STATEWIDE–There is a possibility of severe weather Thursday night, according to the National Weather Service.

“The majority of the storm threat will focus south of I-70 and probably down into the Wabash Valley. Damaging winds would be the primary threat,” said Mike Ryan, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

Ryan says the threat of storms exists until early Friday morning. That is when he believes temperatures will start to cool down.

“We’ll fall back into the 80s Friday, but the dew points will be down. That means the humidity levels will be down. We’re expecting highs in the 70s and low 80s on Saturday. Low humidity again on Saturday. Temperatures will start to climb back up again on Sunday, but there will be low humidity,” said Ryan.

After the weekend, Ryan says it will warm up next week.

“I think we’re back in the low-to-mid 90s to start the week Monday. Then it gets a little warmer from there. We’re not going to see quite the levels of humidity like we’ve seen the last couple of days where it’s been really oppressive. With the air being a little bit drier, it will be easier to warm a little bit more. That is kind of the thinking behind that,” said Ryan.

Ryan believes there could be storms next week with the best chances of those being next Wednesday and Thursday.
