INDIANAPOLIS — A cold front moving in today will bring brief relief from the heat and humidity.
Yesterday marked the seventh day in a row of 90+ degree temperatures and the tenth 90+ degree day for 2020.
A line of showers and thunderstorms are moving through this morning. They are weakening as they push east-southeast, as instability decreases. Heavy downpours, gusty winds and lightning will be possible with these storms. This line of storms will eventually clear the state by late morning. A few more lingering showers will be possible behind the front. Rain will taper off from west to east this afternoon with temperatures near normal this year, in the mid-80s.
Skies will clear out tonight. Temperatures will fall into the low 70s.
Saturday will be sunny, warm and less humid. Highs will be back into the upper 80s.
Scattered thunderstorms will be possible late Saturday night into Sunday morning. Lows will be in the upper 60s.
A few isolated storms will be possible Sunday with afternoon highs in the mid 80s.
A ridge in the upper levels will start to expand over the Midwest early next week. That means hot air will push back in with afternoon highs back into the 90s. The hottest temperatures of the year could be recorded next week. Humidity will also be on the rise by mid-week.
