INDIANAPOLIS — Temperatures will recover to the low to mid 80s this afternoon with scattered thunderstorms becoming more widespread after lunchtime and continuing through much of the afternoon.
A few storms could be on the stronger side in southern Indiana but widespread severe weather is not expected. Remember lightning is a threat within any thunderstorm.
Showers become fewer and far between this evening with mainly cloudy skies overnight. Lows drop into the upper 60s.
We're headed into a somewhat unsettled weather pattern early next week. It'll be a dry start to the day Monday with storms popping up in the afternoon. Temperatures will still top out in the upper 80s. Storms become widespread Monday overnight into Tuesday morning along a passing cold front.
A few showers linger through early Tuesday morning with drier air returning in the late afternoon. The next dry day doesn't look to be until Wednesday.
Much-needed rain returns
Skies will be hazy today with temperatures climbing into the upper 80s.
A pop-up storm is possible.
It will be unseasonably mild this evening with temperatures only falling into the low 70s.
More humidity arrives on Saturday.
Temperatures will heat up to 90° with heat indices in the low 90s.
There is a chance of a shower or storm by Saturday evening. Temperatures only fall into the low 70s Sunday morning.
A cold front will arrive on Sunday, triggering showers and thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon.
It will be wet at times on Father’s Day, with temperatures climbing back into the upper 80s.
Another round of showers and storms will be around on Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning.
Cooler air returns by Tuesday on through Thursday with temperatures heating back up by Friday on into the weekend.
A mix of clouds and sunshine for Friday
There were just enough clouds to keep temperatures from reaching 90 degrees today. Under those clouds, there were a few sprinkles/showers across the eastern half of the state. That weather system sitting off to our east will start to drift back toward the East Coast for Friday and the weekend. This will mean 90 degree heat is on the way.
Expect a mix of sun and clouds on Friday, with highs near 90 degrees. There is a slight chance for an afternoon pop-up shower or brief storm on Friday and Saturday. The bigger story on Saturday will be the heat. We are forecasting highs in the range of 90 to 95 degrees.
We will also be watching a complex of storms across Illinois late Saturday. Right now it is looking like it doesn't quite get here, but that boundary may cause a few storms for Father's Day on Sunday. We will have a better idea on the timing of that storm chance for Sunday, as we get closer. These complexes of storms that develop with the summer heat and higher humidity can be tough to time too far in advance. It will be warm and muggy for Sunday, with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s.
Scattered storms are possible on Monday and may linger into Tuesday next week. It stays warm and muggy with highs in the middle and upper 80s.
