Cold front to bring strong storms to central Indiana Tuesday evening


The 30-day outlook for September is calling for near average temperatures. This has been a mild month so far with temperatures 2.2 degrees below average. We have already had almost an inch of rain, so the month is off to a wet start as well.

Tuesday was the warmest day of the week with highs in the mid 80s. As a cold front approaches this evening, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop. These will most likely arrive around 9 p.m. and slide southeast into early Wednesday. A couple stronger, gusty storms can’t be ruled out. Up to a quarter inch of rain is likely with the heaviest rain falling north of I-70.

After a warm Tuesday, we’ll have milder, less humid weather behind the cold front. Expect lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s for the rest of the week. Temperatures will be slightly warmer for the weekend with highs back in the 80s. The weekend looks dry with our next chance for rain not coming until early next week.

Storms will develop by 9 p.m.

Storms will move into Indianapolis by 10 p.m.

Heavy rain will soak the northern half of the state by 11 p.m.

Storms will move south of I-70 after midnight.

Rain will taper off after 1 a.m.

The September is calling for near normal temperatures.

So far, this has been a mild month.

Temperatures will stay in the 70s until the weekend.
