Weekend Heat & Storms, that Bring RELIEF

Whew… get ready for another hot one across Central Indiana today! I’m forecasting a high of 97, the record is 96 set back in 1913.

Whew… get ready for another hot one across Central Indiana today!  I’m forecasting a high of 97, the record is 96 set back in 1913.  Clouds will increase as we head into the afternoon/evening, and there’s a slight chance for a pop up shower or thunderstorm late this afternoon into the evening.  Most spots will stay absolutely dry.

Overnight, the temps drop to the low 70s, but cloud cover will increase, and by daybreak showers and thunderstorms will be on the radar.

A cold front will push through the state Sunday, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms.  Some storms may be strong to severe, but we’re not looking at widespread severe storms.  Highs Sunday will reach the low 80s.

Monday looks great!  Highs Monday top out in the low to mid 70s.

The great temps stick around, but rain comes back to the forecast by Thursday.

Heat Advisory & Weekend Storms

A Heat Advisory is in effect for all of Central Indiana from noon until 8pm. It will feel like the triple digits, with plenty of sunshine.

A Heat Advisory is in effect for all of Central Indiana from noon until 8pm.  It will feel like the triple digits, with plenty of sunshine.

Highs will reach the upper 90s with mostly sunny skies.  The record for today is 100, yesterday we hit 99, so we’ll be mighty close to tying that record!  As we head into the afternoon, it may feel as warm as 105 degrees.

Overnight, skies remain clear, but temps only cool off to the low 70s.

Saturday, clouds increase throughout the day, and late Saturday afternoon/night showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop.  A few isolated storms may be strong to severe.  The rain lasts through Saturday night, and into Sunday.  The entire day doesn’t look to be a washout, but the morning looks stormy. 

A cold front is triggering the showers and thunderstorms, and behind it, is RELIEF!  Highs Sunday will only reach the low 80s… and look at next week… the 70s!
