Warm temperatures and low dew points graced central Indiana for the start of the weekend with plenty of sunshine.  We’ll stick with clear skies tonight and temperatures dropping to comfortable levels again in the low 60s.

SUNDAY:

Sunday starts mostly sunny and mild but heat, humidity and clouds will build for the afternoon hours.  A good portion of central Indiana will see a completely dry Sunday forecast, especially from Indianapolis and to the east.  But in southwest Indiana, some isolated showers and thunderstorms will pop up with daytime heating tomorrow.  This brings a chance for storms to places like Terre Haute, Bloomington, Greencastle, Seymour and yes, even Indianapolis.  Just keep in mind, it’s not a guarantee, only a 20% chance.  Rainfall chances will start after 2 PM and continue through sunset.

MONDAY:

Scattered showers and storms return Monday area wide here in central Indiana.  Temperatures will increase into the low 80s and humidity levels will spike as dew points jump into the upper 60s.  This means that it will feel very muggy on Monday.  The storms that develop on Monday afternoon will have a decent amount of energy to tap into so some stronger storms cannot be ruled out locally.  That being said, there isn’t “slight risk” area from the Storm Prediction Center.  But seeing a few storms that produce some gusty winds cannot be ruled out.  We’ll see a better chance for storms and potentially severe weather on Wednesday afternoon.
