Sunday showers and return of hot air this week
Overcast continues to blanket central Indiana this afternoon with temperatures struggling to hit 80 degrees. While rain has been steady around Bedford and Seymour, new spotty showers have started developing in daytime heating farther north along the I-70/74 corridors.
This Afternoon: Not every backyard gets wet, but some areas will see heavy downpours. This is due to high atmospheric moisture content and expected slow movement. Remember to check Live Doppler 13 Radar for updates and you can do this at WTHR.com or on the SkyTrak 13 weather app from you phone.
Overnight: Showers diminish after sunset and then the focus shifts to areas of dense fog. Visibility may be low enough in spots Monday morning to slow travel and possibly cause school delays. Check in with Chuck Lofton beginning at 4am for the latest.
Tomorrow: Monday will be mostly dry until late day when isolated showers and storms flare up in the humid air. Highs tomorrow creep into the 80s. Locally heavy rain remains in play tomorrow and the rest of the week with humid air lingering.
Medium to long rang guidance suggest an active set up in this week. There is potential for multiple storm complexes to pass through central Indiana on the edge of an expanding hot dome. Timing is highly uncertain at the moment so check back for updates. But confidence is growing on our warmest stretch of the summer.
There is also a chance of Indianapolis finally hitting 90 degrees for the first time this season. It's been 341 days and counting since the city officially hit that mark… the 6th longest streak on record.
This heat streak likely carries into next weekend before a strong front delivers strong storms and ushers in somewhat cooler air.
Have a great afternoon – Sean Ash
