Summer warmth holds! Severe storms possible tonight for Indiana

Weather

Its been another warm and summer-like day with temperatures reaching the 80s for the 3rd day in a row. It has also been a windier one with a strong low pressure system spinning not far off to our west. We will have a close eye on this system as it provides enough energy for strong storms this evening.

Scattered storms have entered Western Indiana and will continue moving east this evening. A severe threat is in play with these storms as well. With the current warmth, higher than normal dew points, and instability should be enough to create some wind gusts up to 60 mph in a few locations. This could result in some wind damage and heavier downpours. An isolated tornado threat too, but mainly for the western half of the state. A severe thunderstorm watch could be issued for counties in our viewing area.

Tuesday will bring a change in the weather pattern, as cooler, drier and less humid air returns to the state. Expect more clouds in the morning, but a sunny sky should take over in the afternoon. Despite the passage of a cold front, temps should still return to the mid 70s!

More unsettled weather returns off and on from Wednesday evening through Saturday. A return to more seasonable weather is also in store as we transition into next weekend.
