STATEWIDE–It will be a mostly sunny and warm week across the state, but there is a chance for severe storms around Thursday.
“It is going to be more seasonable. The humidity will be down a decent amount, so it won’t be quite as sticky,” said Mike Koch, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “We won’t have to worry about the heat index over the next few days. It’s just the temperatures will be a little high (90s in some spots).”
The worst day for humidity is expected to be Thursday.
“That’s when the cold front comes down. We could be looking at some strong storms on Thursday and Thursday night. That’s when we’re also possibly looking at mid-90s over southwestern parts of central Indiana from areas mainly from Greensburg and Terre Haute to south of that line,” said Koch.
The cold front increases the chances for storms, but it also means cooler temperatures are coming after Thursday.
“It’s mainly going to be Thursday, then it gets better after that,” said Koch.
High temperatures across Indiana are expected to be in the low 80s Friday and then into the weekend.
