Summer-Like Warmth Slowly Eases Later This Week

For the first time in nearly seven months Indianapolis had back-to-back 80 degree days.  Even a few cirrus clouds this afternoon couldn’t slow the warming on the new warmest day of the year.

TEMPS

As of 4pm daytime highs were a good 15 degrees above normal and more representative of mid-June than mid-April.  It’s definitely going to feel like the summer for the Boys Of Summer at Victory Field this evening.

The Indianapolis Indians welcome the Toldeo Mudhens for the next three days.  Please note the early start times tomorrow and Wednesday.

INDIANS INDIANS 3 DAY JET STREAM

While we’re reaping the sunny, warm rewards of an upper high and its sinking air… the moist flow between the high and cut-off low over the Rockies delivered historic flooding to the Houston area.

RADAR ESTIMATES

Many areas had over 10″ of rainfall in a 12 hour period overnight and the flooding has reached areas that typically don’t flood.  Flash Flood Emergencies continue at this hour and more rain is likely.

Yesterday, we topped out at 80 degrees and we will get there again today tying yesterday as the warmest day of the year so far. We will see June like weather the next few days. humidity levels remain low which means the air will be comfortable. Though Tuesday won’t be bright, it will still be warm and temperatures will still climb into the 70s.

The ridge of high pressure that has given us the sunny, warm weather finally breaks down mid-week and an upper level low brings unsettled conditions. By Wednesday, late in the day, scattered showers develop with higher rain chances Thursday.

Look for highs to bounce back into the 70s over the weekend.
