Scattered storms continue this evening south of I-70
Scattered storms continue late this evening but much of this rain activity will be coming to a close the closer we get to midnight. The Storm Prediction Center continues a “slight risk” for severe weather in southern Indiana into the overnight hours. You can see that risk area below.
We’ll only see a small chance for rain overnight hours for much of the viewing area. But some more spotty storms cannot be ruled out in our very southern counties. Waves of storms will continue to move east from Illinois and keep in the possibility for spotty storms into early Sunday morning for this part of the state. For many of us, Monday morning will be rain free but very muggy outside. But once again in the heat and humidity of the afternoon hours, scattered storms will develop across our state again. This is going to be an area-wide chance for rainfall starting after 1-2 PM and continue into the evening hours. It’s on Monday evening that the cold front will finally pass through our state and behind it will be an airmass that is total out of character for this time of year.
We will see temperatures in the mid to low 70s on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Even overnight temperatures will dip into the mid to low 50s for a few nights. To say the least, this is not “normal” for mid July. These conditions are more like late September! Dew points will also drop drastically starting Tuesday and continuing through Friday. This means that the muggy conditions will be gone and more refreshing and dry air will take its place.
