Storms this evening, but great weather ahead for the 4th!July 1st, 2014 at 7:44 pm by Robb Ellis under Weather
A very pleasant weather pattern is heading our way just in time for the 4th of July weekend. Following a chance for rain showers and isolated storms on Wednesday, cooler and less humid conditions come to the Hoosier state late this week, bringing with them clear skies through Saturday.
Scattered storms are possible this evening, most of these will be south of the city and associated with a line of storms that is currently moving through the state. Some of these storms may be strong, with damaging winds and some hail as the primary threats.
Tomorrow is our last chance for rain before the 4th of July weekend. Expect some scattered showers to be around, especially in the evening, along with the chance for an isolated thunderstorm. Highs should be near 80 in the afternoon.
We are finally done with the rain chances on Thursday as very pleasant conditions move into Indiana. Expect mostly sunny skies and a cool high of 78.
Arguably one of the best 4th of July forecasts in years, this will not be a day that you want to waste. Mostly sunny skies, light winds, and low humidity will combine with a high of 80 to create the perfect 4th forecast. Perfect weather for taking in fireworks or any other outdoor activities for sure!
Saturday & Sunday:
Nice weather continues on Saturday with partly cloudy skies and a high of 82, however storms re-enter the forecast for Sunday. Expect scattered storms throughout the day on Sunday as we start to warm back up with a high topping out at 85.
Early Next Week:
Scattered storms will continue into next week as temperatures warm to 86 Monday and 87 on Tuesday. The extended outlook shows rain coming to an end for Wednesday, though we will keep an eye on the system as we get closer to next week.
