Stifling heat holds; storm chances around through Friday


Gross heat and humidity remain intact across the state today, as another heat advisory takes effect. The advisory does include the city of Indianapolis. The combination of intense heat and sticky air will make a “feels-like” temperature between 98°-104°! Unhealthy no doubt and very unforgiving for working outdoors.

A line of severe storms made its way through Northern Indiana today primarily causing damage to trees with wind gusts reaching 60 mph. A few brief storms passed through the Indianapolis area as well through these were garden-variety in nature. The good news is that the threat has since passed and we should remain dry through the remainder of the afternoon and evening.

More of the same is in store for Thursday with additional intense heat. It will be a strong candidate for hottest day of the summer with a forecast high of 94 (93 is the temp to beat)! Storm chances will be lower, but still cannot be ruled out in the afternoon.

On Friday storm chances increase as a cold front moves through the state. The severe threat will remain low, but storm coverage will be more substantial along the front. Most of the rainfall should come during the day, though exact timing is tough to nail down at this moment. Regardless, this will result in a drop in humidity, cooler flow and a great weekend ahead! Enjoy…
