Live Doppler 13 Forecast

Forecast updated at Sep 20th, 2018 - 11:11am (EDT)

Another hot one in Central Indiana with temperatures nearing record warm levels this afternoon in the lower 90s. Spotty storms remain possible before 7pm but many areas likely don't see a drop. Look for a situation much like yesterday as we get close to the record of 94 set back in 1940.

We're still targeting Friday afternoon for the arrival of a cold front and eventual break from this heat wave. However, temperatures climb into the mid/upper 80s with heat indices 90+ on Friday before the front clears.

There's plenty of wiggle room on timing and coverage, but right now downpours/storms appears likely along the front between 12pm and 7pm Friday... and some of the storms could produce severe wind and/or hail.

It's possible much of the storms may be in southern Indiana by the time most Operation Football games kick-off. Areas south of I-70 could see the rain a little longer.

A cooler change emerges behind the front over the weekend with highs in the upper 60s to mid 70s. The front stalls along the Ohio River but will be close enough to warrant the mention to potential of showers Saturday. The astronomical start of autumn occurs at 9:54pm Saturday evening.

An active pattern seems likely next week as we transition from summer warmth to much below average temperatures. In fact there's growing consensus of lows in the 40s late next week into next weekend...the coolest since late April.
