The National Weather Service in Indianapolis has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for Carroll-Warren-Tippecanoe-Clinton-Howard-Fountain-Montgomery-Boone-
Rush-Sullivan-Greene-Monroe-Brown-Bartholomew-Decatur-Knox and Daviess counties.
This hazardous weather outlook is for central Indiana.
DAY ONE…Today and Tonight:
Outlook: Hot and humid with thunderstorms possible.
Hazards: Heat stress, lightning, gusty winds, heavy rain.
Timing: Hot conditions during the afternoon, thunderstorm hazards as early as 4 PM over the far northwest, overspreading the remainder of the area during the night.
Discussion: An approaching disturbance may produce a few showers and storms across the area later today into tonight. Otherwise, a hot and humid airmass will increase the risk for heat related illnesses today.
DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Sunday through Friday:
Outlook: Heat index values will peak in the mid to upper 90s during the afternoon hours through Monday. Thunderstorms will be a threat at times through Monday night, and again on Friday. Severe storms are not expected at this time, but any storm carries a threat of lightning, as well as the potential to produce gusty winds and brief heavy downpours.
Discussion: A frontal system will produce the threat for thunderstorms into the early part of the week, before high pressure behind the front brings cooler and less humid air into the area.
SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT… Spotter activation is not anticipated.
