Welcome to one of the drier afternoons central Indiana will experience over the next seven days. It's still humid, but not nearly as oppressive as it's been the past several days. Highs in central and northern Indiana will only top out in the lower to mid 80s. But areas south of a warm front in southwestern Indiana will near 90 with heat indices near 100.

Low temperatures tonight from 65 to near 70 with haze and areas of fog developing by sunrise Friday. There will be plenty of dry time tomorrow and take advantage before weekend downpours return.

The aforementioned front moves northward Friday and bring a return of tropical humidity and afternoon/evening storm chances. Highs tomorrow near 90 area wide and you'll need to monitor Live Doppler 13 Radar if you'll be outside for the Indianapolis Indians, Operation Football or the NHRA U.S. Nationals. Not every backyard gets wet Friday, but definitely a few storms to dodge.

Rain and storm chances ramp up this weekend... specifically Saturday afternoon into the first half of Sunday. A slow moving teams up with daytime heating and a "juicy" atmosphere to deliver areas of heavy rain. Some locations may see 1 to 3 inches of rain by Sunday night.

This front stalls across the Ohio Valley early next week, and helps trigger multiple rounds of heavy storms Labor Day into Wednesday afternoon. Have a great evening - Sean Ash
