Heat And Humidity Continue


Our hot and humid weather pattern continues today with highs back in the lower 90s and a heat index of 95-100. The excess moisture and energy in the atmosphere will contribute to pop-up storms in the afternoon, mainly from 4-7pm.

Warm and muggy overnight with lows in the lower 70s under a mostly clear sky.

Much of the same on Wednesday with highs in the lower 90s -- a heat index 95-100 with afternoon pop-up storms. We'll finally shake things up as a cold front arrives on Thursday.

Scattered storms move into the northern part of the state Thursday morning and gradually move southward through the day. It'll still be warm and muggy ahead of the front with highs in the mid to upper 80s. Scattered storms will be most likely in the afternoon and evening.

Right now Friday will have lots of dry time with only a scattered storm possible. More widespread rain moves back in for the weekend as the remnants of what is currently Tropical Storm Gordon arrive in Central Indiana.

The timing and amount of rain we receive depends on the track of Gordon. It is forecast to move toward Mississippi and Louisiana late tonight into early Wednesday. It is then set to weaken as it lifts north through the Mississippi Valley and eventually into the lower Midwest by the weekend. There are many variable at play here -- make sure to check back for the latest rainfall projections. - Lindsey Monroe
