Storm threat returns to central Indiana

News

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — After a nice stretch of summer like heat, our dry streak comes to and end with several rounds of storms moving through the area.  

Tonight:

Should keep with partly cloudy, breezy and warm conditions through much of the evening.  We’ll likely see showers and storms work in from central Illinois by very late tonight, and probable during the overnight hours.  Scattered storms continue heading into the Thursday morning commute.

Lows dip to the middle 60s across central Indiana.

Thursday:

We’re tracking two rounds of shower and storms working through the area.  The first will roll through during the morning hours, with a break coming around lunch time.

 The second round of storms will move in by the late afternoon/early evening hours.  With the heating of the day, some of those storms could have a little more “pop” with them.

The Storm Prediction Center has much of central Indiana in a Marginal Risk for severe storms Thursday afternoon. 

Primary threat will be damaging straight line winds, but large hail and an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.

Meanwhile, highs will take a bit of a hit thanks to the rain, only topping out in the middle 70s.

Friday:

Some lingering showers and isolated storms will be possible to close out the week.  It won’t be a washout, so many dry hours on tap in between storm chances, Friday.

That said, much of the area in a Marginal Risk for severe storms.  Again, damaging straight line winds will be the primary threat, but large hail or an isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.

Weekend:

Looks great for the Mini Marathon Saturday morning, with wake up temps in the mid 50s, and starting line temps in the upper 50s to around 60°.  We’ll finish the day with highs in the middle 70s.  A few isolated showers and storms return to the forecast, but not until Sunday evening – so day time hours both days should be beautiful!

8 Day Forecast:

Extended looks nice as we head into the work week.  Temperatures slightly above average, and looking dry for the first half of the week.
