A fantastic end to the weekend as Indianapolis hit 80° for the first time of 2024. It has been over six months since the last time the capital city reached 80°. That was October 2, 2023.

The early June-like weather continues for the start of the work week. Skies will be mainly sunny around central Indiana Monday as a boundary lays across the state. Temperatures will top out in the 70°s to lower 80°s.

Along the boundary a few isolated thunderstorms will be possible during peak heating of the day, but I suspect these will happen south of the WRTV viewing area.

There will be a better chance for showers and thunderstorms in central Indiana late Tuesday night and Wednesday. I think three rounds will be possible.

  1. A few scattered showers will be possible as a warm front lifts through central Indiana Tuesday afternoon.
  2. Thunderstorms will develop over Missouri and Illinois Tuesday evening - reaching Indiana late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning.
  3. We may get a break in the clouds Wednesday morning (dry slot) which will allow the atmosphere to destabalize ahead of a cold front. This may allow for enough instability to build and thunderstorms to develop ahead of the cold front late Wednesday morning and through the early afternoon.

We'll have to keep an eye on storms that develop early Wednesday morning (round 2) and again for round 3 as some may be strong. The Storm Prediction Center includes portions of western Indiana in a "slight risk" for severe storms from the round 2 storms.

Temperatures will return to near normal levels Thursday and drop below normal for the end of the week and in to the weekend.
