The atmosphere is still very juicy and unstable. So areas along and south of the Indy metro will see some heavy downpours, lightning, and maybe even some small hail. Also watch for the possibility of some minor flooding of roads.
FLOOD WARNINGS ISSUED: Marion County has a Flood Warning issued until 12:30 PM. Most of Monroe County, parts of Greene County and northern Lawrence County has Flood Warnings in place until 3:30pm

Current temps are in the upper 70s and lower 80s under a partly cloudy sky. Tonight’s lows dip into the lower 60s. After midnight we could see some patchy fog again, which may become dense and may reduce visibility to under a quarter of a mile through daybreak.
Monday will be similar to what we saw today, only with slightly warmer temps in the mid 80s and more humidity.
Tuesday looks dry with highs in the upper 80s, but with the humidity factored in our heat index temps will be in the lower 90s. Our next chance for rain is on Wednesday as cold front moves through Indiana. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible throughout the day. Temps will be in the mid 80s, but will really drop after that front passes through. Highs for Thursday and Friday will only be in the upper 70s.
Next weekend we could be dealing with some scattered rain for our Brickyard weekend. Stay tuned to forecast updates.

Temps today are in the low to mid 70s under a mainly cloudy sky. Tonight we keep the forecast dry as lows dip into the upper 50s and lower 60s. Some patchy fog may develop after midnight.
We continue our warming trend on Sunday as temps reach the mid 80s. Partly cloudy skies rule the forecast as we wrap up the weekend.
More warmth is on the way for Monday and Tuesday. We get close to 90º with high humidity. It’s pretty odd that we haven’t had a 90 degree day in Indy yet this summer. The only year Indy didn’t hit 90 in a year was in 2004. No 90s are in the 8-day forecast.

This morning we begin with cool temps in the 50s again with a mainly clear sky. Today’s forecast stays dry with a few more clouds and highs around 80º.
Tonight’s lows dip into the upper 50s for most with Indy reaching 60 degrees. Saturday’s highs reach the lower 80s. Sunday gets warmer with highs in the mid 80s. Our humidity increases this weekend and we have some rain chances.
Our next system is sitting to our south now. It will move northeast over the weekend, just skirting the eastern half of the state. We will see the clouds from the system more than the rain. A few showers are possible in eastern Indiana for Saturday and Sunday.
Dry and very warm weather will take over Monday and Tuesday as highs near 90º with high humidity. Rain chances return for the second half of next week.

Temps are starting off cooler in many spots compared to this time yesterday. Temps are in the 50s for most, but in the upper 40s in Kokomo. This afternoon we warm up into the mid to upper 70s with mostly sunny skies.
Tonight’s lows dip into the 50s again, but we won’t be quite as cold. Highs on Friday reach the upper 70s and lower 80s with partly cloudy skies.
The forecast models are having a hard time staying consistent with our next system. That system moves northeast, just southeast of Indiana. One model puts the rain over us, others keep the rain out completely, so we went with a forecast blend and added an isolated chance for showers both Saturday and Sunday. Stay tuned to updates as we get a better picture of what could happen. Temps warm up to around average (85º) by Sunday. We stay warm, humid, and active all next week.

Temps are in the 50s this morning under a mainly clear sky. Today’s highs will be in the lower 70s. Our record cold high temp for Indianapolis on this date is 71º set in 1917. We expect today’s high to reach 72º in Indy.
Clouds increase throughout the day due to the daytime heating. A few sprinkles may develop after noon too, but not expecting measurable rainfall.
Tonight’s lows get chilly again with some areas dipping into the upper 40s! Indy will hit 52º (record low is 51º set in 1976).
Thursday will bring us sunshine and warmer temps with highs reaching the mid to upper 70s.
The 80s finally return by Friday, but we stay below the average high of 85º. Saturday’s highs in the lower 80s. Sunday’s highs become more seasonable with a partly cloudy sky. Our next chance for rain will be on Monday. Our summer-like weather pattern returns all next week with warm temps, more humidity, and storm chances each day.

Overview: Today we have had some pop up showers and thunderstorms. Conditions remain favorable Monday for storms, yet again. After Monday however, we take a nice break from the thunderstorms and warm temperatures for awhile.
Tonight & Early Morning: This evening will have scattered showers and thunderstorms. As we lose our daytime heat overnight, we lose our thunderstorms. The remainder of the overnight hours after the thunderstorms have come and gone will prove to be mostly cloudy. Although, southern Indiana could see some isolated showers. Temperatures will drop into the upper 60s. As many are getting ready for work during daybreak, there is a chance for showers and thunderstorms.
Tomorrow: Monday will be similar to Sunday with pop up scattered showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening due to another cold front. High temperatures on Monday will reach the lower 80s with mostly cloudy skies. Monday’s weather will be seasonable in fashion, but the remainder of the week will not.
Rest of Week: After Monday, weather conditions take an unseasonal turn. Cold air is being brought down from the north giving Tuesday and Wednesday highs in the lower 70s. The rest of the week remains dry, partly cloudy, comfortable, and cooler. Temperatures slowly climb into the lower 80s by the weekend. Our 8 day forecast isn’t even showing rain and thunderstorms until NEXT Monday!

Temperatures are in the upper 70s and lower 80s with high humidity. Tonight we keep the forecast mainly dry, other than a stray shower. Lows dip into the lower 70s with a partly cloudy sky.
We have a slight risk for severe storms Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening. We have a couple rounds of storms according to Forecast 8 Futurecast. One round moves into northern Indiana around daybreak. This is what is left over from a complex of our storms to our west now. We don’t expect the storms to be severe by the time they move into Indiana. Additional pop up storms and showers are likely in the heat of the afternoon Sunday. These storms could produce damaging wind, large hail, localized flooding and a brief tornado.
Highs for Sunday will be in the mid to upper 80s with more humidity. Temps stay warm on Monday with a chance for severe storms in southern Indiana that day. A major cool-down takes over for next week starting on Tuesday. Highs will be in the lower 70s and lows will be in the lower 50s. Dry weather continues for much of next week too.
