Tue evening forecast – Jul 2, 2024

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indianapolis ended up having a nicer Tuesday than originally forecasted, but the forecast still calls for miserable air and multiple rounds of rain and storms for the second half of the week.

The pattern could impact Fourth of July plans to an extent.

Tuesday night

Cloud cover and humidity values will increase, which will make way for a warmer and muggy night. Lows will only fall into the low to mid 70s.

Wednesday

Rain and storm chances will return, and start with the potential for a few showers in the morning hours. Additional development will happen in the afternoon hours as Indianapolis deals with a jungle-like air mass due with miserable humidity levels and hotter temperatures.

Showers and storms look to continue into the nighttime hours mainly in southern Indiana. This will be because of the front stalling out Wednesday night after it moves from the north.

There is potential for strong to severe storms. A slight risk — Level 2 of 5 — is in place for over half of the state. Damaging winds will be the main concern, but some localized flooding could happen.

Highs will rise into the upper 80s, and with high dew points, over 70. Heat index values will be near or over 100.

Fourth of July

Active weather will persists into Thursday with showers and storms likely during the morning hours as the front retreats north a little. Then, activity will be on and off for the rest of the day. There will be the possibility of a few showers and storms Thursday night.

Isolated strong to severe storms are also possible Thursday with wind and hail as the main concerns.

Highs will top out in the low to mid 80s with a cranked muggy meter remaining in place.

8-Day Forecast

More rain and storms will be possible at times Friday before Indianapolis dries out on the weekend. Humidity values on the weekend won’t be as terrible but still on the uncomfortable side with highs in the low to mid 80s. Storm chances will return by late Sunday into early next week.
