Hot Labor Day weekend underway with minimal storm chances

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Good Saturday evening, everyone! As expected, some of us saw a few nuisance storms to start the holiday weekend. Even with a bit of rain, most areas managed to top out in the mid 80s or warmer. 

Through the evening, the storms will fizzle out and temps will slowly sink into the mid 70s by midnight.

Temps will eventually tumble into the upper 60s and low 70s by daybreak Sunday. 

With the mild temps for a starting point and a continued southerly breeze through the day, temperatures will rise quickly Sunday afternoon. 

Most areas will top out in the upper 80s with feels like temps in the low to mid 90s through the afternoon hours. Stay cool if you have outdoor plans! 

With the hot air and increased humidity, we’ll see another round of isolated, nuisance storms tomorrow. More of us than not will stay dry, so just make sure to stay hydrated. 

If you’re off for Labor Day Monday, expect even warmer temperatures as rain chances dwindle. We’ll top out in the low 90s in many areas with feels like temperatures in the mid 90s. 

Rain chances look to remain minimal through mid-week.

With limited rain opportunities and high pressure keeping skies more sunny than not, temperatures will stick around in the low 90s until better rain chances return Thursday.

Similar to what we saw yesterday, another round of wet and stormy weather is possible in southern Indiana for high school football next Friday. The Colts’ home opener next weekend looks to feature a closed roof at this time, but a lot can change between now and next Sunday, so stay tuned!
