STATEWIDE–Temperatures will warm up this week and rain returns, says the National Weather Service in Indianapolis.

You can expect high temperatures across much of the state to be in the low 90s or upper 80s until about Thursday.

“There will be some decent humidity levels. We’ll see heat index values in the upper 90s for Tuesday and Wednesday,” says Aaron Updike, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Indianapolis. “There won’t be any heat warnings or anything like that, but still make sure you stay hydrated.”

Updike says when you are outside for long periods of time, you can get overheated without realizing it.

“If you ever feel light-headed or faint, make sure you’re getting into some shade and drink some water. It can be a sudden thing. Make sure you’re taking precautions at all cost,” says Updike.

Updike believes it will stay dry until Thursday.

“We’ve got a slight chance of precipitation for most of the state Thursday and again on Friday,” says Updike.

By the weekend, we could be getting some “remnants of a tropical system down from the Gulf.” Tropical Storm Marco has been making its way up the Gulf.

“But right now, it’s still pretty far out to have a lot of confidence, but it does look like it will take a northerly track,” says Updike.

Updike anticipates there being only scattered showers and thunderstorms later in the week, but also urges you to pay close attention to the forecast because it can always change.
