Stormy end to the work week with sunshine set to return Saturday and Sunday

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Happy Friday, everyone! As expected, our Thursday was a stormy one with most areas reporting at least a bit of rainfall and some areas recording much more. 

Our neighbors to the southeast, Cincinnati, recorded their 2nd highest one day rainfall total ever at 5.02”, missing the all time record of 5.21” set back in 1964. 

We’re going to start Friday on a stormy note as another round of storms lurks just to our west. 

That line will move into our westernmost communities before sunrise.

The storms will slide slowly towards central and southern Indiana by 7-8 a.m.
