Remnants of Florence will bring better rain chances by Sunday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Good Saturday evening, everyone! We’ve seen a steamy start to the weekend with high temps in the mid to upper 80s and heat indices in the low 90s at times. 

Saturday evening, temperatures will slowly sink under partly cloudy skies. 

We will eventually sink into the upper 60s and low 70s with a mix of clouds and clear skies by daybreak Sunday. 

High temperatures Sunday will soar into the mid to upper 80s again with heat indices approaching the upper 80s and low 90s. 

Cloud cover will increase by Sunday afternoon with a slim chance for a rain shower or storm by the afternoon and evening hours, courtesy of the remains of Florence. 

Better rain and storm chances will move our way Monday as what’s left of Florence moves into the Ohio Valley, just off to our east. 

Right around half of us or less will see wet weather with everyone at least seeing a bit of a cool down to start work and school.

Hurricane Florence is now a tropical storm with winds sustained in the mid 40s with gusts up to the 60 mph mark. 

Rain has been the biggest concern with this storm from the start and North Carolina is seeing some of its worst flooding in state history with measured rain reports over 20-24” in some areas over the last 36 hours. 

The remnants of the storms look to head our way by early next week, just close enough to bring us cooler temps, breezy conditions and a few rain showers by late Sunday and Monday.

Temperatures will rebound by mid to late week with highs in the upper 80s Thursday. 

Relief from the heat will return by the end of the work week and next weekend as a cold front moves through, also bringing in better rain chances.

By next weekend, with scattered rain and storms, temperatures will finally be more seasonable… just in time for the first day of autumn next Saturday.
