National Weather Service Indianapolis IN
308 AM EDT Thu Jul 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Hot, Humid and active weather is expected the through the end of
the work week. High pressure southeast of Indiana will continue to
allow a warm and humid air mass across Central Indiana. Meanwhile
aloft a quick moving Jet Stream flow through the upper midwest and
great lakes will push several upper level weather disturbances
into the region. This will result several rounds of showers and
thunderstorms that may push into Central Indiana through the start
of the weekend.

A cold front is expected to across our area late Sunday bringing
cooler, less humid and sunny weather for Monday into Wednesday.
