Light Rain For Now

August 29th, 2014 at 12:11 pm by under Weather

Light showers are found all around Marion County and downtown Indianapolis.  The showers and sprinkles are moving northeast.  A warm front is lifting north through the state and that will help to trigger thunderstorm development late this afternoon.  Expect lightning and heavy rain with these storms.

Right now our temperatures vary a lot due to the cloud cover over much of the state.  70s where it’s cloudy and in the 80s to the south where it’s sunny.  Temps will be warm (as long as we get some sunshine to break through the clouds) with highs in the upper 80s and humid.

Our holiday weekend will bring off and on rain and storm chances even through Labor Day.

Forecast 8 Futurecast shows that isolated showers and storms develop along a warm front that will lift north through Indiana this afternoon and evening.  Keep an eye on radar if you plan to be out at the pool.  Any storm that pops up could produce heavy rainfall and lightning.  We don’t expect severe storms.


Isolated storms and showers will still be  around this evening for any high school football games in The Zone.  Mainly dry though with warm temps.  Tonight, isolated showers and storms with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

Highs for the holiday weekend will be just as warm and it will be just as humid.  More rain and storms are also in the forecast.  Scattered showers and storms for Saturday.  The rain becomes more isolated on Sunday.  Labor Day we will also be dodging those showers and storms.  No widespread severe weather is expected this weekend.

The humidity won’t be as bad this afternoon.  Temperatures are a tad cooler as well with highs in the mid 80s for most.  An isolated pop up storm is possible late in the day but most of us will be dry.  Tonight will be partly cloudy with lows in the 60s.

The humidity and heat return in full force on Friday.  There is also a better chance for widespread showers and storms as our next low pressure system makes its way across the Great Lakes through the weekend.  This won’t break our pattern though.  More heat, humidity, and storms are in the forecast through the start to next week.

Temps are already in the upper 70s to the north and in the lower 80s everywhere else.  The humidity is making it feel rather sticky already.  Temps this afternoon get close to 90º with heat index values in the upper 90s.

The heat and humidity will help to trigger pop up storms and showers this afternoon and evening.  On Forecast 8 Storm Tracker we have a few light showers around Winchester and between Columbus and Seymour.  Keep an eye on radar later today.  Any storm that pops up could produce damaging wind, small hail, heavy rain and lightning.
