Good Evening Muncie! Temperatures are in the lower 90’s due in part to a combination of strong upper air ridging and light surface winds. Light to calm surface winds has allowed for the air to warm since the air has not been mixing with the air aloft. It may not feel as hot because the dew point are in the lower 60’s across the area. Once the sun has set then temperatures should drop more quickly as cloud cover lessens.
We are tracking a threat for severe weather on Friday as a cold front passes through our area during the day. Timing and the type of threat are still being worked on as the system approaches. As of now this appears to be more of a wind threat than a hail or tornado threat for our area. We will come out with any other updates as follows.
