Tracking Storms and Record HeatBy
We are tracking scattered storms on Live Doppler 13 Radar. Lots of lightning and heavy rain will be the biggest threats. A quick .50″-1″ of rain will be possible. Most of the storms are developing south of I-70 and will be scattered in nature and slow moving this evening. Rushville, Seymour and Columbus are a few of the hometowns impacted by the storms.
In terms of heat, it was a record breaking day, as highs topped the previous record of 95 in 1983. It stays warm and muggy, with lows tonight in the 70s as the storms wind down. Record heat is in the forecast for Wednesday too, with highs in the middle 90s. The record for Wednesday is 95 in 1897. A few more storms will be possible on Wednesday and Thursday, as a cold front moves our way. That cold front will dramatically change our weather pattern. Highs will drop to near 70 degrees by Friday.
