Areas of steady, light rain are FINALLY here as remnants of Barry are now passing through the Midwest and Ohio Valley! Expect showers and storms at times today and through Wednesday. We’re just seeing light rain this morning, but scattered storms will be likely through the afternoon as more heat is added to the mix along with greater lift. In the terms of severe weather, a few storms could produce strong gusts, heavy pockets of rain and dangerous lightning. Due to the angle of low and that Indiana sits on the northeastern quadrant of the low, some storms will likely rotate, meaning a few tornadoes will be possible, although of the weaker variety. Be sure to stay weather aware today!

Additional rain chances will continue tonight and through Wednesday afternoon as “Barry” makes its way to the northeast. Warm, humid air will continue, as well, while highs reach the middle 80s.

The forecasted hot dome begins to move in on Thursday and build through Sunday morning! This heat will the worst in 7 years when the heat index is added. Again, this is a dangerous situation if the heat is taken for granted. Be sure to hydrate often, watch your younger children, the elderly and your pets. A cold front will pass through by Sunday night, prompting stronger storms and a cool down to start a new week!
