INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The 90 degree temperature trend continues into Saturday before we work in a cooldown with rain chances returning early next week.

Friday night: Mostly clear and mild with a light breeze. Lows in the mid 60s.

Saturday: Mostly sunny to partly cloudy. Can’t rule out a couple of stray showers east of Indy. Hot with highs in the low 90s.

Sunday: Staying on the toasty side through Sunday with plenty of sunshine and highs in the mid to upper 80s.

8-Day Forecast: Cooler air will ride into the state through the first half of next week. A front will slide in from the north by Tuesday bringing the chance for a few showers. Highs slip into the upper 70s by Wednesday before we find ourselves back near the mid 80s next Friday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The hottest air of the year is on our way to end the workweek and into the first half of this weekend.

Thursday night: Mostly clear and mild tonight with light winds. Lows in the mid 60s.

Friday: The first 90 degree day of the year for Indy arrives to close out the workweek. Despite humidity levels falling a little bit for Friday, it will still feel uncomfortable due to the heat alone. Highs in the low 90s with lots of sunshine.

Saturday: Hardly much changes for Saturday with the continuation of 90 degree temperatures. One notable difference with Saturday will be winds turning breezy out of the northeast after the lunch hour.

8-Day Forecast: Temperatures start to gradually back off starting Sunday with highs in the upper 80s. We’ll fall towards the mid 80s by Monday before a cold front passes through early Tuesday. This will bring a chance for some showers early Tuesday. Highs will be in the low 80s for Tuesday and Wednesday before we see another warmup by the latter half of next week.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We had a hot and humid Wednesday with scattered rain and storms as we are closing out May. Hot temperatures will be on deck for the first little bit of June.

Wednesday night: Activity will quickly die out after sunset. Lows in the mid 60s.

Thursday: Expect a toasty start to June with highs once again pushing into the upper 80s. We can’t rule out a few stray showers/storms during the afternoon and evening hours.

Friday: The end to the workweek will feature among the hottest air of the year. Dew points will fall into the upper 40s to low 50s on Friday, but this will allow us to warm into the low 90s.

8-Day Forecast: Saturday will feature a copy and paste forecast from Friday with highs once again in the low 90s. Temperatures will back off slightly into the mid 80s by next Monday. Additional rain and storm chances will slide in for the first half of next week. Highs will hang around the low to mid 80s for much of next week.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The heat and humidity will continue to build going into June with 90s ahead in the near term forecast.

Tuesday night: Mild and mostly clear conditions are expected for tonight with lows in the mid 60s.

Wednesday: We’re in for a hot close to May on Wednesday. Higher humidity and plenty of sunshine will remained locked into place. There is potential for pop-up showers and storms during the afternoon hours as well. Highs will rise into the upper 80s.

Thursday: Rinse and repeat weather from Wednesday will be in store for Thursday to open the month of June. Expect another afternoon in the upper 80s with the chance for spotty showers and storms.

8-Day Forecast: Even though we will see a slight decrease in the muggy meter going into the weekend, this will allow for temperatures to sneak into the low 90s. Friday and Saturday look to be two of the hottest days of the year with temps in the 90s. By early next week, we’ll watch for a cooldown with additional rain and storm chances. Due to the lack of rain as of the past 10 or so days, there is potential for a rapid onset drought over the next several days.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The streak of comfortable weather we recently enjoyed is transitioning towards uncomfortable conditions with building heat and humidity as we go into June.

Monday night: Skies will turn partly cloudy tonight with lows only dropping into the low 60s.

Tuesday: Temperatures will continue to warmup through our Tuesday, and the muggy meter will also climb a bit. We can’t rule out spotty showers/storms, but expect a mainly dry, fairly warm, and more humid day. Highs are set to rise into the upper 80s.

Wednesday: The end to May will be more on the toasty side with higher humidity values and a chance for rogue showers/storms. It will definitely feel more unsettled with highs once again pushing into the upper 80s.

8-Day Forecast: We will enter June on a hot and uncomfortable note with temps around 90 degrees for Thursday. Although the muggy meter drops a slight bit Friday, the heat will synch in further with highs expected to be in the low 90s. A similar picture will develop for the first full weekend of June with slightly lower humidity and highs in the low 90s. It is worth noting that Indianapolis has not seen a 90 degree day yet this year. Unfortunately, rain chances are very low the next several days.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Pleasant weather is ahead for Indy 500 race weekend before we turn on the heater for next week with much warmer air ahead.

Friday night: Another beautiful night is on our way under mainly clear skies. Lows in the low 50s.

Saturday: Slightly warmer temperatures are ahead for Legends Day, but it will still feel tolerable due to low humidity. Mostly sunny with highs in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Indy 500 Race Day: Skies will become partly to mostly cloudy, which will lead way to a cooler day for some of the state. There could be a stray shower or two at most, but we are expecting a mainly dry and fantastic day for the race. Highs in the mid 70s.

8-Day Forecast: The pleasant weather trend comes to a screeching halt beyond Memorial Day on Monday. We’ll rise into the mid 80s Monday before we see the hottest air of the year settle in with near 90° temperatures mid to late next week. Spotty showers will also be possible from next Wednesday to next Friday due to the increasing heat.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The ongoing fantastic weather is set to persist into Indy 500 race weekend before our attention turns toward building heat next week.

Thursday night: Mostly clear and cool. A tad breezy as well. Lows in the mid 40s.

Friday: Spectacular day ahead with bright skies and near normal temperatures. If you’re heading out to Card Day, enjoy the marvelous conditions. It will be a tad breezy once again too with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

Indy 500 Race Weekend: Brilliant weather trend rolls on into Legends Day on Saturday with low humidity and abundant sunshine. Highs will scoot into the upper 70s. Race day on Sunday will feature increased cloud cover with highs around 80. We’re still looking to stay mainly dry, but if anything develops, it will be very isolated showers.

8-Day Forecast: Temperatures will then begin to turn hotter going into next week. We’ll get close to the 90 degree mark from next Wednesday through next Friday. A few spotty showers are also possible next Wednesday and Thursday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — After going through another warm day, we’ll welcome a dry cold front that will give us fantastic weather going into race weekend.

Wednesday night: Temperatures are set to quickly fall as a front travels southward tonight. We’ll eventually find ourselves in the upper 40s to low 50s by sunrise Thursday. Skies will remain mostly clear, and winds will become breezy with gusts up to 25 MPH at times.

Thursday: We’ll begin our Thursday with jacket weather before we ride into a gorgeous afternoon. It will be a tad breezy, but abundant sunshine and highs in the upper 60s/low 70s will make way for it being pleasant.

Friday: Amazing weather continues into the end of the workweek with lots of bright skies and breezy winds. It will be a comfortable day as a whole for those who plan to attend Carb Day activities. Highs look to warm into the mid to upper 70s.

8-Day Forecast: Temperatures will continue to gradually warm throughout race weekend. Highs are set to get back into the 80s on race day Sunday. We’re still watching an upper low to our southeast that will at least increase cloud cover to an extent potentially. Rain chances on Sunday overall are extremely low, and if anything were to pop-up, it would be very isolated showers at most. The next big story in the forecast will be building warm air starting Memorial Day and carrying through the end of May on Wednesday. We could even get close to 90 by then too.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One more summerlike day is ahead for the workweek before a frontal passage brings in cooler air that will linger into race weekend. Then, we’ll keep an eye on a nearby system by race day Sunday.

Tuesday night: Another quiet night is ahead under mostly clear skies. Lows in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Wednesday: We’ll encounter another very warm day with slightly higher humidity values. Going into the latter half of Wednesday, a front will progress southward through the state. This will mainly be a dry front, but a spotty shower is not entirely out of the question. Winds will also become breezy with gusts up to 20-25 MPH by Wednesday night. Highs in the mid 80s.

Thursday: You’ll likely need the jacket to start your Thursday as temps will only be in the upper 40s to low 50s around sunrise. Highs will only work their way into the upper 60s to low 70s with winds staying on the breezy side.

8-Day Forecast: Fantastic temperatures remain with us to end the workweek as highs approach the upper 70s Friday. Indy 500 race weekend for now looks mainly dry with highs in the upper 70s Saturday and low 80s on race day Sunday. We are still monitoring an upper low to our southeast that could scoot close enough to us to produce spotty shower chances Sunday and Monday. We’ll warm further into the mid 80s by Memorial Day next Monday.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — During the late morning hours on May 22, 2008, a very large tornado caused major and extensive damage from Gilcrest to Windsor, CO.

This EF3 tornado carved a near 25 mile path and was up to one mile wide at times. One person was killed with 78 others injured. Life-threatening hail up to baseball sized also accompanied the tornado.

This tornado was very unusual for Colorado as a whole in several different ways. First, the direction this took was abnormal as tornadoes typically move from southwest to northeast. There was a more north-northwestward component of motion as this event took place.

Another rare aspect of the Windsor tornado was its enormous width that Colorado doesn’t generally see. In fact, this is still the widest tornado to ever occur in Colorado. This also has the second longest damage path of any tornado in state history.

Here are some of the other quick facts about the Windsor tornado:

It also became the first deadly and EF3 tornado in Colorado since Mar 28, 2007. Many people were bewildered at the sight of this tornado when they came face-to-face with it.
