Brief Break From the Heat Coming

By · July 24, 2011 at 6:36 am

The excessive heat warning that’s been with Central Indiana for the week, expires tonight at 8pm!

Highs today will reach the low 90s with a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms, especially this afternoon and tonight.  Temps will feel up to 110, with the humidity sticking around through the evening.  Severe storms are not expected, but any thunderstorm that pops could contain very heavy rain and gusty winds along with frequent lightning.

Overnight, scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible, as lows drop to the mid 70s.

Monday, a few raindrops may stick around for the morning, then, the skies will gradually clear.  Highs Monday will hit the upper 80s.  It’s a brief break from the heat!

Tuesday, the upper 80s are with us… but by Wednesday we’re already back in the 90s. 

The next best chance for rain moves in Friday and Saturday.

So far, the Indianapolis International Airport (the official rain gauge for Indy) has only picked up .11″ of rain this month.  The driest July on record occurred in 1914 when we only received .49″ of rain.

Sure glad some of you got rain. I’m in the Broad Ripple area and not a single drop fell here. Sure hope some does soon. Lawn is totally brown and tomatoes are wilted.

We happily received rain yesterday in this part of Lawrence. It had been a few weeks without any rain, and it was especially tough on my garden which is far from a water line so I have to haul water in. The rain came down like honey from heaven. My flowers and vegetables are most joyful now.
