The heat and humidity return to central Indiana today as a dome of high pressure across the southeastern U.S. builds in.

This will bring temperatures that top out 10-15° above average through much of the week.

Factoring in the increased moisture into the air -- it'll feel more like that mid to upper 90s with the heat index this afternoon.

Hazy, hot, humid conditions continue through the week. There is a slight chance of stray pop-up storms on Wednesday as a humid air mass settles in and a boundary sets up to the north.

Highs on Wednesday top out in the upper 80s/lower 90s with heat indices again in the mid to upper 90s.

The tropical air mass continues into Friday before a cold front arrives later in the day. High temps will still be in the upper 80s.

A few thunderstorms are possible along this front Friday afternoon and evening -- be aware for Friday evening Operation Football or any outdoor plans.

Next weekend looks more pleasant with highs back in the low to mid 80s with mainly clear skies.
