Live Doppler 13 Weather Blog: Hot and stormy pattern returning

Much of Wednesday is rain/storm-free, but there is a risk of damaging wind from an expected storm complex Wednesday night.

INDIANAPOLIS — Wrapping-up another pleasantly warm summer day in Central Indiana. Though highs did climb into the mid/upper 80s...dewpoints remained relatively comfortable in the lower 60s.

High clouds and scattered cumulus linger around this evening for a pretty sunset and then all eyes return to the sky for another International Space Station flyover... and the Comet NEOWISE.

The ISS will be visible for six minutes between 10:00-10:06 PM moving south-southwest to east-northeast... and again 11:37-11:43 PM west to northeast.

Comet NEOWISE viewing is in the low northwest horizon approximately 60-75 minutes after sunset (9:12 PM). It can be seen without magnification, but that requires being far-removed from city light pollution.

Each passing night NEOWISE gets a bit higher in the horizon to become easier to see. But we'll have to navigate through clouds and storms at times moving forward.

The Muggy Meter climbs Wednesday and so do high temperatures which return to the 90s. Much of Wednesday is rain/storm-free, but there is a risk of damaging wind from an expected storm complex Wednesday night (mainly after 7 PM). With or without severe weather, areas of heavy rain seem likely.

Uncomfortable heat lingers into and beyond the weekend with occasional heavy storm clusters.
