Spotty showers and storms continue through this evening in a very unsettled atmosphere. As of 3 PM, temperatures had only climbed into the low 80s for our highs so far due to the occasional rounds of showers and storms. But it has proven to be a very muggy day in central Indiana.
The overnight hours will be partly cloudy and uncomfortably muggy. Temperatures should drop to 71° with a wind coming in from the south at 5 to 10 mph.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will return again on Sunday and this may keep our temperatures from hitting 90. Monday will also be another hot and humid day with PM chances for showers and storms. If early afternoon storms develop as the models are hinting at on Monday, this could again thwart our chance to hit 90°.
We are also under a slight risk of severe storm on Monday, this most specifically points at Monday night for our area but we’ll have to watch those early afternoon storms as well. Large hail and damaging winds would be the primary threat.
We could see some shower activity Tuesday morning but the rest of the day should be dry and rather warm with temperatures in the mid to upper 80s.
Another weak wave passes through the state on Wednesday once again bringing a chance for rain but this should mainly be in the afternoon and evening hours. Later that night, dew points will take a rather large dip and this will be the beginning of a less humid stretch for us. We are finally going to see back to back days with dew points below those sticky levels we’ve been stuck in for weeks. Temperatures on Thursday will come in around 78° with low humidity. Friday, July 4th, will also be a day that isn’t sticky and temperatures climb to the low 80s. This is setting us up for rain free 4th of July!
