A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, warm temperatures and the ongoing dry conditions have elevated our area this afternoon to a Red Flag Warning. This will go into effect from Noon to 8 PM across roughly the northern half of central Indiana. Outdoor burning is not recommended. Any fires that develop could spread rapidly. Expect overnight lows to be pleasant near 60.
Another dry and warm day with highs around 80 degrees and plenty of sunshine. South winds will start to increase by your lunch hour with gusts up to 30 miles per hour.
Isolated showers and a few thunderstorms will start your Wednesday morning commute with daytime highs back in the 80s and overnight lows in the upper 60s. Higher humidity values and increasing rain chances will arrive by Wednesday and Thursday to allow the fire danger to subside.
A frontal boundary will edge east towards our area later Wednesday night into Thursday bringing with it the threat for scattered thunderstorms to our area. A few of the storms may approach severe limits Wednesday to our northwest with our primary threat for severe storms, including the threat from damaging wind gusts and large hail, being on Thursday into Thursday night as the front settles across the area.
