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
THE LATEST: The Storm Prediction Center has expanded the area that could see severe thunderstorms later today and this evening. More of the Midwest is under the Slight Risk area of severe thunderstorms. There is not much change here in Indiana.
THREATS: The largest threats will be Damaging Wind and Large Hail.
TIMING: It looks like the biggest threat for severe weather will begin around 5pm and last until about 10pm tonight from West to East. Latest estimates have severe storms in the Indy Metro area between 7 and 8 pm.
STAY WITH FORECAST 8: We will have updates on-air and on-line as events develop during the day and into the evening hours!
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.
A more summer-like pattern emerges this week with warmer temperatures and higher humidity translating into storm chances for most of the week.
Partly cloudy skies will continue along with muggy conditions. While a rain shower is still possible, especially in southern Indiana, rain chances remain small.
Tuesday:Most of the day will be warmer and humid, with a mix of sun and clouds. An upper level impulse will slide through late in the afternoon and bring a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms. While the Storm Prediction Center keeps a Slight Risk of severe weather over the southern half of the state on Tuesday, that chance remains marginal. However, conditions will have to be monitored through the afternoon and evening as storms develop.
Isolated thunderstorms are possible as high temperatures return to the upper 80s. Lows near 70.
Thursday and Friday:
More scattered showers and storms with highs in the upper 80s and lows near 70.
High temperatures are forecast to be near or just above 90 degrees this weekend with isolated storm chances on Saturday. If we make it to 90 degrees it would be the first time this year temps at IND have made it to 90.
Rain chances return on Monday with highs staying near 90.
Areas of dense fog this morning will burn off before noon leaving a partly sunny sky. It will be a warm and humid day with highs in the middle 80s. A spotty shower or thundershower will be possible this afternoon.
Watch out for dense fog this morning especially over the western half of the state. The fog should burn off between 9 and 10am. It will be a warm and humid day with highs in the middle 80s. A few spotty afternoon thundershowers will be possible.
A weak cold front will bring a better chance for scattered storms on Tuesday. Highs tomorrow will once again be in the middle 80s.
Summer heat will try to build in later this week. We could see our first 90 by the weekend. It will also remain quite humid too.
With lots of moisture around, and light wind, we could see some areas of fog overnight. Hopefully not enough to cause any delays for the bus stop. Randy Ollis will have the latest on the fog and what it may mean for the bus stop and morning commute on Daybreak beginning at 4am.
