Updated timing on Saturday storm chances

Angela Buchman

There were a few clouds near sunset Friday evening, but it was clear enough to see the almost full moon. The moon will be full early Saturday morning. The moon is closer to the earth so it will appear bigger and brighter Friday night and Saturday. This is called a supermoon and this is the first of 3 this year. The other 2 are on August 10 and September 9.

It will be a dry Friday night, with increasing clouds. Lows are forecast in the lower and middle 60s.

There will be a complex of storms to watch developing across the northern parts of Illinois late Friday night. What is left of this complex of storms will be close enough to central Indiana on Saturday that we include scattered storms in our forecast. It will not rain all day, but keep an extra eye on the weather if you have outdoor plans. The timing on this complex of storms keeps changing. Right now this complex is forecast to impact northern and western Indiana between 7am and noon and the southern half of the state between noon and 3pm. There will be changes to the timing, as we new information. Stay tuned for updates. The slight risk for severe weather includes the northern part of the on Saturday. This includes: Lafayette, Kokomo, Marion and Hartford City.



Our unsettled weather pattern continues on Sunday. All of central Indiana is under the risk for severe weather on Sunday. More scattered storms are in the forecast Sunday and Monday.

Highs will be in the lower and middle 80s on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Much cooler air arrives Tuesday, with lows in the 50s and highs only in the 70s.
