Scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed across Central Indiana. Storms north of I-70 have been much weaker and well below severe criteria. But storms in southern Indiana have tapped into more unstable air and are becoming severe. Because of this, the NWS has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for our southern counties until 10 PM. 2" diameter hail and 70 mph winds will be possible with the stronger storms. All storms are moving E/SE at 15-30 mph.
Locally, the counties included in this watch include Greene, Lawrence, Jackson, Jennings and Ripley County.
All of Central Indiana still has a chance for an isolated shower as we go throughout the rest of the evening but the main focus will definitely be south of Indianapolis.
The front that brought in the rain will also bring in cooler air as we go into the workweek. We ended up with 4 days at 100°F or higher. Temperatures on Sunday for the most part ended up in the mid 90s, especially if you were south of I-70. But Monday will finally bring in closer to normal temperatures and a reduction in the oppressive heat! Highs should top out in the upper 80s for the majority of this week with much lower humidity ratings.
