- Hot and humid open to the week
- Scattered early week storms
- Much cooler and less humid times loom
Time To Sweat…A hot and increasingly humid airmass will be with us as we open a new week. While most of the upcoming 24-48 hours will remain rain-free, we will mention chances of an isolated to widely scattered thunderstorm Monday. Most will remain free of rain and storms, but those lucky folks who do find themselves under a storm Monday can expect to pick up a quick 1″ of rain. Better overall coverage of showers and thunderstorms will develop late Monday night into Tuesday.
Typically, a pattern change such as what we’ll undergo this week (summer-like to early fall-like) would yield widespread showers and thunderstorms. However, a look at short-term, higher resolution data isn’t particularly “excited” about widespread significant rainfall across central Indiana. We expect a weakening complex of thunderstorms off to our northwest to drift southeast Monday night. Depending on how quickly this complex weakens will determine rainfall amounts, locally. Additionally, it’s very possible this weakening storm complex will serve to limit new thunderstorm development Tuesday as the cold front moves closer. We do note high resolution data places emphasis on northern and southern parts of the state for heaviest rains and it’s tough to disagree with that idea given what we’re looking at right now. Stay tuned.
Regardless of the rain and storm situation, locally, we’ll all turn significantly cooler by midweek. In fact, temperatures will grow cool enough to feel like mid-September. Dry conditions will carry us into next weekend.
Upcoming 7-Day Precipitation Forecast:
