90s continue with remnants of Barry moving in this week

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Hot conditions will continue Sunday, as much needed rainfall inches closer to central Indiana.

Sunday:

A frontal boundary draped across the northern portions of the state is responsible for some showers and storms in our far northern counties this morning. Expect a few more storms to pop across central and southern Indiana later this afternoon as the atmosphere becomes more unstable. No severe weather is expected, but heavy downpours will be possible.

Highs will again make a run at the lower 90s Sunday afternoon, with heat index values in the middle 90s.

Sunday Night:

Shower and storm chances will fizzle out after sunset, leaving us quiet and muggy overnight. Lows will fall to the lower 70s.

Monday:

Much of the day will be dry, hot and humid. A few scattered storms may be possible in east central Indiana by mid to late afternoon.

Highs will top out near 90°, with heat indices in the middle 90s.

Remnants of Barry:

Much needed rainfall for a good portions of the state is set to arrive for the mid week, as the the remnants of Barry move through the Midwest. Tuesday afternoon and evening look to be the best time frame for steady, and at times heavy rainfall, with showers starting to subside heading through the day on Wednesday.

Projections place much of central Indiana between a range of 1″-3″ of rainfall out of the system.

8 day forecast:

Once our mid-week rain moves out, some pretty intense heat and humidity move in. Dew point temperatures will surge into the middle 70s for Thursday and Friday. Add to that temperatures boosting into the 90s, it makes for a miserably hot and humid end to the work week, where heat indices should work into the lower 100s. High heat looks to hold on into next weekend as well.

How to make Apple Pie Tacos

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s dessert … in a taco shell!

Apple Pie Tacos are easy, delicious, and kids love them! 

Apple Pie Tacos

9 soft street-taco shells (see note below)
2 tablespoons raw sugar 
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 
5 ROCKIT® apples, skin left on and diced
2 tablespoon raw honey 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
2 teaspoons cornstarch 
1/4 cup water, plus more
coconut whipped cream 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a plate, sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon. Gently mix the two together. Spray both sides of the soft taco shells with nonstick cooking spray, then lightly dip both sides in the cinnamon mixture. 
2. Flip a muffin tin over. Place each cinnamon-coated soft taco shell between each of the muffin tins, so that the muffin-tin humps help the taco shell stay in place and formed. Place in the the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. 
3. To make apple filling, combine chopped apples, honey, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir cornstarch into the 1/4 cup water and add to the saucepan. Heat on medium for about 10 minutes until apples are completely softened and gooey-thick. You may need to add more water — about another 1/4 cup — as the apples cook to create a sauce-like mixture. 
4. Spoon the apple filling into each of the taco shells. Top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle cinnamon, or a little granola.  Enjoy immediately!

Note: A tortilla that’s about 3-4 inches across works great. If you need to, you can take a larger wheat tortilla, and cookie-cut it using a 3-4 inch small bowl.
