Heat streak will come to an end with better rain and storm chances

Weather Blog

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Good Thursday morning! We’re off to another mild and muggy start with temps in the low 60s. No need for a jacket or sweatshirt as you head out the door, but you may pack an umbrella if you live in southern Indiana. 

Temperatures will quickly climb into the low 80s through the afternoon hours with a few showers and storms possible, mostly south of the I-70 corridor. 

Highs will top out above average for the 17th straight day and less than 10 degrees shy of a record. 

We’ll dry out late this evening and into the early overnight. Low temps will drop into the low 60s by daybreak Friday.

The work week will end on a soggy note with on-and-off showers and storms likely through the day Friday. Highs will top out in the low 70s, finally snapping our heat streak. 

If you’re heading to Fast Friday practice at IMS, make sure to keep the rain gear handy and expect delays. 

Rain and storms will continue into the late evening and early hours Saturday before we finally dry out a bit early Saturday. The first half of the weekend will be mostly dry with scattered rain and storms, but better storm chances return Sunday. Highs both days will return to the upper 70s and low 80s. 

Rain chances taper off a bit into early next week along with temperatures. Highs Monday and Tuesday will drop into the low to mid 70s in many areas with overnight lows in the upper 50s and low 60s. 

After a lull through mid-week, another round of showers and storms will move back into central Indiana by this time next week with highs in the low to mid 80s.
