With the fact that the storms in Illinois are holding together, indications are that these will hold together as they move east into warm, unstable air, we will see..
- heavy downpours
- lots of lightning
- small hail
- power outages possible
It looks like this will mainly impact areas along and south of I-70.
Make sure your cell phones and tablets are charged in case the power goes out. We will track these storms throughout the afternoon. Here is the latest version of Forecast 8 Futurecast by 4pm.

There is a large complex of thunderstorms approaching areas like Terre Haute and points south. The big question is, will they hold together? Most indications are that the storms will hold together as they move into SW Indiana, but we will have to monitor carefully.

The line of storms in eastern Missouri and western Illinois have accelerated a bit, and as a result, we may see some thunderstorms arrive anytime after 3pm in western Indiana, between 5-7 in central Indiana, then 6-8 in eastern Indiana. Damaging wind and large hail still the biggest threats…if they hold together

FOG, HERE WE GO AGAIN: Areas of fog are developing again across central Indiana. Hopefully it will not cause delays for the kids at the bus stop, or for you on the way to work. It will be warm and humid again.
REST OF TODAY: Unsettled weather will return today, especially in the afternoon and evening. The biggest threats are damaging wind, and large hail. Highs will reach the mid 80s, with a lot of humidity.
THIS EVENING: After the evening storms move out, we will see quieter weather, but it will still be muggy.
8-DAY FORECAST: More heat, humidity and needed rain chances will last through the week. We may squeeze out a dry day Wednesday, and now the weekend looks dry again, which is good news for the Colts 5k run and the Colts preseason game.

THIS EVENING: Expect to see a few pockets of showers, but many places will be dry, but humid, with temps in the 70s all evening.
OVERNIGHT: Areas of fog will develop overnight. Hopefully not enough for delays Monday morning, but it could be a bit soupy in spots. Lows will drop into the mid to upper 60s once again.
MONDAY: More of the same weather pattern. It will be a touch warmer, with the humidity lingering again. There will be some pop-up showers and some thunderstorms, a few could have some heavy downpours, but it should not be an all day rain event. Highs will reach the low to mid 80s with high humidity.
8-DAY FORECAST: Daily thunderstorm chances will continue through the end of the workweek. Temps will continue to build into the mid to upper 80s through the week, with plenty of humidity. For now, we have removed chances of rain for the Sunday forecast, but that could change, so stay tuned. There are some signs that point to some cooler air returning the following week.

OVERNIGHT: There will be more pockets of rain overnight, with temps in the 60s for overnight lows.
SUNDAY: The weather pattern that brought us the rain chances today will linger Sunday, so keep the umbrella with you if you are headed to the State Fair or elsewhere. Highs should be a bit warmer, and make it into the lower 80s with plenty of humidity.
8-DAY FORECAST: Unsettled and warmer weather will build in for the week ahead. Highs will get into the upper 80s, and there is a chance that we may see our 1st 90° day of the year Thursday. We will keep the forecast high of 89 for now. Warmer weather will last through next weekend. The umbrella will be a good friend, as rain chances will be around each day through next Saturday.
