Warm & humid air back on Friday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Our comfortable cooldown will be brief, as warmer temps and higher humidity return as we gear up for the holiday weekend.


Mainly clear and comfortable, with low temps and humidity heading into the overnight.  Morning temperatures fall to the upper 50s up north and lower to middle 60s across central and southern Indiana.


Another dry day on tap, but it will be warmer, and noticeably more humid across the area, setting us up for an extended period of higher heat and muggy conditions for the holiday weekend and beyond.  Highs hit the middle 80s by the afternoon.

The Zone week 3 (High school football)

Good looking night for games across the state, with kick off temps in the lower 80s, and end of game temps in the upper 70s.

Labor Day weekend:

As previously mentioned, temps will continue to climb over the coming days.  We’ll be sandwiched between high pressure of the Carolinas, and a stationary boundary just to our north.  That boundary will result in heavier rains in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan, but not much here, thanks for the Carolina high keeping the boundary at bay.  That said, we’ll likely have a few afternoon “pop-up” storms Saturday and Sunday, but not enough of an issue to cancel any plans if you are spending time outdoors this holiday. 

Highs top out in the upper 80s to around 90°.

8-day forecast:

We’ll head back to work and school with more heat and humidity, with several days near or at 90°.  Some spotty rain/storm chances will be possible by mid-week, but like the weekend, these should be very isolated and fueled by the heating of the day.
