It is already a wet morning rush hour for many parts of Indiana. As the day progresses, most of the heaviest rain amounts will be south of Indianapolis. Clouds, waves of showers and locally heavy storms keeps high temperatures in the mid 70s... about 10 degrees below average.

The Red Bull Moto GP takes place this weekend at the Motor Speedway with times of rain and thunderstorms.Not looking for all day rains but be prepared during the next few days.

Rain amounts of 1-2 inches will be common in the southern half of Indiana by Sunday morning. Totals should mostly be below 1 inch in Northern Indiana where drier air at the onset will lower totals. We're expecting cooler than normal temperatures much of next week.
