late this afternoon and evening. Heavy rain is possible and there is a slight […]
On June 2, 1990, a large and widespread tornado outbreak occurred across parts of the Midwest and Ohio Valley. Through the early morning of June 3, there were a total of 65 tornadoes, 37 of which occurred across Indiana.
With another day that feels more “March” than “May” you may be wondering about this month. I did the crunching and confirm your cool hunch. After seven days of above average temps at the start of the month, Indianapolis has only seen that kind of heat on another two days. The dark blue bars show […]
It was just as cold and windy as it was supposed to be Saturday. The Kenyans asked me to stay out of the Mini Marathon this year so they’d have a better shot, and their plan seems to have paid off. Hope you had a good walk/run if you participated. My running partner (aka my […]
Mother’s Day starts frosty this year. An area of high pressure muscled in Saturday night. The good news is: skies cleared and winds eased after a blustery fall-like Saturday. The bad news is: temps cold enough to support patchy frost. Lows will be around 37 as far south as Anderson, Carmel, and Crawfordsville. It should […]
