Warm Saturday, showers storms and cooler weather to follow

We’re seeing a beautiful start to the weekend, but showers and storms move in starting later tonight.

Today: Warm air is in place; we’ll see highs in near 80 across the state. It’ll be mostly sunny with a light southerly breeze.

Tonight: A system moves into the region that brings showers and the chance for storms (a few of which could be strong in western parts of the state. Rain chances really ramp up around midnight. During the late evening / overnight hours, the chance for severe storms will be relatively minimal across the Hoosier state, although strong-to-severe storms aren’t out of the question. The Storm Prediction Center has the western half of the state under the Marginal (level 1 out of 5) risk for severe storms. Temperatures will drop to the low 50s.

Tomorrow: We’ll see scattered rain with lingering storms. Expect highs in the mid 60s, relatively early in the day as cooler air follows. It will be windy at times.

8 Day Forecast: Cooler air prevails with highs in the 40s Monday; lows will dip into the 30s. It’s also not out of the question that we could see some brief snow showers as this system exits the region. Warmer air returns later in the week.
