Scattered rain and locally heavy storms will impact central Indiana between now and 9 p.m., with the activity diminishing from west to east. Though organized severe weather isn’t anticipated, a severe wind gust can’t be ruled out in stronger cells.



Lightning and torrential downpours are the main threats. The threat of storms should be over by 11pm and this boundary sinking south sets the stage for dry, but warm Tuesday.



Expect muggy overnight lows of 65 to 70 and highs Tuesday with decent sunshine rebound into the lower and middle 80s.



There is a slight shower/storm chance in southern Indiana, but much of the viewing area will be dry.



We’re advertising that you be weather aware Wednesday with a heightened risk of severe weather. It’s still two days away but the “modeled” atmosphere puts all modes (including tornadoes) of severe storms on the table then.



We’ll have to wait and see how a potential upstream storm complex will impact the atmosphere that day. At this point there are more questions than answers but the “potential” is there and deserves your attention. Pleasant, less humid air builds in behind this system Wednesday night and allows for a nice stretch of weather Thursday into Saturday afternoon


Though most of Saturday looks nice, there is a chance of showers and storms after 8pm… but a lot of the day will be great.


The Vintage Indiana Food and Wine Festival takes place this Saturday at Military Park from noon to 6pm, and the weather looks promising at this time. Have a great evening and keep tabs on radar with heavy storms around – Sean Ash
