We’ll have a slight chance for thunderstorms on Tuesday. Otherwise this will be a warm, humid week with a slight chance for isolated afternoon t-storms.
Highs will be in the 80s this week, and near 90 degrees this weekend with a stronger chance for storms.
Rain showers and thunderstorms are ending, and skies will become partly cloudy across Central Indiana tonight. However, we’re not done with the rain just yet! More moves in Monday and Tuesday.
How much rain did we pick up Sunday? Not much… and as advertised, we did get dry time in from time to time, especially in the afternoon.
Highs Sunday topped out in the 70s and low 80s.
Tonight the clouds will break and temps fall to the upper 60s with partly cloudy skies.
Monday and Tuesday isolated showers and storms are possible with temps in the low to mid 80s. The beginning of the week will NOT a washout by any means. And, there will be plenty of dry time, just keep the rain gear handy, especially Monday afternoon and during the day Tuesday.
The best day of the week will be Wednesday with temps around 80 and plenty of sunshine.
As we head towards the end of the week, the heat and humidity starts to build with highs in the upper 80s by the weekend, and very muggy conditions.
Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will increase across Central Indiana as we go through tonight into Sunday.
If you have evening plans, temps will remain mild, but keep the rain gear handy, as rain chances will be around, although it should only be a 20% chance of a shower or storm until midnight.
Tonight’s risk for severe weather stays west, but I wouldn’t rule a storm with small hail and gusty winds towards daybreak.
For Father’s Day, scattered showers and storms are likely through midday, with activity becoming more isolated as we head into the afternoon. Up to 1/2″ of rain is possible through Sunday evening.
Monday afternoon another disturbance comes our way that will bring rain chances into Tuesday.
Most of the work week looks dry and pleasant, but as we head into the weekend temps will be on the increase along with the humidity. On Saturday, there’s a 20% chance of an isolated shower or storm.
Do you have plans tonight? If so… the weather looks perfect!
We’ll start Saturday morning off dry, but as we head into the afternoon, scattered showers and storms will likely develop. As of right now, it doesn’t look like a complete washout, but off and on chances for rain and storms are there.
The severe weather threat for Saturday stays west, but we will watch the potential closely.
Late Saturday night into Sunday showers and storms are likely, and they will remain with us through the early afternoon of Father’s Day.
More rain and storms Monday, but by Tuesday the sunshine returns with temps a tad cooler than the 80s.
Some of the best weather across the country is here at home in Central Indiana today. If you missed the sunrise this morning you missed a good one.
You’re going to notice a huge change to the air outside. Temps are a good 15-20 degrees cooler in the 50s! Full sun will quickly warm into the 60s by 9am and 70s by noon.
Highs will top out in the mid/upper 70s this afternoon, with an increase in low level clouds.
The air remains comfortable the next 24-36 hours… resulting in another pleasant night in the 50s/lower 60s.
Saturday will be mostly dry, but toward sunset it’s fair game for a shower or storm to move in. But better rain chances arrive Saturday night into Sunday. Not great timing for Father’s Day unfortunately, with periods of showers and storms.
Storm chances remain in play Monday,before another cold front delivers more Canadian air for the middle of next week.
We’ll have highs near 80 and lows near 60 through the weekend.
Our next chance of thunderstorms comes Saturday night and Sunday and continues into early next week.
Scattered storms are moving out, and our severe weather risk has diminished. A few showers/storms may linger through the morning commute, then we dry out for the rest of the day.
Severe storm reports included flooding and damaging wind in north central Indiana. Some wind gusts in excess of 70mph were reported.
Flooding has been an issue in north central Indiana too. Here’s a look at rain totals through 4:30am.
A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect for our northern counties until 8am.
After a few morning showers and storms, skies will clear with partly cloudy skies and temps rebounding into the upper 70s. Winds will gust out of the northwest up to 25mph. Much drier air will be in place today, so it won’t feel as humid.
Friday looks perfect, and by Saturday we’re back in the 80s. Late Saturday afternoon an isolated storm is possible. Scattered showers and storms become more likely late Saturday night into Sunday and Monday.
Portions of central Indiana including Howard county north is under a “high” risk for severe weather. Damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes are the top threat for the “high” risk area.
The rest of Central Indiana is under a moderate risk of severe storms. Top concerns are damaging winds and flooding. An isolated tornado and large hail cannot be ruled out. Up to two inches of rain in a short amount of time is possible, that’s why flooding is a threat. Be weather aware as we head into tonight. The best timing for storms appears to be after 7pm until 4am. As the storms develop tonight, we’ll keep you updated on the timing.
