Indy tied a record from 1896 on Wednesday, with a high of 89. Same high temp in Lafayette, Muncie, and Kokomo. The high hit 90 in Bloomington and the Haute.
The biggest difference today? Less humid air is filtering in from the east.
The humidity will be up just a bit tomorrow, but not as muggy as it was earlier this week.
The next best chance of rain and storms is this weekend, in both the afternoons and evenings. The big ridge above us will break down, as an upper level low to our southeast retrogrades to the northwest. That low will combine with a weak cold front at the surface to bring back unsettled weather. Severe weather chances are pretty low, with not a lot of upper level winds. That may contribute to the threat of slow moving rain and storms that could cause isolated flooding. Otherwise, rain totals should generally stay around a third of an inch.
