Cool with rain for next 2 days; summer heat arrives later this week

Weather

One to two inches of rain fell across the state Monday, bringing our monthly rainfall total close to three inches. Our soggy weather pattern will continue for the next two days, and an additional half-inch of rain is likely.

A ridge of high pressure will build over the region by midweek, sending temperatures surging into the 80s. We have only had one 80° day in Indianapolis so far this year, which came on April 27. We see a streak of warm days through the weekend. Humidity will rise as well. Dew point temperatures will rise into the 60s, and it will start to feel muggy.

Expect mainly dry weather through the weekend, although a few isolated, afternoon thunderstorms can’t be ruled out under these conditions.
