As expected it’s been a quiet afternoon thus far for central Indiana… just hot and humid with temperatures in the 80s and heat indices in the 90s. We will monitor storms in southern Illinois for upstream impact in southern Indiana where damaging wind is possible for cities like Bedford, Seymour and North Vernon that are under a Slight Risk for severe storms.
There is Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 11pm for the Evansville area, and it’s conceivable this watch is pushed farther east as storms grow. The greatest wind potential will be along the Ohio River but can’t ruled out for the cities I mentioned above. After this evening we get ready for refreshing air but patience is still required.
While severe storms stay well south of Indy, I can’t rule out some of the rain debris sneaking up to the I-70 corridor. Rain and storm chances quickly diminish after dark when the disturbance passes to the east.
Lows tonight stay muggy in the upper 60s but you’ll feel the difference tomorrow when highs stay in the 70s! Cool air aloft and even modest daytime heating will allow isolated afternoon showers to develop…but many stay dry Wednesday.
Patience will be rewarded tomorrow as dew points finally drop below the line of discomfort which is the 65 degree dew point mark.
Even cooler air hits Thursday morning when lows dip in the 50s! You’ll be able to open the windows and turn off the A/Cs for a few days. This is perfect timing for the 4th of July which still looks picture perfect. Sunny and 70s Friday with a repeat performance Saturday.
Heat builds Sunday into the early next week.
