Rain chances Wednesday; relief from the heat returns Thursday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A quick shot of more refreshing air move in behind Wednesday storm chances.


Mainly clear and muggy conditions, with a few clouds working into northwestern portions of the state near daybreak.  Lows fall to the lower to middle 70s, overnight.


Cold front will swing through the state, sparking isolated to scattered showers and storms to the area.  There is a marginal risk  that some of the storms could be severe, with damaging winds and large hail the primary concern.

While rain won’t be widespread, our best shot for several areas seeing rain will likely be in the early to mid-morning hours.  A few isolated showers and storms will be possible in the afternoon, but coverage will much more limited.

Highs top out in the middle 80s.


Far more refreshing air settling in after our Wednesday cold front.  Temperatures will struggle to reach 80° across much of the state.

8-day forecast:

Friday should remain dry as we wrap up the work week.  The holiday weekend has daily rain/storm chances, but it’s worth mentioning that rain chances won’t be widespread – and confidence is not high on if the rain even makes it all the way down from the north.  That said, if you have outdoor plans, keep an eye for updates as we get closer.  What we do know is that the heat will crank back up, as will the humidity heading into Labor Day.  The Middle 80s will be a common theme heading into the new work week as well.
