It is a hot and humid early evening across central Indiana. Temperatures are near 90 degrees. It will stay hot and humid this evening. Temperatures will still be near 80 degrees by 11pm.  Our Indianapolis Indians have 2 games left of their current home stand.  One game is tonight and the other is Wednesday afternoon.  Be prepared for heat and humidity, if you are going to either game.  Temperatures tonight will be in the middle and upper 80s from first pitch through the ninth inning.
Radar is quiet locally, but we do expect a few complexes of storms from the Northern Plains through the Great Lakes this evening and overnight. There is a slight risk for this area, including the northern quarter of Indiana tonight. This similar area will be under a slight risk for severe weather on Wednesday too.
The wake-up temperature will be in the lower 70s on Wednesday, with temperatures climbing into the middle 80s by noon. Highs on Wednesday are forecast near 90 degrees.
With the heat of Wednesday afternoon, Futuretrak13 shows the chance for a few showers and storms. The chance for afternoon showers and storms will increase later in the week.
We have storm chances lingering into the weekend in the Skytrak13 7 day forecast. Temperatures will be near 90 degrees on Thursday and in the middle and upper 80s through the weekend.

Once the cold front moves out, a milder air mass arrives.  This will mean lower humidity levels for Friday and most of the weekend.
