Dry start to the week but storms will be in the forecast soon
Sunday will continue with mostly clear conditions and more summer like temperatures. We’ve been in the mid to low 80s this afternoon and we’ll continue well into the evening hours still around or above the 80 degree mark.
Tonight, skies remain mostly clear and temperatures drop into the mid to low 60s. Winds will also remain light. This is thanks to a weak ridge of high pressure still over the Ohio Valley and it’s keeping the weather quiet for now.
Monday will be another mostly sunny and August-like day in central Indiana. Temperatures will climb into the mid 80s, getting us up to normal for the early part of the month. Humidity levels will only climb slightly on Monday so it still won’t feel oppressive outside, just a little sticky. Winds also shift back to the southwest on Monday at 2 to 5 mph and this will slowly help build some moisture. Some of the short term models even try to hint at some isolated showers after 2 PM on Monday due to the heat and humidity. With high pressure no longer anchored over the area, this cannot be ruled out but at this point, the forecast looks dry for the most part.
The weather turns a bit more unsettled by Tuesday evening and up until the start of the weekend. Each day will carry a chance for rain with better chances on Wednesday and Friday.
