Plethora of rain in the coming days will help to cool us down after hot, dry days

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Good Thursday morning, everyone! We’ve been mostly dry and hot the past several days, but that will all change as the remnants of Gordon head this direction in the coming days. 

We’re mostly dry this morning outside of an isolated shower. Temperatures with a blanket of cloud cover are very mild, in the low 70s. 

We will stay fairly dry through mid-day with temps slowly working their way into the mid 80s this afternoon, a few degrees above average. 

By 3-4pm, isolated storms will develop, becoming more widespread by the early evening hours. We’re not anticipating any severe storms today.

Late this evening, temps will be slow to cool. We’ll drop into the mid 70s before midnight. 

Overnight lows will be just a hair cooler than what we will see this morning. Overnight lows will bottom out in the mid to upper 60s in most areas by daybreak Friday. 

Our Friday will get off to a dry enough start and temps will climb into the mid 70s before being halted by widespread rain and storms. 

By 4-5pm, rain will move in and continue through the evening. 

If you’re heading to high school football games, make sure to pack the rain gear and don’t be surprised by a lightning delay or two. 

This weekend will be no different as widespread rain associated with the remnants of Gordon push towards and through central Indiana. The Hoosier’s home opener this Saturday evening will likely be a soggy one.

Through the first half of the weekend, most areas may pick up an inch or more of rain and we look to double that amount or more Sunday, alone. 

Rain chances will fall off sharply by early Monday and temperatures look to remain cool until that same time before 80s return Tuesday and Wednesday. 

The roof will be closed for the Colts season opener against the Bengals on Sunday. Our best chances to get outside and get some yard work done will be Monday and Tuesday before isolated storm threats return by mid-week next week.
