Storm chances rise in coverage today; tropical heat continues

Weather

It’s another muggy one out there across the Hoosier State with temperatures rising through the 70’s. We’ve seen clouds dominate through the early afternoon in association with a complex of showers primarily to our south. The rain has since moved out of the area however, and we are setup for clearing and warming as a result. While it will not be quite as warm as this past weekend, temperatures still have a good chance to reach the mid 80’s as we heat up quickly under the August sun.

This evening will start off quiet with our sky remaining relatively clear through dusk. It will remain muggy and temperatures should hang on around 80 for a little while as a result. Storms will become more likely later in the night as a wave of energy progresses southeast from Northern Illinois. This presents a slight chance for severe weather for parts of Northwest Indiana with general thunderstorms making their way into the Circle City by the early AM.

Tuesday through Thursday will bring a wave of true summer-like weather as heat builds, along with oppressive dew points. The incredibly juicy air could push our heat indices into the 100° (feels-like) range! This will fuel the potential for severe storms late tomorrow evening, though exact timing and strength remain uncertain at this time.

Friday will bring a cold front, storm chances and a change in our air mass for the weekend! Slightly cooler, drier air on tap for both Saturday and Sunday.
