Heat continues; stormy pattern around the corner

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — 90° heat continues to open up the shortened work week.  Several rain chances move in for the second half of the work week.


A few spotty storms have developed in northern and northwestern portions of central Indiana.  Those will fade by mid-evening.

Quiet weather, with warm temperatures and humid air will continue into the overnight hours.  Lows dip to the lower 70s.

Back to work with more heat and humidity.  Highs look to reaching the 90° mark across much of central Indiana by Tuesday afternoon.

Like the past few days, a few isolated thunderstorms will be possible during the afternoon/early evening hours.  


Not much change in terms of temperatures, as highs run up to the upper 80s.  Again, a few thunderstorms will be possible.  Coverage may be slightly higher, as a stationary boundary scoots closer to the area.  

Tropical Storm Gordon: 

As we now roll toward the peak portions of the Atlantic hurricane season, there is plenty of activity to watch over the coming week.  Gordon is now a tropical storm, pounding southern Florida with heavy rain and gusty winds.  Gordon will head over a very warm Gulf of Mexico, before making landfall along the mouth of the Mississippi River later this week.  Eventually, the remnants of Gordon will work into the central part of the country, and will get mixed in with the upper-level flow, possibly bringing the remnants to central Indiana by this weekend.  A lot of questions in terms of exact track, so stay up to date with the forecast if you have outdoor plans this weekend.

8-day forecast:

Our next best rain chance comes with a cold front on Thursday, which will also bring a welcomed cool down to the area.  Isolated showers are expected early Friday, before the potential for widespread rain associated with the remnants of Gordon work into central Indiana for the weekend.
