Our Stormy Pattern Continues

Indianapolis is dry for now as we are wedged between two areas of rain.  One area of rain to the south and one area of storms to the northwest.  The rain and storms are moving northeast so we keep the evening dry other than a stray shower and some sprinkles.  Tonight there is a better chance for rain and storms into daybreak Sunday.  Sunday will bring off and on showers and storms, but we will have plenty of dry periods so don’t cancel plans.

Temperatures are in the upper 70s and lower 80s with heat index values in the low to mid 80s.  Tonight we stay muggy with lows around 70º.  Sunday and Monday our high temps will be in the mid 80s and still humid.
