Mostly dry today with better storm chances Friday and Saturday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Good Thursday morning, everyone! We saw at least a little bit of rainfall in most areas yesterday, much more in some spots. 

We’ll start the morning with partly cloudy skies and temps will hover in the upper 60s as you head out the door to work or school this morning. 

Temperatures will rise quickly with plenty of sunshine and a southerly breeze. Expect highs to top out in the mid 80s this afternoon, just about average for this time of year. 

With rising temps and ample moisture, a Marginal Risk for severe storms is in place in far northern Indiana for a few strong storms expected to develop late this evening. 

I think we stay dry here in the Circle City and temps will slowly sink into the mid 70s just before midnight. 

The Friday morning commute looks pleasant and very similar to this morning with plenty of sunshine and temps in the mid to upper 60s to start the day. 

Head down to Monument circle for National S’more Day! Chefs will be serving up gourmet s’mores for a $5 donation. Temps through midday will climb through the upper 70s to low 80s. 

Highs Friday afternoon will peak in the upper 80s with a mix of sun and clouds for most of the day. 

The 25th Dan Patch Stakes tomorrow night will not be entirely rain free as a cold front dives our direction. 

Storms will develop by 3-4 p.m. and continue to sag southward by late evening, bringing rain and storms to central Indiana right around or just after dinner time. 

We’ll see another chance for rain through the first half of the weekend before things calm down a bit by Sunday. 

Rain chances look to remain fairly minimal the next 5 days and high temps will remain in the low to mid 80s after tomorrow. 

Better rain and storm chances will return by next Wednesday and Thursday.
