As expected, spotty downpours and thunder developed over central Indiana today. There remains a chance of storms into this evening. The best chance is in west central parts of the state that are closer to the upper low causing the storms.

We're not advertising to cancel outdoor plans this evening, but realize if you're under one of these cells torrential downpours and lightning are likely. After sunset the atmosphere settles down again.

However the upper low moving over top central Indiana may provide just enough lift for isolated showers into Saturday morning. It's a small chance, but a chance nonetheless.

The Indiana State Fair begins mostly dry in the morning, but daytime heating and the upper system trigger more scattered heavy storms in the afternoon. Not every backyard gets wet, but some locations may pick up a half inch to an inch of rain quickly.

This disturbance departs to allow for a dry Sunday and beginning of next week when temperatures near normal for a change. Have a great weekend and keep an eye on radar the next 24 hours.
