Soggy and Stormy At Times This AfternoonBy
Keep tabs on the radar the rest of today with flooding rain for some and the potential for localized damaging wind in stronger storms today.
Areas of heavy rain and strong to possibly severe storms will increase as a disturbance pivots across central Indiana. Tropical rain rates of 2-3″/hour are likely in heavier cells and total rainfall may exceed 1-2″ for some. It appears the eastern half of the state has the greatest chance of damaging wind due to more unstable air.
We’re sweating through another humid day with temperatures in the 70s at midday and lower 80s to finish. Dew points remain tropical, which makes it the “air you can wear” and helps feed the downpours.
The atmosphere settles down by 11pm this evening and sets the stage for a quite, but rather humid night. Areas of dense fog are possible Wednesday morning. Much of tomorrow will dry and warm. Highs Wednesday will be back in the mid to upper 80s, with only an isolated chance of a late day shower or storm.
The updated Skytrak13 seven day forecast shows a daily chance a shower or storm… but there will be more dry than wet hours and the focus shifts to hot air building into the weekend. Expect upper 80s and lower 90s Saturday and Sunday with heat indices in the upper 90s to near 100.
