Saturday we’ll be warmer and more humid with dew points climbing into the sticky category.  That humidity will stick around into next week.  Highs will top out in the mid 80s Saturday with a chance for isolated showers or storms in the afternoon/evening.

There will be plenty of dry time on Saturday, but as mentioned earlier, an isolated shower or storm is possible late in the day/evening.

Sunday highs will reach the mid 80s again, and if there’s a better chance for rain, it’s Sunday afternoon.  The day won’t be a washout, but you’ll need to check the radar if you have outdoor plans.

saturday sunday futuretrak13

So far Indy has only picked up 1.55″ of rain for the month of August, compare that to Valparaiso and Bloomington.

We dry out after this weekend but the humidity stays, and temperatures climb close to 90 degrees for next week.

Florida is bracing for Tropical Storm Erika.  This is the latest path.  Heavy rain leading to flooding and gusty winds are the biggest threat.

We have to keep an isolated shower or storm in the forecast on Sunday too.

Next week feels more like summer as humidity returns and highs top out near 90.

We also continue to monitor Tropical Storm Erika, but there remains high uncertainty on track and strength beyond 48 hours.  However, if you’re traveling to the southeastern U.S. we’re advising you to keep tabs on changes.

Pleasant conditions this evening with =a light breeze and mild temperatures in the 60s.  Areas of fog develop late tonight but quickly diminish by mid-morning with plenty of hazy sun around for the morning commute.  Did you notice the reddish tint being more prevalent in the sunset Thursday evening?  This is due to increased haze and remnant smoke from the Pacific Northwestern U.S. wildfires that have spread eastward into the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley.

SUNSET SMOKE LANDSAT NORTH LANDSAT GL

 

Due to a stagnant upper air pattern this will likely be a feature in the sky for several days and impact sunrises and sunsets.  It may also limit potential warming.

Lows in Indy drop into the upper 50s but lower 50s can be expected away for the city’s urban heat island.  Highs Friday climb into the lower 80s areas wide.  Should be a great night for week two of Operation Football and the beginning of Indy Greek Fest.

We’re still on track for warmer this weekend in the mid-80s.  As advertised since last Sunday… isolated rain chances remain the forecast.  But we want to stress probabilities are low you’ll get wet in any given place.  Confidence is higher on a noticeable increase in humidity however as the Muggy Meter gets uncomfortable.

MUGGY METER PLANNER SATURDAY RPM SATURDAY 4PM RPM SATURDAY 11PM RPM SUNDAY 2PM

Long range indicators continue to up the ante on summer heat next week with a prolonged stretch of warmer than normal air heading into Labor Day weekend.  Highs will be near or above 90 degrees and little rain chances at this point.

Below For Now But Nearing 90 Degrees Next Week

Posted By · August 26, 2015 at 5:04 pm

Low clouds hung tough again today, but despite limited sunshine at times temperatures warmed into the mid and upper 70s.  Expect low cloudiness to gradually ease toward sunset this evening and comfortable conditions into Thursday morning.

TEMPS PLANNER EVENING PLANNER TONIGHT LOWS TONIGHT

Low temperatures will be near seasonal levels and highs tomorrow approach 80 degrees area wide.  It’s looking like another stellar evening for week two of Operation Football.  We’re still expecting temperatures to warm heading into the weekend and a weak upper level disturbance continue to warrant the mention of isolated rain/storm chances Saturday and Sunday.

PLANNER TOMORROW HIGHS TOMORROW OPFB HIGHS FRIDAY RPM FRIDAY 4PM RPM SATURDAY 11AM HIGHS SATURDAY

The upper air pattern next week is conducive to a prolonged period of unseasonably warm and dry weather to begin September.  Highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s seem more and more likely given the modeled guidance with slim chances of rain.

JET STREAM 1

Afternoon model data has shifted the track of Tropical Storm Erika a bit to the east… but there remains considerable uncertainty this far out on track and intensity.  Though wind shear the next 48 hours will limit strengthening, conditions become favorable for intensification this weekend as Erika encounters very warm ocean water and less shear.  Definitely stay up to date if you have travel plans to Florida or the southeastern U.S.
