"MUGGLIES" RETURN MID-WEEK

Enjoy the lower humidity while you can because the humidity will quickly rise starting Wednesday as winds turn out of the south-southwest.

Dew Point Forecast - 55 - 4 Day - Auto Days - ECMWF

You'll notice the increase Wednesday, but you will likely feel it Thursday as dew points climb in to the lower to middle 70°s.

The humidity will return ahead of a cold front.  Computer models suggest the front will slowly move through central Indiana, eventually stalling out just south of  southern Indiana, Thursday.

As the front approaches Wednesday, a few isolated showers/thunderstorms will be possible, especially in western and northwestern sections of central Indiana.  The front will lift moisture in the lower levels and produce showers and thunderstorms Thursday.
