90 Degree Heat Returns & Isolated Storm Chances

By · June 24, 2012 at 5:26 am

A big temperature swing is setting up to move into the Hoosier state.

Highs will reach the low 90s today with increasing clouds.  There’s a 10% chance for an isolated shower or storm this afternoon.  Saturday marked 19 days with no rain in Indianapolis.

Tonight, isolated storms are possible as a cold front moves through Indiana.  The best time to see the chance of activity will be from 5pm to 1am.  An isolated storm may be strong to severe with damaging wind, and large hail.  Not everyone will get rain, and it doesn’t look like widespread storms are likely at this point.  Temps will fall into the mid 60s tonight.

Monday we’ll get relief from the heat as highs top out in the upper 70s and low 80s.

A big warm up is coming our way, by Thursday the hottest air of 2012 could settle in.  Highs look to hit the mid 90s, with an isolated storm Friday, and a 30% chance of scattered storms Saturday and Sunday. 

So far Indy has picked up .05″ of rain this month.  The driest June on record was in 1988 when just .36″ of rain fell. 

We’re watching any chance of rain closely, but it looks like the majority of this week will be dry.

I was wondering why its been so dry this summer? Can you give me any insight on why we are having such a bad drought this summer? I’m afraid it is going to be to late for some of the crops that need rain so badly.

Thanks, Paul.
