Storm chances return this weekend

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An active pattern settles in, bringing several chances for rain and storms over the extended period.

Friday night:

Should be a relatively quiet and comfortable night. Clouds should increase gradually through late night. Can’t rule out a few stray showers after midnight, especially in our western counties. Better rain chances will hold off until near daybreak Saturday.

Overnight lows fall to the lower 60s.

Frontal system will sag into the state to start off the weekend, bringing with it scattered shower and thunderstorms. While it won’t rain all day, expect on-again, off-again showers and storms through much of the day.

A few storms during the afternoon hours could be severe, with much of the area under a marginal risk for severe storms, and areas of southern Indiana under an elevated slight risk for severe storms.

Highs top out in the upper 70s.


Boundary camps out over the state for Father’s Day. More rain, with a few storms possible. A line of storms early Sunday morning could be on the strong side. All of central Indiana is under a marginal risk for severe storms.

For both days, damaging winds and large hail will be the primary threats.

Best chances for rain on Sunday come in the morning. While the afternoon may not be completely dry, there should be more isolated showers, meaning more dry time across much of the area for Sunday afternoon.

Highs top out in the lower 80s.

8 day forecast:

Active weather pattern continues for the new workweek, with nearly daily rain and storm chances. The biggest concern for the upcoming week will be the potential for flooding, with the risk of multiple rounds of heavy rain.
