INDIANAPOLIS (WISH)– This February has made it into the top 5 warmest on record in Indianapolis. 2017 still holds the top spot as the warmest on record.
Let’s break it down a little more. The average temperature for the month was 40.2 degrees which is almost 8 degrees above normal. We did break a record high on February 22nd of 71 degrees. As far as precipitation goes we were right around normal for the month when it comes to rainfall. We received 2.55″ of rainfall which is just a tenth of an inch above normal. We really saw a big deficit in snowfall.
February 2023, ends up being only the 6th February in history with only a trace of snow. The last February with a trace was back 74 years ago in 1949.
Here’s a look at the temperature and precipitation outlook for March 2023. The Climate Prediction Center is forecasting slightly below normal temperatures for the month of March across much of the Great Lakes and back to the Pacific Northwest. Above normal temperatures are possible along the Gulf Coast. So the warm temperatures we’ve been experiencing here in Indiana may not continue into the first part of spring.
We may see above normal precipitation for the month of March across Indiana, Illinois and western Kentucky.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Look for a great end to the weekend before a system brings gusty winds and rain on Monday.
SUNDAY: We’re starting off frosty with many spots right around the freezing mark. Sunshine will continue for much of the day. It will be warmer than Saturday with highs climbing into the low and middle 50s.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Winds begin to increase ahead of our next system. Look for mostly cloudy skies with showers developing overnight. Lows fall into the middle 40s.
MONDAY: Showers and even a few thunderstorms will be possible for the first part of your day. Some of the thunderstorms may be on the stronger side with damaging winds. The Storm Prediction Center does have much of central Indiana under a slight risk that some of the thunderstorms may reach severe criteria. Non-thunderstorm winds may gust up to 50 mph. A wind advisory has been issued for much of central Indiana from 7 a.m. Monday until 7 p.m. Showers and storms will taper off later in the day. Highs will reach the lower 60s.
TUESDAY: We’re in store for a dry day under partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will fall into the lower 50s, which is still above-normal for this time of the year.
8-DAY FORECAST: Temperatures will soar even higher on Wednesday with highs climbing into the middle and upper 60s. It looks to be dry on Wednesday but we’re keeping our eyes on another system for the end of the week. This one may draw in some cooler air and bring us a chance of some rain, snow or both for Friday. Stay tuned to the forecast.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — We have some light precipitation moving across Indiana that will exit right around daybreak. Look for some clouds to start the day but overall a nice and mild weekend is on tap for most of the area.
TODAY: Clouds start off your Saturday morning. A little light precipitation is possible early but will come to an end right around daybreak. Sunshine comes out heading into the afternoon. It will be warmer today with highs a little above normal in the upper 40s near 50.
TONIGHT: Skies remain partly cloudy. We stay dry but we have another chilly night. Lows fall into the middle 30s. SUNDAY: We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day and even warmer temperatures for the end of the weekend. Highs climb into the middle 50s. Clouds increase late Sunday evening ahead of our next system.
MONDAY: This system moving across the southern Great Lakes is going to bring us warmer temperatures on Monday along with rain chances as well. We may even hear a few claps of thunder as a line of rain moves across Indiana. Look for Highs on Monday in the lower 60s.
8 DAY FORECAST: Temperatures continue to stay above normal through the rest of the week. Look for a some sunshine and dry conditions through the middle of the week. Temperatures ride a roller coaster from the 50s Tuesday to the 60s Wednesday. More rain chances arrive Thursday and Friday.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s been a mild February and one that hasn’t produced much snow here in Indiana. So far for the month Indianapolis has only picked up a trace of snow officially at the airport. With only a few days left in February and temperatures well above normal there’s little to no chance for additional snowfall for the month.
The last time Indianapolis only saw a trace of snowfall during February was back in 1949. Other years where there was only a trace recorded were 1935, 1932, 1931 and 1918.
Other cities across the state are also seeing a snow deficit. South Bend has only picked up 0.3″ of snowfall running more than a foot below normal. Fort Wayne has seen only a quarter of an inch and Evansville has picked up only a trace.
As far as temperatures go if the month were to end right now Indianapolis would see the 8th warmest February on record. Above normal temperatures are predicated this weekend and into the last few days of February so our ranking may continue to go up. The warmest February on record was back in 2017 where the average temperature reached 43.3 degrees.
