Triple Digit Heat Possible, Severe Storm Threat for Parts of Indiana

It’s another scorcher across Central Indiana! The temperature hit 93 at noon, with a heat index of 97. We were 5 degrees warmer today at noon than yesterday, which makes me lean toward a forecast close to 5 degrees warmer than yesterday’s high which hit 96.

That’s why I’ve nudged this afternoon’s high to 100 degrees in Indy. It could get even hotter for folks in Terre Haute with a high of 102!

A Heat Advisory covers areas from Terre Haute to Vincennes points west from 1-8 pm and an Excessive Heat Warning will be in effect from today through Thursday for the southwest part of the state. Heat index values 105+ will be possible. Here in Central Indiana, heat indices could reach 100+ this afternoon.

Most areas will stay dry today, but there is a slight risk of severe storms that now includes the Indy Metro. High winds and hail are the main threats with any isolated storms that fire late day – with a better chance overnight tonight.

Tomorrow, that slight risk of severe storms covers most of Central Indiana with scattered showers and storms possible.

By Wednesday, that risk lifts back northward as a front meanders across the state.

Our best chance of showers/storms could come late Thursday (severe possible the way it looks for now), then we get a break in the heat for late week into the weekend. That’s good news for spectators at the Brickyard 400. The day looks dry for Sunday with a high around 90, but Sunday night, some showers and storms are possible. We’ll be watching that timing closely as the race approaches.

Take care, keep cool, and keep an eye to the sky! We need rain, but we don’t want anything severe.

Heat Builds, Storm Chances Increase

We hit 96 Sunday in Indianapolis and the heat and humidity will creep up even more for the work week. A Heat Advisory is in effect from Terre Haute to Vincennes Monday from 1 to 8pm, and an Excessive Heat Warning covers Southwest Indiana from Monday through Thursday. Heat index values may surge above 105 there…and we’ll likely have heat indices above 100 here in Central Indiana. Actual air temps may reach upper 90s on Monday for Indy, with 100 possible for Terre Haute and Lafayette and other parts of Western Indiana.

While most areas will stay dry Monday, there could be some storms crossing the northern tier of the state – some of those storms could be strong to severe and a Slight Risk of Severe Storms covers areas from Muncie to Fort Wayne points north and east. The best chance for Central Indiana to get showers and storms looks like Tuesday (Scattered) and again Thursday (late – possibly severe), but at least a 20% chance looks possible from Monday night through Friday.

A front moving through late Thursday/early Friday will bring cooler air into Central Indiana that could last into Brickyard 400 weekend. For now, I’m forecasting a high of 90 for race day with a slight chance of showers and storms late.

Near Triple Digit Heat & Multiple Rain Chances this Week

The 90s have become the norm this summer, and even warmer air is on the way.

The 90s have become the norm this summer, and even warmer air is on the way.

Saturday was the 34th time we’ve hit 90 degrees or warmer.  We’ll add many more days to that tally in the coming week.  The record for the most 90 degree days was set back  in 1983 with 58.  We’ll more than likely come close  to, if not beat  that number this year!

Highs will reach the mid 90s today with partly cloudy skies.  There’s a 10% chance of an isolated shower or storm, especially in our Northern viewing area.  Most spots will stay absolutely dry, so don’t count on rain.

Tonight, temps drop to the low 70s with partly cloudy skies.

Monday, the heat is on.  Highs will reach the upper 90s, but feel like 100 to 105 thanks to the humidity.  The day looks dry with a chance of showers and storms late Monday night.

The mid 90s stick around for the rest of the work week with a 30-40% chance of showers and storms through Thursday.  Some storms may be strong to severe, so check back with the forecast often!

Isolated showers and storms may remain Friday and Saturday, we’ll keep an eye on the rain chances that won’t be drought busting, but will help Central Indiana.

Another Heat Wave Begins

Despite our pleasantly cool start this morning in the 50s and 60s, we STILL managed to hit 91 degrees this afternoon. It was our 34th day of 90+ heat this year. The average is 15, last year we had 42, and the record to beat (which is feasible based on the way this summer has been going) is 58 set in 1983. Plan on another week’s worth of 90+ heat in your 7-day.

Temps to our west hit mid 90s to triple digits today, and some of that heat will be building eastward in the days to come.

While no advisories have been issued for Central Indiana, the far Southwest part of the state is under an Excessive Heat Warning Monday through Thursday where heat index values are expected to soar above 105!

As for rain, we will stay dry through the weekend, but we do have a chance of rain starting late Monday night with daily rain chances into Friday as a front meanders across the state. We need it! We’re running nearly 6 3/4″ below average since June 1st.

Though rain chances look decent for the work week, the 90-day outlook from the Climate Prediction Center does not give us good news. The August-September-October period is expected to be drier than average and our drought is expected to persist or even intensify.

Plan on mid to upper 90s tomorrow. Hot, but nowhere near the record of 106 set in 1901.

And get ready for the return of triple digits in spots like Lafayette and Terre Haute by Monday! Here in Indy, if we hit 98, we’ll be shy of the record 102 set in 1934.

Here’s a look at your WTHR-TV 7-day. Hot, humid, but at least there’s the hope for some rain!

Speaking of rain, you’ve gotta appreciate the humor of tonight’s WTHR-TV Hoosier Pic at 6. Lynn Sim posted this on our Facebook Page guiding the rain to exactly the right spot! Actually, the sign is part of the Race Across INdiana bicycle race, but it’s still pretty funny.

Stay cool and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

The 90s Settle In & Rain Chances Return

Get ready to start counting 90 degree days again.

Get ready to start counting 90 degree days again.

Highs will top out around 90 today with mostly sunny skies.  So far this year Indianapolis has hit 90 degrees or warmer 33 times.  The average is 15, and the most in a year happened in 1983 when we topped 90 degrees 58 times.

Tonight skies remain mostly clear with temps dropping to the low to mid 60s.

Sunday will be more humid and much hotter as temps soar into the mid 90s.  There’s a 10% chance of an isolated storm, don’t count on rain in your backyard.

Monday the heat rolls on with highs in the upper 90s and a 20% chance of storms developing Monday night into Tuesday.

Tuesday through Friday, the mid 90s stick, but we’ll also be watching for a 30% chance for showers and storms each day.

Coolest in More Than a Month: A One-Day Cool Down

Fog, low clouds, patchy drizzle and some stray showers have held temperatures down in a big way through midday. At noon, we were only 72 degrees! By late afternoon, highs may only nudge into the low 80s – the coolest since June 13th when it only hit 80.

Some parts of Northeast Indiana may only make 70s for highs, while mid to upper 80s look likely for areas in Western and Southwestern Indiana.

Don’t get used to the cooler air. After a cool start tomorrow in the 60s, we could top out in the low 90s for Saturday and mid 90s on Sunday. It looks like a dry weekend ahead for all of Central Indiana.

And though we picked up officially 0.68″ in Indy the last two days, we still need more! Our rain has only made a tiny dent in the drought.

The drought monitor released yesterday shows more than half of Indiana in an Extreme Drought. It will take a lot more rain over a lot longer stretch to ease these conditions. We’re still 2.3″ below average rainfall for July, 6.46″ below average since June 1st, and 8.8″ below average since January 1st.

Our best chances of more much-needed rain in your WTHR-TV 7-day arrive Tuesday and Wednesday with scattered showers/storms possible. There is also plenty of heat in the next week…the exception: today. Enjoy it.

Strong to Severe Storms Today

Strong to severe storms are expected across Central Indiana today.

Indianapolis’ dry streak is over.  Wednesday Indy picked up .40″ of rain.  That brings our total since June 1st up to .49″ of rain.  More rain chances are coming our way today, but they won’t wipe out the drought that’s blanketing the state.

Strong to severe storms are expected across Central Indiana today.

Highs will reach the 90s with scattered storms developing throughout the day.  Some storms may be strong to severe across Central Indiana with damaging wind, hail, heavy rain and frequent lightning.  All of Central Indiana is under a slight risk for severe storms.

Tonight scattered showers and storms wind down with temps falling into the 60s.

Friday, cooler air moves in as highs top out in the mid 80s.

We’ll be dry this weekend as temps push into the low 90s again.

Our next best chance for rain arrives Tuesday as temps push into the mid 90s.

Triple Digit Heat & Storm Chances

More triple digit heat is headed to Central Indiana, with a chance for scattered showers and storms.

Highs will top out near 100 degrees today with scattered storms expected to develop for the afternoon and evening.  Today’s record high is 100 set in 1954.  Widespread severe weather is not expected, but an isolated severe storm is possible with damaging wind and hail.  A Heat Advisory is in effect until 8 tonight, at times it could feel up to 110 degrees with the humidity.

Tuesday, Indianapolis hit 101 degrees, making it the seventh time this year we’ve hit the century mark!  Even though a few lucky spots received heavy rain, the official measuring spot for Indy remained dry, so our rain total since June 1st is still only .09″.

Scattered showers and storms are possible tonight as temps settle into the low 70s.

Thursday we’ll have another chance for scattered showers and storms as highs top out in the low 90s.  Some storms may be strong to severe.

Friday we’ll see partly cloudy skies with highs around 90.

The weekend looks dry with highs in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees.

Our next chance of rain moves in Tuesday.

It’s Another Record High!

Our temp in Indianapolis has made it to 101 degrees this afternoon so far. That beats the old record high of 100 set in 1887. We could be in record territory again tomorrow (the record is 100 set in 1954).

Some isolated storms have developed this afternoon and we have a chance at scattered showers and storms tomorrow afternoon.

Our Heat Advisory continues ’til 8pm tomorrow.

Hang in there!
