MORE JULY RAIN
For the 5th day of this young July we have rainfall. Locally heavy rain fell this morning, Nearly an inch and half of rain was reported in Terre Haute. .51" fell officially in Indianapolis. The total for the month has reached 1.38" and that's .45" above normal.
QUIET BUT FOGGY
Overnight looks quieter and a little foggy as well. We are expecting new storms on Thursday evening and overnight into Friday. The threat of severe storms will return then.
HEAT INDEX NEAR 100° THURSDAY
We are expecting extended hours of rain free time Thursday and as we heat up the combination of temperature and humidity will push the heat index to nearly 100° Thursday afternoon!
NEW SEVERE WEATHER THREAT
A strong/severe cluster of storms is expected to sweep the state again late Thursday night into Friday morning. It's another one of these noisy batches of storms that will bring damaging winds gusts, frequent lightning and very heavy rainfall.
In anticipation of the storms the SPC (Storm Prediction Center) has included a large portion Indiana in a 'slight risk' Thursday night into Friday morning.
I'm posting the early afternoon and late evening RPM model forecast radar. A quicker arrival is presented by out later computer run and may be not one but two rounds. For now the forecast is still for the storm threat to increase later Thursday and through the overnight hours into Friday morning. Be sure to check back for updated storm timing on Fox 59. After storms depart Friday morning we will be headed into the weekend with lowered humidity and milder air.
