Coolest Night In Three Weeks

A stiff northwesterly wind is doing its job and dropping the Muggy Meter significantly over the past 24 hours... with dewpoints 20-30° colder than Sunday evening.

The Muggy Meter remains comfortable much of this week which means you can give the A/C a break and let nature cool your house.

The combination of a clear sky, calming wind later tonight, and that much drier air... leads to the coolest lows since May 21st.

We're expecting most areas to wake to lows in the upper 40s to near 50. A light jacket may be needed early Tuesday but the warm up tomorrow should be rather quick for full June sun. Afternoon highs near 80 and it's a candidate for pick-of-the-week.

Clouds quickly return Wednesday but likely have more bark than bite until toward sunset. A low pressure system is modeled to intensify near Central Indiana bringing an increase in rain and possibly thunderstorms Wednesday night into Thursday.

Thursday will be rather cool for mid-June and "high" temperatures may not climb out of the 50s in some areas. In fact our forecast "high" of 64 in Indy is closer to the average low (61) for this time of year and may be too "warm."

Wind-whipped showers are likely with clouds hanging tough much of the day.

Clouds clear Thursday night and temperatures again nose-dive into the 40s Friday morning. Friday looks fantastic if you're a fan of sunshine and highs near 70. It's also a perfect weather script for those attending Zoobilation Friday evening at the Indianapolis Zoo... an event that sometimes features a rather uncomfortable Muggy Meter. That doesn't look to be the case this year.

We're back to an unsettled set up over Father's Day weekend with scattered showers and storms - Sean Ash
