Humid Holiday Before Relief Arrives

After a stormy Saturday, cloud cover and cooler temperatures served to limit rain coverage over central Indiana today.


The hottest day of the year was followed up by temperatures a good 10-15 degrees cooler than Saturday.


Most backyards this evening will stay.  Expect warm, humid conditions and a 10-20% rain/storm chance.

Plenty of haze and areas of fog Monday morning, and holiday highs will max out in the mid 80s.


Don’t be fooled…the Muggy Meter Monday remains in the muggy to oppressive range.


Less Humid air arrives Monday evening and sets the stage for a pleasant stretch for mid-week.


Lows Tuesday morning will be in the 50s and underneath a blanket of sun highs likely stay below 80 degrees Tuesday.

We’ll be on the cool side of the jet stream Tuesday and Wednesday, as the hot dome recedes back west.

But all signs point toward another impressive warm up next weekend… as highs soar back into the 90s.


Hopefully your backyard picked up some rain Saturday, because we’re staring down another prolonged dry spell in central Indiana.  Despite several cool spells during climatological summer (June-August)… the average summer temperature for Indianapolis was just below normal.  However, when compared to the past three summers… it’s significantly cooler.
