INDIANAPOLIS — A dome of heat has arrived in central Indiana with temperatures quickly warming through the 80s into the low 90s. If you're headed to the Colts camp today, remember to stay well hydrated and take breaks in the shade.
Highs today will be in the low to mid-90s with heat indices from 100-105 this afternoon.
A complex of storms will develop to our northwest and potentially impact northwestern parts of the state in the evening. The Storm Prediction Center has placed this zone under a Level 2 of 5 for the risk of scattered strong to severe storms with damaging wind gusts as the primary threat.
This line of storms moves in around sunset and will continue to fall apart as it tracks southeast into central Indiana overnight.
A few lingering showers will be possible out at the bus stops Thursday morning with overnight lows staying warm and muggy in the low 70s.
After some dry hours, scattered storms redevelop during the afternoon with heavy downpours and lightning possible. Severe storms are not expected.
The unsettled pattern continues into Friday with scattered storms possible. Highs remain in the mid-80s.
We'll heat up to near 90 degrees this weekend with a few stray storms possible both Saturday and Sunday.
