Live Doppler 13 Forecast Thursday 5/2/19 - Midday Update


Showers and thunderstorms are returning this morning with a few strong storms possible later this afternoon. Heavy downpours are likely, thanks to all of the moisture hanging in the atmosphere. There is a risk of severe weather for areas along and south of I-70. There is a higher risk in south central Indiana. Right now, a few isolated severe storms look possible, mainly in southeast Indiana after 2pm. However, stay weather aware today as storms could produce some damaging winds and large hail. Afternoon highs will climb into the mid 70s.

Showers and storms will continue this evening. Rain will start to taper off Friday morning, as the frontal boundary sinks across the Ohio River Valley. Temperatures will fall into the low 60s.

Friday will remain cloudy through the afternoon with highs in the upper 60s.

The boundary to the south will slowly lift late Friday into Saturday. This will trigger showers Saturday morning from south to north, especially along and south of I-70. It will be a steady rain but no lightning is expected at this point during the running of the Mini Marathon. It will be cool during the race, in the low 50s at the start and into the mid to upper 50s by late morning. Showers and a few isolated thunderstorms will linger into the afternoon, tapering off by Saturday evening. Afternoon highs only climb into the low 60s.

An area of high pressure will arrive Saturday evening, pushing the boundary to the south and allowing for a clearing late Saturday night. Sunday will be brighter and warmer with highs near 70 degrees under mostly sunny skies.

Monday looks warmer and sunny with highs in the upper 70s.

Rain chances return Tuesday and Wednesday.
