Heat Streak Continues Into Weekend

By · August 30, 2013 at 1:38 pm

We’re in the midst of the longest stretch of 90 degree days in central Indiana this year.  Today will be the 5th straight, and we’ll tack a two more days this weekend.

Highs will be just shy of record levels in Indianapolis this afternoon, but well above the average of 84.

There’s a very slight shower/storm chance early this evening… but don’t cancel any Operation Football, Indianapolis Indians, US National plans… with only 20% probability.

A scattered line of storms, that fires up this evening near the Michiana border, will approach the area by 8-9am Saturday.  These storms may weaken as the move away from the best atmopsheric lift provided by the jet stream over the Great Lakes.

Scattered rain/storm “chances” continue this weekend, but it’s not a give any one backyard will get wet.  Temperatures remain unseasonably hot, and humidity stays oppressive.

The high moisture content puts “locally” heavy downpours in play, but as of now widespread heavy rain doesn’t appear likely.

If you’re not fan of the high heat/humidity… wait until Tuesday.  Canadian air returns to provide a pleasant stretch of weather for the middle of next week.  Have a great weekend and thanks for reading the blog – Sean Ash
