Hot and humid with scattered thunderstorms this week

Showers and storms are possible almost daily through Friday.

HEAT ADVISORY TODAY: NOON – 8PM

A busy forecast as we close the weekend and start next week. First, the heat advisory is still in place until 8 p.m. this evening

A cold front to our northwest is slowly making its way into the Ohio River Valley. A complex of thunderstorms was found in central Indiana Sunday afternoon slowly making its way to the east and southeast. A few showers and storms could fire off late this evening into the first part of the night, but there’s uncertainty whether the front will make it in time before we stabilize for the night. In storms that do develop pose a risk of torrential rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning.

Heat and humidity continues into the new week with near daily chances for rain. Though Monday won’t be as hot (still in the low 90s) the humidity will remain with heat index values nearing the triple digits. Thunderstorms again possible Monday with larger coverage expected Tuesday. The likelihood of widespread rain increases for Wednesday and Thursday. The severe threat is level 1 of 5 through Tuesday. Like the past several events, heavy rain, strong winds, and frequent lightning are the primary threats, perhaps with a little hail. Temperatures through this week will be in the 90s with almost daily chances for rain.

TONIGHT: Very humid with a few showers or a storm; mild. Low: 77°. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

TOMORROW: Hot and humid with a few thunderstorms. High: 92°. Wind: W 5-10 mph.

TUESDAY: Hot and humid with scattered thunderstorms. High: 92°. Wind: SW 5 mph.
