Stormy Saturday; steamy Sunday

The heat will start to build in this weekend and sets us up for a stretch of above average temperatures with more humid dew points. Highs will be near 90 through the weekend and into early next week with spotty storms possible as multiple weak system move through.

Scattered thunderstorms continue to weaken as they push east through the state. We have lots of outdoor events going on this afternoon/evening from the State Fair to the Colts tailgate, so plan ahead with rain gear or make a "Plan B".

We'll get some dry time after the initial cluster of storms passes as temperatures recover to the mid 80s. A few more pop-up showers will be possible in the later evening hours. We stay warm and muggy overnight with a stray shower chance and lows in the lower 70s.

You'll notice the heat taking over on Sunday -- highs back in the lower 90s with a heat index climbing from 95-100. There will be lots of dry time Sunday but a weak atmospheric wave could prompt late afternoon/evening showers and storms. Rain chance 30%.

Highs continue in the lower 90s with a 95-100° heat index Monday and Tuesday with spotty storms possible both days.

We find relief from this humid outbreak with a passing cold front on Wednesday. Expect it to still be muggy with highs in the mid 80s as showers and storms develop along the front.

Thursday and Friday will be the picks of the week with sunshine, low humidity and highs back near 80. - Lindsey Monroe
