Summer heat set to return with limited storm chances through the weekend

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Good Thursday morning, everyone! We saw a few stray storms yesterday, but most areas didn’t get on the board with any measurable precip. 

Patchy fog will be an issue as you head out the door to work or school this morning. Outside of the fog, expect mostly clear skies and comfortable temps. 

With mostly clear skies, temperatures will rise quickly. We’ll top out in the mid 80s this afternoon. 

A stray storm is possible late this afternoon/evening in far northern Indiana, but the majority of us will remain dry. Temps will drop into the low 70s late this evening. 

With mostly clear skies, we’ll bottom out in the upper 60s by daybreak Friday. Some outlying areas could sink as low as the low 60s for the Friday morning drive. 

The Indiana State Fair opens up for the 161st year tomorrow and the weather will be very typical for the first week of August. Highs will top out in the mid 80s in most areas. 

In addition to summer heat and humidity looking to return, a stray storm or two is likely through the day tomorrow, primarily through the afternoon and early evening, though overall rain chances are low. 

We’ll see temperatures continue to rise over the next several days and into the weekend. We look to top out in the upper 80s and low 90s with a slim chance for a storm or two both Saturday and Sunday. 

Better rain and storm chances will return through the first half of next work/school week.

Along with the better storm chances, temps look to take a dive again by the latter half of the 8-Day Forecast with highs only topping out in the upper 70s by this time next week.
