Humid Heat Next Several Days

By · May 18, 2013 at 6:25 pm

Hazy sun, sticky highs in the 80s and slim rain chances highlight the 48 hour forecast.  Isolated showers this evening will quickly diminish as the sun sets.  As mid-level clouds and wind fade after dark, areas of locally dense fog will develop early Sunday morning.

Areas of morning fog/low cloud overcast will give way to hazy sunshine Sunday, and temperatures respond rapidly to the brighter finish.

Definitely pack the sunscreen and shades if you’re heading out to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for Bump Day…with just a very slim chance of shower or storm late day.EVENT

Highs Sunday will be a good 10 degrees above normal, and likely even warmer Monday… nearing 90 degrees in most backyards!highssunday highsmonday

The atmosphere Monday will be mostly “capped” and the main lifting mechanism will be well to our west along the Mississippi River.  This results in very slim rain chances, and likely the warmest day of the year so far.  RPM_4

The same system producing a multi-day severe weather event in the Plains, will bring widespread rain/heavy storms into Central Indiana Tuesday-Thursday.  There are signs that pleasantly dry air (dewpoints in the 40s) returns later next week… “possibly” setting us up for ideal conditions next weekend for the 500 Festival Parade and Indianapolis 500.  Much will change in modeling between now and then, so check back for updates.
