TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with clouds decreasing in the early morning hours. A hard freeze will likely occur for many with low temperatures in the mid to upper 20s.

TOMORROW: Partly to mostly cloudy skies. There will be a chance of a few flurries/sprinkles in north central Indiana. High temperatures in the upper 30s.

8-DAY FORECAST: Plenty of nice days for the work week with multiple overnight lows below freezing. Temperatures rebound into the 50s for multiple afternoons. The next chance of rain will be a scattered one on Friday. Right now, next weekend is dry.

Rain expected Tuesday, additional activity to move in late this week


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A nice start to the workweek is what we experienced for our Monday as we were near normal and had a light breeze. However, more active weather is ahead Tuesday and then again late this week.

Monday night: Cloud cover will build back into our area following what was a sunny Monday. We can’t rule out a few light showers during the overnight hours.

Lows will dip into the upper 40s.

Tuesday: We look to start off dry for our Tuesday, but rain will overspread the state beginning closer to mid-late morning. Rain will slowly move south throughout the afternoon and evening hours. A few rumbles of thunder are also possible.

Rain totals will stay around or under half an inch for tomorrow.

Highs will not be able to get back into the 60s in some spots due to the rain. There will also be a breezy wind out of the southwest that could gust up to 25-35 MPH at times.

Wednesday: We’ll flip right back to dry weather for our Wednesday. Skies will turn mostly sunny, but we will once again see temperatures warm into the upper 50s. This will be due to a northerly wind that will be just enough to hold down numbers a bit.

8-Day Forecast: It won’t take long for temperatures to embark on another warming trend. We look to get into the low to mid 60s Thursday before we end the workweek with highs around 70. However, an active pattern is set to get into the mix for the final weekend of April. Rain and storm chances increase for the second half of Friday, and those chances will hang around for Saturday and Sunday. Some showers may persist into Monday. Severe weather is not expected at this time, but this could change. We’re also going to have highs that push into the mid to upper 70s this weekend too.

Missing kayaker’s body found along White River, second man remains missing


INDIANAPOLIS — After more than five days of searching, rescue crews have recovered the body of a kayaker reported missing in the White River last week.  

Two kayakers, both men, were reported missing last week. They were identified as Solomon Shirley, 22, and Marcus Robinson, 30.

Shirley was found by a passerby Monday, April 22 near the West Michigan Street bridge, about a mile from the low-head dam where the men were last reported to be seen.

The search continues for Robinson.

“Our officers will continue … we will be out here on the water every single day,” said Lt. Angela Goldman, an Indiana Department of Natural Resources conservation officer. “We have been scouring the river from (the dam) all the way down to the rock dam at Washington Street.”

Search efforts began after a witness called 911 to report seeing the kayaks capsize at Emrichsville Dam and the men ejected from the boats and into the water as they traveled over the dam. The occupants never surfaced.

The Indianapolis Fire Department’s dive team was dispatched at 8:35 p.m. April 16 and sent boats into the river near West New York and Limestone streets west of downtown Indianapolis.

Firefighters found one blue and one orange kayak just south of the train tracks near the bank, the fire department said in a news release late Tuesday. 

Attempts to locate the men stretched for the next several days and the search was marked with crews using sonar imaging to scan the river’s murky depths, a helicopter and drones.
