STATEWIDE–This week brings heat relief, according to the National Weather Service.
Along with cooler temperatures, however, you can expect rain to be heavy at times.
“The best chances for rain are along and south of the I-70 corridor. The cold front is across just north of Indianapolis and up towards Kokomo. It will be slowly sagging southward across the state as the day goes on,” said Jason Puma, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.
Sunday and Monday brought high temperatures in the 90s with heat index values close to 100. Puma says a much cooler stretch begins Tuesday.
“Today we’re only expecting highs around 80 degrees in most places. As we go on through the rest of the work week and into the weekend, we’ll see temperatures only in the lower 80s,” said Puma.
Some of these storm systems that move in at times through the week could move slowly.
“So if you get underneath one of these, it could result in a brief period of flooding. If you encounter high water, be sure to turn around and don’t drown,” said Puma.
Puma urges you to keep an eye on the forecast because it can always change.
