Showers, storms possible ahead of weekend cool down


A warm but windy morning is paving the way toward a major change that we will really feel late today and into the weekend.

A weakening line of showers/storms may move in by midday. But plenty of dry time in the morning. Though temperatures may not reach 90° will feel that warm with heat indices of 90°-95°.

Expect scattered to numerous downpours and storms along this front. These storms could delay the start of some Operation Football games...especially south of I-70 and east of I-65. The storms end sooner north-northwest and should be out of the state by 9pm. There is a marginal risk for severe weather in much of Indiana today.

This opens the door for much cooler air to begin the weekend. In fact, it will "feel" 40°-50°cooler Saturday morning as temperatures settle into the 50s. Saturday looks rather cloudy but we're not expecting much rain despite the fact it may "gloomy" from time-to-time. Better rain chances set in southern Indiana where the front stalls.

It will be seasonably cool for the Circle City Classic parade, the IU, Purdue and Ball State games tomorrow.

Sunday looks like the best day of the weekend with plenty of sun and highs in the 70s. Rain and storms increase Monday and Tuesday as the pattern transitions. One front clears the state Wednesday and a stronger front arrives Friday to deliver the coolest air since April... equating to several mornings in the 40s and highs in the 50s/60s.
