INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --Good Sunday evening! Today marked the hottest day we've had in Indianapolis since June 12 when the city saw 92 degrees. Today's high temperature in Indy was 92 degrees with a heat index as high as 103 degrees. This is the highest the heat index has gotten all year in the city. This is also the fourth consecutive 90-degree day for Indianapolis.
Tonight, look for lows in the mid-70s with a chance of thunderstorms. The best chance of storms will be to our north after about 8 p.m. We'll watch for thunderstorms to push into central Indiana from the north tonight with a gradual weakening trend. Still, torrential downpours, lightning and gusty winds can be expected with any t-storms.
A cold front will move through the area on Monday and bring a chance of storms through the afternoon. It should not be as hot with highs in the upper 80s and heat indices in the mid to upper 90s. Patchy fog will be around in the morning.
The heat backs off a bit this week and so does the humidity with highs in the upper 80s on Tuesday and dew points in the mid-60s instead of low to mid-70s where they have been. Expect a slight chance of storms on Tuesday and then again Thursday and Friday. --Danielle Dozier
