Nice weekend comes to an end with strong storms set to slide in Monday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Good Sunday evening, everyone! Temperatures continue to rise this weekend with mostly dry conditions, but rain and strong storms will return for the start of the work week. 

High temps this afternoon topped out in the mid 80s in most areas with a mix of sun and clouds. 

With a few lingering clouds into the overnight, temps will be slow to drop. We will sink into the mid 70s just before midnight…

…bottoming out in the mid 60s to low 70s for your Monday morning commute. 

While we’re going to give the morning drive a green light with just mostly cloudy skies, make sure to take the rain gear with you as showers and storms will develop by mid-day and continue into the evening.
