Strong storms for some this evening and more on the way

Widely scattered heavy storms continue to dot central Indiana this afternoon and early evening. Though lightning and downpours appear to be the main threats today, locally severe wind and hail are possible in stronger storms…especially southwestern Indiana where the atmosphere is most unstable. We’ve heard of numerous trees down in Brazil from likely downburst storm winds earlier today.


Storms may diminish in a few hours and many may not see a drop of rain until Tuesday morning.


Computer model consensus indicates widespread storms to impact the area again early Tuesday, with potential for damaging wind and certainly heavy rain that will impact the morning commute.


It’s uncertain how much redevelopment will occur after this complex passes to the east by midday. Additional storms are possible Tuesday afternoon but at this point it appears the best instability and wind shear will be displaced farther south along the Ohio River. But stay tuned for potential changes.


Less humid air arrives Tuesday night and paves the way for sunny, pleasant conditions Wednesday into Friday afternoon. Lows may drop into the 50s Thursday morning and highs in the 70s look likely for a few days.

Warmer, humid air builds in for the weekend and may trigger new storms beginning as early as Friday night. However…there should be plenty of dry hours this weekend too. Stay weather aware friends – Sean Ash
