Tuesday: Isolated P.M. thunderstorms. This weather will continue all week, and heavy rain is possible. No day looks to be a complete washout as plenty of hazy sunshine will be mixed in. As of right now, the weekend forecast has showers and storms possible on Saturday, then cooler and drier weather on Sunday. We don't expect any severe thunderstorms and heat levels will drop, with highs mostly in the low 80s.

With Bermuda high pressure still off the east coast, temperatures will soar once again by this afternoon with winds out of the south.

New info suggests we'll stay on the western and drier side of this low, meaning little if any heavy tropical rainfall for us this week. The unsettled weather will likely continue into the weekend.

Daytime highs should be almost the same as what we saw Mother's Day, with temperatures expected to top off in the upper 80s to mid 90s.

Regardless, scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop across the region into the afternoon. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible along a almost stationary surface boundary in northern and central Indiana.

Mon: High: 81 Low: 67 Mostly cloudy. The rain won't be continuous and the sun will be out at times, but be ready for rain, especially during the afternoon and evening, when the air is most unstable. Showers and storms will be periodic, much like bands on a tropical system. Low clouds Monday morning, burning off to partly sunny skies.
