Hot holiday on tap; relief is in sight

Weather Blog

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Extreme heat and humidity will hang around for the holiday.  Storm chances increase for the end of the week.

TONIGHT:

Stalled out boundary is responsible for scattered downpours developing this afternoon.  Look for that trend to continue into the evening hours as well.  No severe weather is expected, but heavy downpours are likely with any storm that develops, which could lead to some minor flooding issues.

Rain should clear the area overnight.  Muggy and warm overnight temperatures are expected, with lows only dipping to the lower to middle 70s.

Independence Day:

Heat Advisory will be in effect from Noon to 8pm for most of central Indiana.

Expect heat index readings to top 100° in many locations, and even above 105° in some areas as well.

May see a spotty storm or two develop around and north of I-70 during the afternoon hours, but at this point the feeling is rain chances will be few and far between.

Should be good for fireworks displays around central Indiana, including the IPL Freedom Fest in downtown Indianapolis.

Thursday:

Should start the day off dry.  Expecting another round of hot and humid conditions, with highs topping out in the lower 90s, and heat indices near 100°.

Cold front blasting through the Midwest Thursday evening should spark numerous showers and storms to the area for the second half of the day.  Rain chances will likely linger on into early Friday morning.

Relief!:
Cold front responsible for the rain Thursday/Friday will bring some much needed relief from our recent hot and humid spell.  A beautiful weekend on tap, with sunshine, seasonal temperatures, and most importantly, much lower humidity!

We’ll start to see a rise in the temps starting early in the new work week, and a return of 90° heat and higher humidity by mid week.
