Hot, dry pattern - Live Doppler 13 Blog

Lindsey Monroe

We are settled into a dry pattern as an upper level ridge settles into the eastern US.

That means lots of sunshine for today with slightly above average temperatures.

A high forecast of 84 today is 7° above average yet will be the "coolest" of the week.

With a clear sky overnight and a relatively dry air mass situated through Indiana, the warmth with quickly be released back into the atmosphere allowing for cooler overnight temps. Many spots start Wednesday off in the 50s.

Wednesday will be another mainly sunny and warm day.

One thing that we won't be dealing with is a high humidity as the dry air remains in place. Keep in mind though, dry air tends to heat quicker than moist air so temperatures will quickly recover to the mid 80s.

High temps Wednesday will range from the low to upper 80s through the state.

The humidity will slowly move back in starting on Thursday and it will become slightly more muggy through the end of the week.

Temperatures will also increase starting on Thursday with high temps nearing the 90 degree mark through Saturday.

Our next weather system arrives on Sunday and will bring the next best chance of showers and storms which will hinder our high temps to the lower 80s.

That rain chance Sunday could force the roof to be closed for the Colts home opener against the Falcons.

Tailgate town looks to be mainly dry for now though -- temperatures in the lower 80s in the afternoon.
