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.

Some sprinkles are surrounding Indianapolis now. The storms are to the west of us in central Illinois and will continue to push to the north. Later today scattered showers and storms will develop over central Indiana between 3pm and 5pm. Storm chances stick around all evening.

This morning we are waking up to temps in the upper 60s and lower 70s. The heat is on later today. High temps reach the upper 80s and lower 90s with higher humidity. There is of course a chance for rain too.
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.

While temperatures remained very summer-like on Thursday, it was a welcome break from the above-average heat and humidity we’ve experienced this entire week.
Partly cloudy skies will continue with mild overnight temperatures. Low near 68.
Warm temperatures return with highs in the upper 80s. A scattered shower or a thunderstorm is possible Friday afternoon as temperatures warm up. Overnight lows will drop to near 70 degrees.
More scattered showers and storms are expected on Saturday afternoon, with high temperatures into the mid to upper 80s. Lows in the low 70s.
Another day of temperatures in the mid 80s, with plenty of humidity. Our stormy pattern will continue with scattered storms likely during the afternoon. Lows in the low 70s.
It will be hot and humid for Labor Day, and since the pattern is not expected to change through the holiday, you can expect a chance for showers and storms, mainly during the afternoon and evening. High 88. Low 70.
Temperatures will stay between 85 and 90 for the entire week, but storm chances should diminish by the second half of the week.

Temperatures this afternoon have stayed slightly cooler than the last few days, with most locations in the low to mid 80s.
Plenty of sunshine has been in place most of the day, and any storms are popping well south of the viewing area. Though an isolated shower or storm is possible this afternoon and evening, the chance remains small.
Overnight lows will drop into the mid to upper 60s again tonight.

Temperatures are comfortable in many places thanks to some cloud cover. Indianapolis is 75º with partly sunny skies. Southern cities have had full sunshine and temps are warmer in the lower 80s. Highs today will be in the mid 80s. An isolated pop up shower or storm is possible but most of us stay dry.

The Colts travel to Cincinnati to play the Bengals. Temperatures will be in the 70s all evening and we took the chance for rain out. It will be a perfect game day if you are traveling to the game! If not, catch all the action on MyINDY-TV 23 at 7pm. Go Colts!

Temperatures are in the upper 60s and lower 70s this morning with dry conditions in central Indiana. A few showers have developed in eastern Illinois and those showers are trying to hold together as they move to the east.
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.

THIS EVENING: Temps will stay warm, with some spotty thunderstorms. Do not cancel any plans, but keep the umbrella handy.
OVERNIGHT: It will not be as warm or humid as the past several nights, but it will still be warm, with lows in the mid 60s.
THURSDAY: Temps will be a few degrees cooler Thursday, but there will still be humidity to go along with it. Highs will reach the mid 80s.
8-DAY FORECAST: There will not be too much change to the weather pattern over the next 8 days. Temps will stay in the mid to upper 80s, with chances of rain and thunderstorms. Nothing to cancel plans for, but enough to check radar before heading out.

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.
