We’re watching for storms to develop in Iowa and Missouri late Sunday night.  If they develop, they should move east/southeast around a bubble of warm air, allowing them to arrive in southwestern Indiana early Monday morning.  There will also be a chance for showers and thunderstorms to develop during the afternoon, especially southwest of Indianapolis.

Temperatures Monday will widely range from upper 70°s to upper 80°s.  It will be in the southwest as showers and thunderstorms knock temperatures down.

While it will be warm, it should be a good afternoon to take in practice at Colts Training Camp at Anderson University Monday afternoon.  Temperatures will be in the lower to middle 80°s with a very small chance for a shower/thunderstorm.

Temperatures will start to climb in to the upper 80°s and lower 90°s as we go through the workweek.  Moisture in lower levels will surge northeast in to Indiana taking dew points in to the lower and middle 70°s Tuesday through Friday.  This will allow for peak heat indices to climb to the 90°s and perhaps lower 100°s.

Right now, long-range computer models suggest a cold front will pass through central Indiana Friday.  Behind the front, drier air is projected to move south through the state.  Stay tuned…
