SEVERE WX: Flood Warning View Alerts

Strong to severe thunderstorms late this evening

Near record to record warm temperatures today and we are tracking strong to severe thunderstorms late this evening.

Posted: May. 14, 2018 1:09 PM

Another summer-like day across central Indiana with record high temperatures expected! Heat indices will climb into the upper 80s to lower 90s. Our record high was 90° set in 1987. Drink plenty of water if you are outdoors today and limit your time outside if possible. This summer-like pattern continues across the area with humidity on the rise and sticky conditions.

As for storm chances, it looks like we will be mainly dry today during the daytime hours. A few isolated storms are expected to roll in later this evening. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible along a nearly stationary surface boundary in northern and central Indiana. Primary threat will be damaging winds and lightning. Overnight lows well above average at 67 degrees.

There will be chances for thunderstorms every day. Temperatures will remain much above average through the weekend. You will want to have your umbrella handy as storms could flare up pretty quickly during the peak heating of the day. No day looks to be a complete washout as plenty of hazy sunshine will be mixed in.
