Sticky heat Tuesday with only isolated rain so far

Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS - It's a summer time setup over central Indiana that features warm, humid air and only isolated heavy showers and storms due to a lack of triggering mechanism. So many backyards don’t see a drop of rain today, but if you're under any one of the isolated cells that develop the rain could be torrential. Temperatures are approaching the warmest levels this year and Seymour is near 90 at 4 p.m.

Despite the lack of coverage, an isolated downpour of storm can't be ruled out at Victory Field this evening. The humidity is a bigger story in my opinion as the "Muggy Meter" is now in the humid-uncomfortable range with dew points in the 60s.

Any rain or storms that develop should quickly subside around/after midnight as the atmosphere stabilizes once the sun sets.

Think light clothing as you get the kids ready for the bus stop Wednesday morning, with muggy lows in the mid to upper 60s. There isn't a significant air mass change the next 24 hours, but a weaker upper atmosphere and frontal boundary provides a higher coverage in showers and storms Wednesday.

The threat for severe storms remains minimal tomorrow, but very heavy rain and lightning are likely in storms that develop.

The firing line for storms sinks south of I-70 Thursday and marks a transition to a dry pattern heading into the weekend. Friday into Sunday features mostly sunny/warm weather across the state with comfortable lows in the 50s and highs in the mid-80s.

Storm chances return early next week.
